Rob Mariano

He’s battled through four seasons of Survivor and competed twice with wife Amber on The Amazing Race, but ‘Boston’ Rob Mariano isn’t done with reality TV yet.

Mariano and monster truck impresario Dennis Anderson will star in a new series for History this year, PEOPLE has learned.

In Around the World in 80 Ways, Mariano and Anderson will challenge each other to circumnavigate the globe using 80 different methods of transportation with the caveat that each cannot repeat any way twice.

“I think The Amazing Race gave me a foundation for traveling,” Mariano tells PEOPLE. “However, the approach that we are taking in Around the World in 80 Ways is completely different from anything I’ve done before in that this show will be a celebration of transportation throughout history.”

 From boats to blimps to the backs of camels, is there a mode of travel Mariano fears the most? “I’m not too fond of anything that keeps me in a confined space,” he says. “That is claustrophobia.”

After the finale for Survivor: Redemption Island airs on May 14, Mariano will start production with Anderson, the creator and driver of the monster truck called Gravedigger.

Meanwhile, Amber, the winner of Survivor: All-Stars, will stay home with daughters Lucia Rose, 21 months, and Carina Rose, 4 months.

“Being away from my family is always the toughest part about doing these shows,” Mariano says. “Luckily, I have a wonderful wife that understands my thirst for adventure and consistently supports me in my quests.”


New Boston Rob Reality Show Coming Soon

 If you just can’t get enough of Rob Mariano on season 14 of Survivor: Redemption Island, you’re in luck. Boston Rob is set to star in his own reality show after the May 14th finale of Survivor.

This new Boston Rob reality show is called Around the World in 80 Ways and will begin airing on the History channel in 2011. Boston Rob told People “…the approach that we are taking in Around the World in 80 Ways is completely different from anything I’ve done before…” Rob’s experiences on The Amazing Race with his wife, Amber, has surely prepared him for the adventure that this new realty TV series will take.

Will Boston Rob’s previous background on Survivor help him when he competes against Dennis Anderson, creator of the famous Gravedigger, on Around the World? One of the goals of the new reality show is for each contestant to travel around the world using as many different modes of transportation as possible without using the same vehicles more than once.

Rob has learned how to form strong bonds with people and weasel his way into leadership in past reality shows, and it will be interesting to see if those experiences and his personality quirks will carry over into this series. Boston Rob has a way with persuasion that may help him with the new reality show, depending upon the rules and focus for the contestants. Will participants have to be innovative in travel plans like that of Amazing Race contestants? The program will be more in tune with showcasing the history of transportation, but adding Boston Rob to the mix will certainly keep viewers entertained.

Will Amber be able to join Boston Rob on Around the World? It’s not likely. She’s going to be staying home to take care of their two little girls, while Rob is out on yet another adventure.

Will you be watching when this new Boston Rob realty show premieres? Will fans watch just for the laughs that he will undoubtedly create? Just imagine Rob wearing his trademark ball cap, riding on the back of a camel asking, “Do camels spit?”
