A little more about the hosts:

Tom DeTone, 41, was born and raised in the tri-state area until his mid-teens, when his family moved to Arizona. At 19, he was introduced to the repo business after attempting to stop what he thought was an attempted car robbery. His quick reflexes and eye for justice immediately landed him the job as a “spotter,” and he has been working in the field on and off ever since. DeTone makes his home in Phoenix, Arizona.

Josh Lewis, 30, was raised in Reed City, Michigan. His first career venture was proudly serving in the United States Navy before going to earn a degree in Political Science from Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan. In 2003, he was introduced to the car repossessing business when he took a security guard job for a repo company; he soon was promoted to repo man. At his peak, Lewis was making $150 per car, and he has been addicted to the business ever since. Lewis currently resides in Los Angeles, CA.Repo Games airs Tuesdays at 11/10c on Spike.
