“Melba is not just a person, she’s an experience.” Zenon Campbell
Ever since they were selected for the Woods Canada Dream Job, Melba and Adam have suddenly become Canada’s most favourite Canadians! Okay maybe not everyone’s favourite but some people like us.
Once we finished the #WoodsExplorer trip across Canada on the TransCanadaTrail, I have been getting back to back messages and posts about how we should apply for The Amazing Race Canada . At first it was a little hard to picture us getting right back on the horse and being behind a camera after filming so much for the past 5 months. So we took a break and let the idea marinate, and as the messages and push from friends and family and even strangers began to accumulate I got into MELBA MODE and we started planning.
We had put so much thought and time in our application video for the Woods Dream Job, I really didn’t know how to compete with that. I knew it was a different sort of audition. It wasn’t the same as Woods but it was imperative that we showcase our personalities.
Adam and I have such a range of emotions and playfulness and craziness to us. We really are like a bag of random jelly beans. Sometimes you get a really yummy one that’s your favourite, sometimes you get a gross one that you spit out immediately and sometimes you get one that leaves you undecided.
I wanted to keep the video simple, straight forward and genuine. There’s no fireworks or special effects. Just #MelbaAdam sitting on a couch being…. well Melba and Adam.
All we can hope for is Canadians to love us enough to get us in the first round so… tag us #AmazingRaceMelbaAdam and post it on Amazing Race CDA. Or tweet about us @amazingRaceCDA .

And now we wait.
