Tessa Bonhomme, a female hockey player, will skate for the very first in Battle of the Blades, a CBC reality series. Bonhomme is said to join the TV show this fall.
Bonhomme is actually an Olympic gold medalist and also a member of the Canadian national women’s hockey team. According to some sources, Bonhomme will be paired with another Olympic medalist, a gold medalist, figure skater David Pelletier. Their partnership and skills will be tested when the third season of the Battle of the Blades starts this coming September 18.
The CBC reality series really asks professional hockey players to sign up for the show and figure skate with only the best figure skaters of the world.
Some Canadian fans who watched the previous seasons of Battle of the Blades were really amazed by seeing NHL superstars like Todd Warriner and last season’s winner Valeri Bure having all the grace as well as the artistry that best figure skaters show on the ice.
Bonhomme was a member of Canada’s gold medal-winning women’s hockey team during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. And, just like some of her teammates, she has also been a trailblazer for the women’s hockey.
Bonhomme is very excited to take on NHL players and also show them that women’s hockey has come a long way. She also feels that she will be representing the women, as well as every girl that plays hockey in Canada. Bonhomme also believes that she and her partner, David Pelletier, is the team to beat or what others call as the dream team.
Some of the big names who will be joining this season of the Battle of the Blades are former Toronto Maple Leaf Bryan Berard and also the legendary brawler Wade Bleak, who has played for both the Calgary Flames and the Leafs. These Battle of the Blades competitors are not easy beat. They would definitely put up a good fight and this would give fans of the show a very good competition and an exciting show to watch.
Aside from the big names mentioned, there are other great hockey players who signed up for the show as well as big names in the world of figure skating.
All of the teams will be competing for a $100,000 first prize, which will be given to their favorite charity, and the elimination competition series will be shown every Sunday at 8 p.m. on CBC-TV, and the live results will be every Monday, also at 8 p.m.
