Terrified by a Turtle on 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters' (VIDEO)

Terrified by a Turtle on 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters'Question: Why did the turtle cross the road? Answer: To get picked up by two easily frightened rappers. At least, that's what takes place on the premiere of 'Real and Chance: The Legend Hunters' (Sun., 9PM ET on VH1).

But this point, you may have some additional questions. In fact, you might be saying something like this: "Real? Chance? Legend? Hunters? ... What?" These are all excellent points to bring up, so kudos!

"Real" and "Chance" are two former contestants from the dating show 'I Love New York.' They're rappers, and they are also brothers. And now, they have their own wildlife-related reality series on VH1, where they track down mythical and not-so-mythical animals. Why? ... Why not? Or at least, "Why not?" was the thinking on the part of VH1 executives -- and it's too late to stop the show now, so we may as well just go along with it.

On the premiere episode, the brothers head to Oklahoma, in search of a legendary 130-pound catfish named "Lee's Monster." But before they get anywhere near the catfish, the guys are distracted by a very, very tiny turtle that's trying to cross the road in front of their car.

At this point, it might be helpful to mention that Real and Chance know nothing about the outdoors, cannot pitch a tent and are even scared of insects. They pick up the turtle and put him in the car, in an effort to "take him to a better place" -- like a pond, or something.

Within seconds, though, the rappers decide that the turtle might be a "snapping turtle." (He's not. He's a harmless box turtle.) Complete and utter terrified incompetence is the result. Will the brothers survive their encounter with the Turtle of Doom?*

(*The answer, by the way, is yes. And we have to say this: even though this show is very dopey, we find the concept -- a nature show featuring hosts who are frightened by nature -- to be somehow inherently entertaining.)
