Sarah Whitcomb Foss

Sarah Whitcomb Foss began exploring exciting clue locations in 2001 as an original member of the Jeopardy! Clue Crew. Since then, her Jeopardy! travels have taken her to 37 countries and all seven continents.

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 hiked through ancient Moai statues on Easter Island, 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 locations, making her one of a small group of people to have done polar plunges at both the North and South Poles.

I love hearing from viewers that a clue one of us delivered from a specific destination made someone decide to travel there!

When she’s not busy exploring the globe for Jeopardy!, Sarah enjoys traveling with her family. Her daughters, Taylor, 7, and Reagan, 2, seem to have already caught Mom’s travel bug and have flown on more than 150 airplanes. Sarah and her husband, Chris, also love cheering on their college alma mater, the University of Southern California.
