It's the logical step for AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb, right?
The newly-engaged couple is going to have their lives documented by a reality show as they plan their July 11 wedding. According to Webb's sister, McCarron's March proposal to Webb was filmed by the production crew.
“They’ve already started filming during the proposal,” Laurie Webb told the Auburn Plainsman. “From what I understood, it came from someone else. I don’t think they were trying to get into a reality show, I think they just had the opportunity and decided to take it.”
Laurie Webb is set to be Katherine's maid of honor and she's a public relations major at Auburn, so this is certainly some unique practical experience. When McCarron proposed, Katherine Webb had no idea why she was being filmed.
While the former Alabama quarterback and Miss Alabama USA 2012 are one of the state's – and football's – most popular couples at the moment, important specifics like the number of episodes or which network will broadcast the show haven't been finalized yet.
Shall we suggest the SEC Network? The conference television network, backed by ESPN, launches in August, and their show would surely be some high-rated non-game programming and could help attract a significant female audience to the network. Plus, Brent Musburger is now with the SEC Network. Given that he helped bring Webb to national prominence, he could serve as the show's narrator.
Webb's father said the show isn't slated to be scandalous, so expect some G-rated Iron Bowl rivalry jokes. It's an idea that makes sense for a series involving a guy with a tattoo of Jesus on his chest.
“After that was made known, my wife and I did several interviews,” Alan Webb said. “As reality shows go, this would be a wholesome one for sure.”
Webb, who posed for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue after she was noticed at the 2013 BCS Championship Game, has participated in a reality show before. She was part of ABC's Splash, a celebrity diving show before she withdrew after getting hurt.
