98 Degrees singer Jeff Timmons has collaborated with Jessie " Mr Pec-Tacular" Godderz, a professional wrestler who also competed on two seasons of "Big Brother" for a pop song called "The girl is with me".
"We met on LinkedIn. And we were going to work on something together, but it didn't work out. But we became friends," Godderz told people.com.
Timmons said with a laugh: "What Jessie is too kind to tell you is that I asked him to work on something and he turned me down."
"I asked him if he wanted to work on (Timmons' male revue reality show) 'Men of the Strip'. And he was like, 'Absolutely not. It's not a good look for me'."
"So I asked if he could sing and he was like, 'I'm not a singer'," continued Timmons.
"But I said, 'Hey, let's give it a shot'."
Godderz, who had never sung publicly before, was hesitant to get into the studio.
"Jeff helped coach me through it. He was fantastic to work with," he said.
