Sneak Peek: Watch As Bobby Bones Practices His Towboating Skills

Bobby Bones has spent the last several months filming for his first ever own TV show, BREAKING BOBBY BONES. The series premiere happened over Memorial Day weekend and now there will be two new episodes airing every Sunday night on National Geographic at 10/9 pm CT.

In each half-hour episode of BREAKING BOBBY BONES, Bones pursues his own mantra—Fight. Grind. Repeat.—by traveling to far-flung destinations across the country to find people with unique jobs, skills, hobbies and abilities. Upon arrival, he meets local everyday heroes who challenge him to conquer (or at least attempt) the tricks of their trades while exploring the triumphs and tragedies that made these heroes who they are today. Through their joint experiences, viewers come along for the ride learning what it’s like to become a tenacious stunt performer, kayak a river blindfolded and play para sled hockey. It’s an action-packed celebration of Americans who work hard, play hard and, above all, take pride in everything they do.

Bobby heads to Black Warrior River in Alabama, and Chattanooga, Tennessee on this weekend's upcoming episodes. First up is Black Warrior River in Alabama where Bobby meets Michael, a fourth-generation towboater who moves millions of tons of cargo in giant barges up and down America’s waterways. He challenges Bobby to take on the arduous tasks of a towboat deckhand, culminating in his attempt to stop an entire array of barges with just one rope. Then Bobby goes to Chattanooga, Tennessee to meet Sharae, a pioneering female truck driver who empowers and supports other women in the male-dominated trucking industry. Bobby attempts to drive her 18-wheel semitrailer without damaging any of its fragile cargo—crates of fresh eggs.
