A native of Naperville, Illinois, Justin Walter is a Midwestern guy at heart whose passion for hosting began at a young age. In his early teens, Justin started hosting and producing full-scale game shows based off the popular reality TV series Survivor, The Amazing Race and The Mole. Justin has hosted and produced over 100 game shows and has turned his once hobby into an adventure company called Reality Rush.

Currently, Justin hosts Let’s Go LA!, an outdoor adventure show featuring the parks, beaches and recreational facilities of LA County and Get Out!, a travel and lifestyle show that highlights the best of Santa Monica from dining and fitness to shopping and cultural opportunities.
