The girls from team 10 look very familiar....
I don't know why, maybe from the Rugby team?

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/canadian-women-s-rugby-team-wins-under-20-nations-cup-1.1353330

The one on the left looks like that girl in the picture, first row far left...
But the other girls face really really rings a bell...or maybe she just looks like someone I know

My initial thought was rugby too. You may be onto something!

I've been perplexed about this team too. Thought some kind of sports. Especially the one on the right, but I also think she looks like Tea Leoni so maybe that's clouding my judgment. I've looked on national cycling, skiing, tobogganning.

Wild guess:

Kelly Russell

Nothing yet on the other girl.

What is that black thing on #8 F's backpack? Only she appears to have one, could be a clue to identity

I think I heard in one of the videos someone shouted, "You can do it Pearl!" or along those lines. Not that great of info, but maybe it can help?

Could Team 9 be soccer players?

These 2 were the closest I got.

That is a great pickup! Here is a close up...y'all remember to PM  me if anything needs clarifying, I have the originals and can zoom in like crazy.)

#9 - The red-haired one, I can see it. Hopefully we get a sighting that shows his face better. Assuming they weren't first out.

The dark-haired one, the forehead and eyes don't entirely match. His face is very similar to Stephen Georg (an American YouTuber, definitely not him), I'm not seeing it in the soccer player.

Yup, we need a better face. I'm checking hockey next for a match.
At first I was thinking of this guy (people are going to hate me for this :groan:):

Hey guys, a whole different possible angle just occurred to me about team #8 from looking at them again. Notice a pattern in casting, each year they cast somebody relevant to something that was a big deal in the past year:

-2014: Canada's women win Gold in Olympic hockey. We then get Natalie & Meaghan, two of the team members, in S2
-2015: Jenner brings the transgender issue to the forefront. We then get Hamilton in S3
-Fall 2015: Ashley Callingbull becomes the first First Nations Mrs. Universe winner, and uses the spotlight to lead a high-profile campaign for aboriginal rights, urging them to vote against Stephen Harper. She is then cast in S4

One of the big things this past year has been the Syrian refugees (citizens and permanent residents are also eligible). And they appear to be of the minority.

WindsorSue also reminded me that in the fall, Mike Bickerton tweeted about casting a team whose audition was "so good, he has no choice but to put them on", I do remember this tweet. I wouldn't put it past Bick, his casting has historically shown he likes people with something unique and inspiring to them.

Interesting outlook on casting. There should be at least one special team in the 10. Casting doesn't disappoint with that.

I thought 8 was Middle Eastern at the start, especially the guy. Now, with the knee brace, could they be in sports?

I feel like were just saying sports for each person. :funny:

I am lmao-ing with "we are just saying sports for each person" but it's true. It's like saying "Sportsball."
Hey I even tried looking up Para-Olympians because we believed the girl had a knee brace. But info, especially pics, are hard to find. Maanca is right, there is usually a team of note...or two.

Oh Boy...the featured team? :funny:

https://www.facebook.com/TheCdnAcademy/videos/10154937977215726/

A team wearing suits. Sounds familiar ;) Maybe they were the team Bickerton "had to cast".

Haven't been able to find them, I've tried numerous angles

I thought entrepreneurs at first. Obviously :funny:
Then, I thought comedians.

They've got some sort of "schtick" going on. Comedians are a good guess. Some kind of act. But I also have them pegged as a mother-son duo. Maybe another Youtuber?

I thought mother son too. I've searched redhead mom and son. Redhead entrepreneurs. Redhead comedian and son. Redhead comedian etc.

I think I'm going to try Youtubers next Sue!
