Dina Eastwood was a popular news anchor in Central California when Peter Funt asked her to join him as co-host for the PAX Network version of Candid Camera.

At the time Dina was married to one of America's most renowned film stars, Clint Eastwood. She often found herself at Clint's side — on a movie set, at The White House, or at a golf tournament. She also continued to contribute news reporting to station KSBW-TV. It was all part of a very hectic life for the Fremont, California native.

Dina has also hosted a show on education and become a contributing editor for "Golf Digest Woman" magazine. She dedicates much of her time to the two non-profit boards on which she sits: The Charitable Council and The Leon and Sylvia Panetta Institute for Public Policy.

As to her role on Candid Camera, Dina says: "I was thrilled to be a part of the Candid Camera family. I've always loved the show and I often wondered, 'will they ever catch me?' I never dreamed of thinking, 'will they ever hire me?'

"Peter and I believe that our backgrounds in journalism are useful on Candid Camera. In both professions we study people and figure out what makes them tick. Of course newscasters don't have to worry much about smiling, but on Candid Camera it's the single most important part of the job."

Now divorced from Clint, Dina still lives on the Monterey Peninsula in Pebble Beach, California.
