Call to Greatness was a reality television show on MTV. The show aired during 2006 and ran for five episodes. In the show, a group of five men, known as "Team C2G", travelled around the United States trying to beat world records.[2][3] This included shot-putting a tuba as far as they could, furthiest distance jumping a hearse over a short bus, eating worms, beating a speed record of an unexpected item (such as the fastest living room space, built on a truck), blowing the biggest bubble gum ever, etc.

According to CTV, the group broke 33 records during the filming of the show, individually and collectively. [2]

The cast members were Andreas Wigand, Drew Bell, Ghost, Paul Prado, and Rainbow Borden.[1][4]

The son of a preacher and an artist, Ghost the rockstar of all record breakers was born on February 28 in Indianapolis,Indiana. He later moved to Atlanta,Georgia when he was a teenager.

In Late 2006, Call to Greatness was moved to MTV2. The producers of the show decided not to continue on with the series after the move due to budget restraints.
