Samantha. (On her most frighting moment during the filming of "Passport to China") I had a scary moment as I got into a pen with some pandas. The handler warned me to keep moving. They're adorable-looking, but pandas are bears, after all.
Samantha. What makes my job so incredible is that I literally get to have a fantasy life. I get to go to these different places and kind of take on an entirely different persona.
Samantha :(On where she would love to live and why) Berlin: I love cities. I love the chaos. Most cities experienced their golden age a few hundred to 2,000 years ago and we travel to them to experience their past. Berlin's importance is right now. The architecture and art that is happening there is more exciting than any other city in Europe. To be there for even a week is to experience a city coming into its own and making its mark for the future. I would love to live in a city where every day brought something exciting.
Samantha. While doing
a hike in Costa Rica down to a volcano, I fell and banged my knee. I couldn't walk well, and then I stupidly tried to do a 'Dukes of Hazzard' jump into a car, (see 'Seen in Costa Rica' episode), banged that knee again, and had a hard time walking for two days.
Samantha :(When asked if she could travel back in time to any period in history, when and where would it be) Turn of the century in New York City. New York is such an unbelievable city. I would love to go back in time to when it was just beginning to show its true greatness as a world-class town.
On February 8, 2010 the Travel Channel aired a special in Samantha's honor called Samantha Brown's 10th Anniversary Special to celebrate her ten years as a host.
Samantha made a special guest appearance on The Price is Right on April 9th 2007 to present a travel-themed showcase.
Samantha Brown is best friends with Nancy St. Alban, who played Michelle Bauer on CBS' Guiding Light.
