HOST OF: Extra
HIS REPUTATION: He’s always got game. “I love to play basketball,” says McGrath, who’s also the frontman for his band, Sugar Ray. And, he says,
“I CAN JUGGLE. NOW IT’S KIND OF MUTATED, LIKE I CAN JUGGLE A PING-PONG BALL, A PILLOW AND A SHOE. IT’S A GREAT PARTY TRICK”
BEST FRIENDS: McGrath’s new gig affords him more time with his three dogs. “I love them more than anything in the world,” he says. “I can’t be without them for more than five hours. They sleep in my bed. Actually, they sleep on me.”
STATUS: Married, father of three girls
HOST OF: Access Hollywood
HIS REPUTATION: He dares to bring pizza to supermodel Heidi Klum the day she walks the Victoria’s Secret runway in lingerie, and dresses like a cowboy in hopes of fooling Donald Trump at an Apprentice audition. But, says cohost Nancy O’Dell, “he can charm the pants off anybody. He loves to tease, but in the most charming and innocent way. He can be the most flirtatious at work, and then he goes home to his wife. That makes him such a sexy man.” LADIES’ DAYS: With the recent birth of his third daughter, Bush, who stays in shape by swimming 30 laps in his pool daily, is the man of the house.
“I’M QUITE THE MARTHA STEWART AT HOME,” he says. “We make cookies and muffins, and we play a lot of dress-up and Polly Pocket. The girls have this capacity to love that is so intense, and I get all the attention. I love it.”
STATUS: Married, father of two boys.
HOST OF: Entertainment Tonight
HIS REPUTATION: Steines’s boy-next-door persona is as traditional as John Deere (where his dad worked for 30 years). Born and raised in Dubuque, Iowa, he was an all-state football player at the University of Northern Iowa and even married a Miss America—Leanza Cornett. Working on his uncle’s farm helped prepare him for bigger things. “We picked up eggs from the henhouse, milked cows,” says Steines. “I developed a lot of my strength baling hay and stacking it.”
MIDWEST IS BEST: For now the family is settled in L.A., but Steines is still drawn to his hometown. “I wouldn’t mind returning there,” he says. “I could teach at the university, and we could go to town for games on Saturday nights.”
