In 2014, Hugh Rowland, known as Polar Bear on the show, filed a lawsuit against the show due to a truck crash. Rowland claims he suffered serious injuries as a passenger when one of the show’s producers drove a pickup truck recklessly. The driver lost control of the truck, which caused him to veer off the road and crash into some trees.
