Pirate Booty

Published
KG, Ringy and Derek ride through the swamps of Louisiana on a fan boat. Clearly, KG and Ringy will do whatever it takes to fulfill their dream of digging up pirate treasure.

Check your local listings.

KG and Ringy are visiting southern Louisiana in search of the lost treasure of the legendary French pirate Jean Lafitte, who helped Andrew Jackson fight the British in the battle of New Orleans in 1815. They score some sweet nectar Β— flat buttons, horse tack and musket balls Β— that give insight into Lafitte's life. But before they call it a day, the guys up the ante and make a wager on who can find the most unique artifact and the loser will have to kiss a wild alligator right on the mouth.
