Discovery Channel program seeking country’s greatest know-it-all

The Discovery Channel is looking for talented, inventive, technology-savvy women to participate in a television show to identify Canada’s Greatest Know-It-All.

“On this show, being a know-it-all and using your knowledge to get through challenges is good, positive, and smart,” says casting director Irada Seli. “I am looking to cast great role models of smart, outgoing women.”

The program puts 10 competitors through a series of unique challenges demanding practical knowledge of physics, mathematics, and engineering. Contestants will also need the ability to overcome the stereotype of know-it-alls as conceited blowhards.

The program will film in June and the application deadline is April 15. Find details and an online questionnaire on the program’s Web site.
