BOBBY G: JOURNALIST, COMEDIAN, WRESTLER? - ICON
One impromptu, candid video. A video he put up for jokes. Who would have thought a friends-only, inside joke-kinda vid would pull a Justin Bieber and launch a world full of opportunities, including interviewing Toronto celebrities (Karl Wolf, DJ 4Korners etc.) and joining the Anti Giants Comedy Tour. The buff Greek-Italian god boasts as heavyweight city champion for amateur wrestling 2 years in a row (2006 and 2007), not to mention his 80-pound weight loss in a compelling time period of merely 7 months!
Bobby is a creator; his imagination cannot be suppressed by boundaries already met by known organizations or legends. In fact, he wants to start his own business, which he already kinda did. Maybe a real TV talk show is in the works :).
And he's not afraid - and knows how - to ask controversial questions, like nonchalantly interrogating 4korners on if they slept with Paris Hilton, which they eventually admitted to. He jokes around with celebs like they're eachother's confidantes. That's how he gains their trust - as a person and a journalist. His influences, role models - even Sean Kingston - said he was different from the rest - that he was funny - because he didn't try so desperately to impress the industry. Just by being himself, Bobby is enough to lure in the right attention and connections.
