Name: Jake Hamilton

Position: Reporter

Hometown: Buna, Texas

Fun Fact: I actually hate movies :)

Favorite Memory: Any time I have the opportunity to introduce a loved one to an actor they really love -- there's no greater feeling than being able to make that happen.

Greatest Career Accomplishment: Emmy nomination for "Best On Air Talent" at the age of 21.

Most Embarrassing Moment: Peeing next to Emile Hirsch at the Critics Choice Awards -- what do you say at that moment? "So.... 'Speed Racer' was okay."

Favorite Place to Travel: There's nothing like walking the streets of New York City while it's raining.

Best Friend: My girlfriend, Laura.

Favorite TV Show: LOST -- the greatest show in the history of television. Please don't call me while it is on or I might yell at you.

If an actor were to play you in a movie, who would it be? Denzel Washington

TV character you're most like? My mission is to be as laid back as Jim Halpert, as sharp dressed as Don Draper, as witty as Dr. House and as popular as Vincent Chase -- so far, I've accomplished none of these.

Favorite booking: Tom Hanks on "Jake's Takes"

Zodiac sign: Capricorn

Fears or phobias: Making a boring "About Me" page on the Great Day Houston website

Guilty pleasure: Armageddon. I will defend that movie until the day I die.

Pet Peeve: People who are always late

Weirdest job you've ever had: I was a waiter for the first few months I was on Great Day -- and was nearly fired when I told him I needed to take off of work to go interview Tom Cruise because he thought I was lying.

If you could live in a musical, would you? Yes, but I would be the "Guy #2" in the background who just bobs his head and taps his foot -- the extent of my musical abilities.
