It’s one of the most anticipated weeks of the year for badass television.
Shark Week is almost upon us.
And this year, not only do we get sharks, we get a bit of muscle to go along with it.
According to CNN, Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson is going to be the first ever Master of Ceremonies.
I can’t think of a better person to head up Shark Week than Maui himself!!
Mr. Johnson will be coming to us directly from his home state of Hawaii — absolutely breathtaking.
The Rock took to instagram to announce the news.
As Master of Ceremonies for this weekend’s SHARK WEEK 🦈 I brought @discovery & our @sevenbucksprod to my home of HAWAII to shoot. A LOT of hard work from sun up to sun down, but we all fun and laughed along the way. Was happy to invest our Polynesian culture into SHARK WEEK — as we consider sharks our Aumakua. Gods.therock
