Kristin Holt Adams first burst on the scene when she sang her way to the top 30 finalists in the first season of Fox’s “American Idol.” She was then asked to return as the co-host and special correspondent for the second season of the show, helping her launch a successful hosting career.
But she’s more than just a girl that can carry a tune – She made a name for herself in videogame culture as the host of G4TV’s show “Cheat.” For over 4 years she’s been helping gamers unlock the secrets of cheat codes for the hottest video games. When she’s not frantically mashing the buttons of a console controller, she’s delivering daily gaming and tech news on the number one source for video game news and reviews: “X-Play.” You can also find her serving up all the news you need to know in The Feed on “Attack of the Show.”
The G4 network isn’t the only place you’ll find Kristin hosting. In 2007, Kristin joined the Starz! Movie Channel family as the host of “Starz! Movie News.” Have you flown American Airlines lately? From 2005 until 2008 Kristin was featured on every plane as the host of the in-flight entertainment show “Screenlife Presents.” Thousands of people passed those long hours in the sky watching her host the interactive trivia show featuring the DVD game “Scene It.”
Despite all of her success in Tinseltown, Kristin will certainly never forget her roots – she began her career in her native state of Texas as the morning show co-host of one of Dallas’ top radio stations: WILD 100.3. While cutting her teeth at WILD, she finished her Bachelor of Science Degree in Political Science at Texas Christian University – and in 2000-2001 Kristin traveled the globe with the world famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders as a featured dancer and singer entertaining U.S. Troops in over 10 countries on USO tours.
