A reporter for Fox 5’s sister station in Pennsylvania was interviewing people at The Wayne County Fair in Honesdale when she ran across Noah Ritter.
“Apparently, I’ve never been on live television before,” the 5-year-old said. “Apparently sometimes I don’t watch the news because I’m a kid, and apparently every time grandpa gives me the remote after Powerball.”
Noah then launched into a description of the ride.
“All you do is get dizzy, and I’ve never, ever been on live television,” Noah said. “Apparently, I already went down the ‘Super Slide.’ When I went down … I was scared half to death. I just freak out,” he said, handing the microphone back.
It was a show-stopping interview that “apparently” made the little boy a big star, including on Good Morning America.
So what does Noah think about going national? WNEP caught up with him at his grandparents’ house in Wilkes-Barre to find out.
“It was great, but apparently I was so embarrassed. I was like this embarrassed,” he said. “Because apparently, oh, now, now I’m just using the words that I used when I was filmed at the county fair.”
“Everything’s been overwhelming,” said Noah’s grandfather Jack Borowski. “We went to the fair and we got interviewed and everything unraveled from there.”
“Where did you learn the word ‘apparently?'” a reporter asked Noah.
“I don’t know, from my mom, maybe?” Noah replied.
And as it turns out, this soon-to-be kindergartener has a few other favorite adverbs.
“Seriously, sometimes I always fail, seriously,” Noah said.
“Can I be honest with you? You’re not failing at all today because you’re a national superstar today.”
And since Noah confessed earlier he does not watch the news but does watch Powerball, has the family ever won?
“No,” said Noah’s grandfather.
“Apparently, the woman who is giving us lottery tickets is jinxing us,” Noah said.
Either way, Noah Ritter is winning big.
