Hailey joins Dan Clapson, who shares her love of reality television and especially 'The Traitors Canada' and 'The Great Canadian Baking Show'. Both shows premiered recently, so the co-hosts chat with the series' respective hosts, actor Karine Vanasse and comedian Ann Pornel.
While 'The Traitors Canada' is chock full of lies, deceit and drama (in the best way possible), most Canadians know that 'GCBS' is all about those heartfelt moments and friendly competition.
