Jon Gosselin Works At T.G.I.Fridays Now, Because ‘He Loves to Cook’

tgi fridays2009 America’s least favorite human, Jon Gosselin is now cooking at a T.G.I.Fridays in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, according to an exclusive on Entertainment Tonight. Up until now Gosselin was mainly known for his reality TV show, divorcing his ex wife Kate, with whom he has eight children, and spending the subsequent six months partying.

He told ET “I only work there 8 hours a week, because I like to do it. Why can’t I work at a restaurant? I like to cook.” Supposedly, he’s been working there for about a month but left after a photo of him in the kitchen leaked. He said he was doing it because his “buddy needed help.”

It’s also not his full-time gig, and he says he gives all of his paychecks to charity, though he didn’t mention where. The rest of the time he’s deejaying in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, where he has a residency at a nightclub.

He plans to take a two week break and then hopes to go back to being a line cook at the chain. “I’m so thankful TGI Fridays hired me as a cook — just as me, not the reality TV me. They respect what I do. It’s a passion of mine,” he told ET.
