I Almost Respect This Guy
Yahoo- For Judge Joe Brown, he pretended to be a drunk gypsy clown who trashed a bathroom at a kid’s birthday party. On The Trisha Goddard Show, he played Eddie the Trucker, a discount lothario who ran up $70,000 in debts by bedding hookers and playing the lottery. For Unfaithful, a show produced by Oprah Winfrey‘s OWN, he was an international security expert who was cheating on his girlfriend — who was also cheating on him. And on The Sit-Down, a show in which ex-mafioso Michael Franzese mediates disputes over dinner, he played a mope whose best friend had seduced his girlfriend and crashed his car.
In just a few months, Tarr had become one of the most prolific television hoaxers in U.S. history, merrily running an insurgent’s war against an industry seemingly immune to shame. He was fueled by a hodgepodge of intellectual challenge, a dissident’s sense of humor and, yes, a quest for some measure of fame.
Ken Tarr, huh? Well, I almost respect you. Love the enthusiasm, love the idea, don’t love the commitment level. Hoaxed 8 shows in 5 different cities in 5 months and then stop? Where’s the momentum? Where’s the dedication? You could’ve been a star, you could;ve been something! Everyone knows the fame is in American Idol and Survivor. You should’ve pretended to be a ten year old girl belting out House of the Rising Sun, or even a gay man from Rhode Island who wins the first ever Survivor! I don’t know why you stopped, but it would’ve been epic if you compiled all of these hoaxes into one film and released it’s wrath upon modern day reality T.V. burying it once and for all for the good of mankind and all that is humane…instead you stop short for your fifteen minutes of fame and then proceeded to admit it was for fame. Rook move. You were killing it, master of his craft, top of the reality T.V. hoax world and then you left the game too soon. Shame
P.S. I’m no super model but why are you flashing your belly chub in my face. It looks like your expecting something of me and, sorry, I’m just not willing to do it.
