Andrew Younghusband: It is with equal parts pride and humility, sadness and joy that I am writing to inform you all that Canada’s Worst Driver is officially finished. Done. The great runaway hit has finally crashed and burned.
I had really hoped we would get to do a “Goodbye” season to end the series with a tip of the hat to the faithful audience, but alas, we are simply done without any fanfare.
Many, many, many thanks to the hundreds (yes hundreds!) of people who have worked on the show over the years. Your creativity and grit, both on set and behind the scenes, are what made CWD the longest running reality series in Canadian TV history.
Thanks to Discovery Channel and all the good people there, too.
And let’s not forget the Worst Drivers themselves! No prizes, no paychecks, no reason to be on the show other than to learn. You folks, and the men and women who nominated you, really put yourself out there, and for that, I can not thank you enough. Your willingness to overcome obstacles on camera has saved lives, for when you learned, Canadians learned, and that has prevented countless accidents.
But the biggest thanks of all, of course, goes to our late, great leader Guy O’Sullivan. He started a production company based on the single sale of season one of CWD back in 2005, and that company, Proper Television, still thrives today.
I love you Guy. You changed my life. You changed a lot of lives. All for the better.
Thanks for a great ride, everybody! And keep looking where you want to go.
