From a media release:
JAMIE SALÃ‰ AND THEO FLEURY ARE THE FIFTH ICED PAIR ON BATTLE OF THE BLADES
- Isabelle Brasseur and Todd Warriner return for another week
Though they skated to the Bee Gees Stayin’ Alive, it just wasn’t enough to keep Jamie SalÃ© and Theo Fleury safe this week, as they became the fifth eliminated pair on BATTLE OF THE BLADES. Isabelle Brasseur and Todd Warriner, who also found themselves in the bottom two, will remain in the game for another week maintaining their chance to win a $100,000 donation to their charity of choice.
Wowing the crowds and completely getting into the character of their chosen film, Saturday Night Fever, Jamie and Theo’s routine earned them a total score of 17.1 from the judges after Sunday’s performance. This week’s judging panel: Sandra Bezic, Jeremy Roenick and guest judge Toller Cranston were clearly distraught with their decision to eliminate this pair who were obviously crowd favourites; but after two falls and a technically flawed performance, they were left with no choice. For their efforts, The Men’s Project will receive a $25,000 donation in Jamie and Theo’s honour.
With just two weeks left in the competition, the final four pairs will compete on Sunday, November 14: Shae-Lynn Bourne and Patrice Brisebois, Isabelle Brasseur and Todd Warriner, Katia Gordeeva and Valeri Bure, Kyoko Ina and Kelly Chase.
