Sarah Whitcomb Foss

Sarah Whitcomb Foss began exploring exciting clue locations in 2001 as an original member of the Jeopardy! Clue Crew; she now works behind the scenes as a producer for the show and its official podcast, Inside Jeopardy!

As a former news anchor and reporter, Sarah is always eager to put her journalism skills to use, seeking out intriguing locations and personalities to feature in Jeopardy! clues. 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, hiked through ancient Moai statues on Easter Island and has snowboarded, skydived and parasailed—all in the name of Jeopardy!

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 locations, making her one of a small group of people to have done polar plunges at both the North and South Poles.

When she’s not busy with Jeopardy!, Sarah enjoys traveling with her family. Her daughters, Taylor and Reagan seem to have already caught Mom’s travel bug. Sarah and her husband, Chris, also love cheering on their college alma mater, the University of Southern California.
