“Being able to turn on the TV and see my face (on the ‘The Allen Brotherz Reality Show’) brings a mix of emotions. It seems like almost every day someone says, ‘Hey, didn’t I see you on that show last night?’ And it makes me the happiest person in the world to know that people actually enjoy what I like to do.”
