Simon Cowell Was Once Offered $150,000 to Judge a Couple Having Sex
Simon Cowell recently stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers to chat with the host about everything from America’s Got Talent: Extreme to that time he was asked to judge a couple having sex. Cowell got candid about the weird encounter.
Simon Cowell Was Ask to Judge Couple’s Sex
Meyers asked Cowell if people on the street ever ask him to judge random talents. Cowell confirmed that he does, saying sometimes the requests are “very uncomfortable.” Like, for example, the time a couple wanted to pay him to watch them have sex.
“This is a true story,” he said. “A couple came up to me in a restaurant and said we’ll pay you X amount of dollars to watch them having sex and will I judge it? And I said, ‘Well, how much?’ and stupidly said no.”
Cowell estimated that their offer was around $150,000. He had a message for that couple in case they were watching the show, telling them, “I’ll do it.” Could this be Cowell’s newest talent show venture?
Cowell Talks About His Recent Injury
Cowell also addressed his latest electric bike accident. After breaking his back falling off one of the bikes in 2020, the judge recently broke his arm in a new accident. He said he’ll have the cast on for about another month, and the he’ll “be back on my bike again.”
Interestingly, Cowell isn’t the only AGT: Extreme judge who’s currently injured. A few days before Cowell’s broken arm, Travis Pastrana broke his pelvis performing a stunt. Cowell sent Pastrana a note saying they both have broken bones now, but Pastrana has “the better story.”
“There is kind of an irony on this show that two out of the three judges … are watching the show with broken bones right now,” Cowell said, adding that he still wishes he could perform the stunts he sees on the show.
Take, for example, David “The Bullet” Smith, who shot himself out of a cannon through a flaming ring. Cowell said if he hadn’t broken his back, he would have tried the stunt himself.
