Ashley Callingbull and her stepfather Joel Ground will be one of 10 teams competing for the Amazing Race Canada title when the show kicks off on the 28th. Callingbull is an Enoch Cree woman who was the first Canadian and first Aboriginal woman to win the Miss Universe International title last year. Not only do they want to bring home the $250,000 prize but they also “hope their presence will be a positive influence on First Nations people.”
Rita and Yvette Yakibonge are twins, originally from Montreal, now living in YEG. They might be in a bit of trouble when there’s a height or water challenge, Rita’s big phobia is heights and Yvette’s is large bodies of water!
