Chloe Wilde, BSc’11, recently became MuchMusic’s newest on-air personality after winning the network’s high-profile VJ Search.
Wilde was among 500 VJ aspirants who entered themselves into the contest on MuchMusic’s site, where viewers voted for their favourite candidates. The contestant pool was narrowed to 20 people, who then competed for the coveted position on a reality show.
Though she initially aspired to a career as a nurse – a path she’d like to revisit one day – Wilde expects her psychology degree to serve her well in her new job.
“We learned so much about human interaction and why people act the way they do,” she says. “We [the VJ Search contestants] were essentially 20 Canadians with very Type A personalities. So that can really lead to a lot of drama and tension.”
