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.
