TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2017 /CNW/ - Following tonight's non-elimination leg in Ottawa, all six teams will race to Corner Brook, N.L., in next week's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, airing Tuesday, Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV and CTV GO. After a mix-up with one of their alliance teams, Andrea and Ebonie found themselves on the receiving end of a Double U-Turn and in last place at the Pit Stop at the Canadian Museum of History in Ottawa. To their relief, they were saved for a second time with a non-elimination leg.

In tonight's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, the remaining six teams raced to the nation's capital, feeling the pressure when told there was a Double U-Turn ahead. An alliance formed between Andrea and Ebonie, Sam and Paul, and Adam and Andrea, when the three teams agreed to keep each other off the U-Turn board and to U-Turn one of the other three teams instead.

Once teams touched down in Ottawa they made their way to City Hall where Ottawa's Mayor, Jim Watson, gave them their next clue. Teams then made their way to Hog's Back Falls where they found a fleet of Next-Generation 2018 Chevrolet Equinox True North Edition. Using Chevrolet's Surround Vision Technology, teams had to park five vehicles to create one of the six letters in the word Canada. Once all five cars had been parked correctly, teams received their next clue.

Racers then made their way to the RCMP stables, home of the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride, to complete a Roadblock challenge. One member of each team had to select a horse, carefully groom it, and then dress it to meet the high standards of the RCMP. Once they received approval, Racers mounted their horses to receive their next clue.

Teams then had to select one of two Detours – "Get the Picture" or "Tiptoe Through Tulips." All six teams made their way to Commissioners Park to "Tiptoe Through Tulips," which required them to build an exact replica of a cart and then recreate a display of tulips to receive their next clue and race to the Double U-Turn board. Karen and Bert completed the challenge first, followed by Sam and Paul. After arriving at ByWard Market, Karen and Bert decided not to U-Turn any team, while Sam and Paul stuck with their alliance and U-Turned Kenneth and Ryan. When Adam and Andrea made it to the U-Turn after leaving the Detour long after Andrea and Ebonie, they thought the girls had gone back on their word by not U-Turning another team. So instead, Adam and Andrea decided not to U-Turn any teams, which resulted in Korey and Ivana U-Turning Andrea and Ebonie, who got lost on their way to the U-Turn.

With both Kenneth and Ryan, and Andrea and Ebonie on the receiving end of the Double U-Turn, the teams had to make their way to the Canada Council Art Bank to complete the "Get the Picture" Detour. Both teams had to use the information in their art binders and the Art Bank's database to find the exact location of 20 pieces of art. Once located, teams had to take a photo of each piece and fill their binder. Kenneth and Ryan completed their second Detour quickly, leaving the Art Bank as Andrea and Ebonie arrived.

After the U-Turn, teams had to travel to the Canadian Museum of History for another 150 Challenge that put the Racers' knowledge of Canadian history to the test. Each Racer had to take a citizenship test and score at least 15 out of 20 to pass and move on. While Sam, Andrea, and Karen all aced the test on their first try, their teammates – Paul, Adam, and Bert – all had to retake it, leaving the top spot to whoever could score enough correct answers first. When Adam passed on his second attempt, he and Andrea raced for the Pit Stop and arrived in first place for the second time this season, winning a trip for two to five Canadian cities.

While Andrea and Ebonie caught up with Kenneth and Ryan at citizenship test, they struggled to make the grade and found themselves arriving at the mat in last place for the second time. But luck was on their side once again as Jon Montgomery informed them it was a non-elimination leg and they were safe for a second time.
