Jimmie Allen will host The Jimmie Allen PBA Challenge presented by Bowlero, a celebrity bowling event, on Oct. 5 at Bowlero Matthews in Matthews, North Carolina.
With a live show beginning at 5 p.m. CT and bowling beginning at 7 p.m. CT, the event will feature performances from Allen along with Chris Young, Chuck Wicks, and Neon Union. They will be joined by Terrell Owens and Darius Rucker on the lanes later in the evening. The country stars will also be competing alongside PBA Tour stars Pete Weber, Kyle Troup, Sean Rash, Ronnie Russell, and AJ Johnson.
Each artist will be paired with a PBA player for a doubles competition, with the artists bowling the odd-numbered frames and the PBA players bowling the evens. In addition to the main tournament, the event will feature a Celebrity Super Clash, in which each celebrity rolls one shot and the lowest score is eliminated in each round until only one celebrity remains.
“Since the moment my friend Cortland Finnegan introduced me to bowling, I’ve been hooked,” Allen comments. “I’ve been a fan of the PBA for years as a viewer. But I’m excited for the next part of my journey with the PBA, and that is to make bowling a worldwide sport with the same respect that’s given to basketball, baseball, and football.”
Allen discovered his love for bowling during the pandemic, calling it his “pandemic passion.” After being introduced to the sport, he quickly made it a goal to become an expert, bowling several hours a day in different cities while on tour in addition to at home in Nashville. He currently belongs to five bowling leagues and plans to try out for the Professional Bowlers Association in 2023.
The Jimmie Allen PBA Challenge presented by Bowlero will air on Oct. 16 on Fox, varying per market before or after local NFL games.
