High Pitch Erik stopped by to beg Howard for a job--and claimed, despite all evidence to the contrary, that he'd lost weight: "I guarantee you I weigh less than Tim Sabean. I swear to God."
Howard dismissed the shtick ("You're disgustingly fat. You're obese.") and some horrible interviews Erik had conducted outside AGT. Over wind-blown clips from Erik's hand-held recorder, Howard laughed: "There's nothing entertaining or any--no one cares. … I don't know what you're doing here."
Desperate to find an interesting angle, Howard looked down at the pre-interview notes, pointing to a particularly sordid detail about Erik and his apartment building's shared bathrooms: "He jerks off in the shower that other people have to use."
Erik said it was "just easier" to masturbate in the shower, adding that he's always sure to "wipe it off with Clorox bleach." Asked if he masturbated while thinking of men, Erik shook his head: "I'm thinking about myself.
Kelly Ripa's 344LB Soulmate
Erik later admitted that he also masturbated to a mental image of Kelly Ripa, because, in addition to being beautiful, the pair have "the same personality." Howard thought Erik was neither bright nor bubbly: "What do you think's more insulting--that he jerks off to Kelly Ripa or that he says he has the same personality as her?" Still, Howard hoped Erik's fantasy might come true: "I would pay millions to see this happen."
Butt (Paste) Buddies
In an even more bizarre turn, Erik confessed to recently asking his neighbor, Joey Boots, to help him apply a cream called Butt Paste to his asscrack: "Because I couldn't do it on my own. Not with a Q-Tip." Erik claimed it was just a one-time application, but Howard had his doubts. Howard100 News anchor Jon Leiberman said he'd once asked Erik and Joey to mime the scenario for him: "They had it down. It almost appeared as if they had done this multiple times. … [Joey] said he believed Erik got a little bit aroused."
