Jon just wants to be an Average Joe.
Reality TV dad Jon Gosselin said he's living a "nightmare" and he wishes he could be a regular workaday guy like everyone else.
"I wish I had a 9-to-5 job instead of the nightmare I'm living," he told Usmagazine.com. "This is 24/7. I don't even want to do taping for the show anymore."
Gosselin said he has no choice but to shoot the wildly popular TLC show "Jon & Kate Plus 8" because it pays the bills -- and he's otherwise unemployed.

"I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work," he told Usmagazine.
The octodad was warned by the cable network last month that he needs to put the brakes on reveling in his new-found bachelorhood by cutting back on the booze-fueled nights out. TLC claimed he was in violation of his contract.
Jon is currently on an allowance and has to share his revenue with ex-wife Kate and there is some speculation the couple has already spent most of what they earned from the current season.
Gosselin announced on June 22 that he and Kate, his wife of 10 years, were getting a divorce.
Gosselin taped "Jon & Kate Plus 8" with his brook at the Lower Heidelberg Fire Company in Berks County, Pa. where the family erected a lemonade stand to raise money for the volunteer firefighters.
