Pittsburgh mayor goes 'Undercover' for reality show, collecting trash, sawing down trees

PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Pittsburgh's mayor has gone undercover for a reality show.

A disguised Bill Peduto appeared on Sunday's episode of the CBS series "Undercover Boss," collecting trash, sawing down trees and helping build a door.

The first-term Democrat donned a wig and beard to blend in as Ed Chadwick from Kentucky.

It didn't work on everyone. One worker saw through the 50-year-old Peduto's "Duck Dynasty"-style costume and lack of chain saw skills.

Corporate donations enabled Peduto to follow another show tradition: bettering employees' lives. He offered tuition and housing payments and promotions.

Peduto says going undercover was the only chance he'll ever have to hear what people say about him when he's not around.

He says the show provided a great opportunity to show off the Steel City.
