Would you be able to tell when an Olympian is lying to you? Well, these familiar faces’ fates in the competition depended on it. The road to redemption is never easy, dear readers, and this week, three-time Olympic figure skating medallist Kaetlyn Osmond stopped by to tell a few lies to our competitors and test their social intelligence.
As you know, the top four already claimed their spots. But in a total twist last week, we learned two spots were still up for grabs. Here’s how redemption week played out.
Let’s be honest, Ashley’s reaction is us whenever we try to play along at home.
We hooked up Kaetlyn Osmond to a lie detector and it turns out we found something that cracks this Olympian's nerves of steel.
Still, she told some pretty compelling stories to throw our competitors, and it turns out it’s hard to tell when a current reigning world-champion skater is lying to you!
We agree, Ashley!
Things got so intense, they even took a little song break with our host Paul Sun-Hyung Lee to calm their nerves.
Matthew S. was eliminated in the speed round, but let’s take a moment to appreciate some of the amazing excitement GIFs he gifted us during this episode:
Liam H.’s confidence paid off and he secured his spot in the finale, along with Alexia.
And drumroll please... because these are your finalists, Canada!
Tune in to the finale next week at 8 p.m. (8:30 NT) on CBC to see who takes home the title of Canada’s Smartest Person Junior. And you can also catch it on CBC Gem!
