Andromeda Dunker has mastered the art of not being seen. The narrator of the reality series House Hunters, Dunker has one of the most recognizable voices in reality TV. And while the buyers and sellers may change, the narrator remains the same. Andromeda took over the reality series in 2009 and has been associated with the show ever since. In her years as a host, Andromeda has voiced over 1,835 episodes and is still going strong. Not only has Andromeda lent her voice in the regular series, but she has also been actively involved in several spinoffs. In this article, we take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Andromeda Dunker.
Andromeda Dunker was born on the mother of August in 1972, at Yale University in Connecticut. Her father, A. Keith Dunker, was a biophysicist who worked at the university. Her mother was a Chinese-American woman who named her daughter after the Andromeda galaxy.
Andromeda developed an interest in languages and cultures from an early age. She moved to France with her family when she was six years old and became fluent in French. She also learned Chinese from her mother and Russian from her grandmother.
At age 15, Andromeda enrolled at Oregon University and started studying linguistics. She later transferred to Seattle and earned a bachelor of arts degree from the University of Washington. She also studied acting at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Los Angeles.
Andromeda Dunker began her career as a voice actor in 2000, when she voiced the character of Airan Jo in the video game Sin and Punishment. She also appeared as an actress in the film Life or Something Like It in 2002.
In 2009, Andromeda got her big break when she auditioned for the role of the narrator of House Hunters, a reality show that follows people as they search for their dream homes. She was selected for the job and became the third narrator of the show, replacing Suzanne Whang and Colette Whitaker.
Since then, Andromeda has narrated over 1,800 episodes of House Hunters and its spin-offs, such as House Hunters International, House Hunters Renovation, Tiny House Hunters, Beachfront Bargain Hunt, and Island Hunters.
Andromeda Dunker’s career as a voice actor and actress spans over two decades. In addition to lending her voice to House Hunters, she has voiced and acted in various video games, movies, and TV shows. Some of her notable works are:

Halo Infinite (2021), a video game where she voiced additional voices.

For an actor working for as long as she has, it is surprising that she isn’t all over the media. When asked about her secretive life, Andromeda says, “Part of my job is to be in the background. I’m not really with you, but I am leading you through this journey as a narrator. That’s kind of how I see it. If I were to come out more as a personality of my own, then it kind of breaks it. I’m not sure it would work as well.”
Andromeda Dunker currently resides in Los Angeles, California where she is also involved in different projects. As of 2023, she has a net worth of $2 Million which is attributed to her career as voice actor. She earns an annual salary of $170,000 as the narrator of House Hunters and its spin-offs.
