Football great Victor Cruz stopped by to talk to Rach about his recent comeback after sitting out for almost two years due to multiple debilitating injuries. The New York Giants wide receiver and Super Bowl winner told Rach, “I was just excited to run out on that field,” adding that what really made things amazing for him was when he was able to “actually play and make a contribution to win the game.”
He chatted with Rach about his 5-year-old daughter Kennedy, who loves to cook and eat veggies like brussels sprouts and broccoli, and his Victor Cruz Foundation, which aims to inspire kids to get interested in STEM. On November 17, Victor and his foundation will be holding a Tailgate Face Off fundraiser joined by his fellow teammates Sterling Shepard and Damon “Snacks” Harrison, and Chef Michael Capon.
We challenged Victor to a game of “Pick 6,” a variation on Truth or Dare in which he took on challenges that included: an extremely awkward bathroom question, coaching Rach through a football play and leading the audience in a Rachael Ray cheer! Watch below to see the fun unfold.
