Amazing Race Canada 6 is a GO!!!!

....but only for heroes, because apparently we need 'em more every day.

Specifically, they want to cast inspirational people. The Jody and Cory, Nicole and Cormac, Nat and Meg, Jule and Lowell or Karen and Bert types. They want a full cast of Team Give'rs. People who inspire others.

Okay, I see your problem. You think you're just an ordinary person with an ordinary partner. But are you sure? Look at Nicole Foster. I bet she never thought she was anyone's hero until that day in the Yukon when she would not give up on that firing range. Heroes can come in many shapes and forms.

And here is Season 6's first twist: you can nominate a team you believe to be a hero - with or without their knowledge.

Everything you or a potential nominator needs to know is on the Official Casting site HERE but you MUST be quick! Casting closes at 11:59 PM EASTERN TIME on November 29th, 2017.

Good Luck to all who apply! And if all goes according to previous seasons, get ready to RACE by the end of April or the beginning of May, 2018.

The Bachelor Canada Weekly Results a.k.a. "Who Took the "Walk of Shame" This Week?"

Photo Courtesy Corus/The W Network
Who got roses? Who left in tears, broken-hearted that What's-His-Face didn't love her? Who questioned their very existence? You got questions? Here's your answers.

Also, I must provide you with a slight "Spoiler Warning": I'll be updating this as soon as possible AFTER the EAST COAST airing. I know, I know.  Western time-zone problems are a real thing.

But here's the thing - I believe in "event television." Yes, it's a thing too. I live-tweet episodes of my favourite shows, along with a lot of other fans. But, I consider myself a responsible Live-Tweeter, meaning I use the hashtag. So here's my Pro-Tip: If you use Twitter, and do not want to see spoilers of the episode as it's airing, JUST MUTE #BachelorCA or even the words Bachelor Canada. If, however, you insist on using Facebook well then, I'd have to first ask "Why?" (It's useless) Then I would probably tell you to stop following the show site.

Meet the Bachelor Canada's 20 Probable Future Ex-Fiances

Does the title of this post sound...oh, I don't know...a tad cynical to you? Should I tone it down a notch or two? Yah, but no. Damn it, I'm keeping it. I have little or no hope for this season. I am very sure we will be presented with more proof that it's the journey that's important, not a lasting relationship. This will be the fourth installment in The Bachelor/Bachelorette CANADA franchise, and so far no relationships have lasted.

Anyway, here are the girls vying for What's-His-Name's...whatever.

I'll post my first impressions as I go and/or get around to it. Some are just too darn easy. When I first looked at them, I thought, "How did they get the cast of The Bachelorette so right, but this seems so awfully wrong?" But now that I've had a closer look, I've come to realize these are very pretty girls. Some are downright stunning.

But...I'm still not sure about this lead. What the hell was wrong with Mike? Or that sexy tongue guy with the flowing, dark hair? What did Jasmine call him? Oh yeah...Sensual Tongue. Or what about Kyle, the giant cat-guy? He was adorable.

Also, fair warning. If you are looking for some damn politically correct, SJW reflective writing or if you are some sort of whack-job shipper looking for affirmation of your fixation...this is not the place for you. I will be just as critical as every other season. I'm going to have fun with the absurdity.

And They're Off...Amazing Race Canada Season 5

Good Luck.
Make Canada Proud.
Race safe...

It has begun. Filming for The Amazing Race Canada Season 5 began April 26, 2017. This is where you will find my Leg-by-Leg Spoilers, updated regularly.

And this is where I feel it is my solemn duty to inform you that there are spoilers here.

Although, knowing where they are going is not quite as bad as knowing which team is eliminated on which leg. 
Nope, I will do a separate post for that...and that will come later.

So, don't click through unless you want to know...

Big Brother Canada 5: Live Feeds...What's Up?

Up to the time of this post, on the eve of the premiere of season 5, Global has not confirmed when the Live Feeds will begin. Previous seasons have always started right after the first eviction episode airs in the Pacific Time Zone (1 AM ET the next day. Is it odd they haven't announced this, even via Arisa Cox on Twitter? Yes. Is there some reason they haven't? Maybe. Some fans have formulated a theory that it is somehow connected to the first HoH challenge, which was revealed last night on ET Canada. The HGs must work together in teams of two. What they didn't tell us is the TWIST that will determine the HoH out of the winning pair.

This kind of lack of information just makes everyone's head spin. Will it be Canada's vote? Will the other HGs get to choose? Do we get feeds one day earlier, on Wednesday night instead?

Well, the hell with that. I know exactly what's been going on in that house/spaceship.

Whatever happens, remember to have fun enjoying the feeds. Don't feed the trolls, play nice and please leave the HGs families alone on Twitter or on the FB chat.

Lambs for the Slaughter? OR That BBCan5 Cast, Eh?

Well, we were just introduced to our Big Brother Canada season 5 cast. So now what?
Well, now the fun starts. All that analyzing. Reading the bios. Watching the interviews. Running scenarios through our heads.

Here's my two cents: a breakdown of the cast, including Pros & Cons and my Five-🚀 ranking for each. (Those are rocket ships, by the way. Or do I have to explain it to you.)

How to Prepare for 10 Weeks of Big Brother Canada - Revised

Big Brother Canada Season 5 premieres on March 15th. As excited as we all are, we can sometimes forget the consequences it has on our lives. After all, the show runs for ten weeks, and there are three episodes per week. Add in the time spent watching Live Feeds, and you may develop anti-social behaviours.

Follow along as I embark on the 10 WEEK ODYSSEY that is Big Brother Canada. I will be live tweeting the feeds. Well, at least I'm going to try. If you see me there, say hello...I'm mostly nice. Mostly.

MasterChef Canada 4 Cast Announcement

Season 4 of MasterChef Canada has switched up their format.

As revealed in a new promo that premiered in last night’s SUPER BOWL LI broadcast on CTV, in a series first, 24 finalists from across Canada are surprised with their first challenge at their homes and offices in their hometowns. Presented with a box of uncooked rice, each aspiring chef has only 20 minutes to decide what they will make, as well as gather all their ingredients, before they travel to the MASTERCHEF CANADA kitchen in Toronto.

Turning up the heat for the Top 24 this season are returning judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile. Instead of preparing and presenting their signature dish one-by-one, home cook auditions begin on the finalists’ home turf. With only 12 coveted white aprons up for grabs, the home cooks have to prove they have the culinary skills to cut it in the MASTERCHEF CANADA kitchen, as they compete for $100,000 and a life-changing title.

The 24 aspiring home cooks are:

Aaron Polsky, a director of operations, from Montréal, Qué.
Ali Jadavji, a designer, from Calgary, Alta.
Alice Luo, a PhD student, from Toronto, Ont.
Alisha Sood, a make-up artist, from Mississauga, Ont.
Barrie McConachie, an employee relations consultant, from Vancouver, B.C.
Chris Rivest, a YouTuber and nutrition specialist from Calgary, Alta.
Connor Robinson, a musician, from North York, Ont.
Grace Liang, a mining engineer intern, from Sudbury, Ont.
Jason Mayo, a high school teacher, from Jarvis, Ont.
Jay Choo, a medical technician, from Toronto, Ont.
Jillian Nowak, a food blogger, from Calgary, Alta.
Jordan Levin, a server, from Winnipeg, Man.
Justine Joyal, a business student, from Montréal, Qué.
Kimberly Cairns, a paramedic, from Saskatoon,
Kimberly Duffus, a sales rep, from Malton, Ont.
Mai Nguyen, a health and safety advisor, from Edmonton, Alta.
Matt VanderHelm, a category manager, from Toronto, Ont.
May Nazair, a youth centre manager, from Campbellton, N.B.
Miranda Wasstrom, a corporate safety administrator, from Edmonton, Alta.
Nii Addico, a contractor, from Kitchener, Ont.
Raffaele Spataro, a comedian, from Toronto, Ont.
Sheila Lumsden, a homemaker, from Iqaluit, Nunavut
Thea VanHerwaarden, a broker, from Vancouver, B.C.
Trevor Connie, a plumber/gas fitter, from Edmonton, Alta.

Over 12 episodes of MASTERCHEF CANADA, the home cooks will have their culinary prowess
tested through a series of mystery boxes, pressure tests, and team and elimination challenges, with
judges Michael Bonacini, Alvin Leung, and Claudio Aprile providing direction and feedback
throughout the process. At the end of each episode, at least one home cook will be eliminated from
the competition until only two remain to battle it out in the finale for a chance to take home $100,000
and the sought after title of MASTERCHEF CANADA.

Season 4 will air Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning March 2 on CTV and the CTV GO app, with encores Sundays at 7 p.m. ET beginning March 19 on Gusto.
