Eating at Wahlburgers, you won't get six-pack abs like Mark Wahlberg in his Calvin Klein heyday. You can, however, enjoy the vicarious (and guiltless) thrill of watching the former Funky Bunch frontman help run a burger emporium.

Wahlberg and his brothers may sign on for a reality series that would follow the opening of Wahlburger's, their recently announced Boston burger joint, according to E!.

If the deal goes through, don't look for Wahlberg and his pecs the size of dinner plates to make a major visual impact. He's not keen to be onscreen and will likely take a behind-the-scenes role in the show. Boo. What's the point of a Mark Wahlberg show where he doesn't get shirtless? That's just bad marketing.
