Marsh Mokhtari from "Extreme Chef" is the host of the Food Network reality series.

Born in the UK, Marsh Mokhtari, a seasoned world traveler, has lived on four continents. His globetrotting started at an early age when he spent his first six years in Iran, and then later moved to England, where he ultimately earned a degree in medical physics from the University of Newcastle. While there, he played American football for the UK national team and rugby for the Newcastle Falcons.

He went on to enjoy a successful career in executive search in London. While on sabbatical in Australia, he had a fortuitous encounter with a film crew and found his true calling. The lure of acting, adventure and travel took Marsh to Bolivia where he hosted "Death Road," a one-hour special for History Channel that garnered him instant credibility and notoriety. The National Geographic Channel saw the potential and commissioned a series of specials, "Perilous Journeys," featuring Marsh. Marsh was guest star on numerous TV shows and recently completed shooting an independent feature, "Carjack."
