Cincinnati Bengals legend Chad Johnson isn’t one to back down from a challenge. He’s raced a horse, rode a bull, and tried his hand at competitive soccer. And now it looks like he’s eyeing a new challenge – flight.
This week, Chad Johnson was a judge at Red Bull Flugtag, where participants launch homemade, human-powered crafts off an elevated platform and into a body of water, attempting to remain in the air for as long as possible.
After the event, we caught up with Ochocinco and asked what it would take to get him on one of the aircrafts next year. And he had a pretty blunt response: “Not much.”
By the way, @ochocinco sounds fully convinced that he can win this competition and doesn’t rule out giving it a shot next year.
“I think my creativity can get me about 60 feet.”

“During the judging, I got a little irritated. Because I think my creativity can get me about 60 feet,” Johnson told us. “I’m not going to say anything now. I’m going to talk to the higher-ups and see if I can not only judge next year but if I can enter the contest during the contest, then go back to judging.”
But that doesn’t mean he’s going to reveal his secret to success, because he doesn’t want to give his competitors an edge.
“I’m not going to reveal it yet,” Johnson said. “Because if I tell you, then everyone else will succeed.”
We’ll have to see if Johnson follows through, but we certainly wouldn’t put it past him given his history.
