July 24, 2007 12:02:00 by Joe Blackmon

It’s crunch time for Shaq, the kids and the dream team, but they’re all
far from ready to meet with the Governor with their results. The kids
are making good progress, but the wheels of change are slow for Shaq
and his Wellness Wheel pilot program to get more physical education
into every school day, and for Tyler Florence, who has a last chance to
prove that the school cafeteria CAN afford a healthier, kid-friendly
menu that doesn’t resort to fast food, on "Shaq’s Big Challenge,"
TUESDAY, JULY 24 (9:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

their fitness regime. He shows them hidden-camera videos that expose
the lies they’ve been telling about working out, when they’ve actually
been goofing off or not even showing up for exercise time. Shaq
introduces his new weapon in his battle for their health — a
take-no-prisoners personal trainer, Tarik Tyler, who immediately makes
his presence felt. Kit is so overcome with emotion during the training,
