It's a very popular destination, for Canadians as well as the rest of world. I would find it very hard to believe sponsors wouldn't be all over that.

That all but kills a full international season, because 8-9 more international legs would be more expensive than just a couple UK legs.

Do you guys think Australia or New Zealand are out of the picture?

Hopefully not. However, if they only have 2 legs to go international, i wouldn't think they would go many hours away. They should go to America or Mexico. That would make more sense.

I was thinking that for Canada's 150th anniversary, they would only go to international location that have a deep connection to Canada... I'm shock they never visited the UK yet, I mean the confederation of Canada was accepted by the Queen in London, that would have been a good time to visit the city (and the building in which it was signed)... Maybe a visit to Ireland, with all the Irish people who immigrated in Canada in the early days of our country.

And the US would make sense... like in New-England or places where we hd battles against the US

I highly doubt they will visit the United States. About 75% of all Canadians live within 100 miles of the border, and as such many have been there. The Canadian audience would not find the U.S. to be an exciting place to visit. The only place I can even remotely see is Hawaii, and even then tasks would most likely center around the native Hawaiian culture.

Unfortunately, with the US muslim ban, there could be issues for some of the contestants as well.

I don't think this law applies to Canadians

If you haven't been cast as a racer for the upcoming season - here is your best chance to get your beautiful face on screen in Season 5!
You just need to buy some  Campbells Chunky Soup (or chili btw) and enter.

https://chunkyamazingcontest.com/

I think this kind of product promotion could be the saviour of the Amazing Race franchise.
Kudos to Insight, Campbells and CTV/Bell Media for doing this. :ty3:

Now go out and support the sponsor and enter the contest  :bunny
From there to here, and here to there,

Given past history, I assume that we are about one month away from needing to keep our eyes peeled for filming!!!  I can't wait for this season.  I love this show so much.

To think, somewhere all across Canada tonight, 20-24 people are going to have a restless night's sleep dreaming of the adventure they are about to go on.  I would LOVE to have dinner with a few of these teams to ask what they must be thinking/feeling. I know there is a strong non-disclosure agreement they sign so this would NEVER happen, but I would love a chance to hear a non-made for tv q&a of a "Before the Race".   I couldn't imagine what it would be like to be in their position.  I am 70% jealous OF them and 30% excited FOR them.   I cannot wait for the show to start!

Don't they usually start on a friday? (I think for season 1-3) and a thursday for last season, no?

I am thinking that they will start either next week, or the week after!!
Get ready :P
