Hampton Woman To Be On TV's "Canada's Worst Driver"

A Hampton woman is part of the new season of "Canada's Worst Driver".

She was nominated by her husband and after a test drive with the show's producers, she made the cut.
Jamie Giberson tells CHSJ News she's been a nervous driver since she got her license.

She says she always wanted to stick close to home and when she did venture out and drive in Saint John she was in accident that was entirely her fault.

Giberson says she had a great time on the show and says the challeges are very difficult.

The new season debuts Monday night at 11 on Discovery Channel.
