When word got out that The Amazing Race was coming to Canada, Sonya Bell’s ears might have perked up. Her heart may have stirred. She probably didn’t know why at the time, but it all made sense when we enlisted her to chronicle each of the show’s episodes throughout its inaugural summer season. (Sonya was no reality TV rookie. She’d previously written about The Bachelor for Maclean’s, including a post-show heart-to-heart with Brad and Bianka.) Now, as she recapped each leg of The Amazing Race, Sonya understood what made each team tick, why they won and why they lost. Check out her work.
Sonya led a live chat with a team that captured many fans’ hearts. If you haven’t met them, get acquainted below with our guests.
