Speaking to DailyMail.com about whether his famous father would give ‘one last chance’, Jack revealed: ‘He’ll definitely put on a show’
It comes as Jack, 37, discussed his time on Fox’s boot camp reality show Special Forces: The World’s Toughest Test alongside Kelly Rizzo.
Speaking to DailyMail.com about whether his famous father would give it “one more chance”, Jack revealed: “He’s definitely going to put on a show.”
“He had surgery a few months ago and it took him a lot longer to recover than they expected.”
“The whole point of this surgery was to say, ‘do the surgery and then you’ll do the Power Trip, you’ll be fine.’
“But he had a hard time getting over it, and that’s why they had to have a Power Trip.
“I can see him doing a few shows here and there in the future, but not this year.”
Jack himself has been busy with many other projects, including his time on Special Forces: The World’s Toughest Test.
The program sees 16 celebrities tackle grueling training exercises in some of the toughest environments.

When asked how he thought his sister and parents would have gotten along, Jack replied: “They would last about four seconds.” All right. The moment someone yelled at anyone, whether it was my mother, my sister, or my father, he would have said, “And I’m leaving. »
Expanding further on his own experience, he said heights “were the least of my worries”, but that the show was “a real a**kicker”.
Jack, who was given just 10 days’ notice before appearing on the show, said: “I think as far as a celebrity reality show goes, this one is by far the hardest, the most difficult of these shows.
“I mean, Big Brother would look like a walk in the fucking park.
‘I’d say, sign me up (I’m a) celebrity… Get me out of here, sign me up. Easy days compared to this… the closest thing you can compare this to is prison.
“I’m not just saying this because of the little information that is given to you, that your life is completely governed by these higher powers, if you will, and that you are at their disposal.
“It’s like whatever they want to do with you, as long as you’re here, you’re going to do it.”
Kelly Rizzo, Jack’s Special Forces co-star, also revealed: “I had no fear of real-life challenges. What scared me was the endurance factor and sleep. How will I sleep in a room with so many people?
“Those were the two things that scared me going into it, and what was also easy, I think, was kind of having relationships and connections with a lot of people and other recruits.
“There really weren’t any weird or embarrassing situations. Everyone got along very well.

‘I think it taught me a lot of discipline, a lot about myself in terms of motivation and strength, and so I think those skills in general are very useful,” she said.
“But I have a podcast coming up called Comfort Food With Kelly Rizzo and a book I’m working on that’s half cookbook, half memoir and also has to do with Bob, so I’m excited as well by these projects, and I hope it fits together well.
Speaking about how she dealt with grief following the death of her late husband, Kelly said: “Really being surrounded by an amazing support system and just being grateful instead of being upset that I didn’t have more time – just being grateful for the time that I had – and that’s really what made me helped me through this from day one.
“I remember one of Bob’s very good friends looked at me at his funeral and he said, ‘You’ve been robbed. It is not fair. You’ve been robbed.” Even from the beginning, I tell myself that I can’t think like that.
“I don’t want to think like that because I only focus on the negative and I want to focus on the positive.”
