If you don’t know the story, Timothy Poe faked being a war hero when he auditioned before Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and Sharon Osbourne on America’s Got Talent.
The verdict is out as to whether he was also faking a stutter brought on by battle wounds. America and the judges loved his story when he auditioned for the show, and it turns out, he was actually a pretty good singer. But when it got out that he lied, people got mad.
Keep reading for on Timothy Poe and his web of lies… after the jump.
After getting caught, Poe continued to defend himself. But then the evidence kept piling up, until Poe finally confessed that he didn’t receive the military medals that he previously claimed, admitting that it was simply “something stupid” he recently said.
It’s pretty insane and the lengths people will go to get on reality shows. You have to wonder why some people feel compelled to lie when they run the risk of being found out. Seriously, you can’t hide when you’re on national television!
