Many Amazing Race Canada fans were happy about the elimination; the Twins were edited as the sneaky team, and they did play a strong tactical game. But in the end, it's a game and the Twins were strong competitors. It was obvious they were there to win it all and it showed. At the very least, they brought some personality and drama to the game, unlike some of the other teams who are either way too quiet or one-dimensional. We will miss the Twins.
G & W - You played a strong, tactical game, but do you have any regrets?
Michel - I think we played a real strategic race and no, I have no regrets. The only regret I have, and you didn't see that on the show, is there were four teams working together, helping each other - Alain and Audrey, Rex and Bob, Nicole and Cormac, and Rob and Ryan. They were helping each other and we had a big target and the only regret I had in Hong Kong was that we should have U-Turned Alain and Audrey at that moment (Side note: although it wasn't aired, there was a U-Turn in the Hong Kong Leg. It was not put in the episode because it did not affect the standings in the race).
Pierre - They built up an alliance against us, not only to take the Express Pass away but to take us out of the game. That was their plan, that was built up by Audrey, that's what one team told us. So seeing the alliance falling down show after show was very funny. And so when we got the opportunity, and they saw they were basically alone until Ryan and Rob showed up prior to the train station, they talked nicely their way in. It was a no go for us but we had to...there is only one way to deal with hypocrites and liars is to become like them. And I'm saying that very respectfully. I mean it would have been stupid to tell them our real goal because our guns were charged that morning.
Michel - We were there for almost eight hours and I tried to focus on my thing. When you put a thousand mentos on a board and if you put one not on the right spot, it's hard to find this one because the more you look at the picture, the less you see. And I made a lot of mistakes about the shades of the mentos and that was one of my big mistakes there.
Pierre - We were there so much in advance against the all the other teams and when you see them coming, you think you have a comfortable gap to play with. And that point I didn't know Michel was overthinking that task and did not understand. He was overthinking all the shades and colours and stuff. So I mean, you're not very satisfied with what's going on. And you know there's only one team that's going to win that race and it was Amazing Race for us, not Amazing Help. And we were not looking to help any team and we were not looking to have any team help us. And we worked and had a very fair and friendly time with mosts of the other teams. Only two we had problems with and that's life you know, you go out at night and you meet different people, some you're going to like, some you're not going to like and some you're going to be very indifferent to them. That's what happened.
G & W - Will either you ever eat another Mentos every again.
Michel - (Laughs) I am in therapy right now where I eat one Mentos every five minutes.
G & W - Did you find it odd that some teams took the game a little too personally?
Pierre - I would say yes because a U-turn is part of the game and we'll keep it quiet about what really happened but we're not that vicious. In Hong Kong, the show wanted to portray us as sneaky and it's very funny, we have no problem with that. And we were doing that to keep an edge on the game. And in Hong Kong when Mickey and Pete were right in front of us, five meters from the clue box, we had someone we have to get a waiver before we do anything. (Note: In some cases, teams may need to get waivers signed by those who help them, such as cab-drivers or helpful civilians. And they have to get those signed before they can move on). And if we are telling them where the clue box is, we're ending up in sixth. So I think it would be stupid for ourselves to tell them, you know. Some teams took it very personal, we don't. When you get to know you're on a hunt and you decide to be the one hunting, and it didn't work the way we planned.
Michel - Just before the race began, we talked about it not being a big surprised we are U-Turned because we are a strong team and you are usually U-Turned because you are a strong team. It's an honour to be U-Turned. We U-Turned Alain and Audrey because they are a strong team too. And we don't like them, so it's nothing personal. And we don't like them not because of their personality but because they built an alliance against us. And it was not just to get the Express Pass, they wanted to kick us out of there. And there is nothing political, there is nothing about Quebec, it's just you want to have a piece of us? Well, we'll have a piece of you and we missed our shot and that's it.
G & W - If you would have gotten to the U-Turn before the Olympians...
Pierre and Michel (shouting) Never! Never! Never!
G & W - Why not? Why not U-Turn Natalie and Meaghan? They are a strong team.
Pierre - We love this team. We've been talking to them a little bit and we felt the camaraderie of ex-members of Canada's National Team. We felt that right away. There was no way I would U-Turn a strong team unless we did not like them and because they were planning behind our back. Obviously, we wanted to race for the finale with the best and at that in the game, obviously (the Olympians) are the strongest link and Alain and Audrey were the second one, you know. We had the discussion, Michel and I at one point, if we had only one team to U-Turn and that was Natalie and Meaghan, we wouldn't because we would honour our agreement. And that's how trustable we are when we deal with a team that is trustable.
Pierre - We are not expecting it. And that's their personal like and I wish them all the best.
G & W - Did you feel that the editing was unfair to make you look like the bad guys or did you even care?
Pierre or Michel (unable to determine for this answer) - We don't care. Everybody, I think, would love to be edited as the funny team and we did a lot of funny things that haven't been shown. But when we signed up, we knew what we were getting into. You know, 11 charming teams are not good for a TV show; 11 funny teams are not good for a TV show, you need a different character. And if they want to portray us as sneaky, what can I saw. It was a Amazing Race Canada and sometimes when I look at the whole thing, I think it's more of Amazing Help Canada. It was a race for us, that's it. There was a half a million bucks on the table and we were going just for that. It was first position for us.
