Jaleel White won himself into America’s hearts with his memorable role as “Steve Urkel” on one of the 90′s most popular TV sitcoms “Family Matters”, but now as the host of the top rated “Total BlackOut” on SyFy, he shows us that there’s a much darker side to him.  In fact, it’s completely dark.  And completely awesome.  “Total Blackout” is a brilliant contestant show on SyFy that focuses on participants doing crazy activities in pitch black conditions for 5k, and as it enters season 2, it has become a fan favorite and ratings monster. Jaleel has become one of TV’s most popular hosting personalities, and it looks like that he will help people survive the “Total BlackOut” for a long time to come.

Here “The King Of Kamelot”sits down with the incredibly nice and funny Jaleel White in NYC right after he finished on NBC’s Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda to talk about entering his second season of hosting his hit show on SyFy, what to expect in the new season, how he successfully made the transition from child star to adult star, his experience on Dancing With The Stars, and soo much more!  Jaleel is a class act, and it is great to see someone transition his childhood fame into a terrific career as an adult!  Enjoy Kade Nation!!
