The second leg of the Race ended with Host Jon Montgomery revealing that all nine teams will remain in the competition. While Zainab and Monica struggled on this leg of the journey, touching the mat as the ninth and final team, they were spared from elimination and will race in next week’s episode of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA: HEROES EDITION airing Tuesday, July 17 at 8 p.m. ET / 9 p.m. MT on CTV and CTV GO.

“Monica and I, we were both raised by strong single women,” said Zainab to host Jon Montgomery at the Pit Stop. “I’m not ready to tell my mom I’m coming home – I made a promise that I’d win this race.”

“We can’t throw away this second chance,” echoed Monica. “It’s game time!”

In tonight’s episode the remaining nine teams travelled from the Pit Start in Squamish, B.C., to historic Dawson City, Yukon, the heart of the Canadian gold rush. There, Racers were challenged to construct a campsite at historic Dredge No. 4 similar to those of the early gold prospectors. Advocates Todd and Anna from Alberta were the first to complete their campsite, while Joseph and Akash forgot to pack their tent – forcing them to backtrack, which moved them into last place.

Teams then made their way to the Bank of British North America in historic downtown Dawson City where they stepped back in time to take part in a modern-day gold rush. Using a GPS device that had been loaded with the coordinates of nine different landmarks, teams had to navigate the town to find five gold coins spread across nine historical locations. The scavenger hunt intensified as the clue revealed that there were three Express Passes hidden throughout the town. Elite athletes Nancy and Mellisa were the first to find an Express Pass, followed by Todd and Anna who were also the first to collect all five coins and receive the next clue. Youth mentors Leanne and Mar found the third Express Pass.

Racers then faced a Detour in which teams got a taste of two prosperous pass times as they were made to choose between playing a game of chance or mastering the cancan dance.  In “Dance”, teams had to memorize and then demonstrate their skills in the complicated steps of the cancan dance, and in “Chance”, teams had to learn how to deal a perfect round of blackjack. Learning an authentic cancan dance proved too difficult for many teams who had to switch tactics and try their hand at blackjack.

Maintaining their lead, Todd and Anna were the first to complete the Detour and sped to Midnight Dome, the location of the Pit Stop for the second leg of the Race. There, host Jon Montgomery reported that they arrived first, winning a trip for two to the South of France. Zainab and Monica, who struggled with the mental math and difficult rules of card dealing, were the last team to arrive at the Pit Stop. Expecting elimination, the Navy sailors from Ontario were elated when Jon revealed that this was a non-elimination leg and the duo were safe for now but will need to complete a Speed Bump on the next leg.

Then, pressure soars to new heights as racers struggle to learn the ropes, and while some teams are thrilled to have their pie and eat it too, others find it hard to stomach.

The nine remaining teams competing for the ultimate grand prize on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA are:
