Kevin Elder Pereira (born December 28, 1982 in San Leandro, CA ) is an American game show host and TV personality.

Biography

While he was 14, Pereira hosted Pointless Audio under the pseudonym Captain Immy. The show featured many prank calls and was hosted on such gaming sites as Planet Quake and ShugaShack (now Shacknews); it later evolved into Pointless TV, and finally LickMySweaty.com. One of the projects featured on the latter site, a short film created for his video production class at Deer Valley High School, earned him three California Media Festival awards in 2001. A different film project was recognized in 2002. He studied film and television production with a scholarship to the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California for one semester.

After working as a network administrator at an Internet service provider for five years and also at a television network, he pursued a career at G4. He started as a production assistant in 2002 on the talk show G4tv.com, then moved on to Arena and Pulse and then quickly moved to another G4 show, The Screen Savers, in 2004. Pereira was a co-host of Attack of the Show!, G4's live tech info show, and was the last original cast member to leave. He co-hosted the show for a year with Sarah Lane, who left in 2006, followed by Olivia Munn, who left in 2010. In 2011 Candace Bailey joined Pereira as cohost. He hosted his last episode of Attack of the Show! on May 31, 2012 after it was announced on May 8, 2012 by G4 that his final broadcast would take place on that day. His final broadcast for the channel was their Electronic Entertainment Expo coverage, preceded by a month-long retrospective of highlights from the show. Pereira is also producing a show for SyFy titled Viral Video Showdown.

He formerly hosted the syndicated quiz show Let's Ask America until 2014, when MTV VJ Bill Bellamy took over. On October 4, 2012 Pereira launched his podcast Pointless on the Deathsquad podcast network, but is now doing his own podcast on supercreative.tv/ .

Pereira appeared as a co-host on the political webshow The Young Turks on February 4, 2013, alongside long-time co-host of the show Ana Kasparian.

From June 11, 2013 through June 13, 2013, Kevin co-anchored Microsoft's Xbox @ E3 Live streaming coverage on Xbox Live, reuniting him with former G4 personalities.

It was announced in September 2014 that Pereira would be hosting truTV's new show Hack My Life alongside Brooke Van Poppelen. The show's first season premiered on January 6, 2015.

On February 16, 2015, Kevin Pereira and his crew from SuperCreative launched a popular interactive gaming talk show on Twitch.tv called The Attack. He was initially the host of the show but quickly moved into a producer role once the show was established. The show's format is loosely based on that of Attack of the Show! and includes internet videos, comedy sketches, and game and gadget reviews. The channel has since grown to include several other shows.

On June 14, 2015, he hosted the Nintendo World Championships.
