Discovery Channel seeks know-it-alls

Mission residents invited to try out for challenge-based reality show

Are you the one people call when they need to find facts fast? Are you a walking Wikipedia?

If so, the Discovery Channel is looking for Canada’s best and brightest minds to compete in a challenge-based reality TV competition that will test a broad range of expertise, experience and skill-sets.

The first season of Canada’s Greatest Know-It-All debuted Jan. 30 with 10 competitors. The challengers depend upon a practical knowledge of physics, mathematics, and engineering to succeed at the challenges.

Each episode contains three challenges, with one competitor eliminated in the final challenge each episode.

The competition is open to all Canadians (18+) of all backgrounds, and people are encouraged to apply or nominate candidates on www.knowitall-tv.com and email your application to cgkia2competitors@gmail.com.
