A career in debauchery has uniquely prepared talk-show host Steve Wilkos, who got his start as the brawl-busting security guard on the Jerry Springer Show, to be the honorary grand marshal of Saturday's Krewe of the Knights of Sant' Yago Knight Parade through Ybor City.

When we asked what people would have to do to get beads from him, he said: "I know how they get the beads on the Springer show. That's probably the best way to get them while I'm down there. I hope that's not illegal down there."

Even guys?

"I don't look at guys," he laughed. "I just threw the beads really high that time."
