Why do I enjoy this show so much? Well, I always enjoy learning about other cultures and the history of the people, especially within my own country. But, what I enjoyed most was how diverse the competitors were. They were from all different backgrounds, ages, races, sexual orientation. It was wonderful! Some were parent/child teams, siblings, friends, couples, and even teammates.
Of course, I was cheering for fan favorites Natalie Spooner and Meaghan Mikkelson, two members of Canada's Women's Gold Medal Olympic Hockey Team. Never giving up with injuries and more, they were inspirational and great role models.
But I was not the least bit upset when Mickey Henry and Pete Schmalz crossed the finish line first. Best friends, they ran a wonderful race without getting involved in all the drama we have become accustomed to on reality television. I am so happy for them.
I am also very happy for Alain Chanoine and Audrey Tousignant-Maurice, a dating couple from Montreal, who spent most of their on-air time arguing or kissing. And now, they're engaged! Yes, Alain proposed right on the show, bringing tears to my eyes.
It was a great season, and I'm so excited that casting is now open for Season 3. Can't wait!
