The Canadian Club “Adventure of a Lifetime” contest keeps chugging along. With video voting in Round 2 now complete, the focus shifts to the final round. Two teams — one American and one Canadian — will square off in Tonga from April 7 – 14, 2011.

Introducing Team Canada:

  • Jordan Andrew (London, Ontario)
  • Alexander Short (Toronto, Ontario)
  • Doug Vanderby (Toronto, Ontario)
  • Rob Aitken (London, Ontario)

And Team USA:

  • Alex Chepeska (St. Clair Shores, MI)
  • John Daly (Hazlet, NJ)
  • Robert Gale (Hamden, CT)
  • Kristina Beall (Alexandria, VA)

By making the final, these contestants have already won themselves $12,500. The Hide-A-Case campaign is a revival of an original brainchild that began in 1967. Cases of Canadian Club whisky were hidden in remote locations all around the world. Over the years more cases were hidden, some advertised some not. The latest three cases were hidden in 1982 but never advertised. One of those is the one in Tonga, the goal of the current contest.

Once in the Kingdom of Tonga, the teams will compete in a scavenger hunt-style chase, partaking in physical and mental challenges, moving them around different locations and closer to the missing case. The players will be equipped with satellite phones and GPS devices. Only one person will walk away with the $100,000 grand prize.
