Bounty Hunter’ celebrates 100th episode

“Dog the Bounty Hunter” fan Theresa Sandlin volunteered all day to get a chance to meet Duane “Dog” Chapman, Beth Chapman and (her favorite) Leland Chapman in Waikiki to celebrate the 100th episode of their reality show. “I’ve been dyin’ for this,” said Sandlin, posing for a photo with Leland. “I watch faithfully — since day one.”At the reception and 100th-episode screening at Level 4 Ultralounge Wednesday night, a benefit for March of Dimes Hawaii, the Chapmans greeted fans and shared a massive three-piece cake in the shape of the number 100.

Making it this far “means a lot,” said Leland. “This is not only our job, but it’s also part of our lifestyle. We’re pouring everything into it.”

Beth agreed, and credited the island setting for attracting mainland viewers. “It is thrilling; this is a landmark seldom reached by reality stars.”

The Chapmans have recovered nicely from the temporary suspension of the show by A&E last year. Current Season 5 ratings are higher than previous years, with more than 3 million viewers. The hard edge and subsequent empathy with which the Chapmans approach each bounty is definitely part of the appeal. But who else could do it this way? After all, noted Beth, “We’ve been on both sides. We’ve been the cop and robber.”

  1. I noticed in the last episode that Beth looked like she has lost alot of weight.Has she?

  2. Why is it that good law abiding Americans are entertained with this foolishness? This Shreik and his ogre wife are running rampant all over the place looking for criminals and they are two of the biggest criminals.
    They are rude, sinister and obnoxious.
    This annoying man who likens himself as an animal seems to be very miserable, with his dank, swampy, and reeking appearance is NO good representation of a officer of the law. His wife {the female dog] who seems more barbarous, brutal and uncultivated, as her husband abandons her responsibilities to her children only to run behind her husband chasing criminals {wow! what a mother!} These two people are nuts, and they should be arrested themselves. Who’s celebrating the 100 th episode of this crap? NOT ME.
    This show will loose it’s grip very soon!!!!!
