  1. He’s best know for his role on Shark Tank? lol Nice work Bell, picking up the self promoting blowhard that is better suited for a show on FOX news. Just another reason why Canadian TV is run by idiots.

  2. Great news. I never watch/listen to any of those stations/shows, so my chances of inadvertently seeing/hearing this blowhard are pretty much nil :-))
