Shaquille O’Neal always does things pretty big. After being the face of an endless amount of products and brands, he’s even the face of Shark Week right now, Shaq just announced a new reality he’ll have on Facebook about a chicken restaurant he’s opening in Las Vegas.
The new series will be called, appropriately, Big Chicken Shaq, and in between episodes, the former ball player will field questions from fans on Facebook. “It’s going to be so much fun designing my own restaurant, and I can’t imagine a better group of people to do it with than with my incredibly loyal Facebook fans,” O’Neal tells Variety. “It’s an opportunity for us to collaborate together, and I know the Facebook community will offer terrific feedback.” This is just one of several new project that the sports superstar has in the works right now.

Shaq’s Vegas restaurant will be located off the strip in a 2,800-square-foot space in the Eastside neighborhood. Per a recent Eater Vegas report, the restaurant is slated to open in October, and the show will debut later this fall.
Menu details are scarce at this point, but the Hollywood Reporter notes that fried chicken sandwiches will be part of the equation. Naturally. Just what Vegas needs, another themed restaurant. Also another reality show, ugh.
