Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson will be on television plenty this Fall other than his usual FOX appearances and ExtenZe commercials.
Mark Francesutti and Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News reported early Tuesday morning that Johnson joined the cast of Survivor, which started taping at the end of June. Taping only lasts 39 days, so Johnson will be back well before the FOX studio show starts.
The idea seems bizarre, but Johnson previously mentioned in an interview he almost joined the cast a few years back, but he failed a physical. (Maybe those pills he’s taking really do help!)
Now the 67-year-old two-time Super Bowl champion coach will be one of the oldest contestants in the show’s history. It’s almost enough to make me watch the show for the first time.
