He interviews Neal McBeal, the Navy Seal from who BoJack "steals" a box of muffins at a supermarket. When the Hollywood "D" is stolen by BoJack he gets angry at the copywriter Randy that works the teleprompter and his overuse of alliterations. He is divorced from his ex-wife, Shannon, whom he repeatedly insults on-air, only to retract the insult immediately afterwards.
Tom seems to want to pay the most attention to pointless celebrity news and sees it as big news. He is often irritated by Randy's tactics but does get concerned when he passes out and he really does consider him "family".
- His nickname is a play on the Louisiana stew, Gumbo, the recipe that includes shellfish.
