Tyler Scheuer, a 2017 graduate and founder of Tyler’s Amazing Balancing Act, will be a featured contestant on TBS’ “The Go Big Show” 9 p.m. Thursday.
Scheuer’s extreme talent is balancing objects such as 10-foot ladders, bicycles and chairs on his nose and chin. He is competing with other performers with over-the-top acts for a $100,000 grand prize. Bert Kreischer hosts the show with celebrity judges Rosario Dawson, Snoop Dogg, Jennifer Nettles and Cody Rhodes. The show’s first episode had an audience of 3 million viewers.
Scheuer, a physical education major from Newton Township, Pennsylvania, developed Tyler’s Amazing Balancing Act into a halftime show and full-time business when he was a PBA student. He turned his childhood hobby into a career at the encouragement of Jennifer Fonseca, assistant director of career development. He has performed at games for the Philadelphia Phillies, Minnesota Timberwolves, Florida State and numerous other college halftime shows around the country.
