Bobby Bones takes the title of his adventure series on National Geographic literally in a new episode, pushing himself a little beyond his limits.

In a preview of Breaking Bobby Bones airing exclusively on Sounds Like Nashville today (July 9), the popular radio jock and media personality gets officially “broken.”

The clip, which is a teaser for an episode airing airing this Sunday (July 11), Bones finds himself about 20 feet in the air, with no way to get down. It’s part of a day Bones spends in the shoes of a lumberjack, learning to climb trees and run a chainsaw for one of the world’s most dangerous professions. But the funnyman isn’t laughing this time, since a hip injury has him at the end of his figurative rope.

Through grunts and groans, Bones tries make some kind of progress — either up or down — but it’s no use. With an instructor looking on and a concerned medic on the ground, he has to make a tough call.

“I guess I have to declare that I’m officially injured,” Bones reluctantly admits. “I think I was broken.”

You’ll have to tune in to find out how the segment actually unfolds … and how Bones gets himself down. But fans shouldn’t worry, since he’s definitely not still up there.

Breaking Bobby Bones airs back-to-back episodes Sundays at 10/9c on National Geographic, and fans can also catch the show streaming on Disney+. In other episodes, the Dancing With the Stars champ and American Idol mentor tries his hand at things like welding, being a stunt man, rock climbing, commercial fishing and more.

His syndicated radio program, The Bobby Bones Show, is still airing across the country each morning, and Bones recently joined the effort to bring a Major League Baseball team to Nashville.
