Good: tie between the Cavaleri siblings acing the mental RB and les Girls getting saved again

Bad: Give'r back to their old tricks as enabled by Johnny "Mustard" LaChapelle

Ugly: the weather, perhaps (already rolling my eyes at all the non-Canadians about to whine about this episode)

Well to be fair, when this was filmed the entire Ottawa Valley was flooded - the worst its been in years. The Ottawa River was particularly dangerous. The paths around the Pitstop/Cdn Museum of History were cordoned off.

I imagine any natural born citizen taking their own country's citizenship test would find it very difficult. Mark L told me on Twitter that he failed the simulated test 3 times. I believe it.

Actually, people born in Canada usually have a hard time taking the test, since it's about Canada's history and how Canada's government works + a bunch of things about Canada. Most people don't know their history, and are not that informed about how the government works.

Liked the leg design, with RB, Detour followed by ARI.
Liked that the W-Turn board was placed after completing Detour task (that's how it should be), and there was still a relevant ARI afterwards, not just complete Detour and head to Pit Stop.

And despite liking that the girls were saved, I always find it frustrating to have legs that feature a U-Turn or a W-Turn to be nom-elim.

Just saw it. Sorry I couldn't make it last night, guys!

Seemed like an alright leg, based on filming sightings I was expecting this to be the dud of the season (a la Season 4 Hamilton).

This is technically the first two-province leg since season 1 in the north. The history museum is on the Quebec side of the river in Gatineau. Hilarious how bad they failed the citizenship test, but then again those of us born here never had to take it.

I would have expected after the U-Turn they had to go inside and eat beaver tails (it's a Canadian pastry. Actually rather delicious)

Are we being set up for a give'r win? First they race in the town of Ryan's alma mater, then he runs into his brother on the street :p

Questions (as in what were they thinking?)

WHAT is the point of a Double U-Turn if you are going to have a NEL??   :gaah:

Why didn't the Siblings just put up a team they knew was ahead of them? That wouldn't hurt any feelings...or is there a new rule not to do that? ???

Wonder who ole Mustard man was reading to find the teams? :funny:

I liked the tasks. The parking was original tho product placement. Horses are fun. The art task looked complicated and interesting.
Would have loved to see the team wrong answers highlighted.  :sab

I took it and failed but heck I don't even know the provinces lol.  :escape
