As of 2020, Rutledge is living in his home state of Georgia, and ended up marrying the love of his life, Rachel Wood. Together, they have three relatively young daughters, according to Heavy, and although he frequently posts pictures of his family to social media, they tend to keep most of their family life private. But they seem like an incredibly happy family of five, nonetheless.
Rutledge’s return to the South was relatively unsurprising, as he’s a diehard Southern foodie. In fact, in 2017, according to IMDB, he snagged his own show on the Food Network called Super Southern Eats, in which he embarks on road trips through the Southern U.S. alongside renowned Southern culinary expert, Damaris Phillips.
Rutledge Wood certainly has an eclectic background, with a tremendous passion for cars, an incredible on-camera personality, and a knack for Southern cooking. With his undeniably enthusiastic demeanor, it’s no surprise he was able to snag the position for Netflix’s new game show host — it’s safe to say we’re looking forward to binging The Floor Is Lava all weekend long.
