Tom Gleeson, Australian stand-up comedian and television host, recently shared a snippet of an episode of his show ‘Hard Quiz’. While show promotions by the hosts are a pretty common sight on the Internet, this one video that Gleeson shared is going viral for an altogether different reason. The video shows Gleeson engaging in a friendly banter with a contestant of Indian-origin with disarmingly charming looks. The man identifies himself as Theja on the show and happens to have, in Gleeson’s own words ‘completely thrown him out of whack’. “I think you might be the most attractive person we’ve ever had on this show…It’s really thrown me. This is supposed to be a quiz for nerds. What are you doing here?” Gleeson asks him in the video. Theja, who later says, “this is not my real name,” replies “I am going red but you just can’t tell.”

Twitter users meanwhile have lost their calm over the good looks of ‘Theja’, who is a dentist and loves Sachin Tendulkar.

Give the dentist his due. Share his twitter handle and give him some well-deserved followers please.
