Winner announced on Battle of the Blades

Tessa Bonhomme has come out victorious in the Battle of the Blades finale tonight.

The female ice hockey player and her professional partner David Pelletier were eth most popular pairing in the third season of the CBC series, gaining the most public votes for the finale.

“I walked in here a hockey player, surrounded by seven figure skating girls and not knowing what to expect and I had the time of my life,” Bonhomme said. “I would do this 20 times over.”

Pelletier said: “I have to start by thanking you Tessa for first of all showing up and trusting me. I know being put up there is not an easy task. My feet leave the ice sometimes, not on purpose, and I get scared.”

Bryan Berard and partner Marie-France Dubeuil were runners-up with Boyd Devereaux and Tanith Belbin third.
