It depends on where he was born, R3. There are many US-born, Cuban-Americans who were circumcised at birth.

I've seen his cock. About 7 long and kind of girthy. Not crazy girthy, but girthy nonetheless. He trims. I've heard that he tends to be animalistic while fucking. If you tell him to slow down or that it hurts, he will fuck even harder. Really nice ass.

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.

Maybe Im getting used to him, but he doesnt seem a smug as he was a couple of years ago.

Anderson is constantly asked to pause for pics with random people who then put them up on Twitter or Instagram. The pic of AC with Gio and his bf is just one of many such photos. Here's another one taken yesterday, showing Anderson with some girl. Does it mean he's dating her too? Of course not.

R105 On another thread that photo of AC and Gio and some other guy (maybe Gio's BF) in a gym was shown to be from 2011 from Gio's FB page. It isn't even recent. I think it's the thread about AC's talk show being canceled but I can't be certain.

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.

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.

And who was Gio's bf?

So according to you R191, just because Gio is younger than Jodie, he should be given a pass for being in the closet? 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.

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.

Elizabeth Vargas married and a nightmare to work with. Jake Tapper straight and a sweet man. Chris Cuomo straight married and also a sweet guy. George Stephanopolus is closeted gay but got married for his family and to keep gay rumors at bay. Nice guy though. David Muir is 100 percent gay obsessed with his namebrand clothes and worked his way up from desk assistant. He also is too concerned about his crooked face on camera and wears a ton of makeup.

Here's the video of Gio and the GMA folks dancing with Pharrell in Times Square. Even George got up on the stage!

by Anonymousreply 47304/07/2014

As tired of that song as I am, that was very enjoyable. Pharrell was having a hard time keeping up with his playback. I liked watching George dance. Gio is really a big girl!

by Anonymousreply 47404/07/2014

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.

Can't stand the hyperactive GMA with everyone in constant party mode. Caught the tail end today with that awful music--who the hell IS that? I will say that Gio seems more low key than the rest, and he seems somewhat shy and likable. If they add him to the permanent cast, let's see if he joins the idiotic antics. I never knew George was so short; is he a midget? Isn't he from Cleveland? His wife used to be hot and is funny.

Pharrell was better on SNL with the dancing kids than he was in the morning with GMA.

Gio needs to get a better fitting suit. Must be hard for him to buy off the rack and find jackets that cover his titties.

Has anyone here noticed that almost every single linked news item on Gio Benitez that has been posted here has mysteriously been "scrubbed" from the publisher's website? Go back and click on the links guys and you will see what I am talking about.

Almost all of the pictures and other news items are literally GONE! And they appear to be gone because they were removed at the source.

It is possible he or ABC news is trying to do a scrub on anything "out there" about him?

I find ABC'S endless promotion of Giovanni and Ginger Zee very annoying. Neither has enough skills as a journalist to warrant a position beyond a local broadcat in Miami or Dallas.

With tits and abs like that, R503, who cares if he has "skills as a journalist". He should just do his reports shirtless. David is a lucky man.

As for Ginger, she's just a weather girl...

Thank you R502 for that photo.

If Gio's got that much time to work out, as evidenced in r502's photo, he must not be terribly serious about being a journalist.

I love that Gio is so muscular! I'm sick of how most famous gays are either skinny or lean athletic. Gio is hot! He still needs to work on his reporting voice sounds strange. Where was David for the shirtless pic? He has arms but I've never seen his upper body.

With the way Gio talks now, I get the impression this isn't his natural/original sound. I bet when he was younger he sounded more "feminine" and he worked hard on it...resulting in this strange tone he has now.

by Anonymousreply 50905/18/2014

r509, I honestly think he's trying too hard to sound like an Anglo-Saxon! As I've said before on this thread, Gio sounded like a regular Latino guy from Miami before he moved to NYC. 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.

by Anonymousreply 51005/18/2014

R510 that's a shame then if he changed for that reason. Having the Cuban Miami accent would have set Gio apart (besides his nice muscles) from the other reporters.

Matt Gutman did the exact same rip current report on Monday night's ABC News, including getting in the water to demonstrate how to swim out of a rip current, Except the life guards didn't have to rescue him.

Weird they would have Gio doing the same report the next day.

Here's a link to a 2010 radio interview Gio did about the aftermath of the Haiti earthquake. His voice seems much more natural here because he's talking to the radio DJs as opposed to reporting a story.

Also note at the very end of the video, Gio says he has a girlfriend.

r537 He could have been bearding. But I think it was probably just easier to say he had a girlfriend than to say he was gay. This was a radio show being broadcast all over Southern Florida. He'd only been on his job as a TV reporter about a year at that point.

Maybe David and Gio took the weekend off to celebrate both pride and David's promotion.

The name of the weekend broadcast will remain "World News with David Muir" a new permanent anchor is announced. But they need to get the new anchor in place by September since when David moves to weeknights, that show will drop the "with Diane Sawyer" and add "with David Muir."
