Jessi Cruickshank is the Canadian Screen Award-nominated host of Canada’s Smartest Person, and The Goods on CBC. 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 show MTV LIVE and smash hit The Hills After Show; which became the first series in Canadian television history to be live-simulcast to the US. Soon after she re-located to Los Angeles to host Live from E!, Oh Sit! Fashion Fail, Jerseylicious, and recently wrapped 6 seasons as the L.A. host of Canada’s #1 entertainment show, eTalk. Jessi earned rave reviews as the host of the 2015 & 2016 CCMA Awards and can currently be seen as a guest-anchor on E!’s Daily Pop. She splits her time between Toronto and Los Angeles.
