John Cena is adding "TV host" to his résumé!
The star opened up to “Extra’s” Renee Bargh about hosting “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader” for Nickelodeon, rumors he's joining the “Fast and Furious” franchise, and those pics of him with a new woman.
John, who recently went through a split with Nikki Bella, played coy on his new relationship with Shay Shariatzadeh. He would only say, “I’m always happy.”
As for Vin Diesel’s message welcoming him to the cast of “Fast and Furious” for the 2020 installment, Cena would only say, “I can’t confirm anything like that… I know he did. His world is very different than mine… I truly appreciate his endorsement. We had a wonderful meeting together… If I were to get the opportunity, I would be extremely grateful for it.”
John is happy to be working on the new “Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?,” saying, “We have some very gifted young people, and our fifth-graders are awesome. I’m very, very fortunate to be doing this show.”
Cena says the new show is not quite the same as the original, noting, “It’s much more about family learning.” He added, “The show is about learning… Kids, you are probably going to do better than your folks.”
He added, “I was a horrible fifth-grader… I caused a lot of trouble… These kids are so confident, so brilliant, and so talented, so far ahead of where I was as a fifth-grader. Gives me tremendous hope for the future."
"Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grade?" will premiere on Nickelodeon this summer.
