Battle of the Blades with Kelly Chase
Meeting Old Friends
I have to say, I wouldn’t have made much progress without the help of my partner. She’s a three-time Olympian and a four-time national figure skating champion. She lived in New York and moved here to begin working with the show. We got a head start on working on our routine and she’s helped me learn quite a bit.

As part of the show, we went back to my hometown in Saskatchewan so she could learn more about where I’m from. We were also shooting a TV commercial there and had to perform part of our opening night routine for the commercial.

So we’re walking in the rink and notice that the parking lot is absolutely jammed with cars. It turns out they’re having city-wide tryouts for youth hockey.

Immediately upon walking in, I run into 10 buddies of mine from junior hockey who are there with their kids, trying out for hockey with the city district. They ask what I’m doing there, and I blow off their question until I can’t avoid it anymore.

I eventually tell them I have to figure skate today.

While we’re shooting the commercial and performing our routine, all 10 of them are glued to the glass watching me figure skate. I’ve never been so stressed in all my life. They had a field day with me.

If it’s any consolation, they gave me some feedback. One said “Chaser, that was pretty impressive, but I’m just impressed you didn’t fall down out there.”

Let me tell you something. That was good to hear, because there have certainly been days out there when it hasn’t been so impressive.
