Catching Up With Our Reality Show Bengals

We've been pretty much all about the upcoming NFL Draft here at CJ for these last couple of weeks, so I figured today would be a good time to catch up on some players who have already been through the draft process. Popular folks like Dhani Jones and Chad.

As we all are very well aware, both Jones and Johnson are quite good with today's modern media; although, Jones is nowhere near as prolific as Chad is. Nevertheless, that hasn't stopped The Travel Channel from doing another season of Dhani Tackles the Globe, which was one of my favorite "reality" shows, perhaps ever.

The first episode debuts on the 19th of this month and Dhani's first stop will be in Italy, where he'll try his hand at Olympic-level cycling.  Again, I see nothing but beneficial things from Jones' travel show.  First of all, it goes a long way in shedding the "Bengals = jailbirds" stigma -- Dhani's great personality obviously contributes here, and again, training for events like Olympic Cycling will only help in regards to getting physically prepared for the upcoming season.

At the top of this post, there's a preview of what you can expect when the Dhani Jones World Tour continues.  I, for one, am looking forward to it.

As for the Bengals' favorite son, his Dancing With the Stars exploits gives me an excuse to look at, talk about, and post videos featuring the incredible Cheryl Burke, Ochocinco's partner.  Chad's participation in this mess is just one more step in his adoption by the mainstream media, so we might as well enjoy the ride.

Did I mention Cheryl Burke, because if not, I should probably go ahead and do it, because, to quote Butters from South Park, her butt is like a big mountain of pudding (link is SFW), and that's just alright by me.  Anyway, since this is about the Bengals, I'd should probably mention Chad survived the second week of his DWTS competition, but it didn't look like he did that great in the scoring column.

Maybe he should try doing his Riverdance celebration next time.  Here's some video of his latest performance, with lots of Miss Burke thrown in for good measure.

All things considered, it's been a fairly smooth offseason so far, although, I'm betting Chad's upcoming VH-1 dating show might just change that a little.  And with that, we have your non-NFL Draft update for the day. 

Isn't all this talk about Cheryl Burke's tight end better than worrying about whether or not Mike Brown drafts one?
