Jon Gosselin is working as a male stripper: ‘Check it out, my big debut’

You know that joke about eating bad food and wanting to share the experience? “This tastes awful. Here, try it.” I think I first heard Chris Rock do that bit, but it’s pretty universal. We want to pass the awfulness on so our friends will know how we feel. So this post is me being overly familiar with you and transferring my disgusted face, which I’m still making by the way. If you’re ready, although I doubt anyone could truly be prepared for this, here’s the new flyer for Jon Gosselin’s gig as a stripper, allegedly, at an Atlanta club. He did not get buff or even attempt to get buff for more than a day or two, judging by this latest photo of him.

Technically this is SFW (safe for work) but the images it will put in your mind are not.

E! has more on Jon’s maybe-debut:

[Jon Gosselin] has landed a new gig, this time as a stripper performing with the ‘Untamed Male Revue’ out of Dusk Nightclub in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Gosselin is set to take the stage for a one-night only event on April 1, and from the looks of photos shared to social media, he’s not holding anything back.

“No plans next weekend? Check it out, my big debut…? AC, Caesars, Dusk, untamed, Saturday April 1st!” he tweeted to his 2,000 followers.

E! News spoke with the 39-year-old about his latest venture, and why he’s ready to take the stage in a different kind of light.

Gosselin shared, “Yes, I’m an integral part of the ‘Men Untamed’ on April 1…”

According to Gosselin, he also now runs promotion and DJ’s for the Senate DJ’s at Dusk Nightclub at the Dusk Complex.

[From E! Online]

This means he’s just DJing right? He’s been working as a (piss-poor) DJ for a while so that would make more sense. “Integral part” means he’s going to be manning the turntable while more qualified dudes strip, I would assume. If you check out the website for this venue, they do feature typically super-fit stripper guys and obviously Jon Gosselin is not qualified for that job. (Nor is he qualified to be a DJ judging from the clips he’s posted to social media, but that’s a more forgiving job.) This is a clever attempt at marketing I would assume, and he did hedge it with ellipses and a question mark. I would also assume that this won’t get more women to show up at all. If anything it will keep customers away. I know I wouldn’t want to see Jon um, DJ.

    It’s the end of the world as we know it. And I feel fiiiiiiine. Just kidding. I feel pretty sick. *gag*

    Okok DJ’ING!!! heart attack averted.
    Let him do his thing…make that money booboo, pay for those kids. Living with Kate scarred him and put him in a perpetual man-child stage.

  5. Boxy Lady says:

    April Fools joke?

  6. Patricia says:

    JG is a complete douche, his personality has shown that. But why the extreme level of body shaming in this article?
    A friend of mine just started work as a burlesque dancer. She’s no more fit than Jon. She’s overweight and doesn’t strive to be fit. I wouldn’t want anyone to talk this way about her. She’s showing off a round, soft body that is beautiful. You don’t have to have a rock-hard body to show yourself off.

    Jon’s personality though… THERE’S the major turnoff.

    • Kiki says:

      I understand the body shaming point Patricia, but JG is just pathetic. He has kids for crying out loud. He could go back to college and become a Accontant or Lawyer or any dignified career for his heart desires or something, but DJing and you can’t do that. He has to resort to something that he knows nothing about like Stripping. I know that College is expensive but he could at least look for a real job like any normal person and speaking of money, what happen to money that promotes Ed Hardy crap trucker clothing?

      Leave DJing and Stripping for the young who doesn’t have any children.

    • AreYouForReal? says:

      Oh. My. God. It’s really not that serious. Why have lawyers go to law school? We can just look up laws on the internet. Can we maybe agree that people go check out strippers as eye-candy (and, yes, sadly, some sort of objectification). But if you can’t enjoy the sight, then why go?

      • Kiki says:

        @AreYouForReal. Do you want to see your father stripping or your mother doing lap dances on unknown strangers?

      • AreYouForReal? says:

        @Kiki – My comment wasn’t directed at you – it was just coincidence that you happened to have “law school” in your comment. I was saying that stripping relies on being visually attractive, it’s sort of a job requirement, so pointing out that he’s not attractive is not “shaming,” just being truthful.

      • Luca76 says:

        Doesn’t he have experience in IT?

      • V4Real says:

        @Kiki There are plenty of young strippers that have kids. I know for a fact that there are strippers that we’re 21, 22 and so on who had kids and they were exotic dancers.

        The same could be said for actors to a certain point. Do you want to see your father or mother who is an actor kissing and being felt up by another actor who is not your mother or father.

      • Kiki says:

        @AreYouForReal- Oh I apologize for my comment. I thought you were just make “smart” comments towards me and what I have written by saying “smart” stuff when I was just making my point. I apologize. I just get stupid remarks from people who don’t like (or respects) my opinions but calling me names.

        So once again I am so sorry,

      • Kiki says:

        @V4real, What I am really saying is that he was a dignified man who had a dignified job before he became a reality star. Did your friends have children or before they were exotic dancers?

      • Dolkite says:

        If you were in court and you told the judge you wanted to represent yourself because “I can look up the laws online,” that judge would tell you to take any lawyer you can get, even a broke-dick public defender. Lawyers not only know the law, but good ones have the experience to know how far it can be stretched.

      • AreYouForReal? says:

        @Dolkite – I was being sarcastic :-/

      • V4Real says:

        @Kiki These dancers had the kids before they were dancers. That”s why some of them were there. Easy money to support the kids and themselves. I even knew women who were married and stripped for a living. One dancer loved the fact that she danced at night so she could attend her kids school meeting’s during the day and be home when her child came home from school.

    • aang says:

      I have friends that do burlesque as well. They perform in troupe at venues around the city. All ages and sizes. Not really the same as “stripping” but I get your point. Body shaming is no good.

  7. Gene123 says:

    what did we do to deserve this? why are we being punished?

  8. cindy says:

    No no no no no noooooo………

  9. Shambles says:

    LMAO I live in Atlanta and I may go see this just to get drunk and laugh at what our world has become, and to ogle the man booty that does NOT belong to Jon

    • CariBean says:

      I think Atlanta is an error by CB, the flyer notes Atlantic City, as does the E! quote.

      Sorry Atlantic City, not sure what you did to deserve this.

  10. Kiki says:

    They better not play “Pony” by Genuwine for Jon Gosselin when he’s stripping “alledgedly” (I hope). I will barf, cough, barf some more. Jon Gosselin is a waste of a man with little dignity he has left in him.

    YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED. Leave that for the fine, sexy male strippers. Besides, you have mouths ( 8, I presumed) to feed.

    • detritus says:

      they’d best not ruin Pony like that.

      He can have Rebecca Black’s Friday. That’s all I’m willing to give him.

  11. Nancy says:

    And here I thought I knew “every little thing” about Gosselin. His ex Kate never let him one up her, she’ll probably start giving lap dances.

    • Desi says:


      It hasn’t even happened yet, but I think I speak for the consensus.

  12. Arock says:

    **lights dim, cue stage fog, strobe lights come on**
    Announcer with echo box on,
    “This April 1sssssttt…Coming to Atlantic City, Neeeeeeww Jeeeerseeyyyy….*voice lowers*-
    The Jokes on Yoooouuuu!!!!!!!! Jon Gosslin is DOING ANYTHING FOR MONEY!!!
    Yes ladies, your least wild dreams come true, it’s Jon gosslin without a shirt behind a drum deck. Be there!!!!”

  13. Dlo says:

    Oh thank you! I am very sick and have been for over a week. I have to go back to work today, still coughing wheezing and can’t breath. This made me giggle!!!! I soooo needed that!

  14. HK9 says:

    Truth is stranger than fiction.

  15. Malificent says:

    Wasn’t Jon originally in IT? Just like Kate originally had a real profession as a nurse. He’s probably way behind on the technology, but wouldn’t it be better to catch back up on that and get a job that pays pretty well and has a bit of dignity?

    • Kiki says:

      @ That what I said. Although I didn’t know he was in IT, but I have said earlier why doesn’t he have a real profession that actually pays money and have dignity.

      This is an April Fool’s Joke, right? I hope it is.

    • SusanneToo says:

      That wouldn’t score the crappy reality show he’s probably hoping for.

    • Lady D says:

      Maybe he can’t afford dignity?

  16. Desi says:

    Something tells me nothing about this man is “big,” least of all his latest heave-inducing shot at relevance.

    • kNY says:

      I remember way back when right after the cheating scandal broke on the news – there was a gossip site that said that Kate told one of her friends that she never thought Jon would cheat because he’s so small. If you know what I mean. I never forgot that despite all the brain bleach.

    • Pinetree13 says:


  17. Juluho says:

    That’s a no.

  18. michelle says:

    Think i just threw up in my mouth!

  19. SusanneToo says:

    My eyes were blurry and I thought it said Check it out, my big butt.

  20. Adrien says:

    April 1st? Good luck to that.

  21. Pinetree13 says:

    Jon you’re 39 with a zillion kids. Stop and get a real job please. You’re the one that complained about the spot light so why are you still chasing infamy?

  22. Tan says:

    Eww and all that but still he is moving his ass and doing some work, whatever it is.
    Considering the grand grifter family in white house or that celeb guy with debts and 5 kids, he sounds like an angel

  23. adastraperaspera says:

    This guy.

  24. Abby says:


    That’s all I came over here to say.

  25. Bunbun says:

    I feel sorry for New Jersey.

  26. Char says:

    Gross gross gross gross gross!! I read about this yesterday somewhere else & that article said he was doing some type of burlesque show? Not that I’d pay to see him do remotely anything close to stripping.

  27. Devon says:

    Kate says he got a tiny 3″ baby weenie lol maybe he can stuff his bikini too small it’s a Shame!! Inchworm

  28. Jeanette says:

    I guess this makes me a dinosaur, but I do not understand the whole DJ’ing thing. I thought these people got paid to play other artist’s music? Like they stand at a computer and que up songs for people to dance to at the club, but like a disc jockey on the radio they announce the song and say something about whats happening at the time where they are. So why do they put out their own albums? Then there is the whole mixing thing, they mix other peoples music and suddenly its theirs? I don’t understand at all.

  29. MyHiddles says:

    If I had paid to watch actual male dancers I would nope TF right outta there and demand a refund if this greasy meatball came out.

  30. Rubber Ducky says:

    May this be an April Fool’s joke to bring in the punters. No one needs to see THAT.

  31. Lady Rain says:

    I can’t wait to see what Jon is working with onstage…said no one ever.
