Sept. 19 (UPI) -- It's been almost four years since the divorce that ended Jon Gosselin's reality television career, when his split from wife Kate effectively ended the TLC show, "Jon & Kate Plus 8."

Now, Jon Gosselin has finally settled into a new routine, though a far cry from the days when he lived in a $1.3 million home with his wife, twins, sextuplets and the constant presence of the camera crews.

Gosselin said he found it nearly impossible to reenter the workforce but that, after he hit rock bottom "about 20 times," he landed a job at a local restauant.

"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?'" he said. "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 now lives in a cabin in the woods in Pennsylvania, without Internet access or television, but despite all the notoriety and the fall from grace, Gosselin wouldn't take any of it back.

"I don't regret anything," the 36-year-old reveals. "You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today."
