TORONTO, Aug. 21, 2018 /CNW/ - It was a heartbreaking end for Leanne and Mar in tonight's episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA: HEROES EDITION. The teammates struggled during the paintball, challenge opting to take a two-hour penalty, which put them at the back of the pack. Because of the penalty, the mentors became the fifth team eliminated at the Pit Stop at Cavendish Beach in P.E.I. With five teams remaining in the competition, THE AMAZING RACE CANADA returns next Tuesday, Aug. 28 at 8 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. MT on CTV and CTV GO.
"We said from the beginning that if we went home first, or if we made it to the end, we would be proud – I'm so proud of us," said Leanne to host Jon Montgomery at the Pit Stop. "Mar was the first and only person that came to my mind when I realized this was a heroes edition, and I couldn't have run this race with anybody else."
"These experiences have moved us forward," added Mar. "We've grown up so much as individuals and as friends. Leanne is my heart and soul and there is no way I would've been able to even complete the first leg without having her by my side."
