Towleroad Interview: Ross Mathews Dishes On Red Carpets and Dream Guests

Screen Shot 2013-10-01 at 12.57.58 AM

This is the second installment in a two-part interview with TV personality Ross Mathews. Click HERE for yesterday's first installment, in which Mathews discusses his new role as a spokesman for HIV testing.

If there's one thing Ross Mathews loves, it's pop culture. His sincere appreciation of all things pop and all-around nice guy attitude have won him a loyal fanbase of fellow entertainment enthusiasts (and recently earned him additional episodes onto his hit show's inaugural season). We caught up with Mathews last week to discuss award show red carpets, his pop culture obsessions and what life has been like since he's gone from talk show intern to talk show host.

Towleroad: What has it been like for you to have your own show?

Ross Mathews: It's a dream come true. I've wanted a talk show since I was eight years old, and now to be able to do it, and do it the right way and the way I wanted to is so rewarding. Especially because it's resonating with the audience, and the fans are getting it, and the format is clicking. People are understanding that this show really is a show for super fans in pop culture to unite. Everyone's welcome at this party. There are so many shows that turn down pop culture and talk about how stupid it is, but Hello Ross is all about 'I love it, you love it, let's talk it out.'

See the rest of the interview in which he talks about his dream guests and the recent TV finale that left him disappointed, AFTER THE JUMP...

This is the first installment in a two-part interview with TV personality Ross Mathews. Come back tomorrow to hear what Ross has to say about his life in Hollywood.

Ross Mathews is a man who wears many hats -- host of Hello Ross on E!, red carpet reporter, best-selling author, just to name a few. He's interviewed the First Lady, made besties with Gwyneth Paltrow and famously interned for Jay Leno. Since making his mark as the nicest guy in Hollywood, Mathews told Towleroad last Friday that he's setting his sights on something bigger.

"I'm so lucky to have a platform where I literally talk to millions of people a week, and I take it very seriously," he said. "I also have a direct line to the LGBT community because, of course, I have a large base of LGBT fans, but also I travel the country, I visit colleges, I am grand marshal at prides across the country ... With that sort of platform I feel a responsibility to talk about the issues facing that community."

On the top of his list is spreading the message about the importance of getting tested for HIV to the gay community.
