Jessi Cruickshank is one of Canada’s most beloved TV personalities and has been hailed as “one of the funniest women on TV today, period” by The Province. Cruickshank grew up in Vancouver where she broke into comedy as the only girl in an all-male improv troupe alongside Seth Rogen. She soon became a household name as the face of MTV, hosting the daily comedy show MTV Live and smash hit The Hills After Show, which was syndicated in 10 countries and generated record-breaking ratings in Canada and the U.S.
Cruickshank went on to host Live from E!, Jerseylicious, Olympic Morning and recently wrapped six seasons as the LA correspondent for Canada’s #1 entertainment show, etalk. She has also travelled the world as a keynote speaker and the Canadian ambassador for Free the Children.
Cruickshank returned to CBC in the fall of 2016 as one of the co-hosts of CBC’s highly anticipated new daytime show The Goods, and to host Season 3 of Canada’s Smartest Person.
Canada’s Smartest Person airs Sundays at 8 p.m. on CBC.
