Samantha Brown is known as an American television host, most famous for her work on Travel Channel shows such as Great Hotels and Green Getaways. She was born on March 31, 1970, in Dallas, Texas, to Christopher D. Brown, owner of the Conproco Corporation, and Elsie Mae Brown, an administrative assistant at Albright College. When Samantha was still a child, her family moved to New Hampshire, where she attended Pinkerton Academy in Derry. During her high school years, she was passionate about the performing arts and participated in music and drama. She continued this passion at Chapman University and later at Syracuse University, where she majored in musical theater and attained a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Arts. Additionally, she took twelve years of voice lessons to complement her theater skills. One week after receiving her degree, Samantha moved to New York City to pursue a career as a television actress.
Samantha Brown and her husband, Kevin James O'Leary, a specialist in computer servers and the manager of technology for Insight Enterprises, got married in 2006 at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay by Reverend David R. Henry. They are the proud parents of two beautiful twin children, Ellis James and Elizabeth Mae, born in 2013.
Before beginning her career as a travel hostess, Samantha had taken off by doing several jobs related to advertising. Initially, she worked as the spokesperson for Century Cable under the name "Wendy Wire," and as the Super Mom in the HP Pavilion commercial called "Computer is Personal Again." She also served as a spokesperson for brands such as ECCO Shoes, Cedar Point Amusement Park, and was a performer in the comedy sketch group "Mouth." She worked in these roles for ten years. In 1999, with the producers' recommendation, she auditioned for the show "Great Vacation Homes" on The Travel Channel. The show's concept was to introduce viewers to different vacation destinations and hotels across the United States and the rest of the world. Her dream job almost didn't happen due to problems with her flight connections, but fortunately, things worked out in the end.
After a decade on television, Samantha has earned credits as a writer in the series Girls Meets Hawaii, co-executive producer in Samantha Brown's Inside the Suitcase, a guest on the 2011 Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations Holiday Special, and a host in the Walt Disney World Holidays in 2006. Samantha has been the face of beloved travelling series such as Great Hotels, Passport to Europe, Travel Hacks, and Passport to Latin America. Other shows she has hosted include Great Cruises: Freedom of the Seas with Samantha Brown and Samantha Brown's First Cruise, a 12-night Mediterranean Venice cruise aboard the Brilliance of the Seas. Samantha also hosted the travel game show Samantha Brown's Cash Attack. She has also appeared in Passport to Green Getaways, Passport to China, Great Weekends, and Samantha Brown's Asia. Her job has taken her almost everywhere in the world; she has visited over 220 cities in 49 different countries. In 2011, Samantha launched a luggage line on the Home Shopping Network, which quickly became a "customer pick". Her signature line includes classic luggage sets, wine purses, RFID clutch wallets, and power bank chargers for smartphones.
Samantha Brown's Places to Love, her newest show, premiered in 2018 on PBS. The first season features thirteen different locations. Samantha says the show is an attempt to "understand that when we're a part of that cultural movement, everyone wants to be a part of when they travel, go where the locals go, do what the locals do; what that means is we want to be a part of the effort." She says the show is about "really understanding the effort that goes into creating the experiences that we as travelers get to be a part of, whether it's the effort to create a meal that you eat at a restaurant, a piece of music you hear at a concert, or a piece of art." Regarding traveling, Samantha says this: "What I love most about travel is feeling like a fish out of water. I love being the person in the room who looks and sounds like no one else. The challenge of seeing where I fit in and how I can make a connection with people who are completely different than me is thrilling."
Samantha maintains an official blog that includes recommendations regarding travel to various regions of the world. She has already highlighted restaurants and hotels, provided lists with practical and helpful advice for travelers about food, housing, and vacation planning, and discussed other exciting subjects. Samantha is also the author of several books, including Samantha Brown's Inside the Suitcase (2010), The Trip: 2014 (2014), and Girl Meets Hawaii (2000).
