Jill Wagner:
Although she now lives in Los Angeles, Jill Wagner is a small-town girl at heart. She was born in Winston-Salem, NC, where she was raised by her grandmother and father, a local tire shop owner. She attended North Carolina State University, where she graduated Sigma Cum Laude in Business. Today, she is best known for her sideline reporting on ABC’s Wipeout. Her diverse body of work includes a recurring role on MTV’s Teen Wolf, guest starring roles on shows like Bones and Monk and a stint as the Lincoln Mercury spokesperson. When not filming, Jill travels back home to North Carolina where her father and grandmother continue to be a driving force in her life. Jill is actively involved with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, a charitable cause which is near and dear to her heart, as both her cousin and a good friend were stricken with Leukemia at an early age.
