But it's not because you worked so darn hard to get there that being called big time I like what kind of won't settle.
It's a real I mean I mean people tell me I'm a celebrity but it doesn't feel like I'm a celebrity has to feel like the same guy and I'm a celebrity yeah.
Winston knows it I think you were born a celebrity I was the like -- -- but for me.
For me it's still weird you know I mean.
I guess people tell me I am and it's just it's just really weird when year when you're just a normal guy for 42 years and all of a sudden everything -- hits it.
It's it's hard for me to remember I'm a celebrity get me out of here you are from is -- -- Texas.
Well I I would leave the -- for a long time I was born and raised in Dallas.
Living -- at Texas for for about 1010 or twelve years -- and then move back to Dallas and in this heat and so I'm from that area -- the Dallas area.
It isn't true that you are related to somebody from who is one of the contestants on American Idol yes -- -- -- my cousin who was I believe -- got into the top ten.
The same year I was on America's Got Talent so he's kind of weird that that a reality show family yes exactly.

A hit song that was done by Rascal Flatts.
One of their number one hits it was on the on the charts for weeks and weeks and weeks and so some real predators.
So interesting is I'm watching now while you're doing this and and Winston is reacting.
Two things you're saying so it's not sure that men can't multitask is it.
What the army could not get -- -- you know what's interesting is that when you spend as much time as I have and I literally.
Have spent tens of thousands of hours rehearsing and practicing.
I kind of becomes second nature so so I don't even I honestly I don't notice it really instant when somebody is talking -- is looking at them sure whatever puppet I have in my hand.
-- -- so it's just a matter of so much so much rehearsal yeah.
-- had their practice and last night when you're talking to -- a moment ago Winston was undressing me with his.
-- -- -- well let me ask this.
I read somewhere that when you're fifth grade you were looking for a book forward.
An assignment for valentines -- well -- yeah outwit and of the assignment was to write paper on Valentine's Day.
And and it was the old card catalogs you know wasn't computer that would have been a computer -- probably wouldn't be eventual it was today.
But I overshot the NBA's -- Valentine's Day and hit ventriloquism and it was a book called ventriloquism for fun and profit.
And it's been profitable -- as it -- he hits very much.
Dressing profitable without we'll hear what it stood for how difficult how practice of -- the impersonation Steve are you driving your car and it is trying to work it all out there exactly what I do is I have ADV very very bad dvds so when I'm doing something that I don't like it bores me and it did.
That makes me and sea ice I practice controller was himself.
And then growing up.
I you know you would see somebody in the car and they would be at eighty -- at a -- -- releasing into the radio sure.
Well they can't look weird and I I didn't want to look weird so I would sit there and I'd be like.
You know what what I always sitting -- -- -- exact.
So -- was gave me a chance to sing to the radio and not look strange.
And at practice ventriloquism -- -- one of your greatest accomplishments I was gonna be upcoming you're gonna sing the national anthem.
