Sarah Whitcomb Foss
Sarah began exploring exciting clue locations in 2001 as an original member of the JEOPARDY! Clue Crew. Since then, Sarah's JEOPARDY! travels have taken her to 32 countries on all seven continents.
"It's always interesting to hear from fans about which clues have been their favorite," says Sarah. "The best part is finding out that a clue one of us delivered from a specific destination made someone decide to travel there!"
As a former news anchor and reporter, Sarah is always eager to put her journalism skills to use, seeking out intriguing locations for the Clue Crew to visit. She has proven over the years that she is willing to journey to the ends of the earth for her job: Sarah has flown over Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano, been catapulted off a Navy aircraft carrier in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, gone scuba diving with sharks, ridden aboard the famous Orient Express, and has snowboarded, skydived and parasailed—all in the name of the Clue Crew.
Two of her favorite trips with the Clue Crew were to the Arctic and Antarctica, where she recorded clues about global warming and its impact on wildlife in the polar regions. Determined not to miss out on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, Sarah decided to jump (quickly) into the water at both destinations.
"I love being able to feature clues that provide a unique look into the world around us," she says. "How many people can say they've done a polar plunge near both the North and South Poles? Despite the cold, I knew I had to do it!"
When she's not busy exploring the globe for JEOPARDY!, Sarah enjoys traveling with her family. Her daughter, Taylor, is just over one year old and has already visited ten states. Sarah and her husband, Chris, also love cheering on their college alma mater, the University of Southern California.
