Ross Mathews Quotes
Ross Mathews: I miss the days where a celebrity on a TV show would say 'this show was filmed in front of a live studio audience'.

Ross Mathews: My biggest pet peeve would have to be about people that are late, I am always early. It's like when you go to the movies, and you are early and your friends are late…I think that it is just a respect thing.

Ross Mathews: They don't tell me what to do or say; they just want me to be myself, there is pressure because nothing is scripted, but that is why it works so well.
