TORONTO, Aug. 13, 2015 /CNW/ - It was a heartbreaking ending for hopeless romantics Nic and Sabrina in tonight's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA. The Montréal-based couple were in "jeopardy" early in the leg, struggling at the crime scene Detour, before their race took a turn for the worse when Nic was last to complete the CPR Road Block. In the end, Nic and Sabrina were the last team to reach the Pit Stop at Bell Park in Sudbury where they were greeted by host Jon Montgomery and eliminated from the race.

"I'm not disappointed…you always think of me before you think of you, and I love you for that," said Sabrina about her relationship with Nic.

"The bond that we have is never going to be broken," added a heartfelt Nic.

Episode 306 Recap

The eight remaining teams travelled via ferry from the Magdalen Islands to Prince Edward Island, where they hopped on a flight to Sudbury. Once in Sudbury, teams travelled to the Vale Mine Company, where they suited up in protective mining gear and descended more than one kilometre below the earth's surface to break open pieces of ore to find a nickel pellet. Then, at the iconic Big Nickel, teams were presented with the option of a Fast Forward or Detour. Gino and Jesse were first to arrive and chose the Fast Forward, where at Science North Education Centre, they fed a Blanding's turtle and had to eat their own plate of worms and creepy critters.

At the Detour at Laurentian University, teams chose between synchronize or analyze. At synchronize, teams mastered a synchronized swimming routine. At analyze, teams examined a crime scene and had to locate 10 pieces of bone and teeth, and take precise measurements of where each piece of evidence was located.

Later in the heart-stopping Road Block, one team member had to perform CPR on a state-of-the-art computerized mannequin. Once the patient's vital signs were stable, teams were given their next clue - to canoe over one kilometre across Ramsey Lake to find Jon at the Pit Stop.

Continuing their winning streak from the previous leg, Gino and Jesse arrived first at the Pit Stop at Bell Park, winning the leg. Host Jon Montgomery, accompanied by Jeopardy host and legendary Sudbury-native Alex Trebek, greeted them with their leg prize - round-trip tickets from Air Canada to any of their California destinations, plus 5 million Petro-Points each from Petro-Canada.
