I'm not sure what I think of him, yet. What I do know is that he has a new TV show on NBC that I find fascinating.
Sometimes in any show where a family has experienced a tragedy money is given; people's lives are 'changed' through the payment of their vast medical bills, scholarships for their children's future education, mortgage payments, etc. Whether the show is Oprah, Extreme Home Makeover, Ellen, or some other show like that, people's lives are 'fixed' or made better with these gifts.
Obviously most of do this every day, without the aid of a tv show. I'm a bit sappy and love a real story about success, so I enjoyed the show. As one of my relatives has said, "there are a number of us in the family whose bladders are close to their tear ducts." We leak REALLY easily.
