Turns out the mastermind villain and owner of that volcano house in Newberry Springs is none other than sunny TV host Huell Howser. The Los Angeles Times profiled the home over the weekend, reporting the 1968 residence was originally owned by businessman Vard Wallace, who built the home as a retreat. Its design was "envisioned to resemble the information center at the construction site of the nuclear generating plant at San Onofre." Howser still has the residence listed at $750,000.
