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.
First up this Sunday at 10/9 pm CT. Bobby heads to San Francisco to meet Giuseppe, a third-generation boat captain, who introduces him to the struggles—and dying art—of deep-sea fishing. The question is whether Bobby will be able to stomach the big waves long enough to haul in 500 pounds of fish? Then next up Bobby travels to Idaho to attempt kayaking the white-water rapids of the Payette River. His instructor is Lonnie, an “adaptive adventurer” who is completely blind. Bobby has a tough time putting his new skills to the test on Class III rapids but really has to bring it when Lonnie challenges him to navigate the waters blindfolded.
