A few weeks ago, the first couple of the SEC–former Alabama QB AJ McCarron and Katherine Webb–announced their engagement via twitter when Webb tweeted out a picture of the two hugging while she flashed off the big rock that the two-time national champion had just given her.
Now, according to NFL.com, everyone will be able to share in their journey to the altar as the two will be starring in a reality series leading up to the big event.
“They’ve already started filming during the proposal,” said Katherine’s sister, Laurie Webb, according to theplainsman.com. “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.”
According to Laurie Webb, the show will focus on the wedding planning, leading up to the wedding ceremony itself being televised. While a group of producers is currently working on the show, no network has been chosen to air the program yet.
This announcement shouldn’t be all that shocking, considering how highly publicized their relationship has been from the get-go, which we can all probably thank ABC analyst Brent Musberger for that.
However, with the NFL Draft coming up and a lot of questions surrounding McCarron already, you have to wonder how NFL teams will take to this news. Will they see it as an unwanted distraction from a rookie?
