Dorenbos says he became close with other contestants like Lincoln Bridge, Sal Valentinetti, and yes, the viral sensation Tape Face.


“I love Tape Face, he’s one of my favorite people,” said Dorenbos. “And Sal, Sal’s really cool.”

What about Tape Face at Wing Bowl 25?

“He would actually love it,” Dorenbos said. “He’d be like where have I been my whole life and how come nobody has ever invited me.”


America’s Got Talent said the voting among the final three contestants was the closest ever.

Did Dorenbos think he won?

“Before they said I didn’t win?” he joked. “Yeah, I did. I did. Then I also said, you know what if it doesn’t work out win or lose there’s nothing I would have changed. I’m really proud of the material I picked and for the Finals I’m really proud of that piece.”
