Jimmy Johnson, the coach who became an analyst, the analyst who became a male-enhancement pitchman, the male-enhancement pitchman who became a contestant on Survivor, has completed his realty-show run and is talking about it.
Well, he’s talking about it as much as he can, given that he can’t talk about how long he lasted on whatever remote location they abandoned these folks with no food, but for the cameramen eating beef jerky and peanut butter sandwiches.
Johnson told the Associated Press that the experience was more difficult than three-a-day training-camp practices. He calls it “a great adventure, but it was at times miserable.”
The former Cowboys and Dolphins coach explained to Michael Hiestand of USA Today that he tried to get on the show six years ago, but after being tentatively accepted he learned via the pre-abandonment physical that he had full blockage in one of his coronary arteries, and 70 percent blockage in another.
“Survivor may have saved my life,” Johnson said.
We’ve got a feeling that, once Terry Bradshaw, Michael Strahan, and Howie Long get a crack at cracking on Johnson for his male-enhancement habit and his Survivor stint and the potentially hilarious overlap between the two, he’ll wish he’d died.
