$50 MIL­LION SHOT AT TV

Star (USA) - - Star News -

LeBron James got him­self in a Te­bow uh-oh! The bas­ket­ball su­per­star has poured a small for­tune into his new show, Mil­lion Dol­lar Mile, but af­ter he chose Tim Te­bow as the host, in­sid­ers say LeBron, 33, has lost the con­fi­dence of some en­ter­tain­ment ex­ecs. “LeBron is friends with some of the big­gest names in the world, in­clud­ing the Oba­mas and the Kar­dashi­ans, and yet he picked Tim Te­bow as the host?” said a puz­zled pal. “That’s rais­ing eye­brows be­cause Tim’s star is kind of fad­ing. LeBron should’ve hosted it him­self. Now peo­ple are sec­ondguess­ing all of LeBron’s de­ci­sions, like film­ing the en­tire first sea­son be­fore a sec­ond of footage is shown to the pub­lic.” Mil­lion Dol­lar Mile fol­lows con­tes­tants on an ob­sta­cle course through real city streets in or­der to nab a $1 mil­lion prize, com­pli­cated by “elite ath­letes with one mis­sion: to stop the con­tes­tants from win­ning the money at all costs,” ac­cord­ing to the show’s pro­duc­ers. Adds the in­sider, “LeBron has a lot on the line with this show. Right now, peo­ple are skep­ti­cal.”★
