"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" Gosselin told Entertainment Tonight. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me...they're like 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"
Gosselin explained that following his messy divorce from Kate, which ended the TLC series, it was nearly "impossible" to re-enter the workforce. But Gosselin remains positive about his situation. "I don't regret anything," Gosselin explained. "You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today. I've hit rock bottom like 20 times, and then I bounce back again."
With only the income from waiting tables, Gosselin now lives without internet or television in a simple cabin the woods. He also revealed he does not pay any type of child support, but contributes in his own way. "[Kate and I] both support [the children] financially because she takes care of school and all that stuff, but I take care of the exact same things she takes care of," he said. "I buy their own groceries. They have their own groceries at my house, their own bedrooms, their own stuff. It's doubled."
