De Pasquale’s Dozen with Fox Nation Host Tyrus

If you’re a Fox News viewer, you’re familiar with Tyrus from The Greg Gutfeld Show. He’s a professional wrestler, actor (must watch TV show:Glow), and former bodyguard to Snoop Dogg. Another title he’ll be adding to his resume – TV host! 

Tyrus had a hard upbringing, growing up in Los Angeles foster homes. Despite hardships he found activities like football and security detail to keep him on the right path. In 2006, he debuted with the WWE and in true wrestler form, took to Twitter for some smack talk, calling out Greg Gutfeld for some offense. It led to a fast friendship and his own chair on The Greg Gutfeld Show.

Starting tomorrow, November 27, he will also be the host of the new Fox Nation show, UN-PC, which streams weeknights at 6 p.m. EST. Tyrus is a joy to watch because he doesn’t come from a political background. The news becomes so much more interesting and entertaining when non-politicos stray discuss issues like real people rather that from talking points. 

As a former guest and perennial fan of Red Eye(RIP) when it was on Fox News, I am so excited for this new subscription-based streaming line-up because it’s giving more air time to people like Tyrus, Rachel Campos Duffy, Tom Shillue, Greg Gutfeld who know the importance of talking politics and pop culture with humor and honesty. 

The De Pasquale's Dozen asks political figures, free market-minded writers and entertainers to take a break from politics and talk about their culture obsessions.
