Former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson to compete on ‘Survivor: Nicaragua’
ESPN is reporting former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson will appear on the CBS reality show “Survivor: Nicaragua” this fall.
The 67-year-old Johnson, who was unavailable for comment, joins the show’s 21st season this summer. The series has been taped in various exotic locations, including Panama, the Fiji Islands, Kenya and Brazil since it started in 2000. This year’s show will tape in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua.
Johnson, who won two Super Bowl titles with the Cowboys in the 1990s, will be grouped with strangers in an isolated area where contestants must complete challenges to win awards or immunity from getting kicked out of the game show.
Since retiring from the NFL as a head coach, Johnson has worked for Fox Sports as a pregame show analyst. The taping of Survivor is not expected to conflict with Johnson’s job on Fox.
