Howie Mandel Lays Bare the Secret Behind his Talent Meter

Howie Mandel 640x360

It must be tough sitting there night after night determining who in America’s “Got Talent.” But the “America’s Got Talent” judge says he makes the tough decisions on a gut level…well, somewhat lower than the gut. Unseen by parents viewing, apparently Howie Mandel sits in his boxer shorts and with what he calls his “little talent meter” (before regretting using the word “little”) he has an instant sign of whether or not the performance was exciting.

“I think of it as my little talent meter. Well, I don’t know why I used to word ‘little, ” he confessed to the Daily News. One wonders if he got this idea from the controversial interviewing technique of disgraced American Apparel CEO Dov Charney that led to his ouster or if Charney got the idea from Mandel. But we should know Howie well enough to know when he is pulling our leg (watch those hands). For a second, though, you kinda believe it, especially as he elaborates, “We have a desk and you can’t tell. I will slip off my pants just to be comfortable. So sometimes when you see me, it’s sans pants.”

Well, we will see the shorts if he ever is excited enough to give an act a standing ovation.

Heidi Klum says she enjoys sitting next to the comic judge, and she hasn’t said a word about his boxer shorts. Or his little talent meter. “He makes me laugh all day long, ” said Klum. “People always think I don’t like comedians. That’s not true. They just have to be good like him.”
