TORONTO – Isabelle Brasseur and Glenn Anderson were the second skating pair voted off of CBC TV’s Battle of The Blades Monday night, but Marie-France Dubreuil and Stephane Richer were saved, yet again.
Brasseur and Anderson, who skated to Frank Sinatra’s Ain’t She Sweet, and Dubreuil and Richer, who performed their routine to Sinatra’s Strangers In The Night, were the two pairs with the fewest votes in the second week of the competition.
Both pairs performed again before the panel of judges, Sandra Bezic, Dick Button and guest judge Don Cherry, for a final chance to remain on the show. This is the second week in a row that Dubreuil and Richer have been saved.
For their efforts, Brasseur’s charity, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, will receive a $12,500 donation, and Anderson’s charity, the Alberta Cancer Foundation for the Cross Cancer Institute, will receive a $12,500 donation.
The six remaining pairs are competing to win $100,000 for the charity of their choice.
The six other pairs returning to compete on Oct. 18 are: Shae-Lynn Bourne and Claude Lemieux, Marie-France Dubreuil and Stephane Richer, Jodeyne Higgins and Ken Daneyko, Christine Hough-Sweeney and Tie Domi, Jamie Sale and Craig Simpson, Barbara Underhill and Ron Duguay.
