If you watch TMZ, you may not know his name — you simply know him as the blond surfer dude.
His name is Max Hodges (just in case you’re wondering.)
And after being with the TV show since the beginning, Max called it quits on Friday. In iconic Max style he tweeted, “Last day at TMZ. 8 years, been fun. Not sure what’s next #keepontruckin#letsparty.”
Max made not washing your hair an art — and he successfully interjected sexual innuendo in almost every story he pitched.
The former fashion model started his TV career as a runner at Extra and when Harvey Levin started TMZ, he snatched Max right up making him one of the most famous characters in Harvey’s circus.
The long-haired surfer already has a job offer from The Dirty’s Nik Richie. Nik tweeted, “Max come to the dark side. I got you.”.
