Speaking to DailyMail.com about whether his famous father would give it ‘one more go,’ Jack revealed: ‘He definitely is going to do a show’
It comes as Jack, 37, discussed his time on Fox’s boot camp reality show Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test alongside Kelly Rizzo.
Speaking to DailyMail.com about whether or not his famous father would give it ‘one more go,’ Jack revealed: ‘He definitely is going to do a show.
‘He had a surgery a couple months ago and it took a way longer time to recover than they were hoping.
‘The whole point of that surgery was going to be like, “do the surgery and then you’ll do Power Trip, you’ll be good.”
‘But he had a hard time recovering from it, and so that’s why they had to pull out a Power Trip.
‘I can see him doing the odd show here and there in the future, just not this year.’
Jack himself has been keeping busy with a slew of other projects including his stint on Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.
The program sees 16 celebrities tackle grueling training exercises in some of the harshest environments.

Asked how he thinks his sister and parents would have got on, Jack said: ‘They would last about four seconds. Okay. The moment someone yelled at any one of whether my mom, sister or dad, they would’ve been like, “And I’m out.”‘
Elaborating further on his own experience he said that the heights ‘were the least of my worries,’ but that the show was a ‘total a** kicker.’
Jack, who was given just 10 days notice that he would be appearing on the show, said: ‘I think as far as a celebrity reality show goes, this by far is the toughest, hardest of those shows.
‘I mean Big Brother would seem like a walk in the f***ing park.
‘I’d be like, sign me up [to I’m A] Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, sign me up. Easy days compared to this… the closest thing you could compare this to is jail.
‘I’m not just saying that because of how little information you’re given, how your life is completely governed by these higher powers, if you will, and you’re at their disposal.
‘It’s like whatever they want to do with you, as long as you’re there, you’re going to do it.’
Jack’s Special Forces co-star Kelly Rizzo also revealed: ‘I didn’t have any fear of the actual challenges. What scared me was the endurance factor and sleeping. How am I going to sleep in a room with this many people?
‘Those were the two things that scared me going into it, and also what was easy was I think, kind of, relating to and bonding with a lot of the people and the other recruits.
‘There was really no weird, awkward situations. Everyone kind of got along really well.’

The blogger, 44, whose husband Bob Saget passed away last year, was then asked how she hoped to use Special Forces to catapult the rest of her career.
‘I think that this just taught me a lot of discipline, a lot about myself in terms of my motivation and strength, and so I think just those skills in general are very useful,’ she said.
‘But I have a podcast coming out called Comfort Food With Kelly Rizzo and a book that I’m working on that’s half cookbook, half a memoir and it has to do with Bob as well, so I’m excited for those projects too, and hopefully this just dovetails in nicely.’
Speaking about how she has been dealing with the grief following the death of her late husband, Kelly said: ‘Really being surrounded by an incredible support system as well as just being grateful for instead of being upset that I didn’t get more time – just being grateful for the time that I had – and that’s really what’s gotten me through it since day one.
‘I had one of Bob’s really good friends at his funeral I remember looked at me and he goes, “You got robbed. It’s not fair. You got robbed.” Even from that early on, I’m like, I can’t think like that.
‘I don’t want to think like that because that’s just focusing on the negative and I want to focus on the positive.’
