 And hard on Maanca's heels we have our second Team ID!





Thanks to a tip from a friend, we can now say that TEAM 5 is:

James Makokis
Is a Physician specializing in gender transitioning

He is Cree, and runs two Clinics: One at the health centre on Enoch Cree Nation west of Edmonton, and another in the city of Edmonton.

https://newsinteractives.cbc.ca/longform/a-cree-doctors-caring-approach-for-transgender-patients

His TARC partner is believed to be his real life marriage partner Anthony Johnson, a Harvard graduate and Artist.

The couple also run a "technologically advanced, conservation-minded, agrarian-based homestead" and are marathoners according to this article:

Huh, by the sound of their bios and social media, I could see Irina & Dave being that cutthroat type of team the last 2 seasons lacked of. They both sound like "take no crap" kind of people :D

We might have another team. Not 100% but we'll put it here for now!

Team 3 Marsha Hudey and Kali Christ

Thanks to Linda BC2 and Plaidmoon!

An idea for athletic girls from Saskatchewan
Dark hair: Marsha Hudey, speed skating, 2017 saskatchewan female athlete of year, from White City outside Regina

Marsha Hudey looks like a match for the dark haired woman to me, especially the nose and eyebrows, though I've been wrong before. The dark haired woman appears to have large muscular legs which would fit for a speed skater.


I, myself, believe Kali Christ is her partner and they were teammates for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Both from SK and rep'd Canada.

2nd Chance Story for Kali:

Tall girl (Kali?) had her hair short and pink or purple dyed section. I think Kali had cut her hair recently.

Thanks for the credit, but I think Linda deserves all of it. At best, I had a small role. I never would have known who to look at if she hadn't come up with the name Marsha Hudey. As for Kali Christ, I was looking at a sighting photo of Marsha and a shorter blonde woman who I thought was her partner, but is apparently from another team. I looked at Kali Christ and rejected her because she isn't a short blonde woman.   :groan:

I remember in Montreal, there was a petition against Irina because of articles she wrote, such as 10 signs she's DTF on the first night.. I think she will be a bit controversial...

Yes, Kali is the taller one. She cut her hair short last year too.

Did the team look like Kali and Marsha? If so, we have 4 teams down!

Team 4 - Could they be wrestlers or boxers of some sort? I know we have a lot of athletes on the cast so far but what if?

The younger male has this edgy look and muscular build. The older male reminds me of Nick Kiniski a bit.

Food for thought....

I'm trying to ID this team - the older man/younger man team. Could the older man be Alec Dewdney - over 75 yrs old, a personal trainer for the "mature" adult. He's been competing in bodybuilding since 2009. Him and another personal trainer (Dave Avery) applied for TARC in 2015. His partner now has long hair shaved on the sides and may not be the same man as in 2015 (who’s bald in current photos)

That would make him the oldest contestant in TAR history, the current record is 72 held by a TAR Ukraine contestant. I was wondering based on the photos if we could be dealing with an age record.

When I was at the Kamloops Airport, I saw them and left them alone cause until they grabbed their bags and went to the check in, I had no clue they were a team cause of the older man.
