Jesper Parnevik was always an odd duck on the international golf scene, first in Europe, then on the US PGA. The Swede's nickname - Spaceman - tells you a lot about him. And today's social media tells you a lot about his family, which seems to be populated with its fair share of spacemen and spacewomen.
Soon, the whole crazy crew of Parneviks will hit television screens in a reality show. The Parneviks begins airing on March 16, at 8 p.m. on Sweden's TV3 network.
Will the Golf Channel pick it up and air it in the United States? The show was taped by/for Swedish TV so, naturally, the Parneviks and other "characters" are (mostly) speaking Swedish. But if it's entertaining enough, who knows? It could be dubbed, or maybe even Season 2 could be taped bilingually. We'll have to wait and see if the show is any good, of course.
Jesper's daughter Peg - whose full name is Ida Josefin Peg Parnevik - posted a preview video on Instagram:
Jesper and wife Mia's other children are named Penny Parnevik, Phoenix Parnevik and, I'm not making this up, Pebble Peach Philippa Parnevik. Who presumably goes by Philippa, not by Pebble Beach.
Jesper comes from an entertainment family. His father is a famous-in-Sweden impersonator named Bosse Parnevik.
The Parneviks TV series was taped at the family home in Florida beginning last October.
With this crew, one thing we can probably say for sure is that whether the show is good or bad it will at least be entertaining.
