Loomis, Calif.- Jamie Susslin announces the launch of her first reality show as the host of ‘The Ultimate Sportsman’.
This 22-segment series is a competition amongst twelve contestants focused on hunting and fishing adventures across the United States. This reality series, airing Thurdsay’s at 7am PDT on the Versus Channel, includes a test of skills for men and women of varying ages. Competitors are often extremely experienced in some of the competitions but the fun and surprise comes for those that may be doing a specific type of sport for the first time. Jamie Susslin as the host and co-writer travels to some picturesque locations to guide the contestants and viewers through a variety of competitions.
Over the years, Jamie has been an active sportwoman traveling all over the world for incredible fishing and hunting opportunities. One of her more memorable ventures outside of the series was her appearance on three episodes of ‘Safari Hunter’s Journal ‘, where she first experienced hunting plains game in South Africa. The highlight (and adrenaline rush!) of that trip would be when Jamie and her fellow adventurers were charged by a two year old rhinoceros who was trying to protect his mother. She had just been darted with a sedative in order to obtain DNA that could later be used in prosecuting poachers. Jamie is just as passionate about conservation of habitat and wildlife as she is about hunting and fishing.
Jamie is multi-talented as a speaker at conferences and seminars. She has a passion and dedication to her sport and is available for speaking engagements, filming and appearances.
Larry Weishuhn, star of “Winchester World of Whitetail with Larry Weishuhn said “As someone who has been in the outdoor “business” for a long time, I’m here to tell you Jamie Susslin is the real deal. This lady knows how to hunt, in the truest sense and definition of the word. She is passionate and knowledgeable about the outdoors and hunting life, and all would do well to truly listen when she speaks!”
‘Jamie has a true passion for the outdoors coupled with the charm and personality that have endeared her to so many in the hunting industry’, stated Tim Gauthier show Producer/Director of Active Video Productions, Inc. ‘She has always loved a challenge so hosting the Ultimate Sportman is her next big adventure.’
