Anthony Johnson and James Makokis are a Married team and the Official Winners of The Amazing Race Canada 7.

While they were found in the middle of the pack in their early legs, they found their stride at the midpoint of the race and managed to stay near the top of the pack, winning two legs along the way. They kept away from the drama and negativity caused by other teams, instead, they maintained positive and supportive attitudes. They were rarely seen frustrated and became fan favourites, particularly after finishing the clam digging challenge with Aarthy & Thinesh. During the final leg in Muskoka, they landed the lead early on and never let go of it. While the other teams were right behind them through most of the tasks, they held on to first place and won the race.

Anthony and James met on Facebook after Anthony spotted James as the centerfold in OUT Magazine. When the two met in person, sparks flew and they married in 2017. Anthony and James are both driven to be strong voices for their community and good role models. Anthony attended Harvard and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics. His marriage to James, and subsequent move to Alberta, has given him a new lease on life. James has constantly dealt with the adversities in the medical industry related to being Indigenous. He knew he wanted to be a doctor since the age of four and went through a grueling 13 years of training. He is now trying to break the racism that Indigenous medical professionals face every day. Having grown up in similar communities, the commonalities in their lives really brought this pair together. They both want to show Indigenous youth that they can be successful, while also staying committed to their cultural and spiritual ways.
