In a recent interview conducted by Sports Illustrated with Former Heavyweight Champion of the World George Foreman, the former champ was asked why he was doing a reality television show? The new show which started airing this month on TV Land is called "Family Foreman."

When asked why he decided a reality T.V. show was right for him, Foreman who is also famous for his cooking device, "The George Foreman Grill", told SI: "Well, in reality, when you leave boxing life can really get kind of boring. It doesn't matter what you're doing, nothing can recreate that kind of excitement. I did a television show in the 1990s ("George," which was canceled after one season on ABC in 1993) and I've been looking to do another and at the same time my son (George III) became my agent and he thought things had changed and maybe it was time to do a reality show."

Foreman went on to add: "I never thought much of it, but the next thing I know, the deal is done because he wanted to do it. He felt it would be good to showcase the family."
