TORONTO, Sept. 10, 2015 /CNW/ - Back on Canadian soil, the race came to an end for Toronto-based dancers Dujean and Leilani in tonight's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. Tension reached a boiling point between the exes when they struggled to complete the farming challenges at the Detour and chose to take a penalty. If that wasn't enough, they were later U-turned by wrestlers Nick and Matt. Falling far behind the pack, Dujean and Leilani arrived last to the Pit Stop at Nk'mip Desert Cultural Centre, where they were eliminated from the race.
"Even though we bump heads and we have our differences, we made it this far and that's huge," said Dujean.
"It's a lot to race with someone who you have a history with," added Leilani. "I'm so proud we made it as far as we did."

Episode 310 Recap
From the Pit Start in Delhi, teams travelled more than 11,000 km to Penticton, British Columbia, in the rich and rolling farmlands of the Okanagan Valley. Once there, teams made their way to D'Angelo Estates Winery to find their next clue. The first challenge tested teams' patience and brain power, as they had to free a Chevy Silverado from a truck maze. At the Road Block, one team member had to complete a two-part wakeboarding obstacle course in the pristine waters of Lake Okanagan.
After placing last in the previous leg, Brent and Sean were forced to complete a speed bump before the Detour, where they bottled, corked, and labelled a dozen bottles of Covert Farms' renowned wine.
At the Detour at Covert Farms, teams chose between brains or brawn. In brains, teams completed a series of farm-based challenges, requiring them to locate wine bottles based on coordinates, launch potatoes at targets, and use a forklift to stack ten wooden pellets. In brawn, teams completed strength-based farming chores, transporting heavy sacks of onion, flipping a tire more than 300 feet, and crossing monkey bars over a pile of fresh manure. All teams then had to traverse a daunting mud run, where at the end, they found the double U-turn. Gino and Jesse chose to U-turn Nick and Matt, while Nick and Matt then U-turned Dujean and Leilani.
Then, at the Osoyoos Desert Model Railroad, teams had to scan through more than 18,000 hand-painted mini figurines for a mini Jon Montgomery.
Gino and Jesse were the first to arrive at Nk'mip Desert Cultural Centre, winning the leg. Host Jon Montgomery greeted them with their leg prize – round-trip tickets from Air Canada to Tokyo, plus free gas for two years from Petro-Canada.
The teams searched high and low for a"Mini Jon" figurine amongst a 4,000 square foot model railroad and now fans have a chance to win one of their own. Fans can click onto THE AMAZING RACE CANADA news page on CTV.ca to enter the contest.
