It might have been NBC who pulled together the photographs for the montage.
Apparently another story is claiming his ex-wife said he doesn't even stutter. And then another asked him to provide proof and that if injured by the enemy he'd have a purple heart. I dunno. That's just more sad that I can even imagine if he made that all up.
He also lied at some military event about being awarded the purple heart and bronze star.
What an amazing db!
I mean, I can almost, almost understand some guy at a bar drunk and exaggerating about his military service (not medals or injuries, but just service, etc.,) but to go on a nationally televised show, where your injury and service record are obviously going to be front n center since it's part of the story, it baffles me that the guy can be so stupid to think he could get away with it.
Unless he knew he would get caught but wanted to be infamous?
Crazy story all around.
hee hee hee.... Sergeant Bone....
The AGT producers say that they got the picture from the contestant.
Who apparently pulled the photo off a Government website. I'm curious to see how AGT handles this on the show. Will they talk about it or bury it? I say they talk about it...
They will either bury it and we'll never hear about the guy again on AGT (which is what I think will happen) or they will do a production of the revealing/confession of the lie and the producers ceremoneously booting him like they did with that guy on Idol.
I think they have to decide if they want to go for ratings with it, or if they feel it's better not to give the DB the publicity he craves... There's also the DB's lawyers who may have issue with the story being sensationalized. You're probably right... They may just bury it... I guess we'll see.
Either way, it's a win for AGT. It makes headlines and people hear about the story and probably say, "What's AGT?" then watch to see how it might play out. Win for them.
Idol didn't have much choice, since the contestant was expected to be competing that night. With AGT, they can just never mention him again. They've done it before with contestants who were sent to Vegas; a few seasons ago, the magicians The Pendragons appeared, and were put through to Vegas, but that was the last time they were mentioned.
You do realize they can't mop the stage between EVERY act, right?
sounded just like ed norton, jr in "Primal Fear"
Apparently he was in the National Guard and was in Afghanistan, but only for a month, after which he left because of an ear infection and refused to go back when that cleared up. Also he was injured, but it was during basic training, not combat and it wasn't a brain injury.
Despite the evidence, he's still claiming he's telling the truth. He says he accidentally sent AGT someone else's photo. His girlfriend is backing him up.
As of now, he's still in the contest. AGT hasn't kicked him out. I can't see how they can keep him in as there's no way he'll go through.
Good grief, you guys have short memories. There have been at least 2 threads linking to different sand drawing videos post hereon TCF. The best one I have seen was the Russian History show. Shorter bits like they had on the audition show isn't that great because there was only 3 scenes. When they go on for 8-12 minutes and have dozens of scenes, it's cool to see that one bit they drew 12 scenes and 4 minutes ago is still around.
Well. that didn't take long... although I think this season is the weakest implementation I've seen yet. I personally thought Team Illuminate had the best act in this genre.
I wonder what the ratings are. As of next week they are cutting it down to one hour a week.
The other option is that the stooge in the audience could have had a tapping or buzzing device in his shoe or on his leg where the person was transmitting the message to him in Morse code. Or I might have just watched that movie Casino too much.
If there were a stooge in the audience, surely those around him would have noticed he was speaking and, most likely, what he was saying.
The "mind reader" cannot have an unacknowledged accomplice because that person would be entitled to half the prize and have to be identified to the viewers/voters.
