TORONTO, July 16, 2013 /CNW/ - At the conclusion of tonight's big buzz series premiere of CTV's THE AMAZING RACE CANADA, it was revealed that Treena and Tennille, fiercely competitive and often differing twin sisters from Hamilton, ON, were the first team eliminated from the competition series. Although the twins were not the last team to arrive at the mat following a dramatic foot race against the cowboys, their victory was cut short in a shocking twist when host Jon Montgomery revealed they had failed to grab BOTH clues from the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, resulting in a 30-minute penalty.
