From New York City Taxi’s to TV…Pedro Andrade
hottie Pedro Andrade the other day.
That sexy Brazilian accent was romancing my ears… from the TV in the cab.
For the last few years, the host of LXTV’s 1st Look New York , has been covering all the hot things to see/do in Gotham.
But for this Rio de Janeiro–raised journalist-actor-model, the gig is a dream come true. “I auditioned about six times. It was callback after callback,” says the West Village resident. “But it was worth it. I never really found my passion until I started hosting.”
Pedro was first discovered by famed fashion photographer Mario Testino and traveled the world modeling for the likes of Giorgio Armani before joining LXTV (NBC’s lifestyle network) in ’06. I think perhaps he gained the most national attention for dating Lance Bass!
These days he is still juggling several tv shows and he is in talks with Gilt Groupe for some kind of special partnership and promotion! (Gilt Groupe provides invitation-only access to highly coveted products and experiences at insider prices.
