    Jon Gosselin Waiting Tables in Pennsylvania, Living Simply in Cabin

    Jon Gosselin probably isn't making as much waiting tables as he did as a reality star, but he's still paying the bills.

    Yes, the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star now works as a server at Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa. The 36-year-old father of eight told Entertainment Tonight it was "impossible" to find work after his brush with fame, but he's doing OK in the restaurant business.

    "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.'"

    He now lives in a cabin "in the woods" without TV or internet access. He admitted to hitting rock bottom "about 20 times" since he and Kate split in 2009, but says, "I [party] now on a different level."

    "I don't regret anything," he added. "You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today."
