All three teams are tied for last and this a car race to the pitstop!

We are back: All thre teams arrive art the same time omg and are running to the pitstop.

This is intense!

K/R arrive in 6th. AE arrive in 7th right behind them. MC just behind them and are in last. They are eliminated from the race ... with an EP in their pocket. :(

All 7 teams now arrive at the pitstop to get the news about the Chevrolet task. The winners are: Kenneth and Ryan they win 5k!

Next time: Beijing, China. Tour of the Great Wall leaves them lost in translation. Backstreet driving, backbreaking detour (synchronized diving).

Despite being the best and most consistent team on the race so far, Sam & Paul have not been given a lot of screen time.

The camping task was used before in S2 wasn't it? ???

Also, why have they gone back to BC, when they spent Leg 1 there? ??? Why didn't have Leg 2 in BC and then Leg 3 in Alberta.

Why did M and C get eliminated with an EXPRESS PASS???  :groan:
HOWE DOES HE DO THAT?

The S2 task was to recreate a campsite - physically set up the tent, not a spot the difference task.

WHAT. AN. EPISODE!!!  :hoot:  Definitely the best Leg so far.  Was it just me or did this Leg seem super long?  ??? 

2 Route Info tasks, a RB, which I was certain was gonna be followed by the Pitstop, but then the Detour! :o  I said it before, but the US version could seriously learn from this.

The placements were total opposite from last Leg - Top 3 Teams were near the bottom last Leg, and the bottom 2 Teams came 1st & 2nd last Leg.
Glad to see the 3 EP's are out of the race this early - This must be some kind of record, having all the EP's come in, and then outta play in the space of a Leg.  ???

Ryan & Kenneth are still annoying me, but they were a lot calmer this Leg, so hopefully they stay that way.
Wishlist for Next Returnee Season:
Kym & Alli - Misti & Jim - Mike & Rochelle - Hayley & Blair - Ernest & Jin - Cindy & Rick - Tiffany & Krista
 - Scott & Blair - Mike & Liz

.... The World is Waiting! ....

Actually like this episode! It was jam packed with the placement switches  :bunny

Some of the team's personalities are really coming out now! I don't think Sam and Paul are going to win if there is no substance to them in the next couple of legs.

Korey and Ivana killed the detour.

Footrace at the end was intense.

Not surprised at the elimination (or the first 3 teams eliminated). The bottom 3 teams for Leg 1 were the ones eliminated so far.

Megan/Courtney got Kelly and Kate'd. Had they survived they would have been eliminated in China for sure. Next leg, seems brutal!
Amazing race canada 2 3 4

That pottery scene with Korey and Ivana was supposed to be a reference to the movie Ghost?

I've never seen said movie, so I genuinely thought some sparks were flying between them  :funny:

Awful episode. Despite there being so many tasks I still feel nothing about the majority of this cast and Kenneth & Ryan are still the worst. I feel bad hearing their story about their friends, but outside of that every time they speak, I cringe. When they yell, I instinctively hit the F10 key to mute them.

Hopefully China is better but outside of the tourists task (hopefully some drama like 15's Japan task comes!), synchronized swimming... eh.

Everytime they have gone international they have done a task.

S2-Macau
S3-Argentina
S4-Vietnam and Cuba

... very creative

Seems another Castlegar location was cut from the airing. Chances Casino.

It was seen in filming, and Selkirk's article mentioned it among the other locations, too.

The airport parking is right beside the casino. Maybe that's why.

Chances Castlegar FB page coincidentally just addressed this on their post advertising the episode

"They showed up, but we're not allowed to film in the casino for security reasons. I believe they completed a task though"

Weird, the Macau casino had no issue back in in S2

Sounds sudden, I would think that means a team came in looking for directions perhaps.
