“Dog and Beth on the Hunt” is a new show for “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” Duane Chapman. In this new series Dog and his wife Beth go home to Colorado to help the booming bonds businesses in their home state. According to UnReality.com on Oct. 27, Dog opened up a bit about what happened with the family near the end of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” series.
This new series, which airs on CMT, has Dog and Beth working with other bond companies in Colorado who are faltering with too many “jumpers,” which refers to the folks who have jumped bail. Dog talks to the Unreality folks about Duane, Baby Lisa, and Tim, “Youngblood” Chapman.
Leland: who is seen in this new series, appears to have a good relationship with his dad. The father and son appear as close as they ever were. Leland was never the real problem when it came to getting along with his father. It was Duane Lee that was estranged from dear old dad at one point.
Duane Lee: probably won’t be on this show, but the door wasn’t shut all the way because Dog didn’t give the interviewer a straight “no.” Dog wasn’t very forth coming about Duane Lee, but when asked if he’ll be seen in this new show, Dog answered that he didn’t think so. The reason was not because the two are estranged, but that Duane Lee really didn’t like the job of hunting bail jumpers, so he got out of the business.
Dog said that even when Duane Lee was with the family chasing down people who had violated the terms of their bail, he didn’t like to do it all the time. This really doesn’t say much about their relationship, but you do learn that apparently Duane Lee wants no part of the family business.
‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’s’ Lyssa Chapman’s book reveals horrific childhood.
Lyssa: and her babies are doing just fine reports Dog. On the day he was giving this interview, Lyssa had stopped by with her “babies” earlier in the day.
Tim “Youngblood”: got custody of his five kids and moved to California, said Dog. The chances of him coming out to Colorado to be part of this show are very slim. Dog said “no” Tim won’t be seen on this new series.
New crazy family members: Dog put the emphasis on the family members the viewers will meet during this series, who they’ve never met before. He calls his family members “crazy” and tells the interviewer that there are “lots of us.” Dog is going to introduce some unknown family members on this new show, but he refused to say more, only that it is a “secret” for now.
‘Dog the Bounty Hunter’ gets custody in sad case.
What Dog and Beth and their family bring to a reality show that other families don’t is actual reality. The kids grew up and some of them navigated their way around trouble, but after that rite of passage, they’ve seem to settle down. This wasn’t something that the Chapman family tried to hide. Their shortcomings were on display, just as their triumphs were.
One example is Lyssa, with her ups and downs from the past now being part of her history. She is a mom and wife and she appears to have her wayward days behind her. Dog is someone who rose from the ashes like the Phoenix and was able to overcome problems in his own life. But unlike other reality shows, Dog embraces those years as part of the journey that brought him and the family to where they are today.
Where would the show be without Beth? She’s tough, but has a heart for the underdog and makes the perfect partner for Dog and his bounty hunting business. “Dog and Beth on the Hunt” airs on Saturday nights at 9 p.m. on CMT.
