MTV celebrates former host Jessi Cruickshank in the farewell special Jessi Cruikshank: MTV Life, Oct. 21

She captured our hearts as the quirky and loveable host of MTV’s Gemini-nominated series THE AFTER SHOW. And now everyone’s favourite quick-witted beauty, Jessi Cruickshank, returns for a final MTV goodbye in JESSI CRUICKSHANK: MTV LIFE on Thursday, Oct. 21 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.

In this one-hour special, Cruickshank, along with fellow MTV hosts – Aliya-Jasmine Sovani, Dan Levy, Daryn Jones, Johnny Hockin, Nicole Holness, and Paul Lemieux – look back at some of the best, worst, and most embarrassing moments of her career at MTV. From asking Taylor Lautner to take his shirt off, to ripping her pants in front of Adam Lambert, and the most-awkward lap dance ever (thanks Heidi and Spencer!), this unforgettable special lets fans re-live their favourite Jessi moments one more time.

Vancouver-native Cruickshank joined MTV in 2006 as one of the original co-hosts of MTV LIVE. She then moved on to co-host THE AFTER SHOW and THE AFTER SHOW spinoffs, THE CITY: LIVE AFTER SHOW and THE HILLS: THE AFTER SHOW, which catapulted her and co-host Dan Levy to international stardom. Cruickshank has also interviewed a multitude of A-List celebrities during her time at MTV, including the casts of THE HILLS and the Twilight saga, Tom Cruise, Adam Lambert, Backstreet Boys, Ryan Reynolds, Bill Gates, Zac Efron, among others. Cruickshank left MTV in August 2010 to pursue an opportunity in Los Angeles.
