The contestants do get some paid appearances, but I dont think they get any $ for particiapting. One of my best friends was a contestant on the season with Brad Womak(Sp?).

 

She lives in LA now and gets lots of perks when she goes out, skippign lines and free bar tabs. It is nice when I visit.

ya you're right there are a ton of actors that i forget are canadian. but i think most of the time their accents aren't "used" in movies, etc. obviously jillian isn't an actor so she speaks just like she normally would, but i guess i'm just not used to it because it's so rare that i actually hear it. but i like how she sounds much more polished than a lot of people. smile78.gif

do you watch deal or no deal? howie uses his accent. i can really only tell someone is canadian if they are from quebec or a french canadian... not sure what you girlies are really called!

 

It could be because i live so close to the alberta border that i don't notice. And i used to live in vancouver 3 days out of the week. although there are a few canadians you can tell right off the bat when they say "about"

Well...I'm a born & raised Canadian & I think she has an accent & sounds different than I do. It all depends on where you are from. I'm a Newfoundlander (affectionately known as Newfie!) and there is a HUGE difference between our accents & the rest of Canada. But then when you look at Newfoundland, the east coast has a different accent than west coast. And smaller communities have different accents than the cities. It is all a matter of perspective. I'm sure the same goes for the US. Texas is different than New York, California is different than Massachusetts.

I guess my point is yes, she has an accent! And it's probably not the fact that she was Canadian that you couldn't follow her, but that she has a different way a speaking (regardless of where she is from).

Actually, I agree.. they really do need to stop with that.. maybe the next bachelor!

I'm not really sure what to think about this new season..... Jillian is a nice girl, but I do not want to hear her referring to each guy by what hot dog they are. Plus throughout this season I always felt like she was kinda boring. I hope the new season isn't boring.... we all watch it for the drama and she isn't drama
