Team Bio

Vivacious couple Karen and Bert began dating in 2004 and married since 2013; and together they make a modern family of four with a son and daughter who are their life. Bert is the owner of a moving and delivery company in Edmonton and also a successful musician. As rapper who goes by the name Dirt Gritie, Bert is always quick to come up with a rhyme for any occasion. Karen works as a social worker, which has trained her to get things done under pressure and to deliver when sticky situations arise. In addition to their successful careers, Karen and Bert pride themselves on the community work they do, volunteering for countless non-profits. They both love working with families and youth programs.

The energetic duo are huge fans of THE AMAZING RACE CANADA and always believed they could obliterate any competition if put on the start line. Karen says they have the perfect combination of physical and mental abilities, though she may have to reign in Bert from time to time as he’s a big kid with limitless energy. While Bert and Karen are empathetic people, they are out to crush any team that gets in their way without compromising their integrity.
