Reality show crew bowls over pedestrians while filming in busy Toronto neighbourhood

People strolling around Kensington Market today had to brace themselves as The Amazing Race Canada descended to film an episode on the neighbourhood's streets. 

They didn’t learn of the news through social media or a pleasant notice posted up in the area, but as a camera crew channeled their inner offensive lineman, charging their way down the road in hot pursuit of a competing team.

The Amazing Race pits teams against each other, following them as they complete legs across the country in hopes of winning prizes.

One Twitter user questioned what exactly they might be searching for in the market. 

One of the duos ended up at Fika Cafe on Kensington Ave.

The best burn probably came from the original poster herself, who remarked that, "[the] challenge that makes most sense is throwing these teams on queen east and getting them to transit to queen west but whatever."

Another user added that she'd encountered a camera crew chasing two people in Yorkville last week, so it seems this race is covering a lot of ground.

If you're out in the city this weekend, be ready to dodge. The Amazing Race Canada might be coming at you fast.
