Aldergrove team joins ‘The Amazing Race Canada’

A mother and daughter team from Aldergrove is among the contestants in the new "Amazing Race Canada" series

Frankie and Amy Gassler are in CTV's Amazing Race Canada series.

A mother and daughter team from Aldergrove is among the contestants in the new “Amazing Race Canada” series currently airing on CTV.

Frankie Gassler and her daughter Amy are sworn to secrecy about the outcome but are thrilled to have partaken on the cross-country odyssey and daring exploits.

“Big Brother Canada” fans might also recognize some familiar faces among the final set of teams announced for season four of “The Amazing Race Canada.”

Jillian Maclaughlin, a 30-year-old school teacher, and Emmett Blois, a 28-year-old dairy farmer, were once unstoppable inside the “Big Brother Canada” house. Jillian was the winner of season one, and together they were two halves of a budding “showmance”. As they join the Race, however, they say they’re no longer together! Let’s see if this experience brings them closer together, or reinforces why they broke up.

And there’ll be a battle of the besties with yet another gal-pal duo. Kelly Xu and Kate Pan are 25 year-old fitness entrepreneurs from Toronto who say they’re going to run the race in style… matching styles, we presume.

Mother-daughter team Frankie Gassler and Amy Gassler from Aldergrove claim they can’t lose with the universe – and a little bit of magic – on their side.

All teams are competing for $250,000 among other prizes along the way as they travel across Canada and beyond while competing in exciting new challenges.

“The Amazing Race Canada” premiered on Tuesday, June 28 at 8 p.m. on CTV.
