After a hit TV show, followed by an ugly divorce, Jon Gosselin has a new career waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.

Entertainment Tonight” paid a visit to Gosselin’s town, where the former “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star now lives after moving out of his $1.3 million Pennsylvania home when he broke up with Kate Gosselin several years ago. Now, he admits that he is having difficulty finding work and is apparently living in a cabin in the woods with no Internet and no TV.

“At first I was nervous because I was like, ‘How are people going to react?’” Gosselin said in the interview. “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.’”

Still, Gosselin says he has no regrets, despite having hit rock bottom “twenty times.”

“I don’t regret anything,” he says. “You learn from your mistakes. That’s what builds you to who you are today.”
