Shaquille O’Neal is competing far outside his weight class in the second season of “Shaq Vs.”

ABC announced Wednesday that Justin Bieber is among those the NBA star will face off with in his reality competition series. O’Neal will take on the much smaller 16-year-old pop star, presumably in a singing contest.

The second season of “Shaq Vs.” will take the focus off athletic competitions. O’Neal will have a cook-off with Rachael Ray and a hot-dog-eating contest with competitive eating champion Joey Chestnut.

He will also race Dale Earnhardt Jr., try magic with Penn&Teller, and box Sugar Shane Mosley.

O’Neal says: “I’m out to prove that I can compete beyond athletics. … There’s no challenge bigger than me.”

The second season premieres Aug. 3.
