Body Break’s Hal Johnson And Joanne McLeod To Compete On Amazing Race Canada

Body Break's Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod to compete on Amazing Race Canada

Canadian fitness icons Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod have signed on to appear in the inaugural version of The Amazing Race Canada. Of course, most Canadians will remember Johnson and McLeod as the relentlessly upbeat married duo from those “Body Break” public service vignettes that appeared on Canadian television sets during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

However, don’t expect fitness lessons in the midst of competition. As the duo told CTV, viewers will see a side of the couple they probably haven’t before: tired, and capable of making mistakes.

“It’s funny with social media because there’s been so many people tweeting and putting on Facebook and that sort of thing: ‘Are Hal and Jo going to fight? I don’t want to see them fight!'” said Johnson. “You know, I think the biggest thing is we respect one another first.”

He went on: “So what you see in ‘Body Break’ is certainly a part of us. It’s not all of us. You’re going to see us tired. You’re going to see us in different situations that we’ve never done before. But I don’t perceive that we would fly off the handle — because I just never do that.”

The couple from Oakville, Ontario will join previously announced teams including married doctors from Montreal Holly and Brett, dating couple Kristen and Darren, brothers Jody and Cory, twins Treena and Tennille, and two sets of best friends – Jet and Dave, and Jamie and Pierre. All of the teams will compete for the historic grand prize as they race across the country from coast to coast vying for the loot, which includes $250,000 in cash, the opportunity to fly free for a year for two anywhere Air Canada flies worldwide (175 destinations) in Executive First Class (based on 10 trips for two), and two 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingrays.

The Amazing Race Canada debuts Monday July 15th on CTV.
