B.C. faces off against Alberta in Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition season finale

    1 of 3 2 of 3

      It was close but, alas, British Columbia has yet to win a season of the Amazing Race Canada.

      This latest season was entitled Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition as competitors consisted of everyday heroes, ranging from community leaders and mentors to athletes and parents.  

      Two B.C. teams competed this season but both were eliminated.

      Metro Vancouver volunteers and siblings Martina and Phil Seo were eliminated on the September 4 episode.

      Only one B.C. team was left to continue on to compete in the season finale on September 11: RCMP officers and siblings 25-year-old Taylor Callens from Williams Lake, B.C., and 27-year-old Courtney Callens from Langley, B.C. (both originally from Cloverdale, B.C.).

      Also in the running were 28-year-old Dylan Elias and 34-year-old Kwame Osei from Fort McMurray, Alberta.

      The last leg of the race was held in Calgary, Alberta, and Banff National Park.

      After traveling to three countries, seven provinces, and 16 cities, first responders and engaged couple 28-year-old nurse Courtney Berglind from Airdrie, Alberta, and 29-year-old firefighter Adam Kovacs from Calgary, Alberta, won the competition.

      The finale episode of Season 6 airs again on September 15 on CTV.
