Sukhi Atwal and Jinder Atwal are a team of Siblings on The Amazing Race Canada 2.

They started out the season as one of the weaker teams, having a tendency to panic and beg other teams for information or help. This led them to finishing in the bottom half of the standings for the first four legs, including a last place non-elimination finish in Leg 4. Afterwards, they started to work more on their own, building momentum over the next few legs, culminating with two straight 1st place finishes in the 9th and 10th legs. However, they unraveled in the 11th leg when they constantly failed spot checks throughout the leg, and were the last team to complete the Signal Flag Detour, dooming them to 4th Place.

Sukhi and Jinder are the ultimate brother-sister team with ambitions to conquer the world. They have worked together on entrepreneurial pursuits at home as well as abroad and saw one of their ventures expand into South Asia. They are fierce, competitive, and very determined. Sukhi is the demanding older sister who dreams big and never says no to a new challenge, while Jinder is the brains behind the operation and follows through on his sister's tremendous visions. From a young age, they have been inseparable because, for Sukhi, bringing her brother along meant their parents would let her do anything. This successful duo strives to maintain a typical sibling relationship with sarcasm, rivalry, and competition. Jinder claims he will be completing challenges while his sister sits on the sidelines, which she of course vehemently denies. Both agree that they need to relax in order to compete well on the race. "We need to comprehend the clues instead of running around like crazy people," said Sukhi. "Moving way too fast…or doing something without slowing things down and actually thinking about it first will be our biggest challenge," adds Jinder. They are inspired by their father's immigration from India to Terrace, B.C. with no money and no English vocabulary. He simply wanted to build a life of opportunity for his future children. Winning 'The Amazing Race Canada' would further Sukhi and Jinder's beliefs that they can achieve anything.


Motto: "We will do whatever it takes! We are here to win! We got this!"
Team they most associate with from Season 1: "Tim and Tim, because they won the race."
