"Almost a decade ago, I could hardly believe I had landed my dream job. Today, I still have to pinch myself, as I celebrate my 10th season with JEOPARDY!. I must be the luckiest girl in the world," says the Clue Crew's Kelly Miyahara.
In the past nine years as part of the Clue Crew, Kelly has traveled the world with Alex Trebek, and had the honor of participating in his two most recent USO Tours to Japan and Europe.
"Growing up, my mom's favorite TV show was JEOPARDY!, but I never dreamed that one day I'd join Alex Trebek to be a part of it."
After graduating from the School of Business at the University of Washington, Kelly sought adventure overseas. She's backpacked on a budget, worked as an English teacher, a French waitress, and an au pair, while discovering her love for world culture, language and travel.
A "regular day's work" for Kelly might involve carefully climbing onto the hood of a South African safari vehicle to film with a pride of lions, speaking from behind the United Nations General Assembly podium, or "flying a hull" with America's Cup Champions Team Oracle USA, and she finds all of it exhilarating.
"One of the most wonderful trips with the Clue Crew was to the Galapagos islands, for our 25th Anniversary. Talk about pure magic!" Kelly says. "I'm so grateful to do what I love and love what I do."
Aside from JEOPARDY!, Kelly is a proud IRONMAN triathlete, a passionate advocate for charitable causes, and loves spending time with loved ones. She's generally up for anything at least once, considers "food" one of her hobbies, and is especially thrilled for her newest venture as the announcer for Crackle's "Sports JEOPARDY!".
