Cash Owens is the 10-year-old auctioneer from Minnesota who demonstrates his gift of the gab on Little Big Shots. He says it comes naturally to him; ever since he can remember he “just wanted to talk all the time.” Could be that the young man with the speedy tongue just has a special realization of how precious every breath is. Cash was born with improperly developed intestines. According to his father Dan Owens, as an infant Cash was resuscitated a dozen times before he was placed on a respirator. He spent two months early in his life in the hospital recovering from surgery.
