New Animal Planet fishing competition series seeks the “Top Hooker”

Before you get too shocked by the title of Animal Planet’s new series Top Hooker (or by the title of its first episode, which is called “The Oldest Profession”) — no, it’s not what you might be thinking. It’s actually a fishing show that marks the network’s return to the competition reality show genre, and pits the world’s top anglers against one another in a series of out-of-the-box fishing challenges for a chance to win $30,000 and a 2014 Chevy Silverado.

The diverse group of 10 opponents — from a harpoon-wielding Southern belle to a South African bodybuilder — take to America’s coastlines, lakes and waterways to engage in rather unorthodox challenges such as zip-line fishing, literally walking on water while reeling in catches and capturing fish using only their mouths.

In the premiere episode of Top Hooker, debuting June 2 at 10pm ET/PT, host Reno Collier welcomes the group of 10 to the competition. Right off the bat, the anglers literally must put their fish where their mouths are. The task is to jump into a tank of goldfish and move as many of them as possible into buckets within five minutesŠ using only their mouths. The angler to Œbucket the most fish is named team captain and gets to select teams for the next challenge, “Eagle Eye,” where the anglers must dive for fish like birds of prey. One by one, they¹re harnessed to a zip line and swoop into California¹s Corona Lake from up above and must net as many fish as possible toward the team total. The people on the team with the lowest total go into the elimination challenge, where they are sent out on a man-made floating bridge designed to make them wobble their ways to a catch. In the end, someone must be thrown back home, and every one else is left to fish on for a chance to be Top Hooker.

Top Hooker airs Sundays at 10pm ET/PT on Animal Planet beginning June 2.
