The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this (relatively) tamer installment in brothers Real and Chance's reality franchise follows the guys as they chase legendary beasts and handle animals like giant catfish, crocodiles, and other potentially dangerous creatures. There's lots of strong language (“hell,” “ass,” “goddamn," etc. -- though “s--t” and “f--k” are bleeped), some sexual content (suggestive dancing, references to STDs), drinking (beer, shots), cigarette smoking, and tobacco chewing. Weapons like rifles and bows are used to hunt animals; bloody animal bite wounds and old scars are sometimes visible.

What's the story?
REAL & CHANCE: THE LEGEND HUNTERS follows reality show "celebs" Real and Chance -- a.k.a. The Stallionaire Brothers -- as they travel the world searching for legendary beasts, turning their attention from finding the perfect woman toward searching for creatures like the Loch Ness Monster, the Yeti, and Big Foot. With the help of local experts, they also risk their lives trying to track down local "monsters" like man-eating catfish, bloodthirsty sharks, and giant crocodiles. It’s daunting, but the brothers are committed to learning more about these infamous creatures and are willing to fight them head on ... if it doesn’t get too scary.
Is it any good?
The Stallionaire Brothers may be best known for their roles on dating competition shows like I Love New York and Real Chance of Love, but here they demonstrate their genuine interest in animals as they work with fish noodlers, shark divers, and other animal experts to learn how to subdue and/or catch potentially dangerous creatures. They're respectful toward the people they're learning from, but they still manage to hold on to their trademark bawdy sense of humor.
Although the show is more focused on the brothers than the animals they're chasing, it's still much tamer than their previous series. Yes, there's enough strong language and iffy behavior that it's best for teens and up, but those who are old enough to watch will probably find it entertaining and funny.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about who this show is meant to appeal to -- fans of typical reality dating fare (like the shows Real and Chance previously appeared in), fans of animal-tracking shows, or both? Does it succeed?
Why do you think Real and Chance decided to do this show? Do you think that the dangerous activities they're participating in are real?
Do you think Big Foot, the Loch Ness Monster, and similar creatures are real? What leads to the creation of legends about these so-called monsters? How are they portrayed in the media?
