The Doctor Is In: ‘Jackass’ Steve-O Cures Patients With Crazy Stunts

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Usually it’s Jackass daredevil Steve-O who’s in need of a doctor, but for his latest TV project, Steve-O is tending to his own set of wild patients.

Steve-O – best known for his ball-busting stunts on MTV’s Jackass – is starring in a new reality show called Dr. Steve-O, where he attempts to “de- wussify” wimpy guys by getting them to do a variety of crazy, outrageous stunts designed to shock them out of their shells.

But although picturing Steve-O as a doctor may seem like a stretch, he insists his “crazy regimens” have helped contestants find their inner badass.

Says Steve-O: “These guys come in super scared but have a great time doing crazy stunts. Out of 21 guys, 18 of them left happy and brave, which was awesome to see.”

And while the Steve-O recommended stunts are sure to stun viewers, the show ended up stunning Steve-O too.

He adds, “These guys changed so much and I didn’t expect to get the warm, fuzzy feeling that I got each time they accomplished something. I like to call it my reverence for good, not evil!”

Dr. Steve-O, also starring The Real World’s Trishelle Cannatella, premieres Monday (Oct. 1) on the USA Network.
