Dog's team is famous for their unique investigations of America's small-town fugitives. Now A&E turns the tables to get the Inside scoop on them.
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is blue.
My favorite color would be blue.
My favorite color is pink, because when I had a little baby girl, I was so excited to dress her in pink that I just fell in love with it and to this day I still wear it every day.
How many pets do you own? What kinds of animals are they? What are their names?
I own one dog, his name is Shadow. And I have a whole gang of fish and all kinds of fish tanks, freshwater and saltwater.
We got fish at the office now. I used to have a Llasah Apso dog named Chewy, and a little Chihuahua named Chip. But when I got divorced I lost all my pets. So I'm starting over now.
I have one dog and one cat. I really really love my cat, my dog I'm not too fond of. I basically just got him for the kids. I really like cats because they're really quiet and they don't mess with me too much.
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food would have to be breakfast food. Just pretty much anything to do with breakfast, I like.
My favorite food would be grilled chicken and brown rice. I love it. I could eat it every single day for every meal. I think I do eat it every single day.
I don't really have a favorite food. I like all food. I'm a total food freak. I really like Italian food, pastas, shrimp, lobsters. I like to cook spaghetti, its awesome [but] it takes all day. I like to make homemade chilli. I like to make Portuguese bean soup. You know there's like so many things. But things that take all day long to make...a big long meal that you smell all day and the smell's around the house...that's my favorite. Food is just such a big deal to me. I could never pick one thing that I like. I love all food.
What is your favorite video or computer game?
My favorite video game right now would have to be NHL 08 because I'm currently the champion. My brother, he can't beat me. So until they come out with a new one, that's my favorite one for now.
Hockey. 'Cause I whup my brother Leland at it every single day. No matter where he's at we jump online and play each other.
Oh my god...I love Tetris. I love Tetris. I have it on my phone. I have it on my PDA, on my computer. I play Tetris constantly. Tetris is the bomb.
Tell us about your tattoos. There's a story behind each one isn't there? Tell us how many, what they are and when you got your first one?
Yes I have plenty of tattoos. I've got a couple on my arms. I've got a sleeve going on and I've got a partial sleeve on [the other arm]. I've got a few tattoos on my back. Would I ever consider on getting on a new one, yes I would. I'm actually waiting for my new tattoo right now, so as soon as I can get my appointment date which is around the corner, I'll have a new one soon.
I've got one tattoo on my shoulder of a cross with crown of thorns around [it].
I have a couple tattoos. I have a colorful tribal one on my back and I have one...no wait, I only have one tattoo. Sorry dad there's only one I swear to God. Ok next question.
My favorite band of all time would be Sublime. And I like Blink 182 and stuff like that.
Linkin Park. I really like them. When I'm working out or anything, I can just put some Linkin Park in and just jam the whole hour.
My favorite musician of all time would have to be Janice Joplin because it's the greatest music to listen to...love Janice Joplin and my favorite band would be the Steve Miller Band.
Scarface I think is my ultimate favorite movie. I like the whole story of it. You know, the guy came from nothing. He didn't build his way in a very legal way, but when he did, he made it to the top of his game.
Gladiator. It's my all-time favorite. Except the end of it, when he dies, I hate it. But 'til that part, it's my favorite movie, but after he dies, I hate the movie.
Lord of the Rings, all versions. I can watch those for days and days. And at home we like to put them on and have a Lord of the Rings marathon sometimes. Once a year, we throw them all in and watch them back to back.
Favorite cartoon character?
Garfield. I like him, he's cool.
When I was younger, growing up, my favorite cartoon was Voltron. What I liked about Voltron is the team really had to come together, they had to have the green lion, the blue lion, all of them had to come together to make Voltron. If one fell, they couldn't make Voltron. So they had to be a team, and that was always cool to me when I was young. And Thundercats! I did like Thundercats. Don't get me wrong, I did like Thundercats. Thundercats and Voltron were side by side.
My favorite characters are The Angry Beavers. There was a show on Nickelodeon, it wasn't on very long. It was about these two beavers. It was great, I loved it. One was smart and the other one was stupid so one would get the other one into trouble all the time, and they'd build a house and one would break it then they'd build a new house...Angry Beavers man.
Favorite childhood toy or game?
Cops and Robbers.
My favorite childhood game was...Beat Up My Brother, it was called. And Leland would run around, and I would try to find him, and if I found him I would beat him up. That was my favorite game of all time. Out of nowhere, I would just start counting one, two - and he knew he had till seven to run and hide, 'cause by ten he was beat. That's why he's very good at hiding now. 'Cause he had to hide. He hid in the dryer when I was younger, he hid underneath the car. In the refrigerator. Every place that kid could hide he would go. But I always found him.
My favorite childhood toy was my karaoke machine which I kept tapes in constantly and I would walk around my house singing Paula Abdul and Janet Jackson and it like never left my sight.
One person you've never met who you would like to meet?
Mike Shanahan. Coach of the Denver Broncos. I'd like to meet him. Kick it with him, drinking beer with Shanahan. Tell him what I think of how he's been calling plays lately, see if that can get us to the Super Bowl one more time. I've got it right here how to win the Super Bowl. Call me Shanahan. Call me.
The Pope would be cool.
Who was your childhood hero?
Bruce Lee. Bruce Lee is the man. I watched all his movies, read all his books. He's had a unique life and everybody respected him.
My favorite hero of all time is John Ellway. With the Denver Broncos, I like the Broncos. My favorite sports team, in the world.
If I were an animal I would be...
I would want to be a lion. The king of the jungle.
I'd be an orca. A killer whale. 'Cause they are the meanest freaking sea creatures around. Killer whales, they hang in pods, they freaking hunt, they play with their food, I mean everything about an orca is incredible.
I would be a bird because birds can fly around all day and I would love to be able to fly. And they have such pretty feathers and they make pretty songs.
People tell me I look like...
That guy on tv...
People tell me I look like Brad Pitt when I go like this. [PUTS HAND ON CHIN] No, I don't know. People tell me I look like me. No one's ever told me I look like anyone. Who do I look like?
I look like my dad a lot. When I see people they say "you look so much like your dad...." I think it's nice when they say that.
The biggest influence in my life has been...
I've had several of them. But I would probably say my dad. He's the closest, the one around me.
Probably my daughter because she's taught me so much.
What is your favorite way to relax when you're not working?
The beach. All the time.
My favorite way to relax when I'm not working is fishing. Man, give me a couple fishing poles and my son right next to me, life don't get better than that.
My favorite way to relax is to just turn on the TV, watch TV, completely zone out and just sit on my couch with not a care in the world. I like to watch the Nanny, that makes me relax...I like to watch Sex and the City. I watch Dog the Bounty Hunter constantly..
