Gary Wilde is the devilishly handsome, egocentric and an executive producer and former host of the television dance show, Shake It Up, Chicago! and host of "Dance, Dance, Chicago!". He tends to take credit for what other people do and is a bit self-involved at times. However when it comes down to it, he usually ends up doing what is right. He is portrayed by R. Brandon Johnson.
He has a tendency to forget people's names ("Hook It Up"), and has tried multiple times to get Oprah to like him at one of his parties, though she never does. He also invited Rocky and CeCe to one of his parties only to have them work as waitresses ("Party It Up"). He is shown to possibly love Georgia and Mary. He's similar to Ryan Seacrest from American Idol and Mario Lopez from ABDC. He is funny, wacky, silly, and "Wilde!"
