    On Regrets And Favorites

    u/Loovian asked: What stunt do you regret doing most? What stunt is your favorite?

    Pontius: The stunt I regret doing the most is the glove of bullet ants. That was the most dreadful thing I've done... it made me become a man. 

    Knoxville: I have no regrets! My favorite stunt is when Ryan Dunn put the toy car up his butt in Jackass 1.

    On Backing Out Of Stunts

    u/Shelby71 asked: Is there a stunt you backed out of at the last minute, and if so, what was it and why?

    Knoxville and Pontius: One day we both collectively decided not to do a stunt when we were going to go down a ski slope in Donner's Pass. There was a negative feeling on set since someone had died on the slope that day. When there is a feeling of negativity associated with a stunt, we decide to not continue with it.

    On Pain

    u/Trumbulhockeyguy asked: To both of you. How much more do you hurt now that you're older compared to doing these same stunts in your 20s/30s?

    Pontius: I think it always hurts the same. I think it's important to pick and choose when you get hurt, and not too much at once. 

    Knoxville: I agree. It doesn't hurt [any more] now than it did then. Especially because I'm not very in touch with my body.

    On Party Boy's Origins

    u/TonyVenture asked: Pontius, how did Party Boy come about? Do you still have the thong?

    Pontius: [The] Party Boy idea just kind of fell from the sky. I had a thong, bow tie, and cuff links, and it just fell from the sky into my head. If anyone wrote it, I would say it was God... Yes, I still have my bag of thongs that have never been far from my side because you'll never [know] when I might need one. Many different styles for any situation.

    On The Dangers Of Even The Smallest Stunts

    u/ToasterDispenser asked: What's a stunt that seems unassuming but caused the most problems/injuries?

    Knoxville: I had to go to the hospital once when me and another cast member ran at a tree with the pole from the pole vault. I was on one end, the cast member was on the other and we wanted to see what would happen running into the tree full speed. Well... I ripped the webbing of my hand and had to get 20 stitches. Sometimes you get hurt on the small stunts.

    Pontius: On Wildboyz, this gaucho pulled me from the horse and my ankle was stuck in the stirrup. Gave me a small fracture, all because this little man was jealous of my relationship with the steed!

    On Wildboyz

    u/FoxMcLOUD420 asked: Pontius, what are the chances of a Wildboyz reboot? Loved the series growing up as a kid...

    Pontius: I would love to do a Wildboyz reboot. I don't think it will be called Wildboyz, but I would love to do another nature/adventure show, and I want Knoxville to be on it with me.
