5-year-old ‘apparently kid’ talks about all the attention

WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (CNN/WNEP) — So apparently, a Pennsylvania kid’s trip to the Wayne County Fair has unexpectedly turned him into a TV star.

This 5-year-old reporter-in-the-making apparently knows how to steal a show.

Noah Ritter shares what it’s been like going national.

“It was great, but apparently, I was like so embarrassed,” said Noah. “I was like that, I was like this embarrassed … Because apparently — Oh, now I’m just using the words that I used when I was filmed at the county fair.”

Noah’s rise to stardom all began Friday at the Wayne County Fair when he did an interview with Newswatch 16’s Sofia Ojeda and eventually took over.

“Everything’s been overwhelming,” said Noah’s grandfather, Jack Borowski. “We went to the fair, and we got interviewed, and everything unraveled from there.”

Just where did he learn the word “apparently”?

“I don’t know, maybe from my mom. I don’t know,” said Noah.

And as it turns out, this soon-to-be kindergartner has a few other favorite adverbs.

“Seriously, sometimes I always fail,” said Noah. “Seriously, sometimes I always fail.”

Oh, and since Noah confessed earlier that he does not watch the news but does watch Powerball, we were curious about whether his family had ever won.

“No, no,” said Borowski.

“Apparently, every time grandpa gets lottery tickets, apparently, the woman that’s giving us lottery tickets is jinxing us,” said Noah.

Either way, Noah is winning big.

By the way, he’s entering kindergarten this year and wants to be a paleontologist
