Default Jimmy Johnson is on Survivor: Nicaragua

This should be interesting.

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson to be a contestant on 'Survivor: Nicaragua'

12:53 AM CDT on Wednesday, July 21, 2010

By MARK FRANCESCUTTI and BARRY HORN/The Dallas Morning News

Jimmy Johnson won a college football championship and two Super Bowls. But can he survive in the wilderness?

The former Dallas Cowboys coach will be a contestant on the CBS reality show "Survivor: Nicaragua" this fall, a source close to Johnson told the Dallas Morning News.

The series is being taped in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Filming started at the end of June, according to local reports.

The filming schedule will leave Johnson plenty of room to return in time for the NFL season. Johnson is an analyst for the Fox NFL Sunday studio show.

Johnson, 67, will be one of the oldest contestants to ever appear on “Survivor,” one of his favorite television shows. The Miami Herald reported last year that he was almost a contestant on "Survivor: Gabon" (which aired in 2008), but he failed a physical. He has lost weight since.

Johnson coached the Cowboys from 1989-1993 and won back-to-back Super Bowls. He also coached the University of Miami, Oklahoma State and Miami Dolphins.

"Survivor: Nicaragua" will be broadcast in September on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. (a switch from its Thursday time slot in recent years). CBS usually releases a cast list a few weeks before the first episode.

"Survivor" throws contestants into the wilderness with little or no supplies and food. Contestants face physical and mental challenges and are voted out by their tribe members. The last remaining contestant after 39 days earns the title of Sole Survivor and wins $1 million.

I wonder if he'll get to take his Extenze caps with him to the island?

Will it help him win?

Or will it just be more fodder for the commercials?

It's hard to find shows to watch with your kids. Amazing Race and Survivor both fit the bill. We've watched it every season.

who was casey weigmann's wife?

I dont like when they pick people who are already known. Jean the poker player wasnt very popular outside the poker world so I will say he was alright. Survivor should be a bunch of nobodies that have different personalities, physical/mental strengths, class and geography from America. I used to love that show but havent watched it much in the last 4 seasons.

I agree, i don't like that they put Jimmy Johnson on the show..Making it more of a spectacle, then what the show really is. Also, if you haven't watched the last four seasons, you really missed out. The last 2 seasons with Evil Russell have been classic, I reccommend watching online or getting the dvd's if they still have those. The All-star Survivor last spring was one of the best season's ever.
