>> the cure!
>>> here with us now editor of " town & country " jay fielding, he's studying up, because he's got the new issue. you've got it all right here.
>> he hasn't read it yet.
>> but he says it looks good.
>> there's interesting things in it. i realize some mice have been up to some very good work.
>> i'm studying up, i will tell you.
>> okay. leigh gallagher has got it all under control.
>> i'm studying this.
>> good, good, yes.
>> where would you like to start?
>> i don't know where to begin. this is the top 50 bachelors, but different age groups. you've got some aging, you know, elder statesmen on the list and you've included george clooney who is, i'll say, one of my favorite, as is bradley cooper , i'll say, but he's not on here, is he?
>> that's true. he is not. i think we were looking for, you know, to be a bit surprising to find a group that you wouldn't expect. eclectic, you know, through the " town & country " lens, so looking at anything from billionaires to hollywood scions.
>> give us some names.
>> clint eastwood 's who looks just like he did back in "datety har dirty harry " movies, and sawyer avery, three kennedys, conner, the one in the news the most but a couple of others who are interesting guys. sarkozy's son who is a deejay. watch out.
>> you have political people. reggie lowe.
>> that's fun.
>> and john favro.
>> obama's speechwriter who's a handsome smart dude.
>> you got tim tebow on the list!
>> tebow has no home right now, so maybe he can find a different kind.
>> do you know what's nice about this magazine, unlike others that we have on the show -- "gq" -- people are dressed.
>> never heard of it.
>> and nicely.
>> well, thank you very much. there's no "g" strings in there either.
>> no. huh-uh.
>> except on the guys.
>> he does have an article about the sexiest island on earth. maybe you could tell us, what is the sexiest island on earth.
>> what would your guess be, joe?
>> well, donny deutsch would say it's st. parts.
>> no. it's capri.
>> ah, there you go.
>> by far the sexiest. speaking of people who know how to dress well, if you go to capri, you're in the midst of it.
>> talk about it.
>> so, we did a piece. it's a fashion shoot that's also half travel, so, you know, we went there. we did an amazing shoot. went to the beautiful restaurants, the old world shoe makers. that made the sandals for jackie kennedy and, yeah, the beach clubs .
>> it's, you know, a fantasyland that comes to life especially for the italians in august. and, you know, if you haven't been there, you got to find a way to go.
>> have you been there?
>> i have. i have.
>> can i ask you a question?
>> where have you been to more, capri or sattaten island?
>> we know the answer to that, just look at him.
>> how about manhattan island ?
>> our manhattan island . some other pictures. where do you like to stay if you go there?
>> just to say the quistanap?
>> i scant pronounce it but i can stay there. let's talk about the guy on the cover. prince harry .
>> what did we learn about him that we don't already know?
>> there's always something to learn about. he went on a 15-hour bender is maybe what we call it.
>> yeah. he's on leave for four or five weeks and it's understandable and he's coming back from a pretty intense tour of duty as we know where he actually got behind his rifle and, you know, went to war. so, i think, you know, this guy's just -- seems to be one that as crazy as he gets sometimes, he's still the closest to everyone's heart i think in terms of being a royal who takes his job seriously but seems human and likes to have a good time and who can't like that?
>> so, how do we know this isn't sort of a pr push after the whole naked thing?
>> well, if that were the case, we would have had the ability to shoot him, photograph him, that is. so, you know, he doesn't do that very often. we're hoping one day he will, but, yeah.
>> to what degree do you think does the royal family try to kind of manage or contain him? he obviously likes to have fun. he does his own thing. how much is he kind of held back by that or is he just kind of given --
>> i'm sure they do everything they can, but he seems pretty wily. that's a very tight group that looks after everything that goes on there. but we've been living on the -- off this in the news for years, right? somebody always slips through the cracks and gets -- gets -- you know, does something silly or ridiculous. and, you know, i think the things that he does really seem quite like most young men of his age.
>> what was your take -- your main takeaway from the article, what your reporters figured out? or mice as you called them.
>> that he's -- he's a guy who's going to be, you know, in a part of our lives for a long time, and i think even though he's not going to have much chance of sitting -- wearing the crown so to speak, he's going to be somebody who helps transform the idea of the royal family in the years to come and is one who can really connect with the population and, you know, be somebody that is human and you can relate to.
>> yeah. one final question on the top 50 bachelors. the winklevoss twins, really?
>> a number of guys come with disclaimers.
>> what man doesn't come with a disclaimer, come on?
>> fair enough.
>> let's just end it there.
>> some occupations are suing people, so that said, you got to be careful. we get to talk about diplomats.
>> what are you doing, honey?
>> i'm going to sue somebody else. no, i'm saying if you have a winklevoss around your household. what about diplomats?
>> well, you know, let's talk about people who have jobs who are looking for bigger jobs, right? so, you know, the diplomat thing. the plum jobs, the plum clubs, it seems if you want the word ambassador in front of your name, there are two different categories. there's the guys who actually have to get danger pay and go into afghanistan and then there's the socially intense jobs in london and paris. and this horse race that's going on right now we're watching.
>> i want the latter.
>> no doubt.
>> it's nicer.
>> and i can fly back and forth. fantastic.
>> all right. the new february issue of " town & country " as my mother to say with the cover story of the top 50 bachelors is on the newsstands now. thank you.
>> thank you.
