Love him or hate him, Boston Rob played what Jeff Probst called a ‘near perfect game of Survivor‘ this season and finally won the million after 4 attempts. If you watch the show, you know how hard it is to dislike Rob Mariano. He somehow turns lying and backstabbing into a noble thing at the end of the day with the whole, ‘just trying to make a better life for my family’ thing.
Well now he has for sure. I’m glad to report after hearing the other day that Survivor’s evilest player ev-ah Russell Hantz got his own show that Boston Rob now his own show in the History Channel called Around the World in 80 Ways.
“I’m on a plane tonight to Los Angeles and I start production in the morning on a new show that I’m doing’, Mariano confirmed today. ’It’s adrenaline-style TV, which is perfect for me. I love adventure, so I’m excited to be working on something new and making the transition from reality show contestant to host’, he added. “‘The basic premise of the show is me and a co-host are going to travel around the world, from point A to point B, but you can never repeat any of the forms of transportation’, Mariano explained. ’If you use a commercial airline once, you can’t use it again. You need to take a fighter jet or a blimp or a hot air balloon. Within that context, we’re going to try to use transportation that is indigenous to the area. If we’re in the desert, we’ll ride camels’, he added.
