One of the most charismatic stars of CBS’s long-running "Survivor" franchise has snagged a new reality show, People magazine reports.
Rob Mariano, better known as Boston Rob, has a show on the History Channel called "Around the World in 80 Ways." Mariano will co-host with Dennis Anderson, a monster truck producer.
The show has elements of "Amazing Race" (another show in which Mariano competed) as Anderson and Mariano go around the world in 80 different modes of transportation.
Mariano acknowledged his "Amazing Race" experience will give him credibility on the new show, but he told People that this program will be different. "The approach that we are taking … is completely different from anything I’ve done before in that this show will be a celebration of transportation throughout history."
