Here's what to know about the dimpled father of five from Utah.
When Justin Rose joined The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City alongside wife Whitney Rose in Season 1, fans were quick to notice one major thing about the new cast member: His impressive dimples. But there's plenty more to know about the Utah-based sales officer.
For instance, during Episode 2 of Season 4, Justin revealed he was wearing crystals around his neck to help him communicate.
“Because lord knows I need the help,” he said.
“We’ve been through a lot of transitions. Me starting my business, him losing his job, me going through unpacking trauma. So we realized that we’re not very good communicators,” Whitney shared while on a double date with Angie Katsanevas and Shawn Trujillo.
“That surprises me about you two,” Angie said.

Who is Justin Rose?
Justin Rose is a Utah native who attended Brigham Young University, receiving his degree in International Relations and Business Management.
Aside from his 30+ years of experience in direct sales, Justin is a proud Househusband — he even lists the honor in his Instagram bio.
How did Justin Rose meet Whitney Rose?
While Justin and Whitney's early relationship was a bit controversial, everything ended up in a great place. The pair met while Justin was Whitney's boss. Both were married at the time, and ended up leaving their spouses to be together.
"She fell in love with Justin. They had this illicit, torrid affair and, as a result, they were both excommunicated from the Mormon church," explained Heather Gay in Season 1 Episode 1, which featured the couple's 10th anniversary vow renewal. (Whitney later clarified that she wasn't excommunicated but rather chose to walk away from the church.)
In the same episode, one of Whitney's cousins apologized to her for doubting her relationship with Justin.
"I don't think I thought you'd be here 10 years from now when I went to your first wedding," the anonymous cousin said, prompting Whitney to explain that a lot of her and Justin's friends and family turned their back on the couple during the early days of their relationship.
"If I had to choose everything I went through to be with Justin — all of the judgment, all of the criticism, all of the pain — I would do it again. Because my life is so full," Whitney shared.
What does Justin Rose do for work?
Justin is an executive in the direct sales industry. After being fired from his long-held position as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer at LifeVantage Corporation (a situation that was covered during Season 3 of RHOSLC), he began working at Awakend as the company's president in March 2023.
"Justin Rose made his debut at the young age of 12 in the Little League World Series. From the little league field to the sales field, Justin has carved a career building some of the most successful sales and marketing programs in the direct selling industry," reads his LinkedIn bio. "From sales development to field training and support, he’s driven by helping distributors reach their potential—a philosophy that usually involves one-on-one support and spending time in the field creating the type of incentives and promotions that drive growth."
While in between jobs, Justin was able to take some time off and enjoy his family.
“Justin is living his best life. He is taking naps, he’s driving carpool — it’s actually been a very beautiful thing for us, because after such a hard year, my husband gets to be home with our children,” Whitney shared during a February 2023 episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City After Show. “Like, as a mother, it is so meaningful to me that they have a dad that’s present in their life.”
How many kids does Justin Rose have?
Justin has five kids. He has three sons — Austin, Christopher, and Trey — from his first marriage. He also shares daughter Bobbie and son Brooks with Whitney. He also has two step-grandchildren.
During Season 2 Episode 5, Whitney shared that, while she would love a bigger family, more children are off the table for the Roses; Justin has had a vasectomy.
“I’ve always wanted more kids, but it’s not going to happen” she shared. “After Brooks was born, Justin went and got snipped and cut."
The beauty entrepreneur also shared how the surgery came to be.
“Justin and I negotiated and came up with an agreement to have two children. So I agreed to the vasectomy, but later on regretted it.”
Are Whitney Rose and Justin Rose swingers?
Hey, people have asked. During Episode 4 of RHOSLC Season 1, Whitney cleared the air on rumors she and her husband were swingers.
“I’m not a swinger,” she said.
