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.
