Since 2001, Ross Mathews has traveled the world and established himself as one of the most in-demand television correspondents and hosts 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”.
In 2013, Mathews will release his first book, Man Up: Tales of My Self Delusional Self-Confidence on May 7, 2013 [Grand Central Publishing]. 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 Theissen, Madonna and Michelle Kwan [to name a few] without ever having a single restraining order issued against him. In addition to "Man Up", 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.
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.
