It's a battle of the ages as Survivor heads into its 21st season on the shores of Nicaragua. The reality hit is pitting 10 castaways age 30 and younger versus 10 players 40 and older. Rumors have been swirling for weeks about Jimmy Johnson, two-time Super Bowl winning coach of the Dallas Cowboys and current Fox NFL Sunday commentator, and we can now confirm the football legend dons a blue buff for the older Espada tribe.
"As a kid, I always dreamed of doing something like this, and football got in the way for many years," Johnson told TV Guide Magazine as filming began in early June. "I'm not a fan of Survivor, I'm obsessed with it."
The 67-year-old Johnson is the oldest castaway this season, but he says despite his age, he's in top physical shape. "I nearly had an opportunity to go to Gabon [in 2008], and then the heart doctor for Survivor found blockage," Johnson says. "He sent me to the cardiologist, I lost 25 pounds, cholesterol went from 220 to under 100, so you might say Survivor saved my life."
