Jon Gosselin to begin male stripping career

The father featured in the reality show "Jon and Kate Plus 8" will begin his male stripping career on Saturday at Dusk in Atlantic City, New Jersey. 

According to a promo, tickets for Jon Gosselin's performance at Dusk begin at $40. For high rollers, fans can purchase a VIP package for $1,000, which includes 20 tickets and bottle service. 

The complex at Caesar's in Atlantic City has an $11 million price tag. 

Gosselin divorced his wife Kate in 2009, during the height of the couple's popularity. Following the divorce, John Gosselin issued a cease and desist letter in 2010 to TLC, forcing the show to stop filming for several years. During that time, Gosselin fought for custody for the couple's eight children. 

The show relaunched in 2014 without Jon Gosselin. 

Meanwhile, Gosselin has mostly stayed away from show business. He reportedly worked as a waiter at a restaurant in Pennsylvania. 

In 2015, Gosselin became a DJ in Atlantic City. That gig seems to have led Gosselin to his new career, which he begins on Saturday. 

"I'm an integral part of the show," Gosselin told ET. "Being part of something is a blessing. Since I joined Senate DJ I've felt like I belong to something and I'm not just out there on my own -- I feel as if I'm part of a fraternity or brotherhood."
