Meet Kylee, the co-host of the new family centered game show, Just Like Mom and Dad
The premiere of Just Like Mom and Dad is right around the corner (psst! It airs on Monday!), and we're excited to introduce you to one of the game show co-hosts, Kylee!
BYUtv: Explain the premise of the show. How does it work? How do you win? What do you win?
Kylee: Just Like Mom And Dad is a show about families! Kids and their parents try to see how well they know each other by trying to match the answer each other previously gave. There are two rounds of questions worth a possible 50 points and then everyone’s favorite round, the bakeoff, worth 50 points. The pair with the most points at the end of game play gets to spin the prize wheel where they can win incredible prizes like free ice cream for a year, 200 movies for the whole family or an all inclusive vacation! There are 11 prizes in total and all of them are amazing!
BYUtv: What about this show made you want to be a part of it?
Kylee: I absolutely love working with kids! They are so spontaneous and you never know what they are going to say. I also thought it was a great opportunity to work with Sandy, my husband. It’s another adventure for the two of us. And game shows are a big part of our lives. We LOVE them!
BYUtv: What was your favorite episode/moment to film?
Kylee: I think the bake off is my favorite part of every show. Seeing the kids faces light up when we tell them its time to bake is priceless. I know what they have in store, but their parents have no idea what they’re getting into!
BYUtv: How is it working with your spouse?
Kylee: Sandy is the funniest most talented person I know so I’m in good hands and have an incredible wingman who’s got my back the whole time. He makes me want to be better and raise my game. I’ve worked in the TV industry for a long time and I can honestly say he’s the kindest person I’ve ever worked with. Not just to me, but to every member of the production. It’s amazing to see.
BYUtv: Give us five facts about you for BYUtv fans to get to know you more.
Kylee: I am also a singer and piano player and graduated university with a BMus vocal performance degree. I am a huge musical theatre nerd and my favorite role I’ve ever played was Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. I love interior design and am always redecorating. I am an incredible cook! I can make a beautiful meal out of basically nothing. I am a terrible baker! Like, absolutely terrible!
BYUtv: What’s something about your spouse that we should know about?
Kylee: Well, besides the fact that he can’t match a shirt with a pair of pants and make an outfit to save his life, he’s about as perfect as they come. Whether it’s with his friends on the football field or improvising to perfection on stage in front of hundreds of people, there’s something magical about Sandy. Everyone who knows him knows it and I can’t wait for you all to meet him.
