TORONTO — Christine Hough-Sweeney and hometown favourite Tie Domi are the fifth pair to be iced on the Battle of the Blades.
Marie-France Dubreuil and Stephane Richer were saved Monday joining the two remaining pairs on the CBC TV show for a chance to win $100,000 for the charity of their choice.
The two pairs with the fewest votes in the fifth week of competition were Hough-Sweeney and Domi, who performed to These Boots Are Made for Walking, and Dubreuil and Richer, who skated to Blues in the Night.
Both pairs performed again before regular judges Sandra Bezic, Dick Button and guest judges Kristi Yamaguchi, the Olympic gold medallist, and her husband Bret Hedican, who won a Stanley Cup with the Carolina Hurricanes, for a final chance to remain on the show.
Hough-Sweeney and Domi’s charity, Diabetes Hope Foundation, will receive a $25,000 donation.
The other pairs returning to compete on Sunday are: Shae-Lynn Bourne and Claude Lemieux, Marie-France Dubreuil and Stephane Richer, Jamie Sale and Craig Simpson.
