Reality couples often have their ups and downs, and after a turbulent split from Kate Gosselin, the mother of his eight children, Jon Gosselin is getting back to the simpler things.

The former “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star confirmed to ET that he has been working as a waiter at a restaurant in Pennsylvania.

Jon says he gets recognized as “the guy,” but says it’s fun talking to people and he wouldn’t take back his decision to sign on for the TLC series.

“I don’t regret anything,” he said. “You learn from your mistakes. That’s what builds you to who you are today.”

Though he worked as a director of sales and promotions before the show, it was nearly “impossible” for him to find work afterward and he found himself broke.

The ex-TV star also opened up about his living situation, sharing that he lives in a cabin in the woods without internet or television.
