New York, U.S.A — Payback’s a b*tch. Last December, “American Chopper” star Paul Teutul, Jr. took the title and the honor of ultimate bike builder when he won Discovery’s first ever “American Chopper” Live competition in Las Vegas. This year, his dad, Paul Teutul Sr., and “Outlaw Garage” star Jesse James return to the mix for the second ‘American Chopper’ Live (w/t) bike build-off and are out for vengeance this December 10th and 11th at 9:00pm ET/PT.
Junior and Senior have certainly been on a rocky road towards recovery this season. The feuding father and son have been trying to rebuild their once strong relationship. Now that they are once again pitted against each other, will this throw a wrench in their plan to re-create a happy family? Or will they toss all differences aside to team up and ensure a Teutul reclaims the title?
Joining the two Teutuls and Jesse James are born and bred car and bike fanatics Richard Rawlings and Aaron Kaufman from Discovery’s Fast N’ Loud. With an attempt to prove that everything is bigger and better in Texas (except for James), Rawlings and Kaufman have set their sights on taking home the grand prize (and bragging rights). Rawlings, never shy of a little trash talking, has already begun taunting Jesse James and his building capabilities to TMZ. Is he all talk or will he able to walk to the walk?
In this two-night special, ‘Chopper’ fans will once again have the opportunity to vote on their favorite bike after seeing the four finished products during our regularly-scheduled “American Chopper” on Monday, December 10th at 9pm ET/PT. The next evening, Tuesday, December 11th at 9:00pm ET/PT, “American Chopper” Live (w/t) will air from Las Vegas’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for what’s sure to be a cutthroat television event full of family drama, intense rivalry and some of the most innovative and impressive designs and construction in bike building history.
“American Chopper” is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Studios. Craig Piligian, Ralph Wikke and Mitch Rosa are executive producers for Pilgrim Studios, and Christo Doyle is executive producer for Discovery Channel.
