When he exceeded the requested speed limit during the blind spot challenge he crashed. Andrew identifies her problem as being a lack of confidence in her own abilities, something Dallas and Gene both agree with. Robert was able to overcome his fear of speed. Only Flora knows for sure. She took too long looking into blind spots and crashed straight ahead into objects. When Diane stays calm and controls her emotions, she makes good driving decisions.
Kevin is the third driver in a row to brake too late at the start, with predictable results. The balance and pivoting control is clumsy at best. Episode 5 was an improvement for Diane…for the first challenge of parallel parking. The fact of no graduates by the beginning of week four is a first for the show. She was too far from the curb with each attempt. Kevin is first and on his first run, he drives too fast and holds the steering wheel awkwardly, resulting in him hitting a foam person. Was his hands in the wrong place and each movement counter-balanced the other move? All contents are provided by non-affiliated third parties.
There are five nominees left at the Centre with the recent graduation of Klyne Postnikoff. Flora is more realistic about her chances and admits she may be Canada's Worst Driver. Maybe she needs to gain more knowledge and skill? She actually did survive the avoidance swerve challenge on her second attempt but needed help from Cheryl her nominator to watch her speed. Diane asked Andrew immediately which was the gas and which was the brake pedal. Episode 2 saw the first person leave the show. Will he realize that other people actually do know more than he does? They are also provided assistance in improving their driving by a panel of experts.
Kevin takes the challenge first and soon finds it tough going due to his lack of understanding of the technique, repeatedly crashing into things and taking far more steps than allowed. Azim drives too fast and with only one hand on the wheel in his first run, meaning he can't stop or fully avoid the central obstacle; on his second run, he repeats the same mistake and even turns into the wrong lane, clearly failing the challenge. She needs to learn to think for herself. While Andrew concedes that Kevin's glass eye is a major impediment, he also notes that Kevin could try turning his head more, using his mirrors or asking Flora or Diane for help, none of which he does. But once he returned, she hit things and completely lost her confidence.
One feels that these series of challenges may be a self-fulfilling prophecy of being Canada's worst driver, while on screen admissions by another may be too much for both that person's nominator and the panel of experts. She was nominated by her best friend and business partner, Cheryl Schultz, who now does all the driving for their business. He is considering selling his car if he cannot improve his driving skills. Like Kevin, my vision is also limited to my left eye. Azim is next and takes a scientific approach by balancing the ball on the left-hand side of the front bumper in order to compensate for the strong wind; he scores four times. She copes a little better in the reversing section than any of the previous drivers, though she still knocks down several wheel rims; it's a similar story in the slalom, where she has the best run yet, but still knocks down a foam person.
He returns for the next two sections however and immediately starts ordering her around and even grabbing the steering wheel, resulting in her delivering the worst performance of the day in the reverse section and, like Kevin, going far too slow in the slalom and yet still hitting the foam people. Kevin is the last to take the challenge and, like Margherita, never even gets past the first turn. We do not host, upload or link to any video, films, media file, live streams etc. Challenges are meant to test the driver's limits and build their confidence and the host, Andrew, performs them as proof that any of the tests can be completed by a regular driver. She failed the parallel park with each attempt and not because she hit the curb; she hit the car behind her each time. Dallas is the only driver who shows any desire to graduate. Azim finished in 18 minutes, but Diane finished one minute faster.
She drives a red and drove a silver to the rehab centre. After the challenge, the drivers had their initial meeting with the experts. Not a hope to come close to driving anywhere safely yet. The experts all condemn Klyne for his reckless attitude, both in the episode and toward the ten accidents he caused prior to the show. As for Kevin, yes he has a disability that can affect his driving, but he too is also in denial over his lack of abilities to drive. Before her run, Flora warns Frank to keep his mouth shut; he obliges and she performs flawlessly, passing at the first time of asking.
To cap things off, she even parks several feet away from the pavement at the end of the run. But the show is down one more person in that Dale's nominator, her nephew John, and she had a falling out, meaning that Andrew will now act as her nominator for challenges until John and Dale make up. During his drive he ran through red lights and since he drives slowly all the time, he had plenty of time to stop. That may work as a pedestrian to look just in front of you, but not as a driver. What they are not told until it occurs is that an emergency vehicle will approach, forcing them to parallel park the ice cream truck. Andrew also notices that Kevin tends to drift between lanes and very rarely looks in any direction other than straight ahead when driving, which only exacerbates the problem caused by the lack of vision in his right eye. I think the judges other than Cam and Andrew forgot about that during episode 7.
