Duane Chapman, who is more commonly known as ‘Dog The Bounty Hunter’, is hotly tipped to be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house. But booking the Hunter proved challenging for BB Executives.
The American’s past jail sentences almost ruined his chances of taking part in the upcoming Celebrity edition of Big Brother.
Dog’s ‘colourful’ string of convictions include being sent to jail for murder. The Bounty Hunter only served eighteen months out of his original five year sentence, due to the fact that he wasn’t the one to pull the trigger. In Mexico Duane captured a pervert who has a track record of sexually abusing women, but was later sent to jail for his actions, due to the fact that Bounty Hunting is illegal in Mexico.
For the past eight years Duane has stared in his own reality series “Dog The Bounty Hunter” which focuses on him and his 5th wife Beth, as they chase criminals and bring them to justice. During it’s eight seasons, the show enjoyed global success, being aired in countries including America, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany and New Zealand. However, despite success, the series was axed back in May this year.
Speaking of the Hunters place in the Big Brother house, a CBB insider stated “To say he’s had a colourful past would be an understatement. He’s been to prison so many times. The Celeb Big Brother house will probably be easy for him.”
Revealing how hard it was to secure Housemate status for Duane, they added “No housemate has ever had a criminal record quite like this.”
“It was touch and go whether or not he’d be able to take part.”
“It was only finalised at the 11th hour.”
However, despite his track record, Dog’s place in the house has reportedly been secured, and he is expected to become a Housemate on Wednesday, during the launch night of Celebrity Big Brother.
Other celebrities expected to join Duane are Coleen Nolan, Julie Goodyear, Julian Clary and Martin Kemp.
