Hello Ross is a show for fans and about fans of pop culture. Now, the host of the fan-driven show, Ross Mathews, is counting on fans to vote for him in his very own People's Choice Awards nomination!
"I just started screaming. I was screaming higher pitch than normal. I was just so excited," Ross revealed to E! News. "I have loved award shows since I was a little kid. I knew that the nominations were coming out today because I'm an awards-show freak. I had no idea that I'd be on the list though. When I saw it, I was like, 'Say wha?!'"
The Best New Talk Show Host nominee wasn't joking about his reaction and immediately took to Twitter to share his excitement:
OMG!!! I was just nominated for a @PeoplesChoice Award for Best New Talk Show Host!!! OMG!!!!!! What?!? WOWOWOWOWOW!!! THANK YOU!!!!!— Ross Mathews (@helloross) November 5, 2013
The Hello Ross staff all found out around the same time and reacted in the most appropriate way possible: "We put on the 'Celebrate Good Times' song and we all danced around."
"And I told them, don't be weird just because I'm like a big deal now, a People's Choice nominee," Ross said jokingly. "Totally just treat me normal. I'm just like you, one leg at a time."
But the Tonight Show alum doesn't have time to sit back, relax and renjoy his nomination, he's got a show to tape and is getting ready for his big Tori Spelling interview.
"She has this book coming out right now that is chock-full of crazy admissions," he said. "We're going to get to the bottom of some of those and we're going to play a game with her."
Sounds like a great time. We wish Ross the best of luck with his nomination! You can vote for the 2014 People's Choice Awards online.
Tune-in to Hello Ross tonight at 10/9c with special guest, Tori Spelling!
