He’s not freakish about his size, but NSO Deputy George Bell’s size has attracted national attention on AMC’s Freakshow which airs tonight at 9:30pm. Deputy Bell, a towering 7 feet, 8 inches tall, says he’s “just himself” on today’s series which was taped in Venice Beach.

The show is a reality show depicting “exceptional people, specimens and creatures.” Bell says he had a good time during the taping and was intriqued with some of the other stars of the show.

Deputy Bell is the second tallest living man in America.
