The third season of The Amazing Race Canada is a reality game show based on the American series The Amazing Race. It features twelve teams of two, each with a pre-existing relationship. The grand prize includes: a CA$250,000 cash payout, “gas for life” from Petro-Canada, the opportunity to fly for a year anywhere Air Canada flies worldwide in Business Class, and two Chevrolet Colorado "Z71" Trucks. For the third year in a row, Jon Montgomery returned as the host.

Contents

The season premiere was aired on July 8, 2015. Hamilton brothers Gino & Jesse Montani were the winners of this season of The Amazing Race Canada.

Development and filming

On September 23, 2014, CTV announced that the show was renewed for a third season during the second season reunion special.

This season, teams will face a brand new twist, called the Face Off, where teams have to compete head-to-head in a pre-determined challenge, where winning teams can move on to the next challenge, while the losing team must wait for new challengers. The team who looses the last "Face Off" must face a time penalty. This could potentially dramatically alter the placement order of teams throughout legs of the race. In an article for the official Amazing Race Canada CTV website, the "Face Off" was described as "first and exclusive" to the Canadian edition with host Jon Montgomery stating that they "invented" the twist despite having already been introduced under various names in at least five other Amazing Race editions worldwide.

This season featured sportscaster James Duthie, who helped the teams during the first Roadblock in Leg 1 and Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek, who greeted the teams at the Pit Stop of Leg 6 in his hometown of Sudbury, Ontario.

Casting

Casting began in November 24, 2014, and as in the previous two seasons, an online site was used for submission of applications and audition videos. The first three teams were revealed on June 15, 2015, with the rest named thereafter. The cast includes UFC mixed martial artist Elias Theodorou, footballer Nicholas "Nic" La Monaca and former CFL player Neil Lumsden. Hamilton Elliott is the first transgender contestant in the major English-language version of the Race. (Jervi Li of the inaugural season of The Amazing Race Philippines was the first transgender contestant overall.)

Broadcasting

Similar to the previous season, after episode 7, a special mid-season reunion/recap titled "After The Race" aired. Hosted again by James Duthie, the program reviewed the events of the first 7 episodes with the first 6 eliminated teams, minus Amanda who was unable to attend. Duthie hosted another "After The Race" immediately after the season finale with every contestant present to review the season as a whole.

Marketing

Scotiabank discontinued their sponsorship while BMO Financial Group became the newest sponsor.

  • At the Edmonton City Hall, teams had to find the justice of the peace, who is performing a wedding ceremony, and interrupt her to receive their next clue.
  • At the Ottewell Curling Club, teams had to take for a Face Off challenge. There, they had to compete against each other in a game of curling. One team member would deliver the stone while their partner would sweep it as close as possible to the center of the target, or "button", at the end. After 8 stones each, the team whose stone was closest to the center of the button would win their next clue. The last team at the Face Off would have to turn over an hourglass and wait for the sand to run out before they could continue racing.
  • After getting the clue, teams instructed to go to Petro-Canada gas station in nearby St. Albert to find their next clue. Each team was given a Petro-Points card loaded with 250,000 points, all of which they had to spend in the store within 90 seconds, shopping for snacks and drinks only. If the products in their shopping cart totalled the maximum points, they received their next clue.

    In the final Roadblock of the Race, the team member that didn't perform the first Roadblock was given a single ski of specific height and binding size, and had to search among thousands of skis on racks for the one that completes the set, then show it to an instructor. Once they had a matching pair, both team members had to ride the Peak 2 Peak Gondola to Blackcomb Peak and make their way to Momentum Ski Camp.
