Apparently Former Reality Star Jon Gosselin Works at a T.G.I. Friday’s Now — Here’s Why

He actually has a good reason for taking the job.

Earlier today news broke that Jon & Kate Plus 8 star Jon Gosselin is hard at work in a T.G.I. Friday’s in Lancaster, PA. But don’t worry, he isn’t strapped for cash. He took the job to help a friend out.

I took the job at Friday’s because my friend needed help in the kitchen for the sauté line,” Gosselin told E! News. “I’ve always been passionate about cooking, and I ended up donating that paycheck to various children’s charities in my area.”

His cover was blown when a fellow cook shared a photo of the former reality star, prompting him to explain himself. And although DJing is his true passion, Gosselin plans to continue working in the kitchen as often as he can.

“For the first time in a long time, it was a job that I had that wasn’t about what was good for Jon. I was helping someone else and it felt good.”
