Jeff Thisted was born in Maine and raised in Colorado Springs, CO. He is a self-admitted “Car-Guy” and always wanted to be “America’s favorite television game-show host.” So upon graduating from Colorado State University with a Radio and Television-emphasized Communications degree, he moved out to Los Angeles to pursue his dream.
For seven years Jeff worked as the production coordinator on “The Price is Right,” the longest running game-show in television history. He was delighted to be able to tell Bob Barker about landing his own hosting gig. Barker happily gave his blessing and good wishes for a long and successful hosting career.
Jeff is known as the only male host of GSN’s Playmania Block of programming which was broadcast live. He hosted game-shows “Quiznation” and “100 Winners,” giving away thousands of dollars in the process.
Jeff’s reviewed cars for AutoTrader.com and Wheels-TV driving the likes of Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche and more.
Lately he’s been lucky enough to showcase his passion for cars on “Rods ‘n Wheels,” the hit show on Discovery channel & Velocity.
If you're lucky you may be able to catch him at your local car show.
Jeff currently resides in Los Angeles and enjoys water-skiing, skateboarding, mountain biking and his 55 Chevy.
