LOS ANGELES, January 9 -- Many of sports' biggest names from the last two decades are getting their chance to payback all the loud-mouth fans and cocky couch potatoes who tormented them during their careers in season three of Spike TV's hit series, "Pros vs. Joes." The new season premieres on Spike TV with a special episode on Wednesday, January 23, 2008 at 11:00pm ET/PT featuring TNA superstar Kurt Angle.

After the special episode, the series will resume its regular timeslot on Thursdays at 11:00pm ET/PT beginning January 24. In each of the 10 episodes this season, regular guys compete in a variety of different sports against an incredible array of sports legends. Unlike in previous seasons, Spike TV shot the series at four iconic stadiums: The Rose Bowl, The Superdome, The Orange Bowl and RFK Stadium. The sixty-four contestants, or "Joes," this season are grouped into four regional brackets, with the regional winners meeting at the Rose Bowl for the finale. The final four contestants of this season's "Last Joe Standing" will compete for a six-figure cash prize.

For the first time, this season of "Pros vs. Joes" will feature a superstar athlete in the prime of his football career, former Heisman trophy winner, NFL All-Pro and current Miami Dolphin, Ricky Williams on Thursday, January 31 at 11:00pm ET/PT. Williams taped the episode in October, before re-joining the Dolphins in November.

The impressive roster for Season 3 includes a list of sports heroes ranging from Heisman trophy winners to World Series heroes to hockey and boxing hall-of-famers to an Olympic gold medalist. They include: Brady Anderson, Jamal Anderson, Kenny Anderson, Kurt Angle, Jessie Armstead, Joe Carter, Derrick Coleman, Paul Coffey, Sean Elliott, Nick Van Exel, John Franco, Arturo Gatti, Jeff George, Allan Houston, Rocket Ismail, Al Leiter, Charles Oakley, Christian Okoye, Dan Majerle, Marty McSorley, Warren Moon, John Randle, Mitch Richmond, Bob Sapp, Jimmy Smith, Pernell Whitaker, Ricky Williams, and Rod Woodson.

The series is hosted by former USC running back and Los Angeles sports television/radio personality, Petros Papadakis. Pros vs. Joes is produced by MY Entertainment and Mess Media. Serving as executive producers are Michael Yudin, President of MY Entertainment; Joe Townley, COO of MY Entertainment; and Scott Messick, President, Mess Media; Sharon Levy and Tim Duffy are Executives in Charge of Production for Spike TV.
