Canada's Worst Driver - S05E01
Episode 1: Basic Training Original Airdate: October 26, 2009 The program begins on a rainy afternoon, as the contestants depart for the Driver Rehabilitation Centre, following a list of simple instructions. The contestants depart in the following order: Melissa, Father Giles, Jojo, Mike, Arun, Crystal, Angelina, and Jakob. Everyone makes a large number of moving violations on the way to rehab, and the contestants arrive in the following order: Melissa, Father Giles (never at the limit the whole trip), Mike (despite stopping for directions), Jojo (speeding the whole way), Crystal, Jakob, Arun, and Angelina (wildly off-course after making the wrong first turn). Basic Skills -- The skills evaluation is performed in a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow vehicle this year, and involves a tight reverse course, before turning the car forward inside a concrete box and driving into a 45 km/h slalom before crossing a white line and braking, stopping in front of a wall. Mike, going first, gets stuck in reverse (and was excused from the box because of it), and fishtails out of control in the slalom. Crystal fails her slalom due to holding a cigarette in her hand and thus having one hand off the steering wheel. Jojo has no issues in reverse or in turing the car forward, but hits the slalom obstacles repeatedly. Angelina is the first to hit the car inside the box, and hits the slalom obstacles going half the required speed. Arun hits the very first obstacle going into the reverse portion, and fishtails out of control on the slalom. Melissa goes the entire course with strong verbal abuse from Wil, and Wil going as far as to abandon her in the concrete box. Worst of all, she hits the wall in the end. Father Giles hits obstacles on the way to the slalom, where he never makes it above 40 km/h. Finally, Jakob learns firsthand the trademark difficulty of Canada's Worst Driver's challenges, as he gets stuck in the concrete box and nearly rolls the car over in the slalom, in a course that he originally dismissed as "easy". In the evaluations, Mike and Jakob admit to not as being skilled as they had originally thought, while everyone else is taught harsh lessons by the drivers. The first graduation is not until the next episode, as this was merely a skills evaluation. But what is known is that while one may graduate soon, another is Canada's Worst Driver. Discovery Channel's web extras for this episode: Jakob: Punk or Poseur? - Jakob, in the confessional, trashes Andrew while discussing his own attitude issues and the fact that he admits that all eight contestants are bad drivers, but then retracts his trash-talk when he fears that Andrew will retaliate based on his comments the next day. Crystal - Crystal, in the confessional, discusses her past driving history, and her distractions behind the wheel. She also gives her first impressions on Andrew. Arun - Arun, in the confessional, admits that he had failed to notice that his handbrake had been on or five minutes during his first drive, and how he had not worn seat belts before due to "cramping his style". However, he is optimistic about learning at the Driver Rehabilitation Centre.
