I didn't know about the minister part either. I thought something else was going to be mentioned. :lol:

Are you talking about the male stripper part?

In the discussion over at SoapsWEB that was discussed. Steve clarifies that he was basically using jobs that the performers used after they left daytime soaps or while doing daytime soaps. He didn't include the male stripper job since Mark did it before he made it big.

Someone also asked him about the ordained minister and Steve said he performed Howard Stern's wedding and it was stated then that Mark was an ordained minister.
