An appealing presence on American television, Jill Wagner was the enthusiastic co-host of the ABC game show "Wipeout" (2008- ) as well as a guest player in numerous episodic series and the occasional feature film. She relocated from her native North Carolina to California to pursue a modeling career in 2001, but instead broke into television as one of Ashton Kutcher's pranking cohorts on "Punk'd" (MTV 2003-07). Guest roles on television series, as well as a long-running ad campaign for Mercury automobiles led to her first assignment as a series regular on the action-fantasy program "Blade: The Series" (Spike 2006). Following its swift demise, Wagner joined "Wipeout," an Americanized version of grueling Japanese obstacle course game shows which became one of the network's most popular programs. She departed "Wipeout" in 2011 to take a recurring role on MTV's "Teen Wolf" (2011- ), but returned to her duties on the program in 2013 while also dividing her time between acting assignments. Wagner's successful track record of popular series minted her as an up-and-coming talent in a variety of media showcases.
