I guess that there might be some people out there who do but I do not know one single person who does not roll their eyes at even the mention of his name. He and Sam Newman are the two most annoying people on TV, followed closely by Karl Stefanovic. Karl Stefanovic won the Gold Logie you might argue, IMO that verifies my opinion. Any award that allows multiple voting is going to be skewed. Eddie is a "local celebrity" and is pushed by 9 as some kind of National Icon. Everything he touches turns to crap, he's a waste of space.
As I said I can take Eddie Maguire or leave him. It sounds like he makes your blood boil so I would recommend that you strictly avoid him if at all possible. It may be good for your blood pressure.
Personally I cannot stand Sam Newman. Therefore I refuse to watch anything he is involved with, so problem solved.
