Apparently Noah Ritter has some explaining to do! After an Aug. 4 interview at the Wayne County Fair in Pennsylvania, redheaded Ritter rose to viral Internet fame for his precious responses to a local reporter’s questions. 

Sprinkled into almost every sentence was the 5-year-old’s favorite word, “apparently.” 

“They just spotted me and then, boom, they put me on the show,” the youngster explained on The Today Show on Wednesday, Aug. 6.

And while he loves to use “apparently,” which he learned from his mother, Ritter admitted he still has a lot to learn when it comes to the word. 

“No, I don’t know how to spell ‘apparently,’” he said. “I don’t know what it means, I don’t know how to use it, but…wow, this is apparently annoying.”

The cutie doesn’t seem to want longterm fame, but he did say that a future in television would be like “a thousand drops of heaven.”
