FUN-SEEKER BERT KREISCHER RETURNS FOR ALL-NEW HEART-POUNDING THRILLS IN TRAVEL CHANNEL'S "BERT THE CONQUEROR"

Season Three Premieres Tuesday, June 7 at 8:00 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK (May 9, 2016) - Professional fun-seeker and travel enthusiast Bert Kreischer is back, braving some of the wildest, tallest, most adrenaline-pumping rides, and competing in some of the wackiest challenges in North America in Season Three of Travel Channel's "Bert the Conqueror." Premiering with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, June 7, at 8:00 p.m. & 8:30 p.m. ET/PT, the 14-episode run follows Kreischer as he takes on the country's most epic rides. This season, the thrills and excitement are bigger and more daring than ever as Kreischer showcases the fun and ingenious side of the continent with a smile, a laugh and more than a few screams.

"Some of the most fun I've ever had has been filming 'Bert the Conqueror,'" said Kreischer. "As a stand-up comedian, I love putting this humorous spin on travel, and I get the added bonus of using all these wild adventures in my act. If there's an adrenaline rush, I will find it; if there's an anxiety attack, I will have it."

In the season premiere at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, Kreischer heads to Six Flags New England in Agawam, Mass., to take on two record-breaking rides: the Wicked Cyclone, the park's new hybrid coaster featuring the most airtime on the East Coast; and the New England SkyScreamer - at 400 feet tall, it's the highest swing ride in the world. Then, he travels up to Rockland, Maine, to compete in the Maine Lobster Festival's Great International Lobster Crate Race - a maritime festival pastime that's a lot harder than it looks!

Kreischer tackles over-the-top attractions and rides all summer long, with upcoming adventures in California, Canada, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia and Washington.
