More on wrestling-reality show connection
In this morning’s post about Torrie Wilson’s performance on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here, I listed other wrestlers who have appeared on network reality competition shows, but, as several of you have pointed out, I overlooked a couple.
I can’t believe I forgot Chris Jericho, who was on Fox’s Celebrity Duets in 2006. Then again, if you blinked, you missed him, because he was the first one eliminated. I also failed to include Matt Anoa’i (Rosey), who dropped out during the fifth episode of ABC’s Fat March in 2007.
For those who mentioned Matt Morgan on American Gladiators (NBC, 2008) and Trish Stratus on Armed and Famous (CBS, 2007), I did not mention Morgan because he was a character on the show rather than a contestant, and Stratus’ show was a reality series but not a competition.
