Vinnie Jones: Russia's Toughest
Vinnie Jones travels to Kamchatka to live and work with poaching police protecting the welfare of the large population of brown bears, as well as tracking local salmon poachers as they make their way along the river. Vinnie also meets some locals who race with their sled dogs and goes for a spin on the beach with a group of dedicated motorbike enthusiasts.
Vinnie Jones makes a big catch in Russia's Far East, works in a fish processing factory, and goes hunting with reindeer herders. First he joins the crew of the Captain Malyakin and heads out on the Pacific Ocean. Then, he's off to a fish processing factory. Later, Vinnie meets the men who live out in the wild, herding reindeer. It's a hard, nomadic life as they follow the herd across the tundra. As well as the sub-zero temperatures, wolves and bears are a constant threat. Vinnie helps castrate - and slaughter - a reindeer.
Starting in the main depot hub of Russia's Northern rail line, Vinnie tackles the jobs of the Russian rail worker. From dismantling the locomotive wheels to working with a blacksmith, Vinnie gets down and dirty servicing a locomotive. Then he takes it north to the end of the line. Next he's off to take part in the polar games, 100 miles inside the Arctic Circle. He joins the annual reindeer race, a 700 meter sprint on ice and snow.
Vinnie Jones joins Russia's tough bodyguards and helps protect two of Russia's richest mega stars from Moscow's ruthless kidnap gangs. He'll learn the dark art of close personal protection with elite training in firearms, hand to hand combat and team work, and will help protect a millionaire beauty queen and a billionaire pop star.
Vinnie Jones teams up with American cowboys who are a long way from home in Bryansk, Russia. Russians love their beef, so they are setting up their own beef industry with the help of some American cowboys. Vinnie's set a series of challenges, and works alongside both American and Russian cowboys as he tries to earn his spurs Russian style. But first he has to get back in the saddle and hasn't been on a horse in years. Can he hack it with Russia's tough cowboys?
Vinnie Jones joins the hard construction workers in Vladivostock, a city in far eastern Russia, which is undergoing a massive construction boom. Vinnie meets the construction gang who are building the Golden Horn Bay Bridge, and he challenges himself alongside them as they remove the struts and paint the bridge towards completion. He scales the roof of Russia's largest aquarium, lifts pipes, welds and drills holes to build a 17 story hotel, and installs glass on the city's brand new opera house. For his final challenge, Vinnie climbs nearly 1,000 feet to the top of the Golden Bridge to repair a laser for the city's light show.
