Keep an eye on the road, Calgary, because the worst driver in the country may be on our very streets.
The 14th season of Canada’s Worst Driver airs on Monday, October 29, and this time around it will see two Albertans testing their skills (or lack thereof) in four-wheeled competitions.
- Canadian millennials say they need $166,000/yr to feel financially secure
- Fewer Canadians travelling to the States, more Americans heading north
- Alberta to build up to 467 affordable rental homes from shipping containers
Calgary’s own Darris, a 22-year-old who was nominated by his mother, Jen, will be a contestant on the show, brought on in part due to the over 100 serious driving infraction tickets he has accumulated.
Four of Darris’ vehicles have already been written off in the short time that he has been on the road, so if you’ve ever encountered a seriously dangerous and aggressive driver out on Stoney Trail over the past few years, there’s a chance that it was Darris behind the wheel.
“When I’m going fast I feel invincible, I feel like nothing can touch me,” Darris said in an audition tape that shows him weaving in and out of traffic on a Calgary highway.
Another Albertan driver, 62-year-old Karlene from Airdrie, will be on the show after she was nominated by her husband, Darrell.
Karlene is a bad driver for a much different reason than Darris, according to the Canada’s Worst Driver contestant bios, as her main problem is that she has been scared of getting behind the wheel after a bad accident.
“Karlene wants to become a confident driver because she can feel herself becoming isolated; she wants to be more involved in her five kids and nine grand children’s lives,” her bio reads.
Season 14 of Canda’s Worst Driver airs at 8 pm MST on October 29 on Discovery.
