Black Creek’s Michael Telford will again test his abilities behind the wheel — or lack thereof — on a reunion season of Canada’s Worst Driver.
According to Telford’s friend Eric Kozak, Telford has already signed a non-disclosure agreement with Discovery Channel so he cannot comment.
Kozak nominated Telford for Season Two’s title and rode in the vehicle with Telford six years ago during filming for the TV show.
“He was a terrible driver — and still is,” said Kozak, who adds the nominator rides along in the vehicle and “holds on for dear life.”
Kozak notes eight drivers are chosen for the show and taken to a driver rehabilitation centre. There, they work to improve their driving skills in an attempt to graduate from the rehabilitation centre, and avoid the title of Canada’s Worst Driver.
He notes Telford was one of the final three worst drivers during season Two.
“He almost got the title. The woman who got the title … wouldn’t wear her glasses and while driving through the streets of Toronto on the final driving test, (she) just couldn’t do it anymore and basically broke down in tears.”
According to the television show’s Facebook page, Season Nine — whichTelford will be featured in — is set for this fall.
According to Discovery Channel’s website, Telford took nine attempts to get his driver’s licence, scraped his Mercedes within the first week of owning it and occasionally reads in his vehicle while stopped in traffic, among other things.
“After running out of gas, he once attempted to push his car to the top of a hill, but it was too heavy,” reads Telford’s bio on the website. “The car rolled down the hill and across the Trans-Canada Highway.”
