The Amazing Race Canada's Andrea and Ebonie say there's no grudge against Korey and Ivana

Montreal business partners Andrea and Ebonie – and the fifth team eliminated on Season 5 of The Amazing Race Canada – want to make one thing clear: they hold no ill will against their fellow racers.

“There’s no grudge against anyone,” Ebonie says the day after they were sent home.

In last week’s episode, Andrea and Ebonie formed an alliance with Montreal siblings Adam and Andrea and Toronto couple Sam and Paul to U-Turn either Karen and Bert, Team Give'r (Kenneth and Ryan) or best pals Korey and Ivana.

But the plan backfired, and Andrea and Ebonie found themselves in the bottom after getting U-Turned by Korey and Ivana.

In a surprise twist, it was a non-elimination leg so imagine the frostiness when the teams had an awkward encounter at the Ottawa airport before a flight to Newfoundland.

Ivana tried to apologize, saying it was nothing personal. But Ebonie was steamed saying, “I have nothing to say. I’m just having a hard time faking it in front of fake people.”

Looking back on it, the friends say they understand why the personal trainers U-Turned them.

“It’s not personal,” Ebonie says. “If we were them, we would have done it. At the end of the day, it’s a race. I think everyone is in survival mode and they’ll do what they need to do to get to the next leg.”

Given a fresh start, Andrea and Ebonie managed to stay competitive as racers traversed Western Newfoundland, but found themselves trailing after having to complete a Speed Bump, where they had to master the art of archery.

The ladies then found themselves up against Korey and Ivana in a Face-Off bowling challenge, the loser of which had to take a brief penalty before continuing.

Here’s where Andrea and Ebonie could have had their revenge.

“It wasn’t the fact that we wanted to beat them personally,” Ebonie emphasizes. “It wasn’t Korey and Ivana we wanted to beat; it could have been any other team. We just wanted to stay in the Race.”

But they lost the bowling competition and showed up last for the leg’s final challenge – memorizing 12 jokes for a set at Swirsky’s comedy club.

Were they hoping that it was maybe another non-elimination trek on the Amazing Race Canada?

“We kind of knew it was over,” Ebonie says.

“You have to be kind of realistic about it,” Andrea adds. “We did get lucky being saved twice, so at the end of the day it is what it is.”

With five teams left in the Race, the friends say they are partial to Team Give'r (“We like their vibe”) and Sam and Paul.

“But we believe that everyone that’s in the Race deserves to be there and so we’re rooting for every single team,” Andrea says diplomatically.

Looking back at their gameplay Andrea and Ebonie say they have no regrets.

“A lot of the game has to do with luck – the taxi drivers you get and the locals you meet,” Andrea says. “It has a lot to do with circumstances and things you can’t control. If you look at all the challenges we did, we aced them. But we had a lot of problems with taxi drivers.”

“And the U-Turn,” Ebonie laughs.

And if there’s a chance to share a glass of bubbly with Korey and Ivana following next month’s finale, they’ll jump at the chance.

“Where and when?” Andrea says. “Let’s do it.”

“You really can’t take anything personally at the end of the day,” Ebonie adds.

The Amazing Race Canada airs Tuesdays on CTV.
