I hate the Canadian version! I think it’s new to this season, because I haven’t seen it before. I hate the way they score everything, instead of doing it like the US version of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. They always give half points too! Seriously? Just pick 6 or 7.

Okay, done with the mini rant…

I wouldn’t be surprised if the producers told the brides to spice it up with some ‘zilla-ness to compete with the US version…

My friend went to a wedding where he had to sit with the brides on the Canadian version and he heard them being told to be brutally honest, so they have been told to spice it up for TV.  It’s so much worse than the US version that way!

Yeah, I agree.  There was one I was watching and one girl was making the worst faces as she tasted her food. Like literally sticking her tongue out and gagging like a 5 year old.  Incredibly rude. Yet the food at her wedding sucked too so whatever.

And rolling their eyes, etc. It’s really over the top.  It can’t be real, they definitely have to be coached.

The Canadian version is TERRIBLE! I can’t stand it and I was really excited when it first came on because I figured I would love watching more Four Weddings! Plus the voice over is super annoying! It seems that all Canadian wedding shows have annoying voice overs though hahaha (Rich Bride Poor Bride, Wedding SOS, etc ;))

It is awful, and I am embarrassed this is a Canadian production. Fiance and I enjoy Four Weddings, but will turn it off if the girls are excessively catty.

We watched one Four Weddings Canada and decided it was so much worse: even the announcer is catty!

And the fact that there is no objectivity in the scoring, no “ranking” in each category; just a biased subjective score is awful.

i think a lot of it is fake, just for ‘good tv’.  it’s ashame b/c it makes these girls look like complete bitches.  they probably aren’t that bad irl.

Yeah, the Canadian one is super awful, which disappointed me when it first came out.  It is SO much more catty than the American version.  I finally stopped watching when there was a tie for first place, and instead of awarding the prize to both couples, like the American version does, the producers made the two runner up brides choose the winner!  It was so unbelieble awkward, and clearly a popularity contest.

@Mollytov:  And those times when you have to abstain from drinking.  A drunk canuck is a happy canuck…
