Jimmy Johnson won't be doing another 'Survivor'

Jimmy Johnson had just wrapped his Sunday night football program in L.A., and with a glass of Heineken over ice, reflected on his time on "Survivor." "It was one of the hardest things I've ever done," said Johnson, who was the third person to be voted off "Survivor: Nicaragua." "You have no idea just how hard it is until you get there.

Jimmy Johnson had just wrapped his Sunday night football program in L.A., and with a glass of Heineken over ice, reflected on his time on "Survivor." "It was one of the hardest things I've ever done," said Johnson, who was the third person to be voted off "Survivor: Nicaragua." "You have no idea just how hard it is until you get there. Zero sleep the first night, maybe 30 minutes of sleep the second night. And you're just so uncomfortable, and hungry. There's two cups of rice per day for 10 people," he said. The lack of food did jump start a substantial weight loss for Johnson. "I weigh 195 right now, and I was down to 180 on the show." Even though it was a tough go, Johnson said he was glad to do it. "I loved doing 'Survivor,' and I am glad that I did. But, I won't be doing it again." Johnson's "Survivor" stint has had another effect: his fan base has expanded considerably. "There are people out there who could care less about the Super Bowls that I've won, know nothing about my football career. And now they suddenly want my autograph! It's great."
