The Amazing Race Canada (Canadian French: The Amazing Race Canada: Une Course Contre la Montre) is a reality television competition series that features teams in a grueling race across Canada and the world. The Race is divided into a series of legs and on each leg; teams strive to reach the Pit Stop where they are greeted by the host, Jon Montgomery. During each leg teams receive destination clues and challenges to complete in order to move onto the next task. The first team to cross the finish line wins $500,000 in cash and prizes. This prize is the largest grand prize ever awarded for a Canadian competition series. Commissioned by CTV, The Amazing Race Canada is produced by Insight Productions in association with Bell Media and with the support of Profiles Television. On the airdate of the first season finale it was announced that CTV Bell Media had ordered another season of The Amazing Race Canada. Casting began in fall 2013 and the second season aired in summer 2014. New to the eligibility requirements for season 2 were clauses that applicants must possess a valid Canadian passport, and be able to travel not only within Canada but around the world; meaning that, unlike the first season, the race travelled to destinations outside of Canada, closer to its American counterpart.
The Amazing Race - Clues - Netflix
Clues are found throughout the race in sealed envelopes, normally inside clue boxes. They give teams the information they need and tasks they need to do in order for them to progress through the race. Route Info: A general clue that may include a task to be completed by the team before they can receive their next clue. Detour: A choice of two tasks. Teams are free to choose either task or swap tasks if they find one option too difficult. Roadblock: A task only one team member can complete. Teams must choose which member will challenge the task based on a brief clue about the task before fully revealing the details of the task. Fast Forward: A task that only one team may complete, allowing that team to skip all remaining tasks and head directly for the next Pit Stop. Teams may only claim one Fast Forward during the entire race. Canada 150 Challenge: A series of special challenges during season 5 to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Confederation of Canada. They had no effect on the gameplay mechanics of the “Race”
