jesse james Jesse James returns to Discovery for live 'American Chopper' showdownWhen was the last time you read a story about Jesse James that wasn’t about his love life? He famously cheated on ex-wife Sandra Bullock, got a divorce and started an on-again-off-again romance with tattoo artist Kat Von D.

Well, there is actually news about the former “Monster Garage” star that doesn’t involve a lady friend. According to EW, James will be returning to the Discovery Channel for a live head to head battle with the Teutuls on “American Chopper.”

This will be the first time in five years that James has appeared on Discovery. James will appear on the show December 5th and 6th at 9pm. This is also the first time “American Chopper” will be live.

The first night we’ll get to see Paul Teutul, Senior and Paul Teutul Jr and James building their bikes at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Viewers will get to vote on their favorites and the winner will be revealed during the live show on the 6th. Jesse James’ documentary Motorcycle Mania helped launch the cable reality motorcycle craze back in 2000.
