Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although he'll forever be best known as a gold medal-winning figure skater, Scott Hamilton has also made many television appearances over the years as everything from a commentator to a cartoon voiceover artist to contestant on "Celebrity Apprentice." Hamilton first rose to prominence as an extremely talented ice skater, winning four consecutive U.S. Championships and World Championships, and a gold medal in the 1984 Winter Olympics. Afterwards, Hamilton became a skating commentator for CBS beginning in 1985, and continuing for years afterwards, and hosted such skating-related shows as 2006's "Skating with Celebrities." Hamilton received a Daytime Emmy nomination in 2005 for his 2004 TV special, "An Evening with Scott Hamilton & Friends," and did voiceover work on the animated hit "King of the Hill." In 2009, Hamilton landed possibly his best-known non-skating television spot, on "Celebrity Apprentice," although he would be "fired" from the show on only the second episode of the season.
