iscovery Channel has brought Shaquille O'Neal on board to host the 30th anniversary of "Shark Week."

In a promo for the special, O'Neal says he thought he was hosting "Shaq Week," before adding, "but that doesn't exist."

Here's what Discovery Channel has in store for O'Neal, according to a press release:

In the hopes of securing the ultimate symbol of fame and fortune - your very own week - Shaquille O'Neal inadvertently signed himself up to be thrust into the teeth of the 30th Anniversary of Shark Week. There's only one problem. Shaq doesn't do Sharks. To overcome his fear of sharks, he's going to need some help - enter Ex-Marine and comedian Rob Riggle who will help train him at Atlantis, Paradise Island in The Bahamas for the big plunge.

Other athletes taking part in "Shark Week" include New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, and WWE star Ronda Rousey.
