Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson is a contestant on Survivor: Nicaragua and it's a dream come true for the football legend — not to mention it might have saved his life!
"This is my third time here. My first time I got turned down. The second time, [for Gabon], I went through the whole process, and the Survivor doctor says, 'Hey, you can't go: You've got [arterial] blockage.' I went to the cardiologist and had a stent the very next week.
"I could've very well gone on at the same pace, at the same weight, and six months later—bang!—and been gone. In some ways Survivor might have saved my life."
We wonder how well he'll do on the show?
