Matt Gutman: Break-out News Hottie of the Oil Spill?


On a bit of a lighter note, regarding the Deepwater Horizon disaster (I say a bit, because when you see the following reporter on oil-soaked birds you'll be brought right back to the bleakness and horror of it all)...

ABC News' Matt Gutman is being talked about as the Anderson Cooper of the oil spill, not only for his on-the-scene reporting ("He's very much in the mold of the reporter who is a true digital journalist - someone who can shoot and produce and edit"), but for his propensity to wear tight-fitting polos.


Gushes blogger Antoine Reid:

"Where the heck did ABC recruit this guy from? Seriously, he looks like he was ripped from the cover of Men’s Health or Muscle & Fitness. It’s like Christmas when this guy comes on to report about something – he has that stereotypical immaculate dark news anchor hair, a nice build to him, wears the tightest shirts he can find. Wooh, heat wave! I feel like Blanche from The Golden Girls whenever ABC drags him out of hiding."

  2. I've been a Matt fan for quite a while. He did a shirtless report once that had something to do with scuba diving and also appeared once in a black tanktop.

  6. "My number is......" well......wishful thinking. Trust me, living here we could use some distraction from the endless barrage of images of oiled birds and wildlife. Thanks Andy....and ahhhhh..Matt

  8. I dig his perky lil ears. Looks like he's got some fur too. I'd hit that!

  10. Seriously? With this horrible environmental disaster you shallow, insipid bitches are actually talking about how cute the guy is who reports on it? Wow.

  11. shane, shame. you are such a debbie downer. life goes on, missy.

    Posted by: nic | Jun 10, 2010 1:55:22 PM

  12. If it weren't for the oil-soaked pelican in the picture--which is sad, depressing, tragic and heart-rending--it might be fun to wax euphoric over the newsman. Yeah, butthole (no names please), life does go on missy, unless you are any one of the thousands of creatures who are dead or are dying because of this disaster or one of 11 men killed on the oil rig or the tens of thousands of people whose livelihood is gone forever. Sure, debby, go ahead, drop another downer, hit the clubs and dance your tired ass off. Problems? What problems? Disaster? What disaster? A tacky queen is a tacky queen, MISSY.

  13. Oh please- yes this is a tragedy of epic proportions but there is nothing wrong with admiring such a cute looking guy like Matt.

  14. @JAMAL49,

    you make me laugh. talk about tacky....

    Posted by: nic | Jun 10, 2010 7:33:33 PM

  15. Hot like a controlled-burn oil slick!
    And you know what else? Anderson Cooper is kind of boring me lately; he's getting all Lou Dobbs-ish.

  16. Is this what this blog has come to?

    Posted by: Beargrin | Jun 10, 2010 9:44:07 PM

  17. I concur with others here ...

    S H A M E !! You queens make me sick -- all you can do is comment on how hot the newscaster!?

  18. Notice the band on his finger. Guess he's taken. *sigh of disappointment*

    (Totally ignoring those condescending drama queens Chapeau, Beargrin and Shane)

  19. He could still fuck around. A ring doesn't mean anything. It's just a major turn-on (for some). Makes us want to try harder, LOL.

    As for the disaster? There will always be queens who want to party in the face of a disaster, get over it. And if you think THIS is bad, just wait for what's next as far as disasters go. 2012 will wipe us out.

  20. I agree with comments about Mr. Gutman's cuteness and I have enjoyed his reporting of such an unenjoyable situation in the gulf. Nevertheless, I'd still rather meet David Muir in my "dinner with an ABC News reporter" dream.

  21. @OBMITAR,

    agreed. i've had a long-standing crush on david muir. he is a beauty.

    Posted by: nic | Jun 11, 2010 1:51:21 AM

  22. How come no one is talking about the most beautiful guy on the new Mr. Rob Marciano from CNN?

  23. McDreamy hair...

  24. He's hot and cares about animals. Is he single?

    Posted by: Eric | Jun 12, 2010 5:18:06 PM

  25. Watching him right now, actually. First saw him last week watching tube with sis, sis turns to me and says, "Check out the package on this guy!"

    He should wear light colored khakis all the time.
