America's Got Talent Wiki

Leroy Patterson was a pain junkie act from Season 10 of America's Got Talent. He was eliminated in the Judge Cuts.


Leroy Patterson has been an Editor for FOX ADHD, Pro Wrestler for Freakshow Wrestling, and Former Videogame Tester from Downey, California. [1]

He has a very high pain tolerance. He was eight or nine years old when he climbed a jungle gym, jumped off, and landed without feeling any pain. Ever since then, he has been doing crazy stunts like jumping on cars, being thrown off of roofs, or slamming into various things. He once dislocated his jaw but let it fix itself.


Leroy Patterson's audition in Episode 1003 consisted of laying 5000 thumbtacks onto the floor. He then dropped himself onto the tacks both back first and front first. He also hit the tacks with his forehead and with his fists. He performed to Pat Benatar's "Hit Me With Your Best Shot." Heidi Klum buzzed the act. Although Heidi Klum voted "No," Howard SternMel B, and Howie Mandel all voted "Yes," sending Leroy to the Judge Cuts round.

Judge Cuts
