Chuck Dukas is a native of Dedham, Massachusetts and is a graduate of Merrimack College. Ever since a young age Chuck has always been involved in arts and entertainment. From his high school days playing Mr. Mushnik in “Little shop of Horrors” or serving as a play by play announcer for his high school basketball to hosting a number of shows on his college television station. It wasn’t until a trip to The Price is Right in June of 2003 where Chuck decided this is the career path he wanted to take.
Chuck moved out to Los Angeles in the Fall of 2005 after appearing as a contestant on The Price is Right. After being on the show and playing a pricing game with his childhood icon Bob Barker, Chuck had expressed that it would be a dream to work on his favorite game show of all time. Thirteen months later Chuck found himself sharing his story with thousands of hopeful contestants while working on stage 33. His ability of hyping up contestants before the start of TV shows accompanied with his infectious personality should not come as a surprise to many that he has made a name for himself as the top audience warm-up in Hollywood. Chuck has opened for such shows as American Idol, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, Fuller House and many Disney and Nickelodeon projects.
Along with warming up TV audiences Chuck serves as a live event emcee and auctioneer having worked for some of the largest companies and corporations in America. For five consecutive years, Chuck has been the number one emcee and auctioneer from Gigmasters.com based on total bookings.
In 2018 Chuck was named host of Battle of The Chefs, a new live reality cooking competition show that is part of the Chef Life Network.
