A.J. McCarron and Katherine Webb get a reality show

Former Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron recently proposed to Katherine Webb.  She accepted.  And you’ll eventually get to see that moment and everything leading up to the wedding.

Yes, McCarron and Webb have become the latest couple of land a reality TV series, a concept that results in anything but reality actually being televised.

“They’ve already started filming during the proposal,” Webb’s sister told ThePlainsman.com, via NFL.com. “From what I understood, it came from someone else.  I don’t think they were trying to get into a reality show, I think they just had the opportunity and decided to take it.”

That may not make it any better for McCarron, who’s trying to get selected as high as possible in next month’s draft.  How would teams and/or the media react if Johnny Manziel were embarking on a reality show?

For McCarron, maybe it won’t matter.  Since the show apparently will be about the planning of a wedding, his role may be the same as the average groom’s role is in the planning of the wedding:  (1) take the men in the wedding party to fitted for tuxedos; and (2) don’t get stranded on the roof of a hotel in Las Vegas.

Regardless, the decision definitely won’t help McCarron get drafted any higher.  For situations like this, the best-case scenario is that he’ll be drafted where he would have been drafted anyway.

Of course, good luck making that case to a bride whose 15 minutes of fame are dangerously close to expiring.

    Will watch this, but only if Brent Musburger hosts.

    Bust.

    His girlfriend is hot

    smells like the Hank Baskett situation all over again. McCarron is going to need some kind of income when he’s out of the league in a couple years.

    She could be immortalized if she made the kind of movie I’d like to see her in.

    Guy went from cool to lame in that moment he let his girlfriend talk him into this.

    Wow, tv stations are really desperate for programing. My buddy lives in Norway and sent me a link to a tv station live streaming a sink hole, for hours on end.

  8. madroaddog says: Apr 9, 2014 2:43 PM

    Hopefully just a little of him and a lot of her.

  9. raiderufan says: Apr 9, 2014 2:46 PM

    And yet I keep hearing Manziel isn’t focused on football because he’s doing mcdonalds commercials and signing endorsements with nike…

  10. nirvana504 says: Apr 9, 2014 2:47 PM

    She’s so overrated.

  11. trollhammer20 says: Apr 9, 2014 2:51 PM

    Speaking of Webb, I hope that Brent Musberger has seen his doctor by now…

  12. peopletrains says: Apr 9, 2014 2:54 PM

    What a circus like Manziel… I hope my team pulls this clown from their draft board.

  13. louiedogg16 says: Apr 9, 2014 2:54 PM

    Well, he is gonna be a garbage NFL QB now.

  14. razzlejag says: Apr 9, 2014 2:57 PM

    Wow. Surefire Patriot pick now certainly won’t be…just too many distractions for him now.

  15. ndirish10 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:01 PM

    I knew I wasn’t the only one. Something about having Chiclets for teeth…

  16. ndirish10 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:02 PM

    About her being overrated.

  17. jolink653 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:07 PM

    Who comes up with the ideas for these stupid shows? I can’t believe those people still have jobs

  18. docr8der says: Apr 9, 2014 3:09 PM

    From sane to lame in seconds.
    His stock just plummeted.
    Manziel looks like he siphoned off maturity from someone’s grandad compared to this idiot.

  19. vegasvinnie says: Apr 9, 2014 3:10 PM

    Sounds like the perfect lead in to Honey Boo Boo.

  20. azjam says: Apr 9, 2014 3:11 PM

    Not a big deal.

  21. mogogo1 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:11 PM

    I think he’s a pretty good QB and that she’s very attractive. Neither of those mean I want to watch them plan their wedding, have lunch, or do any of the other lame stuff the reality show will depict.

  22. fwippel says: Apr 9, 2014 3:11 PM

    Anyone who thinks Katherine Webb’s 15 minutes of fame are close to expiring is fooling himself.

    On the other hand, I could absolutely see that being the case with McCarron.

  23. ravenswhat says: Apr 9, 2014 3:12 PM

    This guy is the next Tom Brady.

  24. hrmlss says: Apr 9, 2014 3:15 PM

    Imagine him going to the Jets, Decker’s show is put in the same time slot and is kicking his, so he refuses to throw to Decker.

  25. irishinyourface says: Apr 9, 2014 3:15 PM

    best QB in the draft next to Tommy Rees

  26. getyourownname says: Apr 9, 2014 3:21 PM

    I don’t think the average groom gets to go home to Katherine Webb.

  27. girthhammer says: Apr 9, 2014 3:27 PM

    The only reality is that he is beginning his long life of being a backup to the spotlight.

  28. punkrock21 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:29 PM

    He’s obviously laser-focused on his football career…..jackass, this whole qb class this year is turd

  29. sellie69 says: Apr 9, 2014 3:29 PM

    Lol. This is the ultimate football sin.

  30. 100uv says: Apr 9, 2014 3:31 PM

    Imagine what these ” future union members” will do after college when they go undrafted and the money won’t keep coming and no degrees

  31. dallasbaby says: Apr 9, 2014 3:32 PM

    I hope they show what brand of paper clips his buy one -get one free tattoo artist used to scratch those hideous things all over his arms and chest

  32. razzzmajazzz says: Apr 9, 2014 3:40 PM

    The show was a done deal on the condition of a proposal. Who do you think paid for a ring like that, a television production company or the college kid with no job?

  33. wisconsinhillfolk says: Apr 9, 2014 3:41 PM

    This young woman is absolutely beautiful… incredibly hot! However, I’d rather have the producers of this brand of crap come to my house and cut off my pinky toe than watch one second of it. These shows diminish us all. This should be the impetus for any responsible GM to pick any other potential scrub, backup QB.

  34. txfinfan says: Apr 9, 2014 3:44 PM

    his agent has done a bang-up job explaining to him how much all this outside publicity and distractions are going to benefit him in the NFL.

  35. 100uv says: Apr 9, 2014 3:45 PM

    Jerry jones is working deal so the wedding can be at AT&T stadium

  36. guinsrule2 says: Apr 9, 2014 4:05 PM

    So if the show will be about the planning of a wedding, then she knew about the proposal before it happened. So her shock and surprise at the marriage proposal, which I’m sure we’ll see on the show, will be completely fake.

  37. clashpoint says: Apr 9, 2014 4:14 PM

    We’re all going to be ok if I don’t care, right?

    As much as I love football I hate the slow news days, and I’m betting most of the sports media does too. I think the nfl should have the 7 rounds of the draft across seven weeks just to give us all some more actual football stuff to talk about until training camp starts.

  38. kane337 says: Apr 9, 2014 4:32 PM

    Don’t want him on my team.

  39. h0c2000 says: Apr 9, 2014 4:38 PM

    What’s it called, Hicks who will blow through a pile of cash and coke by the time they’re 30?

  40. godofwine330 says: Apr 9, 2014 4:43 PM

    Does he realize that no Alabama QB has done ANYTHING significant at the NFL level since Kenny Stabler? I mean NONE! I don’t want him on my Browns. No way.

  41. nicofthenorthstar says: Apr 9, 2014 5:11 PM

    Embarrassing.
