Johnny and Michelle Damon
Damon and his wife Michelle said in an interview that the idea to appear on the show initially came in an email that was sent to her business partner.
“The South of France, we hadn’t done that before, so we thought it would be great,” Johnny Damon said in the 2019 interview with SI.com.

He added: “Yeah this was kind of new to us. We heard of the show but hadn’t seen it, so we went and watched one show and said ‘oh perfect, it’s all about the crew we don’t have to worry too much.’”
Damon added in the interview that it was a very “different” experience than being a professional athlete.
“I guess we were expecting a camera to be in our faces, so when it wasn’t we were saying ‘huh, this is very simple,’” he told SI.com.

“But, you know having the camera on you on the baseball field was like an old hat to me.
“I got so used to it and played so many games. This was definitely a different experience.”
Damon, an outfielder, played for seven different teams in his baseball career, winning the World Series with the Boston Red Sox in 2004 and with the New York Yankees in 2009.
