A father/son duo from Winnipeg is among the last set of teams announced for the upcoming CTV series The Amazing Race Canada.
Tim Hague Sr., 48, is teamed with son Tim Hague Jr., 23, in the Canadian version of the popular reality/competition series, which premières July 15.
According to biographical information released by CTV on Thursday, Tim Hague Sr., a registered nurse who was born in Texas, is competing despite having been diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease three years ago. Since his diagnosis, he has completed a triathlon and several half-marathons.
"Just because you’ve been given a diagnosis does not mean the end of your life," is the team motto listed in the CTV-issued bio.
Tim Jr. was born in Winnipeg and lists his occupation as sales. The pair, described as "energetic and highly confident," has never travelled east of Manitoba. In the section of their bio that asks them to describe their strategy for winning The Amazing Race Canada, the Hagues’ game plan is "Have an amazingly fun time and see how far we can get. Build each other up at all times!"
The Amazing Race Canada follows the blueprint of the Emmy-winning CBS series, sending two-person teams of contestants on a fast-paced geographical adventure filled with challenges and roadblocks, with the eventual winner claiming a large cash prize.
The Canadian version, however, does not send its players to far-flung global destinations; the entire competition takes place within Canada’s borders. The winning team will receive $250,000 cash, the opportunity to fly free for a year to all Air Canada destinations, and a pair of 2014 Corvette Stingrays.
