It looks like a double congrats is in order for Rob Mariano, better known to Survivor fans as "Boston Rob", who is the million dollar winner of the most recent season, Survivor: Redemption Island.
After FINALLY winning the reality competition on his 4th try, Mariano has also landed himself a hosting gig on History Channel's new show Around The World In 80 Ways.
He explained the show's premise by saying:
"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. 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."
We doubt it will grab the attention of as many viewers as Survivor, but we're sure regular History Channel surfers will tune in.
Congrats on the new show and that hard earned million bucks! You're truly an exception to the expression "third time's the charm". Ha!
Will U watch Boston Rob's new show Around The World In 80 Ways?
