From an instant celebrity, 35-year old Timothy Michael Poe, who had won over millions of fans with his experiences of wars in Afghanistan, turned into a no-body.
He was actually a fake war hero.
The news came as a real shock to the judges, and and audience as has been reported in skynews dated 7th of June 2012.
Timothy Michael Poe had never been to Afghanistan nor had he ever been in the war.
It seems he made up an imaginary tales of his 14-years experiences in war ravaged Afghanistan when in 2009, he suffered a broken back and injuries to his brain when he was hit by a grenade.
He had done it to win sympathies and popularity – but his plan misfired because the truth came out when detailed background checks were carried out.
