A.J. McCarron and Katherine Webb's high-profile romance will soon be hitting the small screen in the form of a reality TV show.
The former Alabama quarterback and his model girlfriend will be the subject of a reality show as they prepare for their July 11th wedding as well as his transition into the NFL. Webb's sister, Laurie, told the Auburn Plainsman that cameras were rolling during McCarron's proposal.
“From what I understood, it came from someone else," Laurie said of the opportunity. "I don’t think they were trying to get into a reality show, I think they just had the opportunity and decided to take it.”
McCarron recently proposed to Webb in Gulf Shores, Ala., where Webb thought the couple would be attending a charity event. That's why she figured there were cameras around.
Now, as the couple prepares to tie the knot as well as transition to life in the NFL, its every move will be documented. But according to Webb's father, Alan, this reality show won't stoop to the genre's often trashy reputation.
“As reality shows go," Alan told the Plainsman. "This would be a wholesome one for sure.”
Laurie Webb said networks started contacting the family after her sister's appearance on TV during the 2013 BCS national championship game, but the timing was never right. Webb was Miss Alabama 2012 but not widely known before then.
The families are scrambling to finalize wedding plans for the July 11 ceremony, which will also be filmed. Producers of the show have yet to reach an agreement with any network.
McCarron is preparing for next month's NFL draft, where he is expected to be selected in the second or third round.
