Here’s a little twist on the reality show game. According to the Huffington Post,  Jamaican-American Olympic gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross and her football-playing husband Aaron Ross have signed on for a reality show.

She competes internationally for the United States, and has won the Olympic gold medal in the 4×400 meters relay at the 2004 Olympics, the 2008 Olympic Games and in the London 2012 Olympics. He is a cornerback for the Jacksonville Jaguar. The couple met when they both attended the University of Texas.

Glam & Gold will be a summer series on the WE television network. The series will focus more on Richards-Ross. The series is already in the works–filming has begun in Austin and Jacksonville.

“My quest for Olympic gold wouldn’t have been possible without my family, who is behind me all the way! I am so looking forward to sharing our journey to grow our businesses and expand my career all while I try to keep my marriage first – something women can truly identify with,” said Richards-Ross is  a press statement (via Hello Beautiful).

There are only a few Olympic medalists who manage to make more of their career than their medal-winning achievements. FloJo, Carl Lewis, and Mary Lou Retton come to mind. But, increasingly, you are seeing Olympic athletes work hard to make the most of their two weeks of fame. Ryan Lochte would be an example. Let’s see if Richards-Ross can add her name to this short list.

    I its only fitting for Sanya and Aaron to have their own show. Who in the Olympic more exciting
    and has more charisma than SSR. People want to be in her circle, and see her work. Sanya is the epitome of success and hardwork. Aaron is as equally a success story. One of a few who has won championships on all levels of football, and twice in the nfl. There are alot of reality shows on tv today with no substance. This one is sure to be as creative and authentic to the fullest.

    Oh, Lord, please not another reality show. I really hope her and her husband don’t end up getting divorced.
