Mitre 10 Mega Jack Of All Trades - Saturday 9 June

Mitre 10 Mega Jack Of All Trades Saturday 9 June, 5pm

The best Kiwi trades people battle it out for the title of New Zealand’s Best All-Round Tradie in the inaugural ‘Mitre 10 Mega Jack Of All Trades’ competition (today at 5pm on TV ONE).

From more than 100 entries and two tightly contested regional finals, New Zealand’s top eight tradies have been discovered and will compete in a showdown on the ‘Mitre 10 Mega Jack Of All Trades’ series.
The eight finalists will be racing each other and the clock to determine who has the best all-round trade skills in a series of challenges; from carpentry to brick laying, painting to tiling, their physical ability with tools, workmanship and safety, to their organisational efficiency – even their ute handling will be put to the test – in what is set to become the tradie Olympics.

‘Mitre 10 Mega Jack Of All Trades’ is presented by Wayne Bowden, Pio Terei and Jade Collins. The eight finalists include: Michael Webster from Whitby, an electrician by trade; designer Kirsten Drabble from Lower Hutt; bricklayer John ‘Horse’ McLeod from New Plymouth; and builders Warwick Beckett from Taradale; Scott Evans from New Brighton; James Williamson from Timaru; Dave McClean from Porirua; and Daniel Saunders from Rolleston.

The series premieres with a one-hour special, then half-hour episodes screen weekly on Saturdays at 5pm on TV ONE. The action kicks off introducing the finalists who made it through the gruelling qualifiers, then shows the first head-to-head battle between Timaru builder, James Williamson, and Porirua builder, Dave McClean – only one will go through to the final four.

Subsequent episodes will see the following pairs battle for a place in the final four: Michael Webster and John ‘Horse’ McLeod; Kirsten Drabble, the only female finalist and Warwick Beckett; and the competition’s youngest contestant, Scott Evans and Cantabrian builder Daniel Saunders.
