MTV’s new stunt show “Too Stupid to Die” has a Brevard tie.
Reality TV personality Chad Tepper’s back on the network with this “Jackass”-inspired show. It’s a return to MTV for Tepper, who attended Merritt Island High School.
The tongue-in-cheek trailer for “Too Stupid to Die” pretty much tells you all you’ll need to know:¬†“Warning: The stunts and the pranks you’re about to witness are performed by professionals. Don’t be a moron.”
The eight-episode series, which premieres at 10 p.m. Aug. 21 on MTV, spotlights the life of daredevil Zach Holmes, bizarre pranks and Holmes’¬†inner circle of antic-loving friends, which includes Tepper.
“This show’s going to be huge,” says Tepper. “The whole time on the show I would say, ‘Honey, you ain’t hit and heard that,'” a reference to Tepper’s music video “Aint Hit.”
Here’s a list of the cast and characters from “Too Stupid to Die:”
‚ÄĘ Zach, 26 (‚ÄúThe Stupid Genius‚ÄĚ): The mastermind, building his following on Facebook and Instagram through his fearless stunts.
