Newfoundland’s Megan Burden and Courtney Roberts cruised to victory in Tuesday’s episode of CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada, winning a trip for two to Auckland, New Zealand.

The cousins are from St. Lunaire-Griquet and Corner Brook.

The second leg of the competition started in Vancouver, B.C. and took the teams to Fort McMurray, Alta., where they had to suit up as firefighters to complete one of the tasks.

To wrap up the leg they had to calculate the correct amount of fuel needed for a helicopter mission before boarding the chopper and taking it to the pit stop.

YouTube Creators Dan and Riya from Toronto were the last pair to reach the mat and were eliminated, leaving eight teams remaining in the competition.

In next week’s episode, the teams go to Castlegar, B.C. for the next series of challenges.
