|“|| So, dream your dreams little ones, because this is a world where nothing |
is impossible. And isn't that the kind of world you want to live in?
—Perez Hilton signing off his webcast
Perez Hilton is a popular celebrity gossip blogger covering the rich and famous.
He played himself in the episode Girl Meets Rah Rah.
Usually one for uncovering the stories of the rich and famous, Perez Hilton, upon hearing about Riley Matthews' travails in seeking to become a cheerleader, travels to John Quincy Adams Middle School, to instead "find inspiration in the talentless and clumsy." He introduces Riley to his viewers, and she reveals that she has been trying to join the team for years. When he asks about the individual that finally caved in, and let Riley join, Coach Kelly walks across the shot, shielding her features, while warning Hilton to get out of her face--for which she is labeled "Feisty." He continues on about Riley, explaining hers is a story about a little girl who wouldn't give up, and earned the admiration of her squad as a result. A short routine is shown with two other members of the team performing athletic moves while Riley basically poses about with her pom-poms. Perez states that he can see what is going on. As Riley acknowledges the support of her old friends, she also mentions her new team mates who crowd around her. Hilton closes with telling his audience to dreams their dreams, as this is a world where nothing is impossible, and asks isn't that the type of world they want to live in.
- He is the fourth real world personality to play themselves on GMW after Herbie Hancock, Jane Lynch, and the band Sheppard.
- Considering the vulgar and malicious nature of his style of reporting, Perez Hilton is an odd choice to appear on a Disney Channel show. Also, the way Hilton is portrayed on the show is drastically different from his real life personality as he comes off to most as rude and offensive.
- Hilton previously appeared as a fictionalized version of himself on the Nickelodeon series, Victorious.
