Magic Mike is coming to the small screen! For Jeff Timmons, helping to create a new male dancer-stripper revue in Las Vegas was an easy decision. The former 98 Degrees singer dropped by Us Weekly’s NYC headquarters recently with his shirtless (!) stripper pals Keith Webb and Kyle Efthemes to preview their upcoming reality movie event, Men of the Strip.
“The thing that fascinated me about being a part of this was the guys and the behind-the-scenes aspects of their lives. What they do, how they interact, how their families interact, what people think,” Timmons, 41, told Us of joining the crew. “Some of the pre-conceived ideas you have that are associated with the male revue—once you see the show, those go out the window.”
The trio went into detail about the ladies that come to have a good time at their Las Vegas shows, but Webb admitted he’s got a specific No. 1 fan—his mom. “She’s very proud,” he said. “But my grandparents are like devoted Christians—my brother’s a pastor and he hasn’t even seen [the show].”
The special, however, won’t just be all fun and games. According to Efthemes, the behind-the scenes moments that Timmons speaks of will also be drama-filled. “To put the group of guys that we have together in a show and tour and being around each other 24/7, it’s really amazing how we can respect each other,” he said. “But, you will see some drama on the show. You’re going to see some of us butt heads multiple times.”
The two-hour reality movie event airs Sunday, June 1 at 10 p.m. EST on E!
