Jon Gosselin wouldn’t mind punching the clock instead of appearing on a hit TLC reality show, usmagazine.com reports.

“I wish I had a 9 to 5 job instead of the nightmare I’m living. This is 24/7,” he told usmagazine.com outside his $1.1-million US Pennsylvania home Monday. “I don’t even want to do taping for the show anymore.”

But Gosselin says he’s stuck filming and doing promotional appearances to make as much money as possible. (A source also tells the current issue of Us Weekly that he’s “suspicious” Kate is hiding cash ahead of their divorce proceedings. They make an estimated $75,000 US per episode.)

“I have two houses and eight children to take care of and I need to work,” he told Us.
