Viva La Bam was an American reality television series that starred Bam Margera and his friends and family. The show was a spin-off from MTV's Jackass, in which Margera and most of the main cast had appeared. Each episode had a specific theme, mission, or challenge which was normally accomplished by performing pranks, skateboarding, and enlisting the help of friends, relations and experts. Although partly improvised, the show was supported by a greater degree of planning and organization.

History

Production

The cast included Ryan Dunn, Brandon DiCamillo, Raab Himself, Brandon Novak, Tim Glomb, and Rake Yohn. The show also starred Margera's parents Phil and April and his uncle Don Vito. The show was mostly filmed in and around West Chester, Pennsylvania and also visited Las Vegas, Atlantic City, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Mexico, Brazil, Japan and Europe. Bam and his friends also went to Miami in 2006 for "Viva La Spring Break".

The show debuted on October 26, 2003, on the MTV network in the United States and was later licensed around the world. The first episode featured Bam building a skatepark inside his house. Tony Hawk starred in this episode. Each of the five seasons consisted of eight half-hour episodes, with the fifth and final season finishing on August 14, 2005. Later that year, in December, Bam Margera addressed rumors of a sixth season on Last Call with Carson Daly. His comment was that there would be no sixth season, but there would be occasional MTV specials and he and Johnny Knoxville were planning things for possible Jackass stunts.
