Body Break’s Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod Auditions for The Amazing Race


article 3

Dear Internet,

I’ve seen you send Pitbull to Alaska. I’ve also witness you failed efforts to send Justin Bieber to North Korea. So, please can we please get The Body Break’s dynamic duo of Hal Johnson and Joanne McLeod on The Amazing Race? Because this would make my day.

But just in case you haven’t had to fortune of growing up in Canada during the late eighties and early nineties, let me fill you in. Hal and Joanne were pretty much our Richard Simmons. But instead of working out in weird neon spanx, these two tried to get Canada to “keep fit and have fun!” with their tips on diet and exercise. Their segments were quick and painless as they filled us in during our morning meals. Needless to say, their own tips have down them well as they seem to have hardly aged.

The most important thing you must understand is that these two have been passing along their sage wisdom in such a stoic manner. To have them on The Amazing Race would be amazing because it could go two ways:

1) They stay positive throughout the whole experience or

2) They crack under pressure and Canada will finally see the two endure a more difficult hardship than not getting your daily dose of calcium everyday

Do you see where I’m going here? Good because if we’ve learned anything from the showers of hate coming down on Anne Hathaway post-Oscar win is that perfect doesn’t win everyone over. No, I don’t have a grudge against them. I actually really like Hal and Joanne; they’ve been this weird little staple of my childhood. But I would like to see a more human side to this seemingly perfect couple and for that I would watch every single episode of The Amazing Race Canada.


Just in case you need more incentive to get them on the show, here’s a couple of episodes of The Body Break:

So, let’s get them on the show internet and voice your support!
