Unlike in his gig as peddler of Extenze male, uh, enhancement pills, former Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson didn’t “go long” in his appearance on Survivor: Nicaragua, as he was voted off at the conclusion of Wednesday night’s episode. From TVFanatic.com:
“Last night’s episode of survivor, “Glitter In Their Eyes” was a reminder that as much as Survivor is a social game it is also still very much a physical game. Despite his celebrity coming into the season and earned respect during his time with the espada tribe, Jimmy Johnson couldn’t escape that he was the oldest and possibly weakest member of his tribe.”
At 65, Johnson made a habit of saying that he had no real shot to win the contest, but, apparently, some other folks on the program--other “Survivors,” if you will--saw the former Cowboys’ head coach as something of a threat. His own teammates, from what I can gather, saw him as a liability, leading to his ouster Wednesday.
