Dave Leduc and Irina Terehova are a Married team on the The Amazing Race Canada 7.

Right out of the gate they proved themselves as a threat, winning the most legs and staying in the top 3 for most of the race. However, they were heavily disliked by the other teams(as well as the audience to a certain point) as they would generally take every possible means necessary to get ahead, including taking penalties when they felt that they could not complete a task, stealing other teams' taxis, Irina refusing to help or even do some tasks, and at one point even cheating off of Trish & Amy's whiteboard to solve a letter unscrambling task. They even called other teams "peasants". Their ruthlessness and overconfidence made them the "villains" of their season, a team archetype that had generally not been seen before on The Amazing Race Canada. This all came to a head in the sixth leg, where all the other teams admitted to rallying against them, & Irina became defensive while mocking Aarthy. After Aarthy & Thinesh's elimination in the ninth leg, they looked ready to lock themselves a spot in the finale, but they struggled at the Apples side of the Detour in the penultimate leg, where they couldn't identify which apple was which. This proved costly as they couldn't catch up to 3rd place team Lauren & Joanne and they were the final team eliminated, finishing in 4th.

This love story started when Dave contacted Irina, a Montréal journalist, to write an article about his professional career as a fighter in Myanmar. She took the assignment, but their connection didn't end there. They kept in touch and she agreed to meet him in Thailand for a three-week vacation, and then she never came back. Dave is a martial arts superstar and the current World Champion in Lethwei, also known as Burmese Bareknuckle boxing, the most brutal sport in the world. Irina moved to Canada with her family when she was 12 from Russia, and started modelling at the age of 15. Currently, Irina has her own blog, but her main focus is their marriage and supporting Dave in his career. This couple is known for epic arguments but have deep love for each other and are inseparable. They never had one night apart since they met. They picked up their lives to live in a completely foreign place, showing they are strong and adaptable. They know there is nothing they can't do as long as they are together.
