9 kids..Was he wealthy before he went broke or was he just dumb and created children he couldn't support? Having 9 kids is ridiculous he may have a good voice but i wouldn't support the bum. He should do Planned Parenthood commecials and Trojan ads

It seems everytime we (the "common" folk)take a liking to someone there tends to be a big let down in store. Either the media hypes the story SO FRIGGIN much and they celebutize him/her to where we do not even recognize them anymore (Susan Boyle), or the person themselves turns out not to be what we thought at all! He seems like a genuine guy. I hope nothing comes out (which they are DIGGING AS WE SPEAK) that we find out he is a fraud. I have no idea what the ages of his children are but I would hope he did everything he could to support them before things had got so bad (having nine children to support will do that!). But so far he has my heart and good wishes. Please don't be another flight attendant Slater!!!! I am trying SO hard not to lose faith in people! Oh, and I will never forget what Hollyweird did to those poor kids from Slumdog Millionare! Gave them everything on a gold platter and as soon as the red carpet was rolled up BACK TO THE GUTTER! Be careful Ted! Stay a humble and good person.

Absolutley fantastic, People make mistakes and he deserved a second chance. He percevered through all his mistakes to come back for this one chance. God bless him he deserves it. When its all said and done its through the persons character that will determine success, he never gave up on his chances and because of the internet and god he was granted that one wish

O.K. So this guy gets a HUGE break...He is a crack addict....Lets see after he gets that first paycheck , how long it takes him to get back on crack, if indeed he was ever off. I say he owes the state or states that his 9 kids live in, since without a doubt the baby momma or momma were getting money from the gov. I'm all for a happy ending to a hard luck story, but I think this is a crock !!!

nstead of being reasonable, they will cream him on the back child support and he'll be back on the street with noone better off.

Yes, Rex, it's "unreasonable" to expect a man to pay to support his children instead of becoming a drug addict. It's the state who should pay that support, i.e., we who pay taxes, right? Maybe his kids would have "love for him" if instead of being a drunk and a drug addict, he'd kept his career and supported them. And if child support is too costly, don't father 9 children! It's not like he got to 9 and then suddenly said, "Wow, this is expensive." Expensive kicks in at ONE kid!
