Men enjoy short-term fame on 'Springer'

(Continued)

As is typical with shows like “Springer,” Powell and his brother got in an altercation with Mier during the episode. Powell said he went on the show ready to fight so it wasn’t much of a surprise for him. He said it was fun, but he was disappointed at how much of the show was scripted.

“There was a lot of stuff I wanted to say but couldn’t and they made me say some things I really didn’t want to. I didn’t like that,” Powell said.

The episode finished without a positive resolution for Powell. Despite his attempts to woo Martin, she left the set with Mier and went back home to Illinois.

Powell, an auto mechanic who occasionally races cars at Anderson Speedway, said he acknowledges a level of embarrassment that comes with being on a show like “Springer,” and the outcome wasn’t the one he sought. Still, it’s an experience he wouldn’t change for anything.

“It was a blast,” Powell said.
