"I can't believe this marks my ninth season with JEOPARDY!. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," says Kelly Miyahara.
Over the past eight seasons, 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 part of it."
Kelly has experienced life on both the West and East coasts in California and Virginia, in addition to life abroad. After graduating from the School of Business at the University of Washington, Kelly sought adventure overseas. She backpacked through Europe, worked as a French waitress, nanny, and English teacher 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 thrilling.
"It's truly my dream job," Kelly says. "It's perfect blend of education, travel and entertainment, all of which I'm passionate about."
Aside from JEOPARDY!, Kelly is an IRONMAN triathlete, an advocate for charitable causes, and loves spending free time with her friends and family.
