Season 13 Audition

Even before Sethward began his audition in Episode 1303, the audience was quickly put off by his appearance and mannerisms, booing and jeering for him to get buzzed off. His act consisted of shedding from his caterpillar costume into one of a butterfly, portraying an actual caterpillar's metamorphosis. At the end of the act, unfortunately for Sethward, he "accidentally" exposed himself to the judges and the audience as there was a hole in his stockings. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all buzzed the act. All four judges voted "No", eliminating him from the competition.

After Season 13

Sethward made several more appearances on The Gong Show in the show's second season in 2018: the June 21 (as a walrus) and July 26 episodes (as a chicken). He was gonged twice: the first by Rita Wilson and the second by Lil Rey Howery. He appeared on the August 23 episode (as a cow) and got 26 points, finishing in second place behind Rose City Circus. He appeared again on the August 30 episode (as a bunny) and was gonged again by Rita Wilson.

Season 14 Audition

Sethward returned for Season 14. His audition in Episode 1403 consisted of first standing on stage dressed in a giraffe costume and telling a story about how he was dropped on his head at birth.   Howie Mandel , Gabrielle Union , Julianne Hough and Simon Cowell all buzzed the act.  While being dragged off the stage by Terry Crews, he then flashed the audience.  Afterwards, he later returned to the stage dressed in a walrus costume in which he played with beach balls and rolled off the stage.  Although Howie and Simon voted "yes," Gabrielle and Julianne voted "no," eliminating Sethward from the competition.
