Jessi Cruickshank


The 2nd annual Insurance Business Awards will be hosted by
The Goods and Canada’s Smartest Person – Jessi Cruickshank!

Called “the funniest woman on TV today, period”, by The Province, Jessi Cruickshank is the host of CBC TV’s Canada’s Smartest Person, and the co-host of the network’s new daytime talk show, The Goods, where her self-deprecating humour, irreverent interview style, and eclectic flair for fashion has quickly made her a fan favourite. Jessi’s ease in front of an audience and her personable demeanour make her a natural choice for a wide variety of events — from hosting and moderating, to keynotes and endorsements.

Jessi broke into comedy as the only female in an all-male improv troupe alongside Seth Rogen. She soon became a household name as the face of MTV, hosting MTV Live and The Hills After Show, which was syndicated in ten countries and generated record-breaking ratings in Canada and the United States.

Jessi went on to host Live from E!, Oh Sit!, Jerseylicious, Olympic Morning, and recently wrapped six seasons as the Los Angeles-based host of Canada’s #1 entertainment show, eTalk.

Jessi also travelled the world as an ambassador for Free the Children, now known as
