Ted Williams, whose “Golden Voice” propelled him from homelessness to instant fame, will be featured in a reality show, TMZ reports.
Who didn’t see this coming?
The site says that Williams, whose dulcet tones catapulted him off a highway ramp and into the national spotlight after Doral Chenoweth III, a video journalist from the Columbus Dispatch videotaped him talking, will start filming in a couple of weeks.
(That’s right – this YouTube sensation owes his instant fame to a newspaper journalist. Can we get a shout-out for our print brethren at the Columbus Dispatch? OK, we digress.)
Anyway, the show will be called “Second Chances at Life,” and will feature his story along with those of other people who somehow arrive at Act 2 in their own lives.
Williams’ instant success story hasn’t been a fairy tale, of course. After the initial flood of attention and job offers for voice work came a short-lived stint in rehab. Williams told the Columbus Dispatch it all happened “a little too fast.”
Update: want a T-shirt? Say something NICE. I’m tired of the negative comments! Pleasant comments will be entered into a random drawing.
