Colin Cloud is a mentalist contestant on America’s Got Talent and he says that he uses criminal profiling to carry out many of his tricks. But, apparently, there are some easy ways to execute his tricks without having psychic abilities, according to a site called Secrets Explained.
In the above audition video, Cloud conducts an elaborate trick, involving the judges. First, he correctly guesses the professions of a couple people sitting in the front row and then he asks host Tyra Banks to sit on a box that is on stage. Afterwards, he performs a coin trick, guessing which hand the coin is in when judge Howie Mandel participates. He also does the same with judge Mel B and so on. During this, he asks the audience for their input, asking them to pick a color, a name and an animal.
