Jesse James ReturnsJesse James is returning to the Discovery Channel for one very epic showdown. James, who was last seen on Discovery in 2006, will go head-to-head with Paul Teutul Senior and Paul Teutul Junior in 'American Chopper Live.'

The two-night event airs Dec. 5 and 6 at 9PM ET on Discovery.

The Teutuls and James will be competing for the title of master bike builder. On Mon., Dec. 5 at 9PM, Discovery will show viewers the three men and their bikes. Then the audience will be able to vote for their favorite. The winner will be revealed live on Tues., Dec. 6 at 9PM in a broadcast from Las Vegas.

James rose to prominence after a 2000 Discovery documentary titled 'Motorcycle Mania.' The Discovery special is widely credited as being the start of TV's motorcycle craze. Following the success of the documentary, Discovery tapped James to host 'Monster Garage.' He then went on to appear on various shows including 'Celebrity Apprentice' and 'Jesse James is a Dead Man.' He was last seen with Kat Von D on the last season of 'LA Ink.'

'American Chopper'
debuted in 2003 and aired for four years on Discovery. The show moved to TLC and became 'American Chopper: Junior vs. Senior,' but then returned to sister network Discovery.

Paul Jr. is the best bike builder. He has more imagination and talent than Senior or Jesse put together. Paul Jr. could do a show on his own with out the competation with his father. Senior is a real ass and will not admit he is wrong on anything, It is his way or the high way. I hope Paul Jr. wins this new bike off and Paul Senior comes in last because he did not build a bike but something that belongs in a video game.

Jesse is a low life embarrassment to the human race. How he got on TV is a mystery to me. He is not a role model to anyone that lives outside of a low income trailer park. By By jesse.

Mr J.J. Bullock,
I think you should take your tatoo mentality and go back to school cause you don't have a chance in shiola with this bike build off , cause sonny boy your no Tuttel and you'll find out just how out of your league you really are when jr gets done with you. You messed up your marriage just like your gonna mess up this build you pompus

I watched Jessie James when he had his show because it was the only bike show on tv.then. Jessie
has screwed up everything that he has been involved in since then. Discovery should have used one of the
guys from the biker build off showes. They are all better bike builders than Jessie James. I will not watch the new show.

It will be interesting to see how the bikes turn out....

The trend is fattest back tier...
Biggest front tier,
Lowest seat,
Longest gas tank,
One of a kind handle bars
Hydraulic suspensions
Wildest paint scheme
And coolest custom sheet metal work...

It will be a great show... who knows, we might even see a fight break out...

I think James would be an underdog here though... He only fights women…

Paul Junior has all of the talent. His dad builds middle of the road already done that bikes. Jessee James is one of the only true craftsmen left in the world, but leans too much toward West Coast bikes instead of something everyone across the country can relate to.
