Episode 7

Slip and Slide

Original Airdate: 8 December 2014

  • The Longest Reversing Challenge Ever: This challenge, which has been held annually since Canada's Worst Driver 8, has the drivers reversing a 1993-model Mustang through a 1 kilometre-long course bordered by wheel rims, cars, concrete blocks and foam obstacles. While each driver is allowed to take the challenge at their own pace, Andrew emphasizes that the challenge is timed, and says that ideally, each driver should be travelling at 50 km/h by the latter, wider stages of the course. Tyler is first-up and gets off to a good start, managing not to knock any wheel rims down, but his run quickly falls apart as he repeatedly hits and scrapes the car and smashes both of the wing mirrors. After his run ends, Tyler admits that he missed the point of the challenge, and was focused on completing his run as soon as possible rather than as safely as possible. Chanie gets off to a dreadful start, relying entirely on her wing mirrors to reverse and steering very erratically, resulting in her knocking down nearly half of the wheel rims in the opening section. She goes far slower than Tyler and still hits far more things, causing the other experts to check with Tim as to whether he actually did teach her how to reverse. She ends up hitting 32 objects in all. Jason's run is just as bad as Chanie's in the early sections, despite actually trying to use the correct technique. He does get it together in the latter, wider parts, where he only hits a few objects, but this only frustrates Bart, who points out that while Jason can be competent, he sorely needs to focus more. Before Siham starts, Andrew predicts that she will have easily the best run; a prediction which falls apart in mere seconds as she constantly veers to the right and very rarely looks out the back window, before speeding up to 80 km/h and eventually spinning violently out of the course, meaning that hers actually ends up being the worst performance in this challenge.

  • The Cross: Before this challenge, a brief clip is shown, displaying all of the previous Canada's Worst Drivers' attempts at the challenge, which this year requires them to turn around the Dodge Ram Campervan (which is still covered in signal lights) in a small cross-shaped course made up from concrete barriers. Jason gets the first run, and Bart is surprised and impressed by his performance, which sees him complete the challenge in 21 minutes with no major hits at all. Tyler, meanwhile hits the van 8 times just making the first 90 degree turn. Things only get worse from there, and he ends up smashing off many of the lights along with the van's left-hand strengthening bar; it ultimately takes him 29 minutes to finish the challenge, with a total of 36 hits. Chanie proceeds through the challenge recklessly, without using her mirrors, and while she completes it in the fastest time at just 16 minutes, she hits the blocks 46 times. This, along with the fact that she insists that she did well, causes Andrew to say that Chanie simply doesn't seem to have it in her to ever be a good driver, and suggest that she give up driving, but she angrily rejects this idea. Siham again relies on Wayne to make all the decisions during her run; for once, he actually gives her good advice, but she refuses to follow it and then blames him for the failure of her run, which ends up being better than Tyler's or Chanie's runs, but not by much.

  • The Icy Corner: This was originally supposed to be the episode's Cadillac Challenge, but Andrew reveals that due to damage to the car's electronics, it will no longer start. As a result, the decommissioned police cruiser has been pressed into service for this challenge, which requires the drivers to safely navigate a simulated icy corner at 45 km/h. Each driver gets five attempts. Chanie's first run is a complete disaster, as she drives at nearly 70 km/h, locks up the brakes and doesn't look where she wants to go. She fails her next three runs for the exact same reasons; on her last run she finally gets the technique right, but again speeds and brakes too late, resulting in another failure. As a result, Andrew tells Chanie that she will absolutely be in the final episode. Despite Andrew specifically warning Tyler not to speed prior to his first run, he does so anyway (along with not looking where he wants to go), and predictably fails. He nearly gets it right on his second attempt, but fails after repeatedly pumping the brakes, a mistake he repeats on his third and fourth runs. His fifth attempt nearly ends in success, but he brakes just a fraction too late and clips the end of the wall, failing the challenge. Siham relies on Wayne to monitor her speed during her first run; she subsequently speeds and pumps the brakes, and the run predictably ends in failure. Andrew angrily remonstrates with her over this, and orders Wayne not to direct her, but Siham still fails her next two runs for the same reason as her first, and oversteers on her fourth run. Her final run bookends things by again speeding and pumping the brakes, resulting in her failing. Andrew admits his disappointment, as he thought Siham would easily graduate this episode, but her performance has extinguished any realistic hope of that. Jason is the final driver to take the challenge, and Andrew reminds him not to speed; unfortunately, Jason does so anyway, and locks up the brakes, failing his first run. Jason overcompensates on his second run and stares so intently at the speedometer he forgets to brake at all. He fails his third run by pumping the brake, and repeats this mistake on his fourth run, causing Andrew to visibly despair at the prospect of a 100% failure rate in this challenge. Andrew's worst fears come true, and Jason fails his final run by braking too late and staring at the wall, meaning that for the first time in the show's history, not one driver succeeded at the Icy Corner.

The experts face a major quandary, as there was only one clear challenge pass in the entire episode – namely Jason's performance in The Cross. Of greater concern however is the all-around horrific performances in the Longest Reversing Challenge Ever, and Jason effectively destroys his chances of graduation by saying he thought the point of the challenge was to complete it as fast as possible. Chanie also admits to this, though unlike Jason concedes that it was clearly the wrong thing to do. Siham shows no awareness of how fast she actually went during the challenge. Tyler also gets called out over his bad performance on that challenge, but gets one bit of good news as he's told that since his final Icy Corner run was the best in the challenge and would likely avoid most dangerous situations in real-life, they're retroactively upgrading it to a pass.

Due to the all-around awful performances, Andrew suggests a four-person final. However, the rest of the panel do not take up this suggestion. Their discussions are not shown, but in the end, Andrew gives Tyler his licence back, telling him that as bad as his performances in the reversing and Icy Corner challenges were, they were still the best of the group. This, along with him having more confidence compared to Siham and being more aware of his mistakes than Jason, results in him becoming the season's penultimate graduate. Incidentally, this also makes this the first Canada's Worst Driver season where every driver was shortlisted as a potential graduate at least once.
