Josh did tell a few of his family members that could keep a secret, but even his neighbors were shocked to hear that his TV persona was no longer. "When I went out to -- I went downstairs, and I saw by our mailbox, the neighbors across the street, who I don't even know, had left my wife and I a really beautiful note just saying that we feel like a family member had died and we know this is just a TV show and all that. But it was, I have to say, I was very touched by it."
