Oz Pearlman

Pearlman left his job on Wall Street to fulfill a lifelong goal of becoming a mentalist. His dream came true when he shocked the judges during his audition on the most recent season of "America's Got Talent" on NBC. He continued to impress audiences throughout his run on the show and eventually came in third out of thousands of contestants. When he's not performing, the Israeli-born Pearlman enjoys going on runs – really long ones. The 33-year-old runs 50-mile ultra-marathons and is one of the fastest at that distance. "A lot of my best creative bursts are when I’m running," Pearlman says. "I brainstorm ideas for routines."
