Test the Nation Trip: The Waiting Game

Comments 5 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The sun is out and there’s not a cloud in the sky, but it’s -11 celcius.

This morning we went down to the buffet and checked in with the production team setup in a small office at the hotel to cash in taxi receipts. Last night we ran into someone from the Chefs team in the elevator and I got to thinking – I didn’t even realize I could look up the names of ALL the other 199 contestants that will be on the show tonight. How silly of me.


In the elevator was Karen Barnaby from the Fish House in Vancouver, Bob Blumer from the Food Network will also be representing – he’s the guy with the crazy great hair who rolls around in an airstream souped up to look like a toaster. You can check out the rest of our competition (even the Paris Hilton lookalike) on the Test the Nation site.

I’m going to go wander around town for the next few hours, before checking in at the ‘ceeb. I don’t leave til tomorrow morning so I have a little more time in town tonight although I think some keen Toronto bloggers are initiating a ‘wrap party’ of sorts. Good times.

Update: I took pics this afternoon while on a walk with Kerry Anne.

    Queen West?

    Perhaps there’ll still be good Vietnamese/Chinese eats near Spadina/Dundas, and
    along Bloor West from Spadina west?

    Can’t wait to read about the funness you’ll have in the Hockey Hall of Fame …
