All of Us I have a confession...

All of Us
I have a confession to make: I've never watched this UPN sitcom, feeling annoyed that Will and Jada Pinkett Smith have their names emblazoned across its promotional billboards — they're the executive producers, but aren't really in the show.

Even the game's abrupt "On your marks, get set, disrobe!" start was exciting to Opray. "I thought that was fun," he says. "I was ready to go. Let's do it, let's go overboard. I hit the rail and jumped off the side of the boat."
