Most readers of the blog or listeners to my radio show know how big of a fan I am of CBS’ Survivor, which starts season 21 this fall on Wednesdays at 8pm ET. In fact, in 20 seasons I’ve only missed 3 episodes.
Well, news came yesterday that former Dallas Cowboys Head Coach and current FOX NFL studio analyst Jimmy Johnson will be a contestant. Apparently he tried out for Survivor: Gabon but failed his physical.
Survivor is one of those games that with minor twists per season doesn’t need to be tweaked, but having a name like Johnson on a season can be just the tweak in Survivors that the show needs to keep drawing in curious viewers. If true, I like this and am very anxious to see how it all plays out.
