Ryan Checks In on KTLA’s Sam Rubin’s Matchmaking Skills for Tanya Rad

Is this the perfect match?! KTLA’s Sam Rubin has a success rate when it comes to setting people up. The news anchor connected Tanya Rad with a potential suitor over Thanksgiving weekend and on Thursday, November 29, Ryan Seacrest checked in with Sam to see why he thinks the man, whom we’ve dubbed “He-Man,” is a perfect fit for our girl. 

“It is the triumphant matchmaker — I don’t mean to tout my own success, but I am majorly successful at this,” Sam told Ryan on-air when he called in, revealing he had an epiphany after remembering what Tanya Rad told him what she’s looking for in a man.

“I would like to re-dub him as ‘the available Sam,’” Sam shared of "He-Man." “… He works with me on a lot on the red carpet shows that I do and we had gone to visit a sponsor in Orange County so had a long drive … and [I’m like] ‘Single, successful guy etc., the love life, how is it going?’ And he said he’s unable to meet anybody that has the same values that he has and … I then recalled Tanya saying something to that effect so when she came in … I was like, ‘Wait — values meet values! Duh! Of course!’” 


The mystery man and Tanya have since connected and are planning on meeting each other. 


“I have a good feeling about this,” Sam concluded, revealing that he’s already set up three marriages!
