The Paton family of Chilliwack has been glued to the TV for weeks, watching the antics of Team Buttercup as they take on geocaching challenges.

Saturday is the final episode of the exciting YTV reality show Cache Craze.

Chilliwack teens Garrett Paton, 19, and Connor Paton, 16, are in fact Team Buttercup, says their mom, Holly Paton.

They’re competing for the $10,000 prize on Cache Craze, described as a cross between The Amazing Race and Wipe Out.

Paton said it’s been “a party every week” following the episodes, as the two teens take on challenges seeking out geocaches and taking on obstacle courses.

“It started with eight teams. They were chosen to be on the show after auditions across Canada.”

Garrett and Connor’s audition tape to the Cache Craze crew was a videotaped skit of why they thought they should win the competition. Connor wants to be an actor, she adds.

Now, they’re closer than ever to actually winning the whole thing, after making it through weeks of competition and timed challenges.

“It’s something all of Chilliwack can watch and get behind, as two of their own have done very well,” says Paton.

Team Buttercup has been vying for the prize against teams like former Canuck Brad May and his daughter, Samantha.

“Tonight (Monday) is a replay of Saturday’s episode. The boys have been representing us pretty good.”

Saturday is the finale of the show when the winners will be announced.
