TORONTO, Aug. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - At the conclusion of tonight's episode of
CTV's THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, it was revealed that Kristen and Darren, the dating couple from
Fairmont Hot Springs, BC, were the third team eliminated from the
competition series. After falling behind in the first challenge, the
outdoor enthusiasts were forced to take the last flight to Carcross,
Yukon, which left them struggling to catch-up with the other teams. In
the end, it was Kristen and Darren's decision to perform the "supply
run" detour instead of using their express pass which resulted in their
last place finish to the mat.

When asked why they didn't use the express pass, Kristen said, "Handing
in an express pass without really trying a challenge is kind of like
copping out. Why not give it a shot, why not try, why not experience
what that challenge has to offer instead of taking off? It doesn't seem
like a good choice because; I don't understand why you wouldn't just
want to experience everything you can."

drilled by the RCMP. And the first double U-Turn of the Race sends the
teams into a panic. The remaining competitors vying for the historic
