Jon tells HollywoodLife.com that he’s exploring his options — and his plans may just shock you!
Now that Kate Gosselin has TWO reality shows in existence, it’s about time her ex-husband, Jon, had a project in the pipeline, as well. Well, guess what, BFFs? The octodad is already planning his next move — and, like it or not, he definitely plans on returning to your TV screen! So much for that 9-5 job he was thinking about…
“I’d like to get back into television. It would be nice to have a job on television again,” the 33-year-old former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at THQ’s E3 “Take No Prisoners” party in LA June 16.
But Jon is considering more than just another reality show. “I’m not so sure about reality from what I did. I’m just exploring my options right now, meeting with certain people with different ideas.”
One of those ideas? Prepare yourself, friends. Jon is even debating filling Simon Cowell’s shoes on American Idol — if the good people at Fox would have him, that is, given that he’s a dud when it comes to knowledge of music, that is. “I would consider it, but I don’t know anything about music! I would consider it, but it probably wouldn’t be my cup of tea, because I wouldn’t know how to judge or when to judge. I love watching [American Idol] though! I liked [Crystal] Bowersox. Overall, well-rounded but it’s America’s vote, not Jon Gosselin’s.”
Truer words could not be said, Jon.
As Jon says, to find out when and what his next project will actually be, “Stay tuned.”
