'AGT' Judge Howie Mandel Says He Passed Out Due to Dehydration and Low Blood Sugar
The "AGT" judge said he fainted due to dehydration and low blood sugar. He then thanked the medical personnel who took care of him and everyone who reached out to him after the news broke.

According to reports, Howie Mandel was with his wife and friends at a Starbucks in the Woodland Hills when he fainted and fell over at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday.
Upon fainting, the 65-year-old comedian was placed on a cement bench while people nearby called paramedics for help, Fox News reported.
When help arrived, Mandel was reportedly to be alert. But he was still brought by the Los Angeles City Fire Department personnel to a nearby hospital as a precaution. The said Starbucks where the AGT judge fainted was reported to be the place he frequented for his morning coffee run.
Howie Mandel Underwent Endoscopy and Colonoscopy
It was not the first time that Howie Mandel went to a hospital this week. Three days ago, the AGT judge also went for a trip to a hospital, as he underwent a routine colonoscopy and endoscopy, The Daily Mail reported.
The star posted a TikTok video from the hospital where he was seen wearing a red hospital robe for the procedure and admitted that he was still under the influence of heavy medication.
"I had an endoscopy and a colonoscopy. I hope the endoscopy comes first, and I hope it's a different piece of equipment," Mandel jokingly told the nurse.
Mandel tagged #hospital, #recovery, #AGT, #audition in his post.
The nurse then said that the procedure was done just like what the comedian said, but Mandel contended that it was not the case humorously, arguing that he got a different taste in his mouth.
Howie Mandel also shared in the TikTok video that the patient next to his bed in the recovery room recognized his voice and tried to audition on AGT "as he waking up."
"You tryin' to get on the show [AGT]... I don't know I'm not casting, but you sound a really good contestant," Mandel told the patient next to him.
Howie Mandel has previously opened up about his struggles with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, particularly regarding his fear of germs.
