YTV's In Real Life
One of my grade 9 students, Sydney, was given a chance at an amazing opportunity this summer. Last year, Sydney created a video entry for the chance to be on YTV's In Real Life and she was chosen to be a competitor on the show! The television series, which is similar to The Amazing Race, has competitors doing real life challenges all over North America. Although Sydney can not say much about her experience yet, we are anxious to see how she does and look forward to talking with her more in depth about her experience once the show ends.This seasons In Real Life airs beginning on Monday, October 3rdand will for run 10-one hour episodes every Monday. Look for Sydney and cheer her on!
EPISODE 1: ARMY RECRUITS

Our challengers are put through their paces in their very first experience as army recruits! They navigate a tough obstacle course, test their resourcefulness by setting up camp in the field and ride Jeeps in hostile territory as part of a patrol. With drill instructors pushing them to their limits, challengers try to soldier their way to the top. In the first twist of the season, challengers get to choose their own teammates!

Sydney has been dancing competitively and winning loads of awards in all kinds of styles from ballet to hip hop since age four. Her friends say she’s kind, creative and tons of fun. In her small hometown, everyone knows each other and there are only 55 kids in her school. But she likes imagining how big the universe is and would love to become an astronaut.
