Millions have watched Jack Vale’s hilarious pranks on YouTube. Our new HLN reality series reveals that pranking has become a family business involving wife Sherry and their five kids.
Jack is a family man. And that’s forced his pranking obsession on the whole family. Any moment, an idea can pop up or a spontaneous shoot can happen -- which means an excursion to Costco might require a side trip to the mall to shoot a prank with a fart machine.
But Jack’s antics have made them so well known around their Manhattan Beach home that, in this series, they are forced to move temporarily to Las Vegas to regain anonymity. The show will follow the creation, planning, execution, editing, and posting of prank videos in Sin City. We also see the challenges of raising a family in the Internet age: How can Jack make them stop watching videos online, when they are videos of him?
Jack Vale - “The Big Kid,” constantly juggling the responsibilities of being the dad of five super busy kids and the demands of being a professional prankster. Whenever possible, he combines the two.
Sherry Vale - “The Firm Hand." If you saw her picking up the kids from school, you might think Sherry is a soccer mom, not realizing she is about to head out with one of Jack’s "pooters" to pull some fart pranks on the unsuspecting. But Sherry is the voice of reason, and always has the last word in the Vale house.
Jake - “The Sometimes Rebel." At 18, he’s the oldest kid, but he still lives under Sherry’s roof and she reminds him of that every time he wants to do something like get a tattoo or buy a motorcycle.
Chris - “The Tech Kid." Chris (15) is always finding a shortcut to get things done and has the tech savvy to pull almost anything off. In fact, he’s a bit of a tech genius.
Madysyn - "The Voice." She has an amazing singing voice and is pursuing a singing career (and has nearly a half million followers on her Facebook fan page). Her brothers are not those followers... they frequently shout "SHUT UP, MADY!"
Jaxon and Jazmyn - The 5- and 4-year-olds -- “The Hockey Player” and “The Diva” respectively. While Jaxon copies everything dad does, Jazmyn gives him attitude.
