Ross Mathews (born September 24, 1979) is an American television personality who first rose to fame with his role as an intern, and later, a correspondent, for The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, for which he was known as "Ross the Intern".

He is now working on the hit show Live from E!.

Early life[edit]

Mathews has contributed commentary to the E! networks various 101... specials, and appeared as a weekly panelist on E's late night talk show Chelsea Lately.[4]

He appeared on the fifth season of VH1's reality television show, Celebrity Fit Club. During the course of the show, which premiered in April 2007, Mathews lost more than 40 lbs. and helped his team win the grand prize.

Mathews was a guest host on The View (July 17, 2007), one of the very few men to sit on the panel. Former co-host Rosie O'Donnell is Mathews' mentor, according to the Celebrity Fit Club finale.

Mathews appeared as a celebrity mob member on seven episodes of NBC's prime time game show 1 vs. 100 in early 2008 with his winnings going to an animal adoption charity.

Since 2011, Mathews has appeared multiple times in a guest role on the NBC daytime drama Days of Our Lives as Chris.

In 2009, Mathews was a contributing correspondent on The Insider and hosted a web show with The Insider called Inside Dish With Ross Mathews, where he took his viewers behind the scenes, as an "outsider" in Hollywood. "Inside Dish" became the official online web-shows for CBS's Big Brother and The Amazing Race.

Also in 2009, Mathews co-hosted GSN's Big Saturday Night, a weekly three-hour live game show. His other 2009 appearances included The Howard Stern Show and the 2009 Game Show Awards with Diane Mizota.

In 2010, Mathews joined the E! Network's red carpet team, filling in for Ryan Seacrest as co-host with Giuliana Rancic for E! Live From the Red Carpet coverage of the 2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards, the 2010 Emmy Awards, the 2011 Golden Globe Awards and the 2011 Academy Awards.

In January 2011, Mathews starred in a pilot that he also produced and co-wrote with fellow Chelsea Lately roundtable regular Heather McDonald, titled Love or Hate for the E! Network that was executive produced by Chelsea Handler and her company Borderline Amazing Productions.[5]

Mathews also appeared in the E! Network's After Lately, a show about the behind the scenes of Chelsea Lately.[6]

On September 9, 2011 it was mentioned by Jay Leno that Mathews had moved on from The Tonight Show. However, since then, Mathews appeared in various segments, including the "Woulda, Coulda, Shoulda" skit on December 14, 2011.[7]

Mathews appeared in the fourth episode of the Bravo series Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, in which Lewis redesigned his and his boyfriend's garage.[8]

On May 7, 2013 Mathews released the book Man Up! Tales of My Delusional Self-Confidence.[4]
