Amazing Race Canada 6 is a GO!!!!

....but only for heroes, because apparently we need 'em more every day.

Specifically, they want to cast inspirational people. The Jody and Cory, Nicole and Cormac, Nat and Meg, Jule and Lowell or Karen and Bert types. They want a full cast of Team Give'rs. People who inspire others.

Okay, I see your problem. You think you're just an ordinary person with an ordinary partner. But are you sure? Look at Nicole Foster. I bet she never thought she was anyone's hero until that day in the Yukon when she would not give up on that firing range. Heroes can come in many shapes and forms.

And here is Season 6's first twist: you can nominate a team you believe to be a hero - with or without their knowledge.

Everything you or a potential nominator needs to know is on the Official Casting site HERE but you MUST be quick! Casting closes at 11:59 PM EASTERN TIME on November 29th, 2017.

Good Luck to all who apply! And if all goes according to previous seasons, get ready to RACE by the end of April or the beginning of May, 2018.

The Bachelor Canada Weekly Results a.k.a. "Who Took the "Walk of Shame" This Week?"

Photo Courtesy Corus/The W Network
Who got roses? Who left in tears, broken-hearted that What's-His-Face didn't love her? Who questioned their very existence? You got questions? Here's your answers.

Also, I must provide you with a slight "Spoiler Warning": I'll be updating this as soon as possible AFTER the EAST COAST airing. I know, I know.  Western time-zone problems are a real thing.

But here's the thing - I believe in "event television." Yes, it's a thing too. I live-tweet episodes of my favourite shows, along with a lot of other fans. But, I consider myself a responsible Live-Tweeter, meaning I use the hashtag. So here's my Pro-Tip: If you use Twitter, and do not want to see spoilers of the episode as it's airing, JUST MUTE #BachelorCA or even the words Bachelor Canada. If, however, you insist on using Facebook well then, I'd have to first ask "Why?" (It's useless) Then I would probably tell you to stop following the show site.

Meet the Bachelor Canada's 20 Probable Future Ex-Fiances

Does the title of this post sound...oh, I don't know...a tad cynical to you? Should I tone it down a notch or two? Yah, but no. Damn it, I'm keeping it. I have little or no hope for this season. I am very sure we will be presented with more proof that it's the journey that's important, not a lasting relationship. This will be the fourth installment in The Bachelor/Bachelorette CANADA franchise, and so far no relationships have lasted.

Anyway, here are the girls vying for What's-His-Name's...whatever.

I'll post my first impressions as I go and/or get around to it. Some are just too darn easy. When I first looked at them, I thought, "How did they get the cast of The Bachelorette so right, but this seems so awfully wrong?" But now that I've had a closer look, I've come to realize these are very pretty girls. Some are downright stunning.

But...I'm still not sure about this lead. What the hell was wrong with Mike? Or that sexy tongue guy with the flowing, dark hair? What did Jasmine call him? Oh yeah...Sensual Tongue. Or what about Kyle, the giant cat-guy? He was adorable.

Also, fair warning. If you are looking for some damn politically correct, SJW reflective writing or if you are some sort of whack-job shipper looking for affirmation of your fixation...this is not the place for you. I will be just as critical as every other season. I'm going to have fun with the absurdity.

WARNING: Just in case you didn't understand the gist of the title of this post, let me remind you - THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE. DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON"T WANT TO KNOW. Otherwise, click away.

And They're Off...Amazing Race Canada Season 5

Good Luck.
Make Canada Proud.
Race safe...

It has begun. Filming for The Amazing Race Canada Season 5 began April 26, 2017. This is where you will find my Leg-by-Leg Spoilers, updated regularly.

And this is where I feel it is my solemn duty to inform you that there are spoilers here.

Although, knowing where they are going is not quite as bad as knowing which team is eliminated on which leg. 
Nope, I will do a separate post for that...and that will come later.

So, don't click through unless you want to know...
