After five seasons as a quarterback in the NFL for the New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers, Jesse Palmer began a career as a game analyst, first with Fox Sports Net, and soon thereafter with ESPN, providing commentary for college football and NFL games. A few years later, Jesse added ABC studio analyst to his duties, joining longtime analyst John Saunders in providing pregame, halftime and postgame analysis for every ABC telecast college football game. Outside the sports arena, he was the host of Food Network’s Food Truck Face Off, and he has co-hosted Live with Kelly as well as The View, in addition to contributing on The Chew. In 2015, Jesse joined Good Morning America as a special contributor, focusing on big stories, news of the day and live events. Jesse currently resides in New York City with his French bulldog, Tuuli.
