What's Bam Margera currently doing? It seems like he disappeared overnight. But Bam Margera's career has never really been expected or conventional. The skateboarder first rose to fame in the CKY videos, where his skateboard stunts and goofy humor won him plenty of fans. From there, it was straight to MTV's Jackass, and eventually, his own string of reality TV shows. But that charmed existence couldn't last. Since the height of his popularity in the mid-2000s, the skateboarder has fallen on some hard times. Bam Margera now struggles with alcoholism, and has lost close family and friends.

When he appeared on VH1's Family Therapy, Bam agreed to stop drinking so he could get to the root of his issues. While discussing close friend and fellow Jackass co-star Ryan Dunn's death, Margera came clean about sneaking a bottle of vodka into the Family Therapy house "in case of emergency." He poured the bottle out in the sink in front of the cameras in a show of faith for the therapeutic process.
While making an appearance at the Secret Solstice Festival in Iceland, Bam faced the wrath of the Icelandic crew Glacier Mafia.
