Wahlburgers Premiere: Donnie Wahlberg Recruits Chef Paul for Fantasy Football

Put him in, coach! On the season 2 premiere of Wahlburgers, Donnie Wahlberg and his New Kids on the Block bandmate Danny Wood must decide who should fill the last spot in their fantasy football league. Should it be Donnie's brother, Paul, whose participation could rig the competition in their favor?

In this preview scene, the NKOTB hunks realize that if Paul, who may not remember to put his picks in each week, fills a spot but neglects to play, they'd have a better chance of winning, and earning the most money for Wood's breast cancer charity. "We want someone who doesn't know anything about football," Wood told Wahlberg.

"Paul's too busy for fantasy football—this takes a real commitment," Jenny McCarthy's fiance Donnie says in agreement. Will Wahlburgers chef Paul take the fantasy bait?

Watch the first four minutes of the season premiere episode, "Here's the Drill"—featuring appearances from Mark Wahlberg and family matriarch Alma—before the show airs in full Aug. 13 at 10 p.m. (EST) on A&E.
