Ugh... two Kellys and two Jimmys? That'll get annoying.

Seriously out of all the thousands of people in the U.S. that probably apply for this show, they pick a bunch with the same names?

Wait. What the fuck, how did I miss this. Jimmy Johnson on Survivor? Why? How?

Is this the first celebrity ever on Survivor? What a random and strange choice. Did he lobby for it, or what? That's so weird.

I think the first one that a good number of people have heard of. I believe Taj from a few seasons back was part of some musical group in the 90s.

Taj is a former pop star and also married to Eddie George. Other than that nope, no real celebrities. Kind of surprised myself about Jimmy Johnson.

He says in his bios that he's a HUGE survivor fan, obsessed even.

Survivor Cast: Jimmy J on CBS

Everyone knows he's rich though so they'll either boot him first, or take him to the end since the jury most likely will NOT award him a million dollars. This is probably why they don't cast celebrities. Most people on the show keep their occupations secret to the rest of the tribe, or they lie about it. But I dont think he can lie lol.


I'd love to see an all celebrity cast of survivor. I think it would be hilarious watching rich people try to survive on an island.

Well, he's not the first NFL alum, remember Gary Hogeboom was on Survivor and tried to hide his identity.

Coach Johnson has already stated that his winnings will directly go to charity. So, the fact that he's rich should no longer be a factor. He's also stated that Survivor is tougher than NFL 3-a-day practices.

If he used James or something not so known he may get away with it. Famous people look pretty different in real life. I have no clue who he is though

Any of the contestants who watch football would deinitely have recognized him, he won NCAA title with UMiami in the 80's, won 2 Super Bowls with the Cowboys in the 90's, coached the Dolphins, and has been on Fox' pregame/halftime shows for over a decade...he wasn't gonna be able to fly under the radar.

Wait, are you taking about Gary Hawkins? I had no idea he was in the NFL...they certainly never mentioned that during Survivor: Guatemala....


....more than five billion times.
