Mana. Gratitude. Tequila. And not necessarily in that order..
The wait is over. TONIGHT @nbctitangames epic 2 HOUR PREMIERE EVENT airs @8PM on @NBC??? Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to THE TITAN GAMES. Enjoy the show!
A good laugh at 40,000ft. Flyin’ back to Hawaii now to finish production on HOBBS & SHAW. Looked down at my plate and started to laugh at my plain grilled chicken and white rice and had an epiphany. Laughed cuz when I was teenager living in Hawaii, we were evicted from our lil’ $180 per week apartment and forced to leave the island. That part ain’t so funny, but what IS funny is that even back then when I was 14yrs old, my daily diet was EXACTLY THE SAME as it is today, eatin’ the same shit – plain grilled chicken and white rice ??♂️ Same kid. Same shit. Slightly better view. #ChickenAndRice #HawaiiBound??
This is LUNAR IMPACT. Easily one of my favorite challenges on our @nbctitangames. It’s will vs will. Who wants it more? Who goes home? I can neither confirm nor deny that I conceived this epically insane challenge while drinking tequila one night around 2am ? Join us for the 2 HOUR premiere event of TITAN GAMES. TOMORROW NIGHT @8PM on @NBC! ?
This is HERCULEAN PULL. I designed this @nbctitangames challenge to be extremely hard, but even harder when it’s an against opponent you can’t even see. I drive a pick up truck, so the steel bars had to be longer than my pick up… because I’m f*cking crazy that way ? Pull with all you got – Mt. Olympus awaits. THE TITAN GAMES Premieres tomorrow night on @NBC. #pull ??
This is CYCLONE. One of the many deranged challenges on @nbctitangamesCore strength. Stability. Gripping the rope while maintaining control of the 60lb steel ball will make your hands bleed. Work thru it – win – and you become a TITAN. Don’t work thru it and you go home. Welcome to THE TITAN GAMES. Premieres TOMORROW NIGHT on @NBC at 8PM!
I’m callin’ it now. The women competitors of our @nbctitangames will STEAL THE SHOW. Why? I did not alter my challenges for the women. If the men have to hammer thru a 350lbs of concrete ball. So do the women. If the men have to run thru a 1,000lb wall at Mt. Olympus. So do the women. I have too much respect for women to change it, but more importantly — they wouldn’t want it any other way ?? Because of this, the physical and mental arcs our women go thru are simply spectacular and boundlessly inspiring. They got hurt. They bled. They conquered. I’m so proud of these women. And you will be too! Join us TOMORROW NIGHT for our big 2 hour premiere of THE TITAN GAMES on @NBC. #ShesABadAss
We lost a wrestling legend on the ? microphone. The incomparable “Mean Gene” Okerlund. What an iconic career and extremely distinct voice of the squared circle during distinct eras of the smart/cool sounding “neutral” wrestling commentator. Solie, VKM, Monsoon, JR, Okerlund etc. RIP legend, strength to your Okerlund ohana and thanks for the awesome memories ~ DJ#LemmeTellYaSumthinMeanGene
To our ever growing audience around the world. I just wanna say thank you for being so nice to me and so supportive of this big kid’s dreams. I’ll continue to work relentlessly hard to bring you entertainment with a lil’ soul, heart and humor. And maybe we’ll inspire a few along the way. ~DJ ? #2019@SevenBucksProd * watch full vid in bio ☝?
If you’re successful at something – whatever it is you do. People can often misinterpret your success and think that now it becomes easy. It’s actually the opposite because now you have to work even harder to build upon what you’ve already built. So pushing thru, keep working hard, be present and take nothing for granted. Humble, hungry and always, always, always be the hardest worker in the room. 2019 here we come ✊? #raisethebar * watch full vid in bio
The Men of @nbctitangames. My goal was to find the best male athletes in America — to test and push them like they’ve never experienced before. Destroy them. Humble them. Push thru pain and blood. Because when we push thru that level of pain (hey I wrestled for 30min with a detached quadricep and adductor from my pelvis, where the only things keeping me going thru the pain was adrenaline, pride and the audience) then on the other side of that pain is where the magic happens. F*cking proud of these men. They all pushed thru pain, found their magic and walked away better. Join us for our 2HR PREMIERE of THE TITAN GAMES. THIS THURSDAY NIGHT on @NBC ???
My mind can be a very dangerous (and fun) place.. just don’t ask me about math, because I suck at that — everything else I’m brilliant at though ?? On JANUARY 3RD, the best athletes in America, enter my mind and the Titan Arena at their own risks. THE TITAN GAMES on @NBC 2HR world premiere THIS THURS! @sevenbucksprod@asmithcoprod
Cool news to share ahead of our big @NBCTitanGames premiere THIS THURSDAY. Our series will premiere same day with our @fox_Asia broadcast partners. Goal was to create a series that expanded globally and entertained the world. This is a nice start. Enjoy the show Asia. #TitanGamesOnFOXAsia@SevenBucksProd @asmithcoprod
Great homecoming for me ????♂️ After months away from home due to filming, I come back home to these Christmas gift surprises waiting for me in my office. Amazing gift from Disney commemorating over 5 MILLION WORLDWIDE SALES for our soundtrack of MOANA, on which I sang the song YOU’RE WELCOME. And a sweet little GOLDEN RAZZIE AWARD for making BAYWATCH. Categorized as — A movie so rotten and shitty, you actually fell in love with it. Hey, I take full responsibility for the ? so punch me right in the kisser for that one. #WelcomeHomeDJ#AndMerryXmas ???
This one felt good. Surprise! Bought my mom a new home for Christmas. All our lives growing up we lived in little apartments all across the country. Lived like gypsies on the road from one state to another. The first home my parents ever lived in was the one I bought for them in 1999. They divorced about 5yrs later and as with life, stuff happens and things got a little complicated. Since then I always made sure my mom and dad have everything they’ll ever need – houses, cars etc. But the house this time is a special one and the timing is very meaningful. I told her to treat this card like it’s “Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket” because she gets to choose any home she wants – anywhere she wants. I always say, if you got a good mama, then you gotta pretty good shot at becoming a decent human being. And somehow, somewhere along the line I became one lucky SOB to be able to make stuff like this happen. Merry Christmas Ma and WOOOHOOO enjoy your new home. Dwanta ??
☎️ Ring Ring. Yes, you can say holy shit. After nearly 100,000 athletes across the country applied – I only chose 64 to COMPETE on our @nbctitangames. I love makin’ calls like this and makin’ people feel good — and hey I’ll take happy tears any day – even from the dudes ??? Now the fun part… They prove themselves. TITAN GAMES premieres JANUARY 3rd on @NBC@sevenbucksprod @asmithcoprod
This is HEAVY METAL. I’ve been there so I know what it feels like when life is a f*cking uphill battle. It’s why I designed this unrelenting beast of a @nbctitangames challenge. You can look at the science and engineering of this and see how hard this challenge is — on top of that, throw in anxiety and lactic acid build up into the equation and you’ll see why this challenge I designed will break my competitors down. Yes, I’m evil ?, but who has what it takes to become a TITAN? On JANUARY 3RD the hype becomes real. TITAN GAMES on @NBC.
For our @nbctitangames I pulled together the most criminally insane engineers and scientists to create the most epic athletic challenges ever seen. I designed the challenges to break our competitors. This is HAMMERING RAM. On JANUARY 3rd the hype becomes real. TITAN GAMES on @NBC.
I don’t know why things happen to kids the way they do sometimes. I don’t know why they get challenged with such hard times. And I’ll certainly never understand what it is that makes me – their wish. BUT I do know these kids are way stronger than I’ll ever be and I also know that granting wishes and playing a very small role in making ‘em smile will always be the best part of my fame. Thank you PJ, Cameron and my little lady Lucy for blessing me with your presence and awesome spirits. Happy Holidays kiddos, stay strong and thanks for making me such a lucky dude. #OnSet#HobbsAndShaw #WishGrantingDay???
Ever hate someone so much you wish you could kill them with your eyes. While working out yesterday, I looked down at my phone and saw that my little chocolate biscuit shit son @kevinhart4real started IG’ng LIVE. I just had to stop in and say I love you and how proud I am of all his success and accomplishments. #mypebble ?
Funny this all started one night when my sippin’ tequila & crazy ideas collided ?? Takes 1st sip: I got an idea. I wanna create the most insane athletic competition series EVER devised. Takes 2nd sip: Is a crazy idea like this even possible? Takes 3rd sip: You live in the world of possibilities, DJ. Takes 4th sip: I do, don’t I? Takes 5th sip: Yes, you do, handsome. Takes 6th sip with devilish smile?: Let me make some calls. Takes full shot: I’m quite sure I need some form of therapy. @nbctitangames WORLD PREMIERE JANUARY 3rd on @NBC.@sevenbucksprod @asmithcoprod
I’m pullin’ back the curtain to reveal an exclusive inside look at our @nbctitangames. Thousands upon thousands applied, but I only chose 64 for their shot to show the world they got what it takes to become a TITAN. Watch the first episode of our new docu-series #WhateverItTakes in my bio. Then join us for our big 2 hour TITAN GAMES PREMIERE EVENT on JANUARY 3rd on @NBC. @sevenbucksprod@asmithcoprod
I mean how lucky of an SOB am I, that I got little Lucy singing a song from MOANA to me. Especially after she put on her “super power” glasses ? ?? Very special Wish Granting Day. I was their wish, yet they made my Christmas. Check the ? in my bio to watch the amazing time we all had. Happy Holidays ~ DJ
Daddy’s arms. I ain’t gonna be able to hold ‘em like this forever, so you better believe I snatch these cookies and love ‘em up every moment I can. Plus, I know there’s gonna come a day where in daddy’s arms is the last place they want to be. Baby Tiana Gia is already there with the “help me” look on her face ???♂️ Can’t guarantee I’ll love and protect all my daughters for the rest of their lives, but I can guarantee I will for the rest of mine. #xmas #daddysarms#helpme
I train. @underarmour shoots. Leave me the f*ck alone. It’s a wonderful set up ? 20 reps single leg. 50% fatigue double leg. Music thru my ?’s only so I can focus — while the crew gets to listen to my silly inaudible animal grunts which is clearly the equivalent to having an orgasm in your ears. And in my world, we pay daily because the MF’n RENT’S DUE.#Wheels #ProjectRock #UnderArmour#BendBoundariesCollection SPRING 2019
It ain’t pretty, no glossy polish or fake camera set ups. It’s hard work or get the f*ck outta my gym. Wrapped our #ProjectRock BEND BOUNDARIES COLLECTION commercial shoot for @underarmour. As with all of our @underarmour spots that’s created by our Seven Bucks advertising company, @sevenbuckscr — I want to disrupt the traditional method of marketing that’s always presented and create something new, different, raw, uncut and directly from my DNA. No fancy gym set ups, no fancy camera tricks and quick cutaways. At the end of the day, it’ll always come down to me putting every single piece of gear to the test personally before I deliver it to you. Real, raw and authentic. As always, THANK YOU for making #ProjectRock, @underarmour’s #1 seller. I’m nice, but when it comes to my business I don’t play nice. Ever.#ProjectRock #UnderArmour#BendBoundariesCollection SPRING 2019
Thanks International @forbes for the cover. My brand growth has been nice and strong over the years across all ? markets. Been building one brick at a time since 2000 because I never wanted to just play in the game, but rather change the way the game is played. Still so much more work to be done. Onward. Upward. #Forbes #HighestEarner#SevenBucksEnterprises#TequilasOnMe ?
PJ: But I don’t have an X-Box ? Dwanta: You do now ?? Here’s a little peek at our very special Christmas Wish Granting Day on set of Hobbs & Shaw. For some reason well beyond my comprehension, children from all over the world who are struggling thru hard times with their health – have one wish – which is to meet this big, brown, bald, tattooed fella. These kids deserve this joy and so much more. I’m a lucky SOB to play a small part in their smiles. #SURPRISE#ChristmasWishGrantingDay#ProjectRock #Microsoft #Dwanta??Link to full video in bio ????
Hittin’ that fatigue zone with 3hrs sleep and pushin’ thru this lil’ Xmas workout. But Dwanta must push on, he’s got more gifts to give and holding mistletoes over his head at wildly inappropriate times tonight ? Then he needs a drink or ten??? #hohoho
Kinda like heaven I guess. This moment of carrying Jazzy downstairs as she sees her toys for the first time that Santa left her is truly one of my greatest joys. When I was a kid I saw Willy Wonka (one of my all time favs) and I’ll never forget that feeling when I saw the kids faces of awe when they walked into the Chocolate Factory for the first time. Now years later, I (very selfishly) try and create that feeling with children and people anytime I can. As cool as I’m being in this vid, on the inside I’ll always be one of those awestruck kids from Willy Wonka. You know, the little brown, buck toothed boy with an afro who had features so soft people often mistook him for being a little girl. True story, but I digress and clearly need therapy. Simply put, I live for movements like this and I’m one lucky SOB to make them happen. Merry Christmas everyone and sending a ton of Dwanta Claus luv your way. Wait til’ Jazzy see’s the surprise carousel that’s waiting in the backyard ???❤️#DaddyLuv #DwantaNeedsTherapy
And with that, Dwanta Claus is comin’ to town! See ya tonight…??
