Named Christmas by her evangelical father, Chrissy is also known for her sweet demeanor and snorting laugh. This ditzy blonde is always lovable with her heart of gold and naiveté. Chrissy, with her trademark ponytails, can be a smarter cookie than she lets others believe. She works as a secretary and sometimes matches Jack with her own source of inexplicable logic.
One of America’s most popular personalities, Suzanne Somers has achieved extraordinary success in a variety of creative arenas.

Growing up in San Bruno, California, Suzanne Somers dreamed of a career in show business. She landed her first big break as the mysterious blonde driving the white Thunderbird in American Graffiti.

She is known around the world for her role as the ditzy yet loveable Chrissy Snow.
