Update: There’s a blog on Test the Nation talking about the Blogger Team members who are blogging. Sweet. Oh and Samantha Bee *is* our assigned celebrity.
On Saturday I fly out to Toronto for a trivia quiz along with about a hundred other contestants from various careers and walks of life to participate in Test the Nation on the CBC. Those watching at home on Sunday January 20th at 8:00pm will be able to play along with the television show, or even online. There are several teams (cab drivers, bloggers, backpackers, celebrity impersonators, chefs, and flight attendants) and we’ll all be put to the test with some 21st century trivia.
We’ll be asigned a celebrity to represent us as a whole as well, and there’s a badge up on the Test the Nation site where you can vote for which team you think is going to win – so far flight attendants are ahead of us in the polls.
As a bit of a preview and to pump up my team a little, here are your west coast bloggers that are flying out to represent Vancouver and BC: Buzz Bishop, Ryan Cousineau, Kate, Lainey, Kerry Anne, and Tod Maffin – let me know if I missed anyone. I don’t have time to showcase everyone else on the team but be sure to check out the list and click to some pretty interesting reads.
