TED NUGENT Needs 40 Stitches After Chainsaw Accident

Ted Nugent was injured on the Texas set of his reality show when a chainsaw cut through his leg, according to the Associated Press.

The outspoken rocker and outdoors enthusiast, who is the star of the VH1 series, "Surviving Nugent: The Ted Commandments", required 40 stitches to close the gash in his leg on Sunday, Michelle Clark, a spokeswoman for the cable music channel, said Tuesday.

Nugent didn't miss any time on the series, which is taping through Sunday and is scheduled to air in April. The 55-year-old rocker is wearing a brace on his leg.

The original installment of "Surviving Nugent" aired as a two-hour special in October.

In that version, contestants were shot with paintballs, made to sleep in a barn, construct their own outhouse and skin a Russian boar — all in an effort to win $25,000 and prizes. Nugent challenged the contestants to live off the land in his rural compound near Jackson, about 70 miles west of Detroit.

In the latest version, which will air as a series, the Motor City Madman again will look to transform a group of unsuspecting city slickers into rough outdoorsmen.

To provide a fresh spin and new challenges, the location has been shifted from the woods of Michigan to Nugent's sprawling, multi-acred compound located just outside of Waco, Texas.

Nugent's family — son Rocco and wife Shemane along with ranch hands Big Jim and Big John — will figure prominently in the series.

The top prize this time around is $100,000.
