We've all talked about it, but many of us have never actually gone through with it. If you've always dreamt of competing on The Amazing Race, it's your time to shine. The Amazing Race Canada casting 2019 is officially open for season 8 and it's time for you to pick your partner.
According to a press release by CTV, The Amazing Race Canada was the most-watched series in the country last year. Therefore, making an appearance on this show is a pretty big deal. Starting today, October 10, 2019, you can apply to compete in the legendary race with your mom, BFF, S/O, or whoever you think will help you cross that finish line first.
"We're looking for Canadians who think they have what it takes to be a part of the nation's most-watched Canadian series. It's a life-changing adventure that starts with a simple application video," said Mark Lysakowski, Executive Producer and Showrunner, The Amazing Race Canada.
You heard the man, it only takes a simple little video. The submission deadline is Sunday, December 1 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Time to put your vlogging skills to the test and try to wow those producers. This could be your chance to compete with your partner to win the grand prize and have your journey watched by fans across the nation.
The Amazing Race Canada takes contestants around the country, from Canada's most metropolitan areas to places that you’ve definitely never heard of. You and your partner will work through challenges, puzzles, and tons of sticky situations only the best and most well-paired duos can complete.
If you're wondering what you could win, according to CTV, last season's winners walked away with a fat cheque for $250,000, two brand new Chevrolet Blazers, and a trip for two around the world. Not too shabby. Even if you don't win, you get the chance to travel around the country, meet incredible people, put yourself to the test, and be on T.V.
The application process is a little bit lengthy, but it'll be worth it when you get that acceptance email or phone call.
Some of the things you’ll need to outline during your application are the nature of your relationship with your partner, what’s motivating you both to win, the most defining moments in both of your lives, what past teams you’ve really identified with, and a whole lot of personal information. You also need to put together a short video that shows off your personalities and unique charm.
It may seem unimaginable that you could be selected, but we think it's totally worth a try. Applications are now open — time to pick your partner!
If you didn't make it onto Family Feud Canada, this is the perfect second chance at Canadian television fame.
