Episode 5

A Turn For the Worst

Original airdate: November 24, 2008

The five remaining contestants work on their skills in making smooth turns at the Driver Rehabilition Centre. At the end of the previous episode, it was revealed that all four women remaining normally wear poor driving shoes to drive, which can be a hazard. Thus, all four women were ordered to do every subsequent challenge in "driving shoes".

  • Driving Distracted – Each of the remaining drivers must drive clockwise in a circle while having to perform several tasks (including answering the phone, reading out of a driver's manual, operating an electric shaver, and drinking Gatorade) while maintaining speed. For Ashley, Bryan himself may be a distraction, as she nearly breaks down (and eventually gets her revenge by dumping her bottle of Gatorade in his lap). Lindsay realizes that text messaging while driving (which she does as part of her job) is a particular problem, as it could be outlawed in her jurisdiction (it is already illegal in every province east of Ontario except for PEI). Mat also gets a laugh at Teagan's expense when a collision with a barricade results in Teagan spilling Gatorade all over himself. Dan mentions that accident odds increase 100% per teenage passenger. Emily's problems are compounded by her poor vision (stopping in the middle of the course to answer the phone). Amy, who uses cigarettes to calm herself on the road, learns that even lighting up could be dangerous. This challenge is undertaken as an education measure and is not considered part of the "competition" aspect, so there are no winners or losers. All of the drivers eventually hit the barricades on the course.
  • The Snake – The episode's showcase challenge has the drivers move through a tight obstacle course through various slopes (upwards, downwards, and to the sides). Ashley, scheduled to go first, is delayed because she did not bring flats, making Lindsay go first. Lindsay finishes faster than Andrew, but hits nine things. Emily falls off the track many times (requiring the crew to lift the car back onto the track). Teagan, who navigated the course on his skateboard with ease, slowly pulses his way through the course. He admits that a few more similar courses could improve his skills. Amy manages to remain calm after falling off the track on the first two turns, and manages to finish the rest of the course without hitting anything. When Ashley returns, she finishes the course in 90 seconds with minimal error—the fastest out of any of the contestants. This perplexes the experts, so Andrew challenges Ashley to do the course in reverse. Ashley promptly breaks down, arguing with Bryan, taking more than 15 minutes to round the first turn. However, Bryan manages to calm her down after that ordeal at the end when she gives up going in reverse.
  • Swerve and Avoid – In this episode's lesson, Philippe teaches the contestants to swerve, emphasizing to never brake while swerving. The contestants have three attempts to accelerate to 35 km/h (originally 40 km/h, but lowered at the last moment) and swerve in the direction opposite where a fake taxi appears, either to the left or the right. Amy, going first, fails her three runs (the first when she swerved towards the fake taxi, the second one when she was confused by the absence of either fake taxi, the third by swerving too wide). Emily also fails her three runs, partly due to her poor vision and partly due to poor cornering. Ashley, motivated by her son's first birthday at the end of the week (which she will miss if she does not graduate this episode), also fails her three runs, driving into the fake cab every time. She is also there to watch Lindsay fail her three runs (once while underspeed). Teagan also fails his three runs from oversteering.

The fact that all five failed the Swerve and Avoid challenge makes the experts' choice of who to graduate difficult, and Andrew is not comfortable with graduating anyone. Emily admits that she had owned glasses ten years ago and has stopped wearing them, but agrees to allow the show to arrange an eye exam for her. Ashley admits that her emotions are getting the best of her. Teagan admits his issue may simply be inexperience. Amy admits disappointment in her challenges, but still admits that there is improvement to be had. The experts shortlist comes down to Lindsay and Ashley, with the panel split between the two. Andrew, in the end, declares that Lindsay was the better of the two, and even had graduation in the bag before the Swerve and Avoid, but because she failed, no one graduates this episode.
