The Founders

Pete Berg

Pete grew up in the small town of Owego, NY, and graduated with a degree in Television-Radio from the Park School of Communications at Ithaca College.

Pete produced his first Reality TV inspired event in eleventh grade, when he put on a Survivor weekend on Susquehanna River’s Hiawatha Island, for his Venturing crew. In high school, Pete ran several more events, based on The Mole, The Amazing Race, as well as elaborate games of his own creation.

Pete went on to study Television & Radio at Ithaca College, where he specialized in documentary and non-fiction television production. At Ithaca, Pete produced a highly-acclaimed version of The Amazing Race for his college TV station. Pete coordinated a crew of 70 and edited over 200 hours of footage to create The Race and The Race 2, which were seen by over 30,000 viewers and received quite a bit of press.

Pete moved to Los Angeles in 2007 to work in the television industry, and co-founded Reality Rush later that year.

Pete has always had a thirst for adventure. An avid traveler, he has visited 48 of the 50 U.S. states, traveled throughout North America and Africa, and spent 6 months backpacking through Asia in 2008 — traveling from Japan all the way to India, paying visits to the Beijing Olympics, Mount Everest, and trekking in the Himalayas along the way. As an Eagle Scout, Pete spent his childhood camping and trekking all over the United States.

Justin Walter

Justin Walter is originally from Naperville, Illinois and earned degrees in Political Science and Philosophy from Boston College. Ever since watching the first episode of Survivor, Justin has been a huge fan of Reality TV competition shows. Justin took his love for these shows to a new level when he hosted and produced his first full-scale competition based on Survivor for his family in 2002. The following year, Justin produced his first game based on The Mole and realized his true passion for creating these types of events.

Since then, Justin has hosted, produced, and participated in over 35 competitions based on TV’s Survivor, The Amazing Race, The Mole, and Big Brother. Justin’s favorite part about running these events is using his background in leadership training to bring together family, friends, co-workers, and strangers to create long-lasting memories through living out their very own Reality TV adventure!

In addition to organizing these games, Justin has always been an avid adventure-seeker himself with a passion for travel and meeting new people. He has lived all over the U.S. including Chicago, Boston, NYC, and LA as well as in Sydney, Australia where he backpacked the South Pacific pursuing thrill after thrill including bungee-jumping, skydiving, hang-gliding, caving, and rappelling waterfalls.

Justin moved to Los Angeles in 2007 and had always dreamed of turning his hobby of running games into a business. He is truly thrilled and ecstatic that his dream is now his reality!
