In all the excitement over TAR Australia this week, I just remembered about an hour ago that Canada has an episode tonight. But here's a thread for it.

Brendan and Connor first to the museum

Clue, comes with a cell phone. Using the phone, book tickets using the Expedia App for the museum

OOR / Overnight rest (not shown)

Task: Search 3000 stamp collection of all issued Canadian stamps, fill out 13 blank stamps (their cost price is missing)

There is no running in the museum, so teams are speed walking  :lol:

Sisters refusing to help Craig and Catherine

Sisters/ Jessie and Marika first to finish and both call for a check. Both are correct!

Bev/Veronica next - third

Clue: RB: Who wants to be put on the spot?

Make your wait to the Canadian Space and Aviation Museum. Find a ticket to fly a De Havilland. They must then fly in the plane and spot a Huge M, which will lead them to their next destination, Montebello, Quebec.

Nella, Marika, Veronica will be doing the RB

COurt/Ali and Craig/Catherine help each other out and they both finish the RI in 4/5

Brendan and Connor are the last team to finish

The first 3 teams searched for tickets at the same time, but the order did not change when they found the tickets.

Nella and Marika are the first to find the letter M!  Nella lands first.

Clue: Face off! Find the Chateau Fairmont Montebello. They will face off in a game of Croquet. First team to clear 2 balls and hit the center target will win the faceoff. Last team will wait out a 15 min time penalty.

Craig gets upset as Catherine gets into the airplane. "She wanted to soar in the skies, and she is getting her wish" Catherine and Ali find the clue right after (letter M) along with Connor

First three teams are on their way to the Faceoff.

Jessie and Marika / Sisters both go different directions after exiting the ferry.

Jessie and Marika first to the faceoff.

Bev and Veronica second. Which means the sisters went the wrong way

Sisters just realized they are going the wrong way as there are two CHateaus...

Craig and Catherine are third to Faceoff. Sisters are fourth

First faceoff is won by Jessie and Marika!

Clue:Search 6 different witnesses (actors playing a role) to a murder mystery. They must ask them what they know about the crime (which will be given in French). If they figure out who the murderer is, they will get their next clue.

Bev and Veronica win the second faceoff.

Jessie speaks French! So this is easy for his team.

Sisters win third faceoff vs Craig and Catherine.

Up next its the latter vs Court and Ali

Well, if nothing else, Brendan & Connor have shown that they're not unstoppable and are, in fact, very much beatable with this leg's result.

Loved the stamp challenge and the fact all teams were there at the same time.
Frannela had a great strategy.

Very interesting edit about tension within those 3 teams alliance.

Loved this was a self drive leg.
Simple but very pretty RB.

I LOVED the murder mystery challenge. Really fun.
Editing for the last two teams was awesome.

Challenges do seem to be all short enough to have teams very close together, very fitting for a leg that features a Face-off.

Seems silly to have a double elim, followed by a nom-elim. Wonder if they were limited by the numbers of cars and flights booked ahead of time for the leg. It made leg 7 higher stakes, but couldn't they just made both 7 and 8 single elimination legs.

Beverly and Veronica had a great leg, but they have yet to win a leg.

I don't understand the producer's point of view with eliminations after the covid issue....

Like why eliminate one teams without giving the the chance to come back, but to finish that same leg with a KOR (with no elimination, like they could had the same result and keep on racing but with an elimination (like TAR32 leg 1)...
And now we have a double elimination, following a NEL... like.....why?
I feel bad for Cederic and Tychon.. I would be pissed lol

They could have done a single elimination last leg, have this leg also a EL, and have the same results of 6 teams going to New-Brunswick (if this was really an issue of plane tickets...)

IDK

And that's how the alliance crumbles.

It's been a while since we've seen a team ditch an alliance. Led to some awkward moments due to the leg structure. I would think that there is more to Gatineau than the museum. The Roadblock was like the ultralite task from TAR 12, but no really struggled. The Face Off was fine with a nice setting. Also, I know people have used the argument that putting a Face Off in the middle of a 45-minute episode gives the final team a chance, but that really hasn't been the case since 2017. The murder mystery task was fun, and I liked the added element of French.
