When asked by Fox News how he felt about the fame he’s acquired, Mountain Man seemed apathetic. “I started a little too late in life to ever be excited (about the fame), but as I go through everyday life like going to Walmart, a trip that should only take twenty minutes, can turn into two hours.” He’s also constantly asked for photos and autographs. He doesn’t hate that part either. He told the network, “Everybody’s got camera phones these days and they want autographs and photos. It’s a fulfilling feeling.”
