Conn. Tribal Official Dons Disguise For TV Show
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) _ A leader of the Mohegan Tribe says his family didn’t recognize him when he wore a disguise while filming the reality television show “Undercover Boss” at two casinos.
Bruce “Two Dogs” Bozsum donned biker’s garb for an episode of the CBS show, which features executives working alongside their unwitting employees.
Bozsum had his head shaved and added a goatee and temporary tattoos on his neck and knuckles. Staff from the show first trimmed his hair and added a mustache but decided that wasn’t enough.
“Finally, the makeup girl said, `We’ve got to go all the way. We’ve got to shave it all,”’ Bozsum told The Day of New London (http://bit.ly/1ds2OgG). “I said, `Whatever it takes.”’
The show was filmed in September at the tribe’s Mohegan Sun casinos in Connecticut and Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Bozsum said his son Jacob, a casino host at the Pennsylvania property, passed him a half-dozen times without noticing.
Bozsum was tribal chairman at the time and therefore the leader of the management board that oversees the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority. Another member of the council has since moved into that spot.
In the episode, Bozsum serves drinks, parks cars and tends to slot machines. He said he plans to watch the episode Friday with family at home in West Kingston, R.I.
