OAKVILLE, Ont. – Jason Priestley is in Oakville, Ont. today, helping Tim Hortons whittle down its list of doughnuts dreamed up by the Canadian public.
The Vancouver-born actor will help the restaurant chain choose an eight-pastry short list from one month’s worth of entries from their “Duelling Donuts” contest.
Priestley appeared in an episode of the sitcom “How I Met Your Mother” last February where he claimed he had invented “The Priestley,” a strawberry-vanilla doughnut with a chocolate Timbit nestled inside.
Tim Hortons then made a mock batch of the fictional pastry.
Priestley is best known for his role as Brandon Walsh on “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
The contest winner will receive a $10,000 grand prize.
Canadians can vote for their favourite doughnut online, beginning Aug. 5.
