Watch Pros vs. Joes

Pros Versus Joes is a sports based reality competition television program that has aired for four seasons. The concept of the show is to have average sports fans and weekend warriors go head to head in a variety of sport competitions against former and sometimes current professional athletes. The show has been hosted by Petros Papadavis and more recently co-hosted by Michael Strahan and Jay Glazer.

Each season has had its own designed style of competition. One constant of each year is that the Joes tend to really lay on trash talk to the pro athletes and are mostly put in their place fairly quickly. In each episode they start with 6 Joes contestants and have an elimination round where two of them are eliminated before they even get to face the Pros. The first year featured many different athletes from different sports for a ten episode season. Year one featured notable athletes such as Dennis Rodman, Jerry Rice, Jennie Finch, Bill Goldberg, Bo Jackson, Clyde Drexler, Brandi Chastain, John Rocker, Mugsy Bogues, Jim McMahon, Alexi Lalas and Rebecca Lobo. Although some of the athletes that competed were female, all of the Joe contestants were males. Some athletes, such as boxer Roy Jones Jr, would participate in challenges that didn't restrict them to just their professional sport. The final episode of that season featured returning winners of each episode compete against an all star team of that years Pros.

Season two returned with the same format. Claude Lemieux became the first hockey player to appear in the show and Robbi Ginepri was the first pro tennis player to appear. They also had a theme episode where a team of athletes were dubbed The New Yorkers because they had played part of their careers in the big apple. This team included John Starks, Dave Winfield, Mark Jackson and Wade Boggs.

Seasons three broke the competition down to several regional airings. Season four saw the special Pros versus Joes All
