Holly And Brett, 'Amazing Race Canada' Team: Married Doctors Take On Challenge


We all know that doctors face challenges every single day that the average person might find insurmountably stressful, but married paediatricians Holly Agostino and Brett Burstein are taking on a new challenge: competing on "The Amazing Race Canada."

Holly and Brett are well-versed on the Race, too. They've studied almost as hard for their stint on the show as they have for med school.

Despite the thousands of people who applied to be on the show, only nine teams of two were selected to participate in the biggest race in Canadian game show history.

Their motto: "Total focus, eyes on the prize!"

How they plan to win the Race: "Be cunning and resourceful -- we are pros at functioning under pressure no matter what the conditions."

"Amazing Race Canada" premieres on Monday, July 15 on CTV at 9 p.m. ET.
