DON'T LOOK FOR "THE MEN OF NBC" ON PLAYBOY PPV
Published January 18, 1996
"Entertainment Tonight's" Mary Hart reported on Playboy's pay-per-view special "Real Men Don't Watch Pregame," which will air live from the Bahamas at the same time as Super Bowl XXX pregame festivities on NBC. Hart: "On Super Bowl Sunday, you could watch a bunch of football analysts go on for a couple of hours about kicking games and defense, or you could watch Baywatch's Gina Lee Nolan and a bevy of beauties play their own game." The show will feature "competitions" between groups of women representing the Playboy Playmates, Hooters Restaurant chain, Hawaiian Tropic, and former NFL Cheerleaders. Hart said the PPV special "will put a sexy spin on games you played as a kid" -- including Twister, tug-of-war, water sports, football throwing, and the limbo ("ET," 1/17).
