American Hoggers returns tonight with its Season 4 premiere and Jerry Campbell has himself a new recruit in the fabulous form of bartender Katie Ball. Here’s Katie’s brief bio via A&E:
As a pretty twentysomething bartender at the local country club, native Texan Katie Ball is used to flirting with and pulling big dollars out of old men who want to listen to themselves talk all night. So it doesn’t take much for Jerry Campbell to convince the country girl to join his hog hunting team.
Katie hasn’t wrangled hogs before, but she’s not afraid of the challenge. Her spitfire attitude is matched by her physical ability. In high school she was a state powerlifter, squatting 350 pounds. She later went on to participate in fitness modeling competitions, but now thinks hogging could be her next career move. Jerry’s master plan is to mold her into a better, faster, and stronger version of his daughter Krystal, but his biggest challenge might be keeping his focus on hogging instead of Katie.
Pretty young gal in fitness modeling competitions that can squat 350 – Jerry knows how to pick ‘em y’all! In a recent piece via MyPlainview, they had some additional bio information about the 24-year-old Texan, including her participation as a varsity cheerleader and that she was an all-around excellent student while at Plainview High School.
In a preview clip, Jerry says of Katie, “If she’s strong enough to work at a bar in Central Texas; she’s strong enough to become a hog hunter.”
You can keep up with Katie via her Facebook fan page here and don’t forget to tune into tonight’s double-episode premiere beginning at 10/9c on A&E.
Is that a little grin under those whiskers Jerry?
