Steve Wilkos' Head

SLAMMED with Metal Bowl

In Talk Show Brawl

2/13/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Steve Wilkos
was literally BOWLED OVER during a recent taping of his talk show -- after taking a metal bowl straight to the head when a fight broke out among his guests ... and TMZ has the footage.

Sources connected to the show tell us, the former "Jerry Springer" bodyguard was hit just above the eye and temporarily lost his vision -- but ultimately, there was no serious injury.

The fight erupted at a taping this week during a segment called "My daughter tried to poison me" ... shocker.

We're told the bowl -- a prop on the set -- actually has a dent where it hit him. The bowl has since been bolted down so as to prevent future bowl-related injuries.

When will people learn: bowls aren't the answer.

I have to laugh because he is such a bully towards those teens. They are not only there being publicly humiliated and rejected by their parents, he gets in their face and yells and intimadates them with his size. Then he sends them off to some kind of jail.

This is not a pleasant show to watch. It is inevitable that one of them will fight back, if they are belligerant to begin with. He reminds me of a bad cop.

No idea who he is but LMAO off that he got knocked the fug out by a needless and dangerous prop on the set of his own low-life confrontational he-said/she-said 'talk' show! And this guy is ex security muscle from the Jerry Springer show!? Duh!!! Not to bright, huh?

Excuse me Steve ... did you ever hear the adage Lay Down With Dogs, Wake Up With Fleas? Take a good look at your show. I rest my case.

If you look at the two security guys there, it looks like they think it is funny at first. She totally knocked him down, while being held down by a security guard. It was like David tking out Goliath.

The security guard had the girl in a bear hug grip and somehow she grabbed the bowl and slug it from behind and hit him square in the head.

It kindn of doesn't even make sense. It is almost like that was a set up that the security team wanted it to happen. Why did the guard run at and grab the girl, but let her have her arms free to sling a bowl?

That Steve looks about 6'5" and 300 lbs.

That standing up during the show is lame. Doesn't make the show different. It's still the Jerry Springer Show, but he's on vacation and chrome dome is filling in.

"The bowl has since been bolted down so as to prevent future bowl-related injuries." - But did they bolt the table down too? Just sayin'... that would be some funny sh*t if he next gets clobbered with a table with a bowl bolted to it!
