Candace Bailey Having a Blast as ‘Attack of the Show’ Girl

Beautiful “Attack of the Show!” host Candace Bailey groans when asked if she gets to keep any of the dazzling array of new tech toys featured on the popular live G4 show.  “I wish!  It would be nice to have multiple flat screens,” she notes.  But she’s having a blast anyway. “It’s fun.  I get to look at all the gadgets.”

Bailey kept busy with acting gigs after her stint as a Nickelodeon “U-Pick Live” host – with her regular role on the series “Jericho” and numerous guestings.  “And then I thought, ‘Why am I not hosting anymore?  I should try to get back into it.”  Her appetite is certainly being satisfied now, with the four-night-a-week, hour-long comedy and news show aimed at gamers, digital media and pop culture enthusiasts.  She’s been cohosting since January, 2011 along with Kevin Pereira and Sara Underwood.  She’d like to do more acting, but the time demands of “Show” are pretty constant; their next “dark” week off isn’t until August.  Bailey says they generally do a table-read of the day’s material at 12:30, go into hair and makeup at three o’clock and go live at 4 Pacific.

“But we get three day weekends every week,” she notes.  Another plus:  she likes her cast mates.  “Kevin is such a giving host.  He’s so funny.  I like to laugh and he’s always cracking me up.”

About Stacy Jenel Smith

I grew up in the San Fernando Valley when it was a kids' Shangri La in the 60s and we had Fabulous Eddie's miniature golf and trampolines on Ventura Boulevard. My big brother frequented The Third Eye psychedelic shop back in the day, but he wound up turning out anyway. Dad was an NBC video man who worked on "Laugh-In," Dean Martin's show, and specials by everyone from Sinatra to Fred Astaire. Mom was a first class home maker and PTA and GCA volunteer. They're still doing great. Anxious to get going in life, I quit college and jumped into journalism when I was still a teenager, and was writing for the New York Times syndicate and People magazine before turning 20. But that was a long time, many adventures, lots of traveling around the world and thousands of interviews ago. I go back to the very last days of hot type and getting to talk to Henry Fonda and Bette Davis, and Sammy Davis at the old Brown Derby...What a ride. That's in no small part thanks to my amazing writing partner, Marilyn Beck, one of the grand old-school Hollywood columnist stars -- a true star -- who knows how to do it right. I'm lucky, for sure. Now is fun, too. I love going out to events with my 17-year-old daughter (Jonas Brothers!). Seeing everything fresh through her eyes renews my excitement about the game. In-between I went back and finished school -- University of Redlands -- married, divorced, and at long last found my true love. My favorite things outside of the show business realm are being with my family, my faith and spiritual growth, learning new things (from doing Qigong to uploading stuff on Facebook), and running. See you on the trail.
