31 Aug 2022
Emmy Award-Winning Television Host, Journalist and APB speaker Samantha Harris was recently named host of Game Show Network's wordplay game show, Tug Of Words. This is the second season of the popular show, which is scheduled to return this fall.
From the producing team behind Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, Tug of Words is a fast-paced game where two teams compete to answer word clue questions correctly and pull the flag on the “tug of war rope” to their side. It is produced by Embassy Row, LLC for Game Show Network.
Harris is most known to viewers as the co-host of Dancing with the Stars for eight seasons and weekend co-anchor for Entertainment Tonight. An engaging and experienced host, Harris has also hosted FOX’s The Next Joe Millionaire, Gordon Ramsay’s Culinary Genius, The Insider, E! News, and Extra. Additionally, she has appeared as a guest host on Access Hollywood Live, The View, Daily Blast Live, Hollywood Today Live, Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, and Good Morning America. Harris co-hosted the official 80th Academy Awards and Critics’ Choice Awards red carpet shows. And in 2009, she made her Broadway debut starring as Roxie Hart in the musical “Chicago.”
In addition to her success in television, Harris is also a bestselling author, and a certified health coach and fitness trainer. In 2014, Harris was diagnosed with stage II invasive breast cancer at age 40. Her diagnosis inspired a quest for answers about how to improve overall health, prevent chronic diseases and understand their underlying causes. Harris’ research resulted in the Amazon best-selling book, Your Healthiest Healthy: 8 Easy Ways to Take Control, Help Prevent and Fight Cancer, and Live a Longer, Cleaner, Happier Life, which translates comprehensive, research-backed knowledge into an easy-to-follow action plan for maximizing health. Harris now lives cancer free with her husband and two daughters and continues to support cancer research by serving as an ambassador for the Susan G. Komen Foundation and supporting other organizations, including serving as a National Ambassador for the American Cancer Society and an Entertainment Council member for Feeding America.
Her newest initiative, YOUR HEALTHIEST HEALTHY: COMMUNITY, is a subscription-based membership filled with content on a weekly basis to help transform anyone to become their most vibrant, healthy self. It includes live workouts with Harris, as well as live coaching on a variety of health topics.
With the success of Your Healthiest Healthy, Harris has become the go-to guru for living a healthy and clean life.
