What "extra BS"? Even if he does come out, assuming that he is gay, he would do so in an industry that has a lot of out gays in it.
Yes, Giovanni is majorly attractive, and I would definitely let him fuck my hole into a fine dust. But there are a lot of guys that look like him here in Miami.

So if this photo was taken back in 2011 and is not as recent as some initially believed, R81's claim that AC and Gio have been dating for about 2 weeks isn't very credible. Especially since AC and Ben were seen being affectionate at the Madonna concert less than a week ago, as described in the blog post at the link.

R145/R146 is known as the delusional Cesarfrau in the Anderson Cooper threads. She's obsessed with AC's old bf of many years ago, Cesar, and hates his current bf Ben. She keeps saying that Ben is the "invisible bf" even though he's been a lot more visible for the 4 (not 3) years that he's been with AC than Cesar ever was. When Anderson was supposedly dating Cesar, he sure was hiding him a lot more than Ben, who has been seen and photographed with him countless times. But try telling that to the Cesarfrau, and she'll get hysterical.

I'm not Miami Hooker but somebody posted this in the other Gio Benitez thread:
[quote]Rumor has it that Gio is trying to get to Anderson Cooper's bf Ben. Gio can't wait to get his tight bubble ass pounded by Ben's big cock.
It makes sense that an A-list power bottom like Gio would want to hook up with Ben. I never bought that he would be interested in another bottom like Anderson Cooper, David Muir or Sam Champion.

I think you are getting a bit overly paranoid r175. If I recall correctly, that pic showed AC, Gio and Gio's bf at a gym in Miami, and was from a couple of years ago. There was absolutely nothing intimate going on, it was taken in a public place, and there was a third person in the pic (Gio's bf). All in all it was pretty innocuous, so I doubt that anyone found it so incriminating that they would try to suppress it.

So Anderson has known Gio for at least a couple of years, before Gio moved to New York for his new job? Perhaps the person who said Anderson got him the job is right.

I disagree, I think it's the responsibility of every gay public figure to come out. Especially for someone of Gio's generation, it makes no sense to be in the closet. Otherwise, they're sending the message that they're ashamed of being gay. What is Gio afraid of anyway? His own co-worker at ABC is Sam Champion, who's openly gay.

Visibility for public figures who are gay is important, and Gio is setting a bad example by refusing to come out.

Gio needs to work on his broadcast voice. It doesn't come across as natural.
I'd be curious to know what his normal speaking voice sounds like.
Also needs to work on his ego -- its getting to David Tyler Muir proportions. On a Nightline report on the electronic dance music craze and the accompanying raves, his ego was fully on display. Several shots of him with groupies adoring him at the rave. Completely unnecessary for the report. In fact, it detracted from the reporting as we paused for Gio to show us people adored him, mugging for the camera with him, and then continued on with the report.

I like Gio. But I have to agree, he currently lacks the gravitas to report really hard news. He does have a youthful, gee whiz approach to most of his reports.
And yes, his voice is contributing to that gee whiz nature. His broadcast voice doesn't sound natural. It sounds very young, teenagerish, but still phoney. Perhaps David Tyler Muir can give him tips on deepening it.
And while he looks good in the suits he wears on camera (all new suits purchased in the past year since joining ABC), he doesn't look comfortable wearing them.
As for his teeth, everyone in the public eye seems to have overwhite teeth these days, Gio's are extra white. Its especially distracting when he gives too big a smile on camera.
The bottom line is Gio will likely keep doing softer, fluffy pieces for a while until he grows into the role of a national news reporter.

George Stephanopolus is closeted gay but got married for his family and to keep gay rumors at bay. Nice guy though.

r452, Gio sounds way more nasally than he did when he was in Miami, maybe he's not used to the cold weather yet? He sounded like regular Cuban trade/college boy when he worked here for CBS 4.
David Muir is the best news voice/gay voice removal expert in the biz, so this must be a phase of his work on Gio's vocal chords. Or maybe David is using his penis to work on Gio's vocal chords right now.

I think his voice is an attempt to sound "newsy" and not so feminine. It's a put on voice and it makes him sound like a fraud. I don't care for him because he seems like one of those guys that most everyone knows is gay but still puts on a straight act for those that don't. If he comes out he would be so much more genuine and his reporting would really improve. Question is, does ABC want another out gay reporter/anchor?

r458, honestly, most gay Latino and Caribbean guys like Gio here in Miami are this way, it's not really an "act" per-say. You really don't know if they are gay or not because most of them are pretty masculine. The only reason I knew Gio was gay was from his IG pics and other gossip.

The more media training media gets, the less comfortable he seems on camera.
All the on-camera, in-studio small talk on GMA comes off as extremely forced and unnatural.
It's only when he's on camera in studio talking to David Tyler Muir does he seem relaxed.
Similarly, Gio's voice sounded much more natural a year ago. Now, it comes off as so affected and unnatural, it's actually distracting from the story he's reporting.

Gio will definitely be a part of the new GMA - they need some man eye candy (that's why Josh was brought on a few years back - to steal women's focus from Matt Lauer at Today) and someone young and hot like Gio is just what the doctor ordered.

Gio still comes across as really stiff on camera. The small talk is uncomfortably awkward at times.
But the good thing about Gio being on Good Morning America is that he looks much less stiff when compared to George S, who despite years on anchoring the show, still looks to pain doing the small talk.
I don't think we'll ever see Gio and George sharing the on-screen camaraderie and ease that Sam and Josh did.

Most people who grow up bilingual still have the Spanish inflection in their English that is more noticeable to someone when English is their first language. I think all of this has resulted in this strange tone he uses now.

Does Gio have a big muscle bubble butt?

R587 Diane looks bombed in that pic (no surprise.)
So did they color-coordinate their outfits in advance?

Saw Gio w/ the dude on the left from Instagram he had posted yesterday. Looked fun!

David's first night as anchor is Monday. Will Gio make an appearance, either as an in-studio reporter or just to wish his honey good luck?

Gio looks like he's lost a lot of his muscle mass in that latest pic (R586). Is he going for a new slim look?

He was busting the seams on all of David's shirts, and David had to have something to wear on the air behind the anchor desk.

Gio posted a pic of his Emmy he just won. I'm proud of him I gotta say

R592 I believe it's Tuesday, not Monday (because of the holiday.)

No, tonight Amy Robach was the anchor and her last words were "David Muir has this chair starting Monday"...

David starts at the desk tomorrow.
I'm home chilling the champagne.
