John Rocker and his girlfriend, Julie McGee (a spray-tan entrepreneur), are among the contestants on the upcoming season of Survivor, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. They’ll be competing as a pair. If you’re wondering if Rocker has mellowed out since his infamous SI profile, he lamented baseball’s new diversity initiatives last year and opined that the sport was better with steroids.
Physically, the couple looks like they will be able to endure many of the challenges inherent in the reality show, but intelligence and collaboration are also important traits in Survivor. My money would be on Rocker to say a few CONTROVERSIAL things, but not emerge victorious.
