Jon Bernhardt is an actuary from Somerville, Massachusetts. He has played at weddings. He has a son, so he does not practice as much as he used to.

He is a member of the Society of Actuaries, but he has also performed his theremin with bands such as The Lothars, The Pee Wee Fist, and UV Protection. [1]


Jon Bernhardt's audition in Episode 1106 consisted of performing The Clash's "Should I Stay or Should I Go" on the theremin. Mel B and Heidi Klum buzzed the act. Although Heidi voted "No", Howie Mandel, Mel B (having retracted her buzz), and Simon Cowell voted "Yes," sending Jon to the Judge Cuts.
