Kristin Nicole Adams (born August 17, 1981 in Plano, Texas), née Holt, is a television personality and entertainment news correspondent. Between 2005 and 2008, Kristin served as the second host of G4's Cheat!, a television show dedicated to video game cheats and strategies. In 2008, Cheat! segments were incorporated into G4's X-Play, where Kristen became as a correspondent and occasional host throughout the remainder of the series. She also substituted hosting roles for the network's other shows and specials, as needed. She is currently hosting poker night on GSN and Nissan GT Academy on Speed. On January 1, 2010, Adams became the new co-host of the Character Fantasy film showcase on the USA Network.[1] Adams announced via Twitter on 10/22/12 that she was going to be a new co-host/correspondent on the TV show Real Music Live on NBC starting on 12/22/12.[2]

Career[edit]

She was an American Idol semi-finalist during its first season. She auditioned in Dallas and her audition was memorable because, in her rush to embrace Paula after being told that she had made the Hollywood rounds, she fell and slipped under the judges table. In the second season of American Idol, she was hired by FOX to replace Brian Dunkleman as co-host; however, on premiere night, the producers edited most of her footage out of the show, and she was later credited as correspondent for the show instead.[3]

She has also worked as a morning radio co-host in Dallas on KRBV (now KJKK), the host of Hasbro's DVD game Shout About Television, a party game similar to Shout About Movies, and as a host on the Starz network. She also worked with V-Cast on Verizon Wireless phones.[4] In addition, she appeared in a minor role as a reporter on a 2008 episode of the television series Dirty Sexy Money, and is reportedly scheduled to appear in a minor role in the upcoming film Rock Slyde.[5] She was formerly the vocalist of the band Stranger Days, having sung for the group from 2004-2007.[6][7]

She appeared as a covergirl for an issue of Stuff magazine.[8]

In 2009 she appeared as a correspondent on the fictional news network, "Santa News Network" broadcasts on AT&T's "Santa Tracker" cable channel.

She also hosts "AT&T U-verse Buzz" for AT&T U-verse TV customers.

Personal life[edit]

She is a Texas Christian University graduate. While at TCU she became a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader[9] and made the elite 12-person team.[10]

On October 24, 2008, Holt married Daniel Adams.[11][12] and November 29, 2010, Adams gave birth to their first child, Harper, and on October 31, 2013 gave birth to their second child, Holt.[13]
