Jordan Knight On The 'Thing' He Shares With His Fans

Jordan Knight developed a fiercely loyal fan base when he was just 14-years old. Nearly three decades later, he says they still share a special relationship.

He's on the show tonight, along with author Robert Harris.

George: When you were young you had to be everyone's boyfriend. You had to be 'the guy', right?

Jordan Knight: True. (laughs) I still .. you know... we kinda still have a little 'thing.' (laughs)

George: I can imagine that at some point that was exciting but at some point that had to be a really interesting prison to be in.

JK: No! I like it! It's still fun!

George: Yeah - but I imagine your brother would have struggled with it ... when he had to come out of the closet...

JK: Yeah - I was talking about that today. It must have been tough, I mean, back then. Now, he's out with it and he's always been fine with it, but would just be like 'why do I have to shout out I'm gay to the world? It's my business' ... But sometimes I'm like 'Jon, how do you get motivated before a show?' I mean, you look in the crowd and there's not a lot of guys out there! (laughs)
