MTV Canada will celebrate their former quirky red-headed host in a farewell Special. Jessi Cruickshank: MTV Life will air on Thursday, Oct. 21 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.


Cruickshank will return for the one-hour special, which will also feature MTV hosts Dan Levy, Nicole Holness, Daryn Jones, Aliya-Jasmine Sovani, and Paul Lemieux. They will be taking a look back at Cruickshank’s time at MTV (including her best, worst and most embarrassing moments at the TV channel). 


Cruickshank joined MTV four years ago in 2006. The Vancouver-native was one of the original MTV Live Hosts. The 27-year-old then went on to co-host The After Show and its spinoffs, The Hills: The After Show and The City: Live After Show. The red-headed TV personality, along with co-host Dan Levy, gained an international following through the popular TV shows. 


Cruickshank interviewed a number of stars during her time at MTV Canada, including Tom Cruise, Zac Efron and Adam Lambert. She left the network this year in August in order to pursue an opportunity in Los Angeles.  


Despite moving to the United States, the former MTV host hasn’t said goodbye to Canadian television just yet. She’s a Special Correspondent for the Canadian entertainment show eTalk


Cruickshank continues her collaboration with Me to We and Me to We Style with the launch of The Jessi Africa Tee. Proceeds for the eco-friendly shirt will go towards helping families in rural Kenya.
