Ross Mathews is the host of E! Entertainment's pop culture series "Hello Ross." He is also a roundtable regular on the network's hit late night talk show "Chelsea Lately" and is often featured in NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno."

Over the last decade, Ross Mathews has interviewed some of the biggest stars in the world and has made the nation laugh all the while. Whether he was covering movie premieres, the Winter Olympic Games, the Academy Awards, jumping out of a plane or shopping in London with pal Gwyneth Paltrow, Ross' unique approach is always fresh, outrageous and fun. E! Entertainment Television named Ross one of the 30 Most Outrageous Celebrities, solidifying his spot as one of the most exciting personalities on television today.

Even as a child in the small town of Mount Vernon, Washington, Ross knew that he wanted to be on television, specifically as a talk show host. After graduating high school, Ross made the move to Southern California and attend the University of La Verne where he graduated in 2002 with departmental honors and a degree in Communications. It was in Ross' senior year in college that he interviewed for a position that would change his life — as an intern at "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," the #1 rated late-night talk show in the nation — and was hired!

Initially, the unpaid position came with duties that were in line with any internship: copies, faxes, coffee, etc. All of that changed, however, on Ross' last day of internship when he was called into the office of the head writer who informed Ross that they were aware of his dream and that they believed he had what it took to be on television. Ross was told that he was to leave immediately with George Clooney to the premiere of "Ocean's Eleven" where he would interview various celebrities as they walked down the red carpet.

The "Ocean's Eleven" segment was such a hit that the producers asked Ross to cover another premiere, followed by the 2002 Winter Olympics, with things snowballing from there. 10 years later, Ross has traveled the world as a "Tonight Show" correspondent, interviewing everyone from Oscar winners to British royalty, quickly becoming a staple of late-night television and a favorite of the public.



And late-night television is just the beginning! In addition to guest starring on NBC's "1 Vs 100" and "Phenomenon," Ross also appeared as a guest co-host of ABC's "The View," as a contestant on the fifth season of VH1's highly popular "Celebrity Fit Club," as a celebrity correspondent for the entertainment news programs "Extra" and CBS's "The Insider," as the recurring character of Chris on "Days of Our Lives" and as the co-host of The Game Show Network's "Big Saturday Night," E!'s "Live from the Red Carpet: The Screen Actors Guild Awards" and VH1's "Live Red Carpet: The Critic's Choice Awards," "Ask Oprah's All-Stars," ABC Family's holiday movie "Christmas Cupid" and E's "After lately."

In 2009-2010, Ross hosted and executive produced a daily web talk show for "The Insider" and CBS.com called "Inside Dish with Ross Mathews," a show about covering Hollywood from the outside in. "Inside Dish" eventually became the official web shows of CBS hits "Big Brother" and the Emmy winning "The Amazing Race."

Currently, Ross continues his "Tonight Show" correspondent duties (he also serves as a "Creative Consultant" for the show) and is a weekly regular panelist and guest host on E!'s hit late-night talk show, "Chelsea Lately."

In February 2011, Mathews began touring colleges speaking about his experiences climbing the Hollywood ladder and discussing his humorous take on pop culture.

In March 2011, it was announced that Ross is the newest spokesperson for Jenny Craig, having already shed 40!

In August 2011, The Hollywood Reporter broke the story that E! had signed Ross to a talent deal to increase his presence on the network. Included in that deal is a talk show pilot to be produced by Chelsea Handler's Borderline Amazing Productions that Mathews will host, write and co-produce.

Ross resides in Los Angeles with his family.
