"Hi, Welcome to Black Dog. My name's Jon. Ready to order?"
That's Jon Gosselin, 36, greeting diners at Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa. The father of eight kids and ex of Kate Gosselin tells Entertainment Tonight that it's "next to nearly impossible" for him to find a job.
"I've hit rock bottom like 20 times. I just bounce back."
He says, "No," he's not struggling to make ends meet. He likes being a waiter.
"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" he says. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me, so they're like 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.'"
He is happily living in a cabin "in the woods" with no TV and no Internet, reports ET.
But he has no regrets about anything. "You learn from your mistakes."
