New Dragon Named

A new dragon has been selected to replace Robert Herjavec on CBC TV's Dragons' Den.

David Chilton, author and publisher of the multi-million selling Wealthy Barber books, will bring his common sense approach to judging investment proposals from Canadian entrepreneurs seeking help from the Dragons.

"David Chilton embodies Canadian entrepreneurial success, and through his terrific books he has shared his financial advice for the benefit of everyone," said Julie Bristow, executive director of studio and unscripted programming.

I've met David, and he's a very smart guy. He's more than an author, he's the creator of one of the most successful brands in Canadian publishing. He cuts through bombast and mebellishment with a knife. Plus, he's got a great sense of humour. So, should be an interesting season. (Season 7 starts taping in just a few weeks!)

By the way, auditions continue for entrepreneurs and innovators to pitch their ideas on the show next season. With 20+ new episodes planned, the producers really want and need quality pitches.

You can apply online at Or attend one of the remaining open auditions, listed below, scheduled over the next 10 days. Calgary, Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto residents (not to mention Kamloops, Collingwood, Windsor and Sarnia) still have a chance to strut their stuff! (For more info visit
