Brother and sister duo vow to continue TV efforts

Terrace brother and sister team Sukhi and Jinder Atwal were eighth team eliminated after the 11th leg of the Amazing Race Canada

Even though Terrace brother and sister team Sukhi and Jinder Atwal were eliminated after the 11th leg of the Amazing Race Canada, we haven’t seen the last of them.

The pair say they are having a blast and spent last week in a whirlwind of interviews, 25 in one day, and preparing themselves for their next  TV show.

They were officially eliminated in the show which aired on Sept. 23.

“It was all a lot of fun. We’re happy with it,” said Sukhi last week by phone from Ottawa.

“It’s obviously reality TV but we’ve had a blast. You don’t see us helping other teams, they didn’t show that. It was fun. People are talking about it whether they love us or hate us or think we’re hilarious.”

“We’re grounded in who we are,” said Jinder.

They reveal that they are in talks with other producers so the public will see more of them in a proposed show with both of them, but for now, they can’t talk about any of the details, even what type of show it may be, except to say it would be a “completely different show.”

“It’ll be the same type of energy and the same  Sukhi and Jinder you saw in the race,” said Jinder.

And they’re working on growing a non-profit charity they began before the race, the One Dollar Project, which fundraises to help out people around the world.

While they were working and living in different places around the world, Haiti, India, Mexico and Thailand, they wanted to give back and get others involved in giving back.

The idea is for every working person to donate $1 a month – whether middle-class or a millionaire – and have it go to different projects like to help homeless children in different countries.

“It’s been so fun growing it this summer, now that we have this show, we want to focus a bunch of energy on that,” said Sukhi.

The show’s finale, with a live after-show, airs tonight.
