The Telegram's Tara Bradbury spoke to Andrew Younghusband, host of the new series Tougher Than It Looks, about the thrills, spills and chills of filming his new show. “I got 5,000 feet over the north Pacific Ocean in a 1943 Stearman biplane,” he says. “I got out and stood on one wing in 200-kilometre winds while the pilot did crazy manoeuvres and loop-de-loops,” says Andrew.

Billy Goes North

July 24, 2016

After taking on the South’s worst critters, North America’s favourite exterminator and pest control expert, Billy Bretherton, has left Louisiana behind, taking on a new challenge – the biggest, baddest pests and wildest animals of the Great White North. Billy’s unconventional and ingenious methods, mixed with his hands-on approach, always get the job done. Billy Goes North (12X30’) follows Billy in his new northern element, and after adding an impressive set of new skills to his pest-fighting arsenal, he is ready to take on whatever the untamed North has to offer, including crazy, out of control critters, and gnarly animals that other exterminators cannot or will not handle alone. In each episode of Billy Goes North, Billy will work with his dispatcher, Bea, as she sends him to fight two big pest problems. Billy will travel from the outskirts of rural Northern towns, farms and suburbs to bigger towns and cities. From wolves preying on livestock and beavers flooding country roads to evicting porcupines from a northern cottage and escaped exotic animals running amok, no job is too difficult for Billy. Whether the job requires ancient, unconventional methods, spanking new technology, a big assist from a local expert, or Billy’s own home-grown style of animal psychology, he’ll never leave his client’s pest dilemmas unsolved.

Tougher Than It Looks

May 15, 2016

How hard is it to do some of the toughest, oddest, most dangerous tasks on the planet? Is it Tougher Than It Looks? Andrew Younghusband (Canada’s Worst Driver) will find out first-hand as he delves into the world of terrifying heights, extreme sports, tough trades, small spaces and strange hobbies.
 
Younghusband’s wild quest will take him into the dangerous, weird and just plain tough, as he meets people driven by passion, who do jobs and partake in pastimes that often look impossible. But are they? In each episode, with minimal training, Younghusband will struggle to keep up with the pros and experts as they explain what they do, while showing him the ropes. Then, he is left on his own to do the job himself and determine, is it really Tougher Than It Looks? From working as a window cleaner on a dauntingly high skyscraper and wing walking on a bi-plane in mid-air, to barefoot water skiing and racing lawnmowers, nothing is too scary or obscure for Younghusband to try at least once.
