TORONTO, July 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Following tonight's first non-elimination leg of the season, all eight teams will race to the Yukon in next week's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, airing Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. As revealed at the end of tonight's broadcast, Sukhi and Jinder were rescued from elimination at the Pit Stop under the dazzling lights in the Macau Traffic circle, after a luckless turn at the Fan Tan gambling challenge put them at the back of the pack.

Episode 4 Recap
From the Pit Start in Hong Kong, eight teams made their way to the gambling capital of the world, Macau, China, and raced to the ancient A-Ma Temple before heading to the world's highest tower bungee jump (233 metres/764 feet) at Macau Tower. Once back on the ground, teams chose one of two Detours, collecting stamps in the maze of Macau's streets or learning a traditional Macanese dance. From the Detours teams had to learn how to correctly deal one round of the complicated Fan Tan gambling game, before heading to the Pit Stop under the blinking lights of Macau's casinos.
Natalie and Meaghan showed no signs of slowing down as they collected their fourth win a row, earning them two round trip tickets in Premium Economy from Air Canada to Tokyo, plus $3,000 on their Scotiabank Gold American Express Card.

THE AMAZING RACE CANADA returns home as teams fly to the mighty Yukon (Tuesday, Aug. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO). Natalie and Meaghan's Express Pass power play puts them at the centre of controversy. A dog-eat-dog competition heats up as the Detour leaves an opening for underdogs to take the reins. And a relentless Roadblock sets its sights on one team packing.
