In case you haven’t heard, we’re totally in love with Gorgeous Graham Bunn here at Wetpaint Entertainment. How can you not be?
With that in mind, you can imagine our absolute thrill when we sat down with the man himself to talk all about his fears, vices, guilty pleasures, and his charity, 46NYC. Take a moment to really get to know Michelle Money’s partner on Bachelor Pad Season 2. And get ready to swoon.
Wetpaint: What is the most embarrassing nickname ever given to you by a girlfriend?
Graham Bunn: Without having this bleeped out, probably honeybuns. A few of my girlfriends have called me honeybuns before, and that's just really cheesy and corny and embarrassing for a whole different reason that I would date someone that would call me that.
What is your biggest irrational fear?
My biggest irrational fear … well, I have a fear of heights, but I think that's pretty rational. I don't have a lot of irrational fears, I'm not scared of frogs or anything weird for no reason. I probably have too many rational and not enough irrational fears.
Who was your celebrity crush when you were a teenager?
My crush was Jennifer Love Hewitt growing up as a young kid. I know I'm not reinventing the wheel with that answer!
What TV show are you embarrassed to admit that you watch?
I'm going to refrain from saying The Bachelorette because I'm not embarrassed. I enjoy it and I think it's awesome. Um, I have actually been watching Famous Food because I wanted to check Jake out and see how he did on it. I'm a little embarrassed to say I watch that, but it's actually really entertaining and he's doing really well on it.
What is your naughtiest vice?
My naughtiest vice ... [laughs] … If I answer this one, someone is going to be insanely upset with me, so I'm going to have to pass …
OK, we don't want to get you into trouble …
Just kidding, Michelle! [laughs]
Flight or invisibility?
Even though you're afraid of heights?
Well, if you could fly then you'd never fall … hopefully. Invisibility, that just seems creepy to me, so I'll go with flight.
Kim, Khloe, or Kourtney Kardashian?
Kim, I'm sorry, Kim. [laughs] I'm a basketball player, she obviously likes athletes. I think we'd get along. She's not hard to look at so, yeah, Kim.
Boxers or briefs?
Neither. I wear jeans.
Commando it is!
Alright! [Editor's note: We had to pause for a moment to compose ourselves.] OK, when was the last all-nighter you pulled and what were you doing?
I pull three or four all-nighters every week just working. 46NYC takes up a great deal of time. One of our partners doesn't live here in New York so it's a lot of phone conferencing, a lot of email exchange, and a lot of effort goes into that. All-nighters are nothing new to me.
You used to play basketball … what was the weirdest thing you ever heard or saw in the locker room?
Yeah, The Man Code — shout-out to David Good — you don't talk about locker room issues publicly. A big shout-out to David and The Man Code, but we keep the locker in the locker room.
Noted! What is the most embarrassing thing a girl has convinced or inspired you to do?
Wow, you really came up with some good ones here! I've been convinced by girls to do some pretty embarrassing things. Michelle convinced me to do some pretty embarrassing things on the show, so I'll leave it at that. If you tune in, Michelle got me to do some things I'm not looking forward to, but I'm sure it'll be pretty entertaining for the fans.
East coast or west coast?
I'm an east coast guy. I enjoy visiting L.A., but I've tried living there and it didn't really work. I love New York, I love the energy here, I love the people here and I just love that New Yorkers respect hard work. It doesn't matter what you do — you could be a custodian, a cab driver, a bartender, an actor — whatever you want to be, and if you're working hard people in New York respect you, and I think that's an amazing trait for the greatest city in the world.
Bikinis or one-pieces?
Yeah, I'm a two-piece guy. Two-piece or no-piece. No onesies for me!
What's your go-to pick-up line that always works on the ladies?
Oh, man. Anyone that knows me knows I have zero game when it comes to picking ladies up, so I just usually fumble over myself, stutter a little bit, and then attempt to create a conversation. It never really goes well. But I'm fortunate enough to know I don't have game, so I never really fail in that regard too much. I usually meet people in group settings or become friends with someone first. Creating interest out of nowhere? Definitely not my talent. [Editor's note: We find that very hard to believe.]
