Harpooned in Iqaluit, Nunavut: Married Doctors from Montreal are the Fifth Team Eliminated from CTV’s THE AMAZING RACE CANADA

CTV  The Amazing Race Canada 

To tweet this alert: 


At the conclusion of tonight’s episode of CTV’s THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, it was revealed that Brett and Holly, married doctors from Montreal, were the fifth team eliminated from the competition series. The harsh tundra of Iqaluit, Nunavut pushed the couple to their limit when the “igloo challenge” turned out to be much more physical than anticipated. Inevitably, it was their decision to switch to the “harpoon hunter challenge” where it took Holly 28 throws to hit the target that resulted in their elimination.

“It was nice to see that even in the most gruelling of days we still held it together, supported each other, and didn’t fall apart,” said Holly about their experience on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA.


Next week on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA (airing Monday, Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and live on CTV Mobile), the remaining four teams race out of Nunavut and into Nova Scotia, but Vanessa and Celina have a hard time getting “in gear.” Then, Dave loses patience with Jet at a scary Roadblock and the stakes are raised at the second U-Turn of the Race. The remaining competitors vying for the historic half a million dollar grand prize are:


·         JET and DAVE – Best Friends

·         JODY and CORY – Brothers

·         TIM SR. and TIM JR. – Father and Son

·         VANESSA and CELINA – Sisters

The action continues this morning (Tuesday, Aug. 27 at 10 a.m. ET), with the digital companion series INSIDE THE RACE WITH BLACKBERRY. Hosted by Danielle McGimsie (@MissDMcG) and Teddy Wilson (@TeddyWilson), this morning’s episode features brothers Jody and Cory in-studio with exclusive footage from the first time they encounter Tim Sr. and  Tim Jr. after their second non-elimination.
