While the San Diego Chargers drafted former TCU cornerback Jason Verrett Thursday night, Verrett isn’t the only former Frog making waves.

Aundre Dean played in 31 games for TCU during his career at tailback (2010-12). Now, Dean is expected to be part of E!’s newest reality series Escape Club.

Escape Club is a “one-hour, real-life soap opera where men and women abandon their lives and head off to a luxurious paradise on the beaches of the Dominican Republic looking for a new destiny,” according to a press release.  

The series features 12 escapees, including a former fashion designer, a model and Dean.

“Dean was an NFL hopeful but when his dreams of playing slipped away, he unsuccessfully tried his hand at running his own company,” the release reads. “Now that both are in limbo, it’s decision time on his future." 

"Throughout [the contestants'] stay, they will be visited by someone from their lives back at home and that new guest can be anyone…friends, family, exes, crushes, enemies, first loves...promising that secrets will be revealed, bombs will be dropped and tears will be shed."

A native of Katy, Texas, Dean played in 11 games during his senior year but couldn’t make an NFL roster. After graduating TCU with a degree in broadcast journalism, Dean later tried his hand at event planning, starting a business called Supreme Greeks.

The goal of Supreme Greeks is “to provide speedy, stress free, low cost, event solution” and “work hands on with social chairs, vice presidents etc. to arrange the BEST events within your finances,” according to the organization’s Facebook page.

It’s unclear if the organization is still running based on the page.

Escape Club is expected to premiere on June 8 at 9 p.m. CST. For the full trailer, visit E!’s website here
