Jacques is a Canadian figure skater whose dream was to win gold at the Olympics. When he finally got the chance, he dropped his partner Josee on the ice and the two became national embarrassments. They are conniving performers who signed up for the show to prove that they are still winners, and will do whatever it takes to guarantee a victory all while flashing a show-ready smile. While just as determined to come in first as Josee, he is not as obsessed as she is and tries to be the voice of reason. However, he is not above sabotaging over teams and usually goes along with Josee's demands, taking the brunt of most of the abuse.
