Here’s a peek at an upcoming Discovery Channel special, Jesse James: Outlaw Garage, which premieres April 9 at 10pm ET/PT. It follows former Monster Garage host Jesse James in his new life after he left California in the wake of his tabloid scandals and well-publicized divorce from Sandra Bullock, and moved back to Austin, Texas.

So he challenges them with rebuilding a 1932 Ford Roadster in just weeks — a job that would normally last almost one year. With this special, could Discovery be testing the waters to see if viewers want a new Jesse James series?

I’ve been so excited to see how the Show Us What You Got participants would do in a survival setting ever since I learned about the opportunity for survival newbies to give “the Everest of Survival” experiences a go. I am jealous that I wasn’t selected for the experience, but also a little not jealous; I’m watching this episode in a t-shirt drinking a cold, orange-flavored La Croix.
