According to O’Neil, sometimes customers’ dating videos had outtakes.“The guys very much got in trouble and had to be edited for saying things about what they were looking for …and women were more on the side of saying things about themselves that they shouldn’t have said.”But O’Neil says she was able to learn something from the mistakes of all those video daters looking for love.“Seeing how people presented themselves and the kind of things they could do that would shoot themselves in the foot taught me a lot about how to present myself – obviously in the dating world – but more specifically in the work world,” says O’Neil.“The first time I toured Canada it was on a bus and then I went back across the country three weeks ago and was driving myself.When you’re planning the tour and doing the driving, it’s amazing what you see that you miss from the window of a bus.“My song ‘Save My Life’ was written from the perspective of my brother and uncle heading to Fort Mc Murray. “I worked with my father driving a dump truck and every day we all went to lunch together. They were glad we came, not just for music but to see some new people.It’s one of the things you have to do, but there’s no better feeling than coming back home.” There’s also a song, “Burn It Down,” that was inspired in part by the breakup with girlfriend Melissa O’Neil, whom he met when the two were competing against one another on Canadian Idol. There was only one radio station that we could pick up and it was classic rock. I’ve made friends for life.” As for his future, he said he’ll continue performing live, something he hasn’t stopped doing since 2005. Her curves are natural, Melissa doesn’t have breast implants. She was working at a day care center prior to her success in Canadian Idol.After winning, she not only was able to make a living as a singer but also had several television appearances.
Well, while fans in the United States are getting used to the fact that American Idol is gone forever, or for at least the foreseeable future, the Canadian fans are still celebrating the show’s alumni in Canada.With that much time having passed, it is easy for fans to forget that before she joined Idol, she was an average kid from Canada.
