Jon Gosselin is working as a waiter in Pennsylvania

BECKERSVILLE, Pa., Sept. 19 (UPI) -- Former reality TV personality Jon Gosselin says he is now working as a waiter at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.

Gosselin starred with his wife and children on the hit TLC series "Jon & Kate Plus 8," but the couple fought constantly and divorced in 2009 after Jon cheated on Kate. The show was renamed "Kate Plus 8" after Jon left but it was quickly canceled.

People.com said Kate and the eight Gosselin children remained in the family's $1.3 million Pennsylvania home while Jon moved out and is living in a cabin in the woods without television or the Internet.

He told "Entertainment Tonight" the notoriety he earned from "Jon & Kate" made it "next to near impossible to find work," so he took a job as a waiter.

"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" Gosselin told "ET." "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.'"

Despite his reversal of fortune, Gosselin said he has no regrets.

"You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today," he said.
