- 4 Seasons
Wildboyz follows Steve-o and Chris Pontious as they make their way through different countries experiencing native customs and wildlife.During the series they interact with wild animals interact with locals in rituals. On the show they dress up and run along side some of the animals, expose themselves to the somewhat painful and often smelly defense mechanisms of other animals, and try the native cuisine. Many of their interactions with the animals are dangerous and often foolish.In example, purposely getting stung by an emperor scorpion.Attaching meat to the bottom of hammock and sitting inside while lions try to eat the meat. As well as coaxing sharks with chum, and then dressing up as seals and entering a short distance away. The boys have had many close calls such as being bitten by a bear and almost being attacked by a jaguar. None of the animals in the show are tamed or hurt in the process but it is explained that nothing they are shown doing during the show should ever be attempted by anyone at home It is very dangerous to attempt anything shown.Steve-o puts a rather large fishing hook through his cheek which is an example of one of the things you should not be trying at home. Though many of the episodes show ridiculous stunts that are thought completely insane, it is also filled with educational truths about the animals and the cultures that they find themselves interacting with. Both Steve-o and Chris have become popular with both comedy lovers and animal lovers for their lack of experience or training, as well as their fearlessness and dare to try anything attitudes. Most of the native rituals and events they partake in are often some that most tourists visiting the area would not try, which makes it quite interesting to watch. They have visited over 19 countries. Sadly, due to the death of Steve Irwin, they ended the show in the 4th season stating that if it could happen to a professions they should keep in mind their own safety. Over all this show is both hilarious and educational, but it should be noted this is not a show for children or those with weak stomachs.
