When Kristin Adams decides to do something, you better watch out, because it gets done – and it gets done well. Of course, it’s no surprise to find that Kristin feels at home on a stage, talking, performing and interacting with crowds, but it’s her enthusiasm, hard work, and joyful attitude that truly make this native Texan shine so brightly.
It was during her sophomore year at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas that Kristin decided to give cheerleading a try. Her sheer determination scored her a stint as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader – part of their elite show group– a job that took her all over the world on USO tours. And before graduating cum laude, friends suggested she audition for a new show on Fox called “American Idol,” and suddenly she found herself on television screens all over the country singing her way to the top 30.
After the show, Kristin returned to TCU, but one day after class, picked up the phone and called Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe, to pitch herself as a co-host and special correspondent for the second season of the show. And that’s how she went from her dorm room to a room at the Ritz Carlton, kicking off a successful hosting career.
Though she often travels the world on assignments representing global brands like Samsung and AT&T, Kristin carries her hometown in her heart, and remains true to the beliefs instilled in her. It’s her natural curiosity, work ethic, and respect for people from all walks of life that serve her well no matter what she puts her mind to. From interviews with A-list celebrities such as Conan O’Brien, Will Smith and countless others, red carpet events, news reporting, acting roles, her long-term gig on G4TV’s X-Play and host of the videogame show “Cheat,” to hanging with Elmo on Sesame Street—even Tae Kwon Do, where she earned a black belt, Kristin is always the ultimate professional and never gives less than 100%.
Over the past three years, Kristin has entered the most rewarding and fulfilling stage of her life – mom to Harper and Holt. She and her husband Danny, an actor and performer, both agree that the blessings bestowed upon them by being parents brings them joy beyond measure. Kristin loves teaching and modeling to her kids that with faith and determination, they can do anything they put their mind to!
