E! talk show host and TV personality Ross Mathews recently chatted with TVRage.com's Senior Writer Anthony Marcusa about the second season of 'Hello Ross' and how he became a pop culture super fan.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

"TVRage: You have declared yourself a pop culture super fan. How do you take everything in? How do you stay up on everything going on? Shouldn’t you be watching TV instead of doing an interview?

Ross Mathews: (laughs) It’s not a chore to take it all in. I do have to be picky, though, I want to watch and soak up as much as I can, especially with our show in our second season. I feel a responsibility to the audience. I’m the super fan, the elected delegate of all super fans, and I need to be on top of it.

What really helps now is the Internet. You can’t watch everything, but if something becomes buzz worthy and you’re hearing about it, you can pull it up and watch and catch up. That keeps me up to date on everything.

Plus I am a super fan, so none of this is put on. I would be watching and reading and listening to this stuff anyway.

TVRage: So this persona, this person that we see on TV, has that been you since you were young, or it is something, someone that you’ve grown into?

Mathews: I’ve always just been a super fan. You talk about being a personality and being a fan, the best part about making a living is being yourself. It’s not as hard work as you imagine, because I would be doing it if I was making a living or not. I have always been this person who has unabashedly loved pop culture. Now I just can do it on a stage in front of people."

'Hello Ross' Season 2 premieres Feb. 21 on E!
