Imagine -.-

They are owned by billionaires its ridiculous. Look up Bellmedia its crazy how much they own in Canada. I have internet, cell phone and home phone with them =.=

Maybe I should protest by leaving them  :cmaslol :cmaslol


Just to warm up the discussion....

let's talk about :

'The Amazing Race Canada' Host: Who Should Helm The Reality Show?

--- Quote ---
OK, OK, we know that due to contractual obligations, most of these people couldn't realistically become the host of "The Amazing Race Canada." In fact, we're willing to bet that it'll be Ben Mulroney who gets the gig. But hey, it's fun to imagine, isn't it?

We've amassed a list of 23 Canadians who we think would do a good job as host, for one reason or another. All we can hope is that he/she matches the greatness that is the US' Phil Keoghan.

Did we miss anyone? Let us know below. You can also vote for your favourite contender in the slideshow.

Ben Mulroney          Jonathan Torrens

Mike 'Pinball' Clemons          Rick Mercer

George Stroumboulopoulos            Howie Mandel

Colin Mochrie                         Jon Montgomery

Rick Campanelli            Frankie Flowers

Shaun Majumder         Michael Kuss

Ross Rebagliati          Trevor Linden

Daryn Jones

Female Contenders :

Leah Miller                Liza Fromer

Trish Stratus                                Nam Kiwanuka

Pay Chen                                   Ashleigh McIvor

My thoughts:

1) Mulroney - he hosts everything -.- and is most connected to most American viewers so I'd say he is the fav.
2) Torrens - Never heard of the guy
3) Clemons - Don't think he'd leave the Argos when they are struggling
4) Mercer - not leaving CBC
5) Stroumboulopoulos - Not leaving CBC
6) Mandel - What would NBC think of him hosting a rival channel's idea (even though in a diff. country)
7) Mochrie - Too old imo
8) Montgomery - Is still a currently active athlete training for Sochi 2014 I don't think so.
9) Flowers - Not leaving City TV
10) Majumder  - Not leaving CBC
11) Kuss - Possible as he works for CTV.
12) Rebagliati  - Retired Olympic gold medalist in snowboarding. Possible
13) Linden - Retired hockey player so possible
14) Jones - Haven't heard of him


1) Leah Miller - Haven't heard of her
2) Liza Former - Don't think she would leave Global television
3) Stratus - Possibility as she hosted a travel show before and has experience (my favourite to host amongst women)
4) Kiwanuka - Haven't heard of her
5) Chen - Haven't heard of her
6)  McIvor - Recently retired Olympic Ski Cross champion, possibly looking for something to do now. She does have connections at CTV as they broadcast the last Olympics.

Best Loser:
Oh my gosh Colin Mochrie hosting The Amazing Race would be the greatest thing ever, and now that his name has been brought up I will be extremely disappointed if he doesn't.

2) Torrens - Would be an excellent host. He was on Joe Schmo 2 and a regular on Trailer Park Boys
7) Mochrie - Great choice
3) Stratus - Great choice charismatic and isn't high maintenance.
4) Kiwanuka - Was great on much music

The rest are either the usual boring suspects or would nagatively impact the show because of their swarmy annoying attitude/persona (Campanelli and Mulroney)

Best choice for this AND Big Brother Canada should be Jason Agnew.
He hosts:
* Door to Door (for the travel network) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfmRqgDx534
* Splatalot (YTV/NickTV in the States) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55ELU01HQv4
* Conventioneers (BiteTV/YouTube) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VSpZtHByCw&feature=share&list=PL5E42ED128138285F NSFW
* Sunday Morning Trivia (CFRB1010 radio) - http://www.newstalk1010.com/Hosts/SundayMorning.aspx
* Live Audio Wrestling (TSN1050 et affliates) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-y2YD2O_zag

PLUS he goes to karaoke! He is funny, gets around (travelled all over Canada/US for Door to Door and Conventioneers), has edge and is willing to get into the spirit of things.

The fact that I plan to see him shave my friend tonight has NOTHING to do with me pimping him so hard.
