Ross Mathews        

Host of Hello Ross! & Author of "Man Up: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence"

Since 2001, Ross Mathews has traveled the world and established himself as one of the most in-demand television personalities and entertainment correspondents in the pop-culture arena today. Endearing and witty, undeniably funny and one of the hardest working people in show business, Mathews has won the hearts of millions of Americans since his television debut -- as a correspondent for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Mathews can currently be seen hosting the smash hit, talk show Hello Ross!, for E!, season two premiered on February 21, 2014. Hello Ross! is the weekly fan destination where the intersections of celebrity gossip and pop culture collide, giving a unique viewpoint into the latest Hollywood news. Mathews was also recently nominated for a 2014 People's Choice Award, for "Favorite New Talk Show Host."

In 2013, Mathews released his first book, Man Up: Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence which quickly became a national bestseller. With an introduction written by Gwyneth Paltrow, and afterword from Chelsea Handler, Man Up takes readers inside Mathews' personal journey as a super fan, revealing the most embarrassing and hilarious moments of his small town life and big city adventures, and how he managed to turn an obsession with pop culture into one on one interactions with celebrities like Paltrow, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Madonna, and Michelle Kwan [to name a few] without ever having a single restraining order issued against him. In addition to Man Up and Hello Ross!, Mathews can be seen as a regular panelist and occasional guest host on E!'s late-night talk show Chelsea Lately, and is a fixture on E! News and E! Network's live red carpet awards show coverage.

In 2009, Mathews hosted and executive produced a daily web talk show for The Insider and called Inside Dish with Ross Mathews, a show about covering Hollywood from the outside in. Inside Dish eventually became the official web show for CBS hits Big Brother, and the Emmy Award winning series The Amazing Race. In 2011, Mathews began a national college tour speaking about his experiences climbing the Hollywood ladder and discussing his humorous take on pop culture. Many of his tour dates were documented on E! News' political series Pop & Politics. It was also announced in summer 2011 that Mathews had signed a talent deal with the E! Network, to increase his presence at the network. Leading up to the 2012 Presidential Election, Mathews was the official political reporter for E! News. He covered both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions, where he interviewed politicians including First Lady Michelle Obama, former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, and former Republican Presidential nominee John McCain.

Mathews' impressive resume of programs he has appeared on over the past decade include: NBC's 1 vs. 100 and Phenomenon, he has appeared as a guest co-host on ABC's The View, he was a contestant on the fifth season of VH1's hit series Celebrity Fit Club, he has appeared as a celebrity correspondent on Extra and The Insider, has recurred as 'Chris' on "Days of our Lives," co-hosted The Game Show Network's Big Saturday Night, appeared on the OWN Network's Ask Oprah's All- Stars, starred as himself in ABC Family's holiday movie Christmas Cupid, and has made appearances on BRAVO's Interior Therapy, ABC Family's Beverly Hills Nannies Reunion, E!'s Studio E! and After Lately, and HGTV's House Hunters.

Mathews currently lives in Los Angeles with his partner Salvador and their two rescue dogs Louise and Mijo. When not working on his many projects, Mathews is a strong supporter of the Human Rights Campaign- speaking at many of their nationwide events and he received their Visibility Award in 2011.
