From a media release:
Notable host, creative producer, and writer, Andrew Younghusband is taking over primetime television Monday nights! Discovery, Canadaâ€™s most-watched entertainment specialty network, continues rolling out its biggest-ever fall lineup with the season premiere of CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER, airing Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT followed by the networkâ€™s newest original Canadian series, TOUGHER THAN IT LOOKS? at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT, beginning Oct. 24.
Discovery introduces TOUGHER THAN IT LOOKS? starring Younghusband as he delves into the toughest jobs, attempts to tackle terrifying heights, extreme sports, small spaces, and strange hobbies. Shot in ultra-vivid 4K UHD, each 30-minute episode finds Younghusband on a mission to tackle wildly different experiences with minimal training, including working as a window cleaner on a dauntingly high skyscraper, wing walking on a bi-plane in mid-air, barefoot water skiing, setting world records, and even racing lawnmowers. Nothing is too scary â€“ or obscure â€“ for Younghusband to try â€¦ at least once.
But first, Younghusband is back at the Driver Rehabilitation Centre in Dunnville, Ont., for CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER as eight disastrous Canadian drivers take on various challenges behind the wheel in Season 12. CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER was Discoveryâ€™s most-watched series last season and ranked as the #1 Canadian series on entertainment specialty television among the key adult demos (A25-54 and A18-49). The series also saw a double-digit audience growth among the A25-54 (+15%) and A18-49 (+18%) demos, when compared to its previous season.
This yearâ€™s reckless and irresponsible drivers hail from Winnipeg, Edmonton, Hamilton, Ont., Kitchener, Ont., and beyond. Each nominated by a friend or family member, these truly terrible drivers are put through driving challenges in a controlled environment and evaluated by a panel of driving experts: CP24â€™s Cam Woolley, traffic expert and former OPP sergeant; Philippe LÃ©tourneau, a professional high-performance driving instructor; expert driving instructor Tim Danter; and registered psychotherapist Shyamala Kiru.
A first for CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER this season, Younghusband examines and compares Canadian driving laws with the customs and driving cultures of other countries, all while administering the seriesâ€™ trademark tried-and-tested challenges designed to push this yearâ€™s driver participants to their limits. Week by week, one driver graduates from the training centre, and merges back on to the open road with their head held high.
The season finale sees the remaining three drivers face the last challenge before one finalist is ultimately named this yearâ€™s â€œWorst Driverâ€. Viewers can catch up on all previous season finales of CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER online now at Discovery.ca. Previous seasons of CANADAâ€™S WORST DRIVER are streaming now on Discovery GO and CraveTVâ„¢.
