* Jillian from Season 11. She had the best technical skills out of all of the nominees, and could have graduated early, but she stayed on. Unfortunately, her performances dropped in the second half, and she couldn't get the confidence to drive on the roadtest.

** Angelina in ''Ever''. Seeing her slowly descend into a sobbing BrokenBird is heartbreaking, you just want to hug her and let her know that the world is not all out against her.

** Daniella from Season 12 generally did well in the challenges throughout the season, but consciously or otherwise kept talking herself out of graduating by admitting that she still felt very nervous about the idea of driving in public. It ultimately culminated in her completely losing it on the highway segment of her final drive and Andrew having to make every decision for her, with only Krystal's trainwreck of a final drive preventing Daniella from being named (or even considered as) the worst.

** Paul from Season 6, despite being the best that season, didn't graduate until the fourth episode (the first case was Scott's expulsion, and the second case was that Cam barred him from graduating as he failed the Icy Corner Challenge). Brad was shortlisted two times, but his main problem was that his wife was more in control of the decisions than himself. He did manage to become the last graduate though.



** Colin (season 2) and Scott (season 6) are both InUniverse for their arrogance and not taking the show seriously, after Scott was expelled, Paul said "Maybe this will wake him the @##! up".

** Dale, especially after her antics in ''Ever'', which ultimately resulted in her being expelled in the penultimate episode and made many viewers think she should have still received the title despite being expelled (and she almost did).

** Dale, especially after her antics in ''Ever'', which ultimately resulted in her being expelled in the penultimate episode and made many viewers think she should have still received the title despite being expelled (and she almost did). If she wasn't hatted for that, she's more likely hated for trying to ''run over'' Andrew and pass it off as a "joke".



** Sholom in Season 11 is this for most fans. His total oblivious was just painful to watch, and failed all but one challenge. Fans of Jillian were more angry when he was passed over as the worst that season in favor of Jillian

*** Speaking of Jillian, a few people hate her for blowing up at her finace Mitchell even though he was there to help.



** Krystal in Season 12 was already hated by fans before the first episode even finished. Her driving is scary to the point of putting her nominator (and brother) in harm's way, and she argues that she isn't the worst because she hasn't killed anyone yet. Fans on Facebook say she will either be named the worst this year, or expelled like Colin and Scott.
*** Her attitude once she is in rehab doesn't look any better either, in fact it might be worse. She looks more focused on her phone than the challenges, and even put down Tim's and Phillipe's driving lessons and techniques during the panel section, stating that she "doesn't need to use them" even though those techniques help her to be ''safe''. She also instantly developed a visible resentment and strong dislike of '''Andrew''' for calling her out on her horrendous driving.
*** The pinnacle of her Scrappyness is in Episode 4 where she disregards the "Distracted Driving Challenge" for showing how her texting can be dangerous, and somehow claims to the experts that [[BandWagonTechnique she can text and drive because everyone else is doing it]]. When Andrew and Cam call her out on it, she cusses and flips the bird at Andrew and leaves the room. And yet she isn't [[KarmaHoudini expelled because of it]], although many fans speculate that the most likely reason for not expelling Krystal is that the show does not want to give her the satisfaction of being kicked out of the show. It is later confirmed that at the time Andrew and the CWD panel thought that they still could help her and did not want to seem like they were giving up.
*** Her driving skills and behavior only went FromBadToWorse as Season 12 progressed, and it didn't look pretty. By the time Episode 5 & 6 aired, she is now constantly arguing with her nominator (and brother) Steven, starts refusing to do challenges because she believes that Andrew and Steven is the problem, throwing angry temper outbursts and tantrums and keeps blaming other people for making her feel bad. By Episode 7, her fights with Steven turned physical and she is now being openly hostile to the panel of experts and Andrew himself. Even Andrew asks about the open hostility, and finds out that Krystal thinks that he is the problem.
*** Also, in a terrible record first that could be predicted as early as Episode 1, Krystal managed to upset, anger and piss off the entire CWD panel of experts with her wild and dangerous behaviors, in the order listed below:
*** Andrew, where Krystal constantly attacked him for pointing out (correctly) that her driving is putting others at danger, leading Andrew to state on camera that her drama is tiring him out. His breaking point was when he fustratedly had to state that Krystal's texting and driving habit was endangering the crew and showing that she did not commit to her promises of not texting and driving while moving in Episode 7. The true point however is in the final episode where her many in fractures on the road laws, combined with her road rage text dependent usage, and constant yelling at Andrew, caused him to finally have enough, and call of the road test.

*** The last episode was possibly the worst of her. She laughed when Daniella was having a hard time on the three in a car challenge, causing everyone to [[DudeNotFunny lash out on her behavior]], and ending with her leaving the car in frustrated denial. This caused her brother to refuse to look at her anymore and [[ScrewThisImOutOfHere disappeared for the rest of the episode]], although the show probably let him walk off the set for his own well being. Then her public road test was considered the worst out of the three, and her constant ignorance, infractures, and yelling at Andrew were too much for him to handle, causing Andrew to end the road test abruptly after she deliberately turn a corner sharp and fast, and him walking off and making his own way back to the rehab center in the camera car. With no needed discussion, the panel names her the worst this year (without the trophy because she didn't earn it), and she ends her tenure as the most hated person on the show.

*** Teagan, at least to the contestant perspective. While Ashley was the better technical driver of the final four and was up on the short list for the fourth time, Teagan was the best out of them in 2 of the three challenges. The three females (Ashley, Amy, and Emily) were not happy about the decision (though Andrew did admit that the decison, regardless of the outcome, would not have produced a good reaction).
*** In any other season, Emily would have been named Canada's Worst Driver based on her lack of skillset. However, she barely managed to leave without the title because Ashley's anger problems kept were seen as more of an impending problem on the road. Also while Emily did get glasses to address here eye sight problems, Ashley never made any attempt to control her road rage problem (especially toward her husband).

*** Jamie from the same season can be this as well. Compared to her, Brad was the better technical driver, but she showed more confidence in the wheel, while Brad still hadn't fully gotten his wife to cooperate with him yet.



*** Chris managed to graduate from Episode 1, which normally is the episode where no one graduates. However, he was the best driver of the nine, so they didn't need to keep him on any longer.

However, when Renee mentioned that she wouldn't drive her son on the highway just yet, the show felt to keep her for one more week and graduated Jordan instead.

** Mariah from Season 10 was an early favourite to end up as the season's worst driver, due to her lackadaisical attitude and unrepentant admission of drink-driving. Over the course of the season she made a genuine effort to improve, and fully redeemed herself by getting a "no drinking and driving" tattoo on her arm when she graduated.
