and been featured in an array of popular talk, reality competition, and game shows, including the FOX hit "The Moment of Truth." He also has hosted home improvement competitions "The Mansion" and "House Rules," knowledge quiz shows "Test the Nation" and "Russian Roulette," and won "The Weakest Link," as a contestant playing for charity. He also hosted the relationship challenge "Temptation Island."

Realizing a long-held ambition to produce, Walberg created and produced "Sunday Dinner," the first original series for the Odyssey Network, with long-time friend and television personality Mark DeCarlo ("Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Jimmy Neutron"). Walberg currently hosts the California state lottery program Make Me a Millionaire.

Walberg admits to being a long-time "Antiques Roadshow" fan who watches with his family. "With my 20-year career in game and quiz shows," he said, "I know 'Antiques Roadshow' has a winning formula: the excitement and challenge of finding out how much something is worth gets viewers to tune in, and along the way they get hooked by all the incredibly interesting history."

In addition to his successful television career, Walberg believes strongly in devoting time to create opportunities for young people. Currently he is on the board of directors of Goodwill of Southern California. He's proud to be part of an organization that is instrumental in providing hope and new futures for people who need help.

He also is very involved with The Young Americans, a musical performance youth group that tours the world offering music workshops in underserved schools. He has completed production on a feature-length documentary about The Young Americans' work. Says Walberg, "The personal transformation that happens to people when they are given the ability to express themselves through the arts, specifically music and dance, is inspiring."

Walberg and actress-wife Robbi Morgan Walberg make their home in Los Angeles, where they are busy keeping up with 19-year-old college student son and 15-year-old daughter Goldie's ballet performances.
