TORONTO, Aug. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - At the conclusion of tonight's episode of CTV's THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, it was revealed that Hal and Joanne, married fitness icons from Oakville, ON, were the fourth team eliminated from the competition series. The "BodyBreak" couple had a rough go in Regina, after taking a two-hour penalty at the lentil challenge, before being U-Turned by the Tims.
