A Few Words About Brook Roberts
Brook Roberts has hosted THOUSANDS of fun filled hours of LIVE TV, starting at the age of 18 as a news reporter at the local CBS news affiliate in her hometown of Roseburg, Oregon. Her recent accomplishment of pitching, co-producing and starring in her own reality show, The Good Buy Girls on TLC was the result of years of hard work and dedication. This reality docu-series pulled back the curtain and showcased the inner-workings of a national home shopping network, and Brook was THRILLED when TLC bought 12 straight-to-series episodes.
The Amazing Race
Her First Big Break
Roberts received her first big break as a finalist in season 17 of CBS’ The Amazing Race. This led to guest appearances on The Early Show and Entertainment Tonight. Roberts and her teammate, Claire Champlin became an overnight sensation when their infamous “watermelon head shot” video was leaked on YouTube and was quickly picked up by everyone from CNN to E’s The Soup.
Covering breaking stories with professionalism & knowledge.
This former Miss Oregon covered the nightly news as lead Anchor at KPIC-TV, only to move onto the red carpet in Las Vegas. There she worked as the host of It’s Vegas Baby for the Las Vegas Television Network. Combining her passion for television and fashion, it was only natural for Brook to pursue a career in home shopping. Roberts found her niche instantly, selling genuine gemstone jewelry. She quickly immersed herself in the world of gemology by travelling to Thailand, a gemstone connoisseur’s paradise, where she hosted a documentary on the jewelry trade. No stranger to documentary work, Roberts has also produced and starred in several documentaries featuring everything from fish hatcheries in Panama to churches in Brazil. This gemstone boot camp proved successful, with Brook gaining certification from BOTH the Gemological Institute of America and the Diamond Council.

She began with Gems TV, moved to Jewelry Television and then to DSN Jewelry, presenting energetic programming to over 100-million homes on Dish, Direct TV and cable networks throughout the nation. At Gems TV, Roberts was chosen to be the network spokesperson, which included everything from covering New York Fashion Week, filming a mini-series at Gemstone tradeshows and working with Badgley Mischka on their first home shopping jewelry stint.
A true outdoor enthusiast at heart, Brook still found the time to work as a host and producer for the Reno-Tahoe Minute, an outdoor lifestyle segment while working at Gems TV.
