Howie Mendel


You know him on "America's Got Talent"

Howie is one of the Judges that have OCD where he have a fear of germs that affected his life resulting to never shake anyone's hands with his bare hand and even shaking off his head hair to make him feel more clean.

One time only

On May of 2015, A certain hypnotist by the name of Chris Jones came on and Howie was the volunteer for the hypnotist act. Chris hypnotize Howie into thinking he had gloves on his hands. Chris then ask Howie to shake his hands while Howie being in the influence of "wearing gloves", after that Howie began shaking each of the 3 judges' hands that surprised them as this is the first and only time that Howie Mandel shook with his bare hands (without using hand sanitizer).

The act itself
