Winning NBC's Phenomenon
has opened a lot of doors for Mike Super. Following the show's live season finale, the Clairton native received various offers from different industries, and is now planning to pursue his own television series.
“I'm…currently working on a possible Vegas deal. I've even been offered some small movie parts which I'd love to do as well!” Super told NBC. “But for right now, I'll definitely be pursuing my own magic series on TV... I have a concept that is completely fresh and has never been done. I'm REALLY excited about it!”
Mike Super will also be embarking on a nationwide tour, which will give Phenomenon
viewers an opportunity to see more of his unique performances.
While winning the competition was the goal for all 10 contestants, just being on the show was a reward in itself for Super, as it not only gave him the chance to fulfill his dream, but also to build lasting friendships.
“I made lifelong friends with the cast and the crew, and I got to reach MILLIONS of people with my performances! The cast and crew are now legitimately a part of my life and I'm really thankful for that,” he said. “It was something I wasn't expecting. From the executive producers down to the cast, EVERYONE was down to earth and we became an all around family!... It was a blessing to be involved in this show simply because of the people I've met and can now call my friends.”
Although Mike Super is clearly ecstatic about his Phenomenon
win, it has also proven to be bittersweet, considering two important people weren't there to witness it.
“[I was relieved] that I wasn't voted off, and then a huge wave of happy sadness because I know my parents would've been so proud!!” he said. “It was all I could do to keep it together.”
Still, he sees the tremendous value of his achievement, proclaiming it as “an amazing example of how God works.”
“I found out I got the show on what would've been my mother's birthday...and I was fortunate enough to win on what would've been my father's birthday! There's no way that's just coincidence!” he said.
