Alison Sweeney

Alison Sweeney (born September 19, 1976) is an American soap opera actress born in Los Angeles, California.

Alison is best known for her portrayal of Samantha "Sami" Gene Brady on Days of Our Lives. In this role, she has earned four Soap Opera Digest Awards and a Fan Voted Daytime Emmy Award.

She has been on Days of Our Lives since January 22, 1993. A teenage actress on the soap opera, she took fellow Days of Our Lives star Bryan Dattilo to her high school prom.

Her television debut was at age 5 in a Kodak advertisement.

In the 1990s, Sweeney struggled with her weight. She eventually was a size 12, not obese by medical standards, but still quite larger than her TV peers. She documented all the tabloid talk and personal anguish in her 2004 memoir, All The Days of My Life (So Far).

In 2002, she appeared on a celebrity episode of the NBC reality TV show Fear Factor. Her appearance was notable for her panic at being in a "coffin" with large worms, cockroaches and snakes.

On February 25, 2005, Sweeney gave birth to a son, Benjamin Edward Sanov.

Sweeney currently lives in L.A. with husband David Sanov, a California highway patrolman, who once appeared on Days of Our Lives in the role of a police officer.

She will host the 4th season of The Biggest Loser, replacing Caroline Rhea.
