'Dog The Bounty Hunter' Lends His Support To The NOH8 Campaign

The bounty-hunting Chapman family may, at first glance, seem unlikely advocates for gay marriage, but on " Dog The Bounty Hunter " (Wed., 10 p.m. EST on A&E) they threw their weight behind the NOH8 Campaign . To help get across the NOH8 misson of promoting marriage, gender and human equality, the Chapmans participated in a photo shoot for the organization. They wrote "NOH8" on their faces and then duct-taped their mouths shut. Duane Lee said watching his step-mother Beth get her mouth duct-taped was the best part of the day. "I think I hear birds," he joked. "I never heard them, before." So why did the Chapmans join the NOH8 Campaign? "It's about peace and love and togetherness," said Dog. "So while politicians are doing their thing, we're gonna do our thing." "Dog The Bounty Hunter" airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m. EST on A&E.

Dog The Bounty Hunter Hears Shocking News When He Tries To Help A Fugitive

People turn to crime for any number of reasons, and Duane "Dog" Chapman and his team of crack bounty hunters don't often get to hear their perps' backstories. However, on Wednesday night's " Dog The Bounty Hunter " (Wed., 10 p.m. EST on A&E) Chapman was filled-in on one fugitive's own personal tragedy. Chapman and the captured fugitive were sitting in the back of the vehicle, and the bounty hunter was feeling in reflective mood. He and Leland had caught their man without incident, and Chapman decided to give the forlorn-looking Jack the benefit of his advice. Duane reminded the ex-con that he could be in a lot of trouble, and he didn't want him to keep taking drugs and stay on the downward spiral that would probably conclude with him spending the rest of his life in jail. "Psychologically," he said, "I can see ... something has you beat down and you can't let it. The last thirty years of your life, you gotta make." And that's when Jack dropped the bombshell: "I got cancer, though. So it's not good." Duane immediately offered his condolences and Leland looked horrified. Then there was an awkward silence in the vehicle until Chapman asked how long he had to live. Having refused treatment, Jack said he didn't know. "Let the chips fall where they may."
