Springer Security Guard Turns Host On Spin-Off Show

CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Steve Wilkos is best known as head of security for The Jerry Springer Show, but now he’s following in his boss’ footsteps.

The beefy bald bodyguard will be starring in his own unnamed “Springer-esque” series in September and says he’s prepared for any chaos that will ensue on air.

Wilkos insists his show won’t be the same format as Jerry Springer’s, but says many guests will be people who have asked him for help during his 16-year stint at Springer.

Says Wilkos: “The guests will be pretty wild and the situations will be intense. The difference is that I’ll really be getting in these bad guys’ faces and changing their attitudes.”

If a fight should break out on the show, Wilkos says he’ll channel his experiences as a former Marine, Chicago police officer and security guard to stop fists from flying.

Although there will be security guards on set, Wilkos promises he won’t expect Springer to do any of it.

He jokes, “I don’t think Jerry would be too good at that. But who knows, maybe I’ll let him dance on my stripper pole instead.”
