“More than a decade ago, I could hardly believe I had landed my dream job. Today, I still have to pinch myself, as I celebrate my 12th season with JEOPARDY!. I must be the luckiest girl in the world,” says the Clue Crew’s Kelly Miyahara.

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.

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.”

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.


"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."

Aside from JEOPARDY!, Kelly is thrilled to bring her love for sports into the mix, as she heads into her third season as the on-camera announcer on Crackle’s “Sports Jeopardy!” She is an IRONMAN triathlete who loves sweating out a new physical challenge as much as she enjoys beach bumming somewhere tropical. Kelly is a passionate advocate for charitable causes, a family girl who loves spending time with loved ones and considers “food” one of her favorite hobbies. 

Kelly is excited to start Season 33 at a special time in her life: she married her husband, Nestor, in July 2016, and the two are thrilled to welcome a precious new addition to their family in December.
