From the creators of Jackass came another gross-out hodgepodge of wild, crazy, and idiotic stunts titled Wildboyz. The hosts of this unreal reality series were former Jackass regulars Chris Pontius and Steve-O (aka Stephen Otis). These two likable jerks traveled all over the world to spread the own dubious brand of "American culture" to other peoples. Yeah, right. Actually they hopped from country to country performing dangerous and dimwitted stunts involving animals -- with the animals getting all the best of it. From swimming with sharks to zapping one another with electric eels to swiping cookies from rattlesnakes, Chris and Steve-O would do anything for a laugh, even if it killed them ("No such luck," one can hear the series' critics muttering under their breath). Occasionally joining the hosts in their puerile perambulations were their Jackass colleagues Johnny Knoxville, Manny Puig, and Jason "Wee Man" Acuna. Wildboyz was first inflicted on the public on November 2, 2003, courtesy of MTV.
