Kristen And Darren, 'Amazing Race Canada' Team: Outdoor Guides In Top Physical Shape


You knew it was going to happen: "Amazing Race Canada" has to represent B.C., and what more stereotypical way to do that than to cast two uber-hippies?

Kristen Idiens and Darren Trapp, both of Fairmont Hot Springs, B.C., are avid nature enthusiasts and are both (conveniently) outdoor nature guides; Kristen is an overall guide, whereas Darren specializes in whitewater river rafting. The dating couple prides themselves on their physical fitness -- which might well give them a leg up on the competition.

Their motto: "We believe strongly in equity for all living creatures and creating our own realities through positive thinking and sharing love wherever we go."

How they plan to win the Race: "Using our fitness level, logic, resourcefulness and maintaining a positive attitude towards each challenge."

Thousands of Canadians applied for "The Amazing Race Canada," but only nine teams were chosen to compete in the biggest race in Canadian game show history.
