Jon Montgomery

TV host, Olympic medalist

“What does Canada mean to you? On September 10th grab your phone or your camera and film what matters most.”

Jon Montgomery’s life has been a whirlwind since his Olympic win in ‘Skeleton’; his big-time podium moment to get the gold medal, and his now-famous victory walk through Whistler Village. But Jon’s about more than just the frosty, golden beer that gave him instant folk-hero status with so many people from coast-to-coast-to-coast. From an appearance on Oprah, to the overwhelming homecoming in Russell, Manitoba and a presentation at the JUNO Awards, where he auctioned off teen-idol Justin Bieber’s cell number on the streets of St. John’s, Jon has been sharing his Olympic success and national pride with as many Canadians as possible. Today, as the host of The Amazing Race Canada, he’s been across the country and all over the world sharing his insights on what makes Canada great on the top television show in the country – show that won him the 2016 Canadian Screen Award for Best Host of a Reality TV Series. In 2016, Jon added another first to his growing resume as the co-host of the JUNO Awards with eight-time recipient Jann Arden.
