Bajan mum on Amazing Race Canada
Mother and son to compete on reality show
A Barbadian mother and her son are racing in Canada with a mission.
Nicole Foster, who currently lives in Winnipeg, has entered Season 2 of the TV reality competition Amazing Race Canada, and wants the winnings to go towards funding her son’s education.
But Cormac wants to win to give his mother things she was forced to do without from the time she gave birth to him at the age of 19.
Nicole had put her studies on hold when she got pregnant to focus on raising her son, according to information on the duo on the Amazing Race Canada website. She later returned to school and graduated.
The 39-year-old is now a residence manager at a nursing home while Cormac is studying biosystems engineering at the University of Manitoba.
But to earn the winning prize the two will have to cross the finish line ahead of ten teams.
They are national Ballet of Canada star Rex Harrington and his fiancé Bob Hope; friends Mickey and Pete; best friends Shahla and Nabeela; dating couple Alain and Audrey; Canada’s National Women’s Hockey Team members Natalie Spooner and Meaghan Mikkelson; married couple Jen and Shawn; globetrotting entrepreneurs Sukhi and her brother Jinder; World Cup circuit skier Pierre Forget and his identical twin Michel; sketch comic Ryan Steele
and former Mr Gay Canada Rob Goddard; and married couple Laura Takahashi and Jackie Skinner.
The motto that the Foster family is taking into the competition is “No matter what, we finish what we start! We will run to the mat every time!”
The winning prize includes $250,000 in cash and the opportunity to fly for free anywhere in the world Air Canada flies for a full year.
Season 2 of the Amazing Race Canada premieres on July 8 on CTV.
