Kaiser “Kai” Johnson Host

Actor/writer Johnson rediscovered the Faith while earning BFA in acting from the University of Minnesota in Duluth. In Los Angeles, he’s done sketch comedy and appeared in such TV shows as “Vampire Diaries” and “Sleepy Hollow,” along with roles in films and online series. An elite obstacle racer, he didn’t quite make it onto television for NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior,” but he did appear on screen in, and come within a whisker of winning, the premiere episode of NBC’s “Spartan Ultimate Team Challenge.”


Elizabeth “Libby” Slater Host

An actress, producer and writer, Slater earned a Bachelor’s degree in theater and dance from Minnesota State University at Mankato, and a Masters degree in film production from Saint John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, California. Also a talented singer and dancer, Slater has completed a Spartan Race, and uses the pain from that – along with large helpings of coffee and prayer – to help her get over missing Minnesota.
