Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World? (VIDEO)

Can Shaquille O'Neal Outrace the Fastest Man in the World?There's some debate about who the current "Fastest Man Alive" is. Some people say it's Usain Bolt; some people say it's Tyson Gay. ... But at any rate, Tyson Gay is no worse than the second fastest man on the face of the Earth. And now, Shaquille O'Neal must beat him in a race.

'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC) is a show where O'Neal takes on the top athletes in he world, challenging them in their own sports. Tonight's match-up: Shaq versus Tyson. The pair run a 60 meter race; except that Shaq gets a 30 meter head start. Hey! That isn't exactly cool! So O'Neal only has to run half as far as Gay?

Will the world's (possibly) fastest man win, even if he has to run twice as far as Shaq? Let's watch and see. And no matter who wins, is this even a fair contest for either athlete?

Shaq's Reality Show More Popular With Viewers than Last Season

by Scott Harris, posted Aug 5th 2010 10:35AM
It's been a big week for the Big Aristotle. Oh, sure, Shaquille O'Neal's last team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, may have fallen apart against the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals even faster than his relationship with departing star LeBron James deteriorated. But in a classic "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" moment, Shaq yesterday signed on with the Celtics and now, as proof that living well is the best revenge, it appears his prospects as a television star off the court may be as good as his chances for another ring on the court.

That's because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the first numbers have come in for the second season premiere of 'Shaq VS' and the news is good: with a 1.9 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and an overall total of 5.4 million viewers, the episode was up 12 percent over last year and set a new high mark for the series.

Shaq Races Cars Against Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (VIDEO)

Shaq Against Dale Earnhardt, Jr.It's Shaquille O'Neal versus Dale Earnhardt, Jr. Wait! That's not fair! Shaq is much taller. ... Oh; oh, all right. They're not competing in basketball? That's okay then.

On 'Shaq Vs.' (Tue., 9PM ET on ABC), Shaquille takes on race car driver Dale Earnhardt. Shaq is over seven feet tall, and Dale is only six feet. But Shaq's normal height advantage won't help him here. During the competition, the pair of athletes are racing cars. And Shaq is in fact at a disadvantage, since his height requires a specially-made car with a lift-off top just so he can get into the thing.

So let's get to the results from the actual challenge. Can Shaq manage to outrace Dale? They have five laps to figure this out.

Was the idea for Shaq Vs. stolen?

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 18th 2009 8:30PM
Andy Roddick Beat Me With A Frying PanTonight is the series premiere of ABC's new celebrity reality competition whatever show, Shaq Vs. But if one guy gets his way, you won't see it.

Author Todd Gallagher says the idea for the show was stolen from his book Andy Roddick Beat Me With A Frying Pan. That's not an accusation of assault against the tennis star, the book was about Gallagher challenging people to sporting competitions if they gave him an advantage in some way. Roddick used a frying pan. I haven't read the book but I would love to see him play golf against Tiger Woods, with Woods having to use a giant ladle.

He says that William Morris Endeavor wanted to turn his book into a TV series last year but then went ahead and did it anyway, changing the name to Shaq Vs. Since the show airs in 30 minutes, I'd say he won't be able to stop it, at least this week.

ABC lines up celebrity athletes to take on O'Neal in Shaq Vs.

by Jason Hughes, posted Jul 22nd 2009 9:00PM
Shaquille O'NealI can't help but think of the old "Bo Knows" commercials, where professional baseball and football player Bo Jackson showed us that he could do literally anything. Now, it's the big man's turn. Shaquille O'Neal stars in Shaq Vs., where the basketball star shows his own diversity by taking on the likes of Michael Phelps and Albert Pujols.

The idea is that Shaq will take on the guest athlete's sport, meaning he'll swim laps with Phelps and go to bat against Pujols. The ABC series premieres Tuesday, August 18 at 9 PM, but there's no word as to how many episodes they're signed up for. If it's a huge hit, though, you have to think they're going to need to find more athletes and more challenges for Shaq.

Can he Trade powerslams with Randy Orton? Pump more steroids than Manny Ramirez? Make a better blacklight sex tape than Paris Hilton? Get more tabloid headlines than the Gosselins? The real challenge would be if Shaq starts taking on actors in their chosen field.
