Who's The Bearded Guy At The 2015 VMAs Red Carpet? He's Totally Stealing The Pre Show

BySamantha Rullo

We haven't even gotten to the actual show yet, and already a ton of things are happening at the 2015 MTV VMAs pre show. But if you were able to look away from the huge celebrities giving interviews, the exciting performances, and of course, Miley Cyrus' eye-catching outfit, you may have noticed a mysterious bearded man on the VMAs red carpet. He suddenly appears in the middle of segments and interviews with celebrities like Rebel Wilson, giving his two cents before disappearing behind the camera again. Who is this man who has managed to capture my attention when stars like Nick Jonas and Vic Mensa are around?

The answer is a resounding, who knows? There doesn't seem to be any information available about this mystery man, which only makes me more intrigued by him. Is he an MTV Production Assistant or intern who decided to take advantage of a live broadcast to get his 15 minutes of fame? Is he actually a huge star in disguise, trying to blend in among those working behind the scenes instead of taking their usual place in the spotlight? Is he a date who got bored and went rogue?

I'm not sure if I want to know the answer. I prefer to think of this mysterious bearded, blonde man as a friendly VMAs spirit, popping in and out to keep us entertaining, much like Peeves in Harry Potter.

If he does choose to reveal his true identity, however, I hope it's in a grand way. The enigma should rush the VMAs stage, grab the mic, and dramatically reveal who he is and how he ended up at the VMAs. Is that so much to ask?
