Jillian and Emmett are reality TV veterans who live for competition. Having met three years ago in the "Big Brother Canada" house – Jillian is the Season 1 winner – this lively duo dated, but recently parted ways. With romance behind them, their relationship is stronger and allows them to be more direct with each other about their emotions. This newfound clarity will help them compete on Season 4 of "The Amazing Race Canada."

Jillian knows how to play off Emmett's strengths, while he knows how competitive and brave she is. Most importantly, they both know they'll never give up. "We both wanted to apply with other partners, but we knew deep down we could only compete with each other," says Emmett.

The pair is ready to hit the ground running and admit there is a slight chance they could reignite their romance. On the race, their relationship will be tested, but either way, they believe their bond is strong enough to pull off the win. Jillian's prize money would go toward building a home, while Emmett would invest in his businesses.

    • Emmett: Eagle
