Fallbrook’s rolling hills have a long history of providing a quiet, rural sanctuary for Hollywood actors, directors, and personalities. One of Fallbrook’s most colorful celebrity families these days is Todd Howard, his wife, Randye, and 16-year old son, Leo.
Todd and Randye star on and produce the reality show “World’s Worst Tenants” on Spike TV, with partner Rick Moore. The show recently finished its second season.
Leo is a Disney favorite with many film credits including Conan the Barbarian (playing young Conan), two G.I. Joe movies, a recurring role in “Shake it Up,” and an ongoing role on “Kickin’ It.” Leo, a martial arts black belt, has won multiple world championships in his age category.
The perfect foil for this family’s busy Hollywood work life: Fallbrook.
“I really enjoy the small town life and feeling of community in Fallbrook,” Todd said. After growing up in South Carolina, it was his service (1983-87) in the Marine Corps that introduced him to the Fallbrook area. When he finished his military service, Todd went in to the fitness industry and owned nutrition stores. With his finely tuned, chiseled physique, he modeled for Honda ad programs and acted in commercials and videos.
In 1993, he married Randye and began purchasing investment properties with Rick Moore. They now own over 100 rental properties.
Continuing to be an advocate of healthy eating and exercise, Todd’s physical strength and endurance enabled him to manage the investment properties easily, including the occasional but necessary tenant eviction
