Jon Gosselin Explains Why He’s Working at TGI Friday’s


By: Jon Corrigan

A recent report from TMZ revealed that Jon Gosselin is working at TGI Friday’s, leaving many to wonder what happened to his reality TV money?

While the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 alum isn’t flourishing financially, it turns out he took the restaurant job to help a friend.

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

Gosselin is pursuing a career as a DJ, but plans on working at TGI Friday’s whenever his “professional schedule” allows him to do so.

Gosselin and his ex-wife Kate Gosselin divorced in 2009, leaving her with primary custody of their eight children and Jon financially crippled by legal fees.

It’s estimated that despite making $22,500 per episode of Jon & Kate Plus 8, Gosselin’s net worth is hovering around $10,000.
