Rob Gronkowski To Star In New Game Show from CBS Sports
FOXBOROUGH - Ever since he announced his retirement over the 2019 off-season, Rob Gronkowski has been extremely busy. The former New England Patriots tight end spent months dodging rumors that he would be returning to the team because he could not stay away from football. It seems like this hope is officially buried, however, as Gronk has fully immersed himself in celebrity culture.
In addition to kickstarting his own line of CBD products to help athletes recover from their performances, Gronk has also made a big splash on FOX Sports as an analyst for the weekly spread of NFL games. When asked if he would ever return to the league, Gronk said his FOX Sports gig was "too lit." So yes, he's having fun.
The fun is continuing now as Gronk is also slated to star in a new game show from CBS Sports entitled Game On!, as reported by 98.5 The Sportshub.
While we do not yet know when the show will air, it seems like it will not take too long to produce. Hosted by comedian Keegan-Michael Key and produced by talk show host James Corden, the reality-competition series will be based on a similar show in the United Kingdom known as A League of Their Own.
The show will see two teams competing against one another, with Gronk as the captain of one and tennis sensation Serena Williams as the captain of the other. The team will be a mix of comedians and athletes as they go head to head in athletic competitions and trivia contests.
This is not the first time that Gronk has entered the foray of television game shows. Over the summer, he and former teammate Julian Edelman competed against one another on The $100,000 Pyramid. To say the least, Gronk was not too great at giving clues and Edelman ended up performing much more admirably on the show, which is hosted by another former NFL star, Michael Strahan. This new game show seems to be much more up Gronk's alley, though.
