Preview of Episode 8 "I Just Wanna Win" in Havana, Cuba

Leg 8 heads to Havana, Cuba. I can hear the complainers now, droning on with their persistent crap about the Canadian Race should stay in Canada, and what does Cuba have to do with Canada? Well, you morons, think: the U.S. embargo on Cuba while Canada maintained a relationship with them. And also think of Trudeau and Castro. That's Pierre Elliot Trudeau, not Justin. Really. But I have figured out why these people are so adamant the show stays in Canada. They really don't know too much about their own country and have to depend on a reality program to learn about Canada. Well, watch TVO or go take a night class somewhere or something, because this is the format for Amazing Race Canada.

Preview of Episode 7 "I Could Be Prime Minister"

There are major spoilers here that may offend the squeamish. 

Oh, the horror! The horror!

As all six teams survive a KOR at the pitstop in Hamilton, and are now heading to Kingston, we are all left with the worst cliffhanger since "Who killed J.R.?" or, more recently, "Who did Lucille kill?" We are all on pins and needles over the fate of poor, poor dear Joel and Ashley. All I can say is...

Recap of Episode 5: "The Little Blind Tugboat That Could"

I really looked forward to this episode. Following two very dynamic and difficult legs in Vietnam, it was supposed to be the gem of the season. Surely this was going to be the best of the domestic legs this year. I wanted to be overwhelmed by the beauty of northwest British Columbia, entranced by the Haida peoples, and most of all, thoroughly entertained by a well constructed TAR leg.

I wasn't. Well, it was gorgeous and the Haida segment was nice, don't get me wrong. But I just felt they could have done so much more with it. And this leg had only 3 tasks, two of which were Roadblocks. No Detour. I think it made for a boring leg, making it very linear. No real flipping back and forth of positions. And the timed seaplane and ferry departures only aggravated the situation.
