Candace Kaye Bailey (born May 20, 1982) is an American actress and television personality best known as a co-host of the former television program Attack of the Show! on G4.

Early life[edit]

Bailey was born in Birmingham, Alabama and relocated with her family to the Pensacola, Florida area at age two.[1] At age 12, Bailey joined a New York City modeling company in the summer.[1] Bailey graduated from Gulf Breeze High School of Gulf Breeze, Florida in 2001 and attended Marymount Manhattan College in New York City.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Bailey is a former Junior Olympic gymnast.[4]

In 1999, Bailey at age 17 made her on-screen debut on The Sopranos episode "Boca" as character Deena Hauser. While attending Marymount Manhattan, Bailey got her first television presenting job on the Nickelodeon children's show U-Pick Live in 2002 and would continue on the show until 2005.[1][5][6] Bailey hosted an episode of Slime Time Live on Nickelodeon in 2003. In 2004, Bailey co-hosted a children-oriented Super Bowl XXXVIII pre-game show on Nickelodeon.[7]

In her first role as a regular character in a fictional TV series, Bailey played Skylar Stevens on the CBS series Jericho from 2006 to 2008.[8] In 2008, Bailey appeared in the music video of "Goodnight Goodnight" by Maroon 5.[9] After Jericho was cancelled, Bailey worked as a cocktail waitress and babysitter between acting jobs. Bailey said that the work made her more appreciative of her acting opportunities.[10]

Bailey returned to screen acting in a fifth season episode of Ghost Whisperer in 2010. On January 11, 2011, Bailey joined Kevin Pereira (who left the show on May 31, 2012) as the new co-host of Attack of the Show! and remained on the show until its final episode on January 23, 2013.[11][12]
