  1. Time for me to chime in to say there’s no team from Saskatchewan AGAIN. However, at least its not perennially forgotten like New Brunswick.

    1. Not gonna lie … I wondered how long it would take you to make that comment. Your support of New Brunswick is appreciated.

  2. Not sure how I feel about these new “Face Off” challenges. It would pretty much seal the fate of whoever loses the last round taking out the suspense of the last few minutes. And unless they all have some form of equalizer or are insanely difficult then it just makes it easier on frontrunners and means less chance for a come-from-behind surprise with the back of the pack.

    Still the first two seasons were good and the lack of a dating twist is already an improvement over the most recent US season. And hopefully they’ll still do After the Race which is interesting and something that makes ours unique.
