Mitre 10 Jack of All Trades on TV One

Forget singing and dancing, this year’s new competition is all about finding the kiwi with the best all round trade skills.

Mitre 10 Jack of all Trades starts on TV One, Saturday May 12th 2007 at 5pm and runs for 8 episodes which will be available for download from the official website. The final will screen at 5pm on Saturday 30th June 2007.

Contestants will take part in a multi skill Trade Challenge consisting of tasks against the clock in; Brickwork, Carpentry, Waterproofing, Painting, Oxy Cutting, Tiling, Demolition, and Work Vehicle Handling.

Qualifying events will be held at MITRE 10 stores in Christchurch and Wellington in March. The best 8 contestants will be in the national final to be staged in Auckland in April, meaning that the show doesn’t appear to have any live component to it.

The winner of the Mitre 10 MEGA Jack of All Trades will be crowned “New Zealand’s Greatest All Round Tradie” and win prizes to the value of over $100,000 including a Mitsubishi Triton Ute.
