[via press release from Discovery]


-- Special Two Night Event Airs Live from Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas December 5th and 6th --

(New York, NY) - Fasten your seatbelt. Paul Teutul, Senior and Paul Teutul, Junior are about to go head to head - or helmet to helmet - as they put their personal issues aside and get down to business this December 5th and 6th at 9:00pm ET/PT. But it's not just the Teutuls who will be putting their skills and their ego on the line. Jesse James, who made his television debut on the Discovery Channel, will return to the network for the first time since 2006 to take on the Teutuls. James will be joining father and son in his attempt to prove that one doesn't need the surname Teutul to win the title of master bike builder. After all, James' Discovery documentary, Motorcycle Mania, paved the road for the motorcycle revolution that hit television in the years that followed.

Jesse James and the Teutuls previously shared time on the network with their respective shows, but now these combustible characters will share the same stage for the first time. The fierce competition and live results special will test the breaking points of the Teutuls family feud and Jesse James' notoriously hot temper.

Coming on the heels of AMERICAN CHOPPER's return to Discovery Channel last year, the veteran show will take its success to new levels with its first LIVE event. In this two-night special, CHOPPER fans will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite bike after seeing the three finished products during our regularly scheduled AMERICAN CHOPPER on Monday, December 5th at 9pm ET/PT. The following evening, Tuesday, December 6th at 9:00pm ET/PT, AMERICAN CHOPPER LIVE will air straight from the strip in downtown Las Vegas, NV. What better place than Sin City to crown the winner of this unique bike building competition?

Will Senior's years of experience give him the edge? Will Junior's younger outlook lead him to victory? Or will wild card Jesse James wipe the floor with the two of them?

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.
