Considering the always increasing popularity of reality television, we demand to know why there aren't more coming out of Toronto. There are tons of things happening in and around the city at all times that we know would kill in the ratings.
The city of Toronto boasts over 2.5 million people, factor in the additional 5.5 million living in the GTA and you can guarantee that you are going to meet a ton of worthy characters. We wanted to get our hands wet and brainstorm a couple of ideas. Share yours with me on Twitter.
1. The Weeknd
Potential Title: Weeknd Update
The rebel from Scarborough with super cool hair and a killer voice? Why wouldn't we want to follow him around on his adventures? Plus we would've probably been along on thatto Vegas.
Potential Title: Hau5 of Mau5
Deadmau5 is notoriously private but most people are familiar with his outspoken, no holds barred, tell it like it is attitude. Quite frankly, he's rude and it would be entertaining as hell to watch it happen.
3. The Ford Family
Potential Title: Policy Brothers
Move over Jonathan and Drew, there are a new set of Canadian brothers taking over the reality television world. Policy Brothers would be the perfect mix of funny and heartfelt but mostly funny. We're also willing to bet Kimmel would invest.
4. Toronto Batman
Potential Title: Batman on Bloor
The cameras could follow Toronto Batman on his quest to protect and entertain our streets. Batman on Bloor would require lots of GoPro shots and a rival show featuring Brampton Batman.
5. Dallas Green & Leah Miller
Potential Title: Meet The Greens
Canada's biggest question mark inducing couple. You know you need to see what it is that brings these two together. What do they talk about over dinner?
6. Eugene & Dan Levy
Potential Title: Father Versus Son
Everyone loves Eugene Levy and his rare knack for appearing in every movie, ever, but don't forget about his funny son, ex-MTV Canada personality, Dan Levy. Father Versus Son would be an incredible competition between the two to see who can out-funny the other.
7. OB Obrien & Ryan
Potential Title: The 6ix
You may be thinking you want a Drake reality television show to happen but he is only as cool as his entourage. These two are the real stars, OB Obrien and Drake's assistant/cousin Ryan would definitely bring the laughs, getting into all kinds of crazy situations while accompanying Drake on tour, to Raptors games and other things that Drake does.
8. The Subbans
Potential Title: Up To Speed With The Subbans
The Subban family still reside in Toronto and with so much talent squeezed into one family we could only imagine how great they would be to watch. Up To Speed With The Subbans is like Keeping Up With The Kardashians only less fame-whoring and more family.
9. Patrick J Adams
Potential Title: Suited Up
This guy is smart, he's talented, he's successful and he's engaged to a Pretty Little Liar, who doesn't want to watch behind the scenes of his life between Toronto, LA and NYC, the filming of Suits and his wedding planning?!
10. Elisha Cuthbert & Dion Phaneuf
Potential Title: She Only Dates NHL players
While neither of them are technically Torontonians by blood they do call Toronto home for a good chunk of the year. You know you want to see this show happen so we can get to the bottom of the whole did she or didn't she cheat with Joffrey Lupul rumour!
