She’s still a boss! Former Dog the Bounty Hunter star Beth Chapman and her husband, Duane “Dog” Champman, proved that they’re still the best at what they do. The couple recently negotiated the surrender of an accused rapist — and it was all captured on camera for their upcoming WGN America reality TV series Dog’s Most Wanted.
Beth, 51 and Dog, 66, were filming on location in Covington, Louisiana on March 8 and they were on the hunt for fugitive Jinel Sexton, who was wanted for alleged sexual battery of a minor. The famous husband and wife bounty hunting duo were able to negotiate Sexton’s surrender and he was booked and was taken to jail on a no bond hold.
WGN America announced Dog and Beth’s new show in January, which will follow them along as the pursue some of the country’s most wanted fugitives. “America has been captivated by Dog, Beth and their dramatic true-crime experiences for over a decade,” President of WGN America Gavin Harvey said in a statement to Deadline. “In this brand-new series, millions of Dog and Beth fans will join them on bigger hunts, pursuing more dangerous criminals, with a supporting cast of tough-as-nails crime fighters.”
News of their new series came in the midst of Beth’s recent health battle. After battling cancer in 2017, she learned that her cancer had returned in November 2018 after undergoing emergency surgery. But even throughout her cancer battle, Beth still wanted to keep working with her hubby.
“She’s still trying to get involved in my bounties and business,” Dog exclusively revealed to In Touch magazine back in December. “She’s trying to still advise me on my work, and I’m like, ‘Honey, I was Dog the Bounty Hunter before I met you, stay out of it!’ And she woke up the other night and told me, ‘You’re so damn stupid, if I die you’re going to lose the farm,’ and I said, ‘Beth, we don’t have a farm.’”
