Kenneth and Ryan are best friends who can come across as goofballs – which they are – but they have a surprising depth and perspective on the way they approach life. Kenneth and Ryan live their lives by one word – GIVE’R. Their personal motto, this pairs gives everything 100% passion and commitment. They live life to the fullest with no regrets.

Growing up in Collingwood, ON, the pair often crossed paths in town and became fast friends as teenagers, sharing a passion for skiing. The defining moment in their relationship came when they decided to pack up and move to Australia out of the blue. It was in Australia that they discovered another passion to share – surfing. Their lives now revolve around chasing adventure across the globe every chance they get.

When it comes to THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, Kenneth and Ryan know that individually they are awesome, but together they believe they are unstoppable. Where Kenneth is calm and collected, Ryan is hyper and always on the go. While they’re both a little worried about any mental and memory challenges that they might encounter, they know their energy and motivation will help them through anything.

FUN FACTS
Motto: “GIVE’R”

Kenneth McAlpine, 25, and Ryan LaChapelle, 25, best friends from Collingwood, Ont., who call themselves Team Give'r. "That's us," says Kenneth. "We give'r all we got, full commitment, 100 per cent." These two well-travelled surfer dudes will be easy to spot in their Hawaiian shirts. Think of them as mellower, sober Trailer Park Boys.

They're big skiers. Collingwood, Blue Mountain is the prime resort area in Ontario for that. Expecting some Andy & Tommy vibe, too.

KENNETH McALPINE & RYAN LACHAPPELLE

Remember these words (or maybe it’s one word) – “GIVE’R!”

It’s the life motto of two 25-year-old best friends from Collingwood, Ont., currently living in Rossland, B.C., and looking for places to surf in the summer.

High-energy party-animals in the mold of Bob & Doug, Wayne & Garth, FUBAR or Trailer Park Boys, they have been touted as the TARC contestants most likely to land their own show.

“We’re Team Give’r,” Ryan says. “We want to tell the world. Give‘r means, ‘Give ‘er all you got!’”

“When we first met as kids, we actually didn’t like each other,” Kenneth recalls. “We were the only two roller bladers in Collingwood, but you’d have different crews you’d hang out with. Finally, in high school, we had two classes together in grade 9, and we clicked.”

Kenneth’s a chef and Ryan’s an events coordinator at a ski resort. But surfing entered their lives when they decided to move to Australia a few years ago, practically on a whim. “We’d never even seen a surfboard,” Ryan says. “And then we started and it’s become the most addictive thing in our lives.”

I am hoping they will settle down a bit after they face a leg that isn't designed to fire them up, which leg one played on. I haven't written them off just yet. LOL It will be interesting to see them face a different kind of task.

I was going to say, they might once the pressure's on. Hopefully

So they were essentially cast because they're the embodiment of the Bob & Doug (Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis) "hoser" stereotype. Please at least don't let them imitate the latter's catchphrase on the race, lol ("a-roo-koo-koo-koo!")

Bob and Doug McKenzie were funny and likeable though. Blast these two off into Jupiter, I say.
