From a media release:
CABLE PULLER TO ICE CLIMBER TARA GAUCHER SELECTED AS MY TOP 10 HOST ON TRAVEL+ESCAPE
- Series Begins Production In Iceland
- Original Series Premieres Fall 2013
Travel+Escape is proud to announce the winner of the Travel+Escapeâ€™s My Top 10 Travel Host Search is Edmonton, Alberta born Tara Gaucher. Production begins in Iceland on the new hour-long documentary series Travel+Escapeâ€™s My Top 10, and premieres fall 2013.
With over 500 entries there was no shortage of talent, but it was twenty-seven-year-old Tara Gaucherâ€™s, funny and engaging personality and anecdotes that separated her from her competitors. A born entertainer and seasoned traveller thanks to her love of dance, stand-up comedy and performing, Taraâ€™s quick-witted charm and thirst for knowledge proved she could hold her own when providing viewers with the kind of engaging adventure travel Travel+Escape fans have come to love.
Taraâ€™s journey begins with her dream destination, Iceland. There, sheâ€™ll shoot the pilot episode for My Top 10 and begin her new Travel+Escape Digital Magazine column detailing her travels and giving audiences a behind the scenes look, as she tastes local delicacies like sheepâ€™s head and puffin. While there sheâ€™ll take her body to the limits as she glacier hikes, ice climbs and gets the chance to train with one of her heroes, the fittest woman in the world, Iceland Annie.
