CHRIS PONTIUS (JACKASS)
Pontius grew up skating on his family's ranch in San Luis Obispo, California. He first appeared in the second issue of Big Brother Magazine riding a skateboard down a handrail. Issue #8 featured an interview with Pontius and saw his first public appearance in the nude, when he was still under the legal age of 18. In Issue #9, he wrote an article titled "18 Ways To Be An Asshole".
Pontius worked for Big Brother until 1999, when he was fired for not showing up for a tour without notice. After parting ways with Big Brother, he drifted from job to job, including stints at Jamba Juice and working as a temp for Charles Schwab. After several months, he returned to the magazine with an article titled, "Life After Big Brother", telling of his misadventures in the 9 to 5 world. He joined Big Brother editor Jeff Tremaine and contributor Johnny Knoxville with the Jackass crew in 2000. On Jackass, Pontius often went by the monikers "Bunny the Lifeguard", "Party Boy", "Chief Roberts", "Roller Bobby", "Pontius the Barbarian", "Mr. America", "Garbage Man", "Dutch Girl", "Satan", and "Bear Johnson (The Alaskan Porn Sensation)". After Jackass ended, he starred in Wildboyz on MTV and later MTV2 with Jackass alumnus Steve-O.
