Connected S1:E19 | Heading Home

The AOL Originals docu-series, "Connected," follows New Yorkers as they film themselves without the interruption of a camera crew in a fresh twist on the unscripted format.

Among the cast is Derek Gaines, a couch-surfing comedian who got a big break while shooting the series when he was signed onto the first season of MTV's Broke A$$ Game Show.
