Retrieved from CTV.com
Boyfriends Sam and Paul are outgoing, fun-loving guys who met at a concert in late 2015. At the time, Paul had not yet come out but falling for Sam led him to open up to his family and friends. Today they’re madly in love, happier than ever, and ready to take on THE AMAZING RACE CANADA together.
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.
