After an awkward first encounter where Courtney was pouring drinks behind the bar and Adam was being auctioned off for charity, these two went on an amazing snowboarding first date and instantly fell in love. They are both goofy and light-hearted, but also determined and competitive. They push each other’s buttons in all the best ways. Adam had a life-altering back surgery in 2015 that has given him a second chance at an active, healthy life. He lived for years with debilitating pain, was unable to work or do any of the things he loved. It was a long road, but he is now fully recovered. Adam’s surgery was also a defining moment for Courtney. She was able to learn a lot about the strength of her future husband while seeing him go through the process of rehab. She is a natural caregiver and was able to be there for him throughout his recovery. Their experiences, as well as their professions, have taught them just how fragile life is. Helping others is their passion and they feel blessed to have the jobs they do. Laughter powers this relationship. Sparks fly constantly, either from love or friction as their First Responders professions force them to lean on each other in uncommon ways. And it is that bond they think will help them make it to the final leg of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA.

Calgary first responders land spot on Amazing Race Canada

It’s a revelation that isn’t likely to surprise anyone: Amazing Race Canada is a lot harder than it looks.

That’s one of the few things Calgary’s Courtney Berglind and Adam Kovacs can reveal about their experiences on the elimination adventure series, which was filmed in secret locations in the past few months and will air on CTV beginning July 3.

In the sixth season, Amazing Race Canada has put its focus on Canadian heroes. Berglind is a nurse at Rockyview General Hospital, while Kovacs is a Calgary firefighter.

The couple, who are engaged, met seven years ago when Berglind was tending bar at an event where Kovacs was being auctioned off for charity.

They were nominated for Amazing Race Canada by friends when producers put a call out for teams who fit the hero concept.

They join nine other teams for Season 6, which include advocates, coaches, elite athletes, Mounties, navy sailors, retired air force pilots, mentors and volunteers.

The full cast was announced by CTV on Thursday. While the experience is over for the Calgarians, they are sworn to secrecy about their experiences. Still, whether they placed first or last or somewhere in between, Berglind and Kovacs were able to make some lasting friends.

“It’s a bond forged in fire,” says Kovacs.

The couple were fans of the show before they participated and had considered auditioning for other seasons before getting the call from producers.

“Being at your couch at home is so different than being in this pressure cooker of emotions and challenges, out of your comfort bubble,” Kovacs says. “It’s a whole different ball game. Both of our jobs are very stressful and we have a team backing us up. Here, we only had each other to rely on.”

The sixth season of Amazing Race Canada debuts July 3 on CTV.

Overload PDA & kissing, they clearly got nominated for the wrong show. Hate this team a lot.... I picture Courtney being a liability in this team.
