Jon Montgomery is not lacking personality … or talent, or good looks, or charm for that matter.  He’s got everything one could ask for in an Olympic gold medallist. And he’s got everything a television camera wishes for. That’s why CTV has locked in the smooth-talking skeleton athlete to embrace the nation again, this time as the host of this season’s The Amazing Race Canada.

“If Canadians have half as much fun watching the show as we did making it, it’ll be a huge success,” said Montgomery.

It promises to be no (beer) walk in the park, but there is no doubt Mr. Montgomery will be gittin’ er done.

The show will air every Monday night at 9pm EST on CTV and will also air on RDS, TSN, and TSN2, as well as on demand across CTV’s digital platform.
