Previously on The Amazing Race Canada!

Six teams raced though western Newfoundland.

And Sam got a message telling him he was into medical school. It also put them in first place.

Ken and Ryan struggled, but we're in the top 3.

It wasn't a laughing matter at the roadblock for Andrea and Ebonie, getting them eliminated from the race!

Ad break!

Karen cannot find the marked stand, but eventually finds it.

Paul is doing the rb, not Sam!

Paul thinks he found the woman. Korey went to the beach lol

Karen cannot find her Mola. She feels like something is missing. Paul finds it!!

Detour: Up for a Drink, Tasting 5 beer and identifying them, out of a total of 14 flavours.
Down for the count: Learn 6 boxing combos, then perform them. Sam: Lets do the beer its fun lol.

THey are correct. Make your way to Sports Complex smth.

SP now giving it a shot. Paul messes up.

KR now getting another check they get only 1/5.

They now decide to switch detours.

They are in last.

AA arrive to the boxing. Andrea: I always win the fights. Sam doing the boxing now and he is right. Paul now trying it. They are correct. They are in second. Paul feels light headed.

Clue: Its time to band together.  Learn band routine and lead marching band. They were playing the intro like TAR24

Korey doesn't fit in the clothing.

KR arrive at the boxing now.

OMG the instructor messed up KB's routine (though its partially their fault).

adam gets the boxing right.

Andrea gets it. They are in third.

We are back. Bert tries it again. He is right. They are now of to the drum task.

Ivana feels annoyed.

KB have now arrived at the drum. All 5 teams are now here.

KI try it again. Ivana blanked. Ivana "we have been here hours" She wants to take a penalty.

Its now night fall.

Andrea: I don't understand, but okay.

SP now getting a try. They are right. The clue is a pic of Jon at the Panama sign. The pitstop is at one of two Panama signs, and teams need to pay attention to the correct one. Tricky!

KI now get another try and they are correct. They are in second.

KR/KB still practicing. AA Give it a shot. They mess up.

SP Arrive first. They are team #1. SP:This is the hardest leg of the race.

Prize: Trip to New Orleans, Arizona.

KI arrive at the wrong Panama sign lmao!!

Commercial.

Also no animal connection this leg, so there goes that memory task idea.

Was wondering when soup would come into play. Campbell's was a sponsor, yet we didn't hear a peep out of them all season.

Karen & Bert still alive  :conf:

Regina!!  :dick I was hoping it was elsewhere in SK (my hopes were on Moose Jaw. Crushed right now) since we didn't see anything on that leg.

Really, stacking Campbell's Soup for the third Saskatchewan visit?

Ah well, I can't complain about the repeat S29 NEL sequence when it gave Karen a taste of what happened to Jen and Kisha (technically Mrs. Hoffman, a non-racer).

With this plus, the beer from TAR China from a few weeks ago, Beer seems to be quite beneficial.....mostly if racers get to drink it, not just carry them, that is.

Good one, that was a whole display of animals, even if they weren't live ones, and the clue did point them directly to what they were supposed to look for there.

Yeah, they were specifically told to look for the white wolf. There's the animal connection this leg.

Great, difficult leg. Definitely beats TAR29's Panama visit (though speaking of which, I have more respect for Floyd now as a drum major. Apparently that is not easy :lol:

The leg was okay but am I the only one who finds this season... boring?

Not boring in the sense of I can't watch the episodes without falling asleep, but boring in the sense that everyone has fallen into a state of being consistent with their placements and more or less being stuck into them. It's unexciting to see the same teams always fighting for first with the same teams always trailing.

I agree that this season seems off...

But I feel like we have more *suspense* that last season regarding team placement. I mean last season it was always going to be between the girls and Jillian/Emmett, while this season I feel like anymore in the top 5 (except Karen & Burt) may have a chance to win this.

I think the problem this year may be the locations, Vancouver for a third time, another BC leg, Ottawa and Regina again. I liked the international legs, but only the Newfoundland and Alberta legs in Canada were good.

Also the teams are a bit bleh. I don't know....I don't relate to the teams that much. I feel like we need more 'regular' everyday person teams. I don't want  to see just top-model/super good looking people. Beside Deb & Shabbir, and maybe Karen & Bert, I feel like every other person is like a 20 something good looking/athletic/smart, etc. I want to see grandparents, curvey people, nerds, the girl next door, etc.

Anyway, I still love this season and will continue watching, but I wish for a more diverse cast.
