Amazing Race Canada S4 - starts Tues

The superior TAR, especially compared to the US lately, returns June 28!

Also, season 2 winner Mickey Henry (of Mickey and Pete) just beat (for charity) the Guinness World Record for longest wakeboard ride today (old record was ~7h) and is currently in his 9th hour, which is live streaming here https://www.facebook.com/slightlyhumancreative/.

Edit: Live stream over, he made it to 10 hours.

Worked out for me when I logged out anyway, just ignore the log-in thing and click the video.

I watched a bit at his 5th or 6th hour and he said couldn't feel his arms then, so I have no idea how's still going close to 10h, crazy. His donation page is almost at $2000.

Yes, the last couple of seasons of the American version were pretty lame. Seems to have some characters on this one, looking forward to it.

Was hoping those two Chinese girls would get eliminated. Close.

Off to a weak start. First challenge gets shut down because of weather, and two teams already opted to take a penalty. Not overly impressed with it so far. And what happened to the grand prize? Now it's only a flight around the world and a Chevy vehicle? I realize that the prize wasn't $1 million like the US, but they've gone cheaper this year. I certainly hope this season improves.

Must have missed that. Thanks. Still a weak first episode. Couldn't be bothered to go back and watch again.

Definitely, I think I stop watching after the 2-3 episode. Pathetic.

Last season of ARC was the first time I enjoyed and followed it to the finish. So hopefully, this continues.

Does anyone know the social media accounts of the contestants? There is not much eye candy on this season of the race other than the 2 asian chicks.

The two Asian chicks are annoying as hell.

As an Asian woman I shake my head at their constant preoccupation with their fake eyelashes. My husband just laughs at them since he's dated a few of these types in the past lol! For fitness instructors, complaining that the fish challenging was physically hard makes me question their credentials for their class.

I was cheering the Asian girls were eliminated ... only to find out it was non-elimination. GAH.

...The magic eight ball would randomly say things and logic would never work. The eight ball is just a gimmick and a waste of time and effort. So equivalently, there is no possibility to "debate" you.
