Sam & Paul from The Amazing Race Canada 5

'We’re millennials. Of course, we met on a dating app!'

If anyone is able to catch this seasons Amazing Race Canada, they no doubt have noticed racers, Sam Lambert and Paul Mitskopoulos. The hot pair are credit on the show as 'dating couple' and have been together since their first date at a concert in 2015. Paul was not out at that time, but falling for Sam motivated him to open up to his family and friends. I did not intend to watch this season, despite my lust for host Jon Montgomery, but I DVR'd the episodes, finally watching the first few episodes this past week.


I picked a good time view as the last episode found the racers in Beijing, having to choose which 'in sync' roadblock they would choose. Thankfully the two hotties chose diving over dancing and ended up at the pool, in tight red speedos. Their first couple of dives did not go over well, but by dive three, they scored 25, one of the highest scores of the night! Episodes of The Amazing Race Canada are on Youtube, but the official episodes do cost $1.99 per episode.


'Both Sam and Paul are highly competitive, athletic, ambitious, and care deeply for one another. Although similar in their values, Sam and Paul are different in a number of ways. Sam, who is pursuing a career as a doctor, is very intelligent and sensitive, while Paul tends to be more reactive. Sam has an almost photographic memory and an uncanny ability to read people, whereas Paul, the more reserved of the two, admits to having a terrible memory but believes his physical stamina more than makes up for it.'

'Although their differences do cause tension, it could also be the key to their success. Where one is weak, the other is strong. Paul, the more physical of the two – he loves to play volleyball, soccer, and tennis – is very determined. Sam, whose strength will be mental challenges, logic, and memory, can be very impatient. He hates repetition and is quick to get frustrated when something isn’t working. Together, they are sure to bring humor and heart to the competition.'

Jon:  'Sam and Paul, you're team #1'
