Jimmy Johnson? Seriously? :huh: I really want to see what his hair looks like after a few days out there, but I'm not a fan of stunt casting. ABC has tried casting celebrities 'stranded' in a 'jungle', and look how well that worked. Ugh.

That said, I'd love to see him voted out first so they can get on with the game. It has an interesting premise. :watch:

I think J.J.'s celebrity status will put him at a great disadvantage unless he can win people over quickly with his charms. He will be an obvious target to pick on early.

I don't know who to root for. I'm not eligible for either team. :lol: According to Survivor, I'm neither young nor old. :P

Who is Jimmy Johnson?


Two-time Super Bowl champion coach of the Dallas Cowboys, among other achievements.

More known now for his hair (which looks bullet and windproof) and snazzy shirts. :lol: Which reminds me, I read a link this morning that he's a long time fan who has applied several times to be on the show. Oh, and I'm a long time fan of his coaching ability (just not the idea of a celebrity being on Survivior - too annoyed by too many reality 'stars' dancing I guess). :shuffle:

They had that other football guy on several seasons ago - I actually thought it was funny that they had a sportscaster as another contestant and she ID'ed him :lol: But I take it Jimmy Johnson is more easily identifiable than the other guy?

That's exactly what I was thinking! I always scratch my head when there are posts that assumes John Q. Public knows (or cares) who that person is. Football? :rolleyes: Some men grow up, others play football! :P

Well, you know, if Joe Namath were going to be on the show, or Mean Joe Greene I'd know who it was :shuffle:

Football seems to be the great American pastime, but I know a lot more individual basketball players' names. Probably because there are fewer players on the court (field) at a time. And they don't wear helmets so we can see their faces. But I'm guessing a 7' guy would kind of stand out on Survivor :P

I'd know any football'er on Survivor if they had competed on a past season of Dancing With The Stars. :D

Ironically, the other "big name" football contestant on Survivor was Gary Hogeboom, who had been quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, which were coached by Jimmy Johnson...

pml, I go to read the paper at lunch and there's an article about Jimmy Johnson being on Survivor! :P
