Leon Ward is a bowling enthusiast who lives just outside of Philadelphia in Bristol, Pennsylvania. He spent many years of his life as a member of the United States Army and fought in both the Korean and Vietnam war. He gained an interest in bowling while hanging around his local alley as a child in Brooklyn, NY. At 83 years old he continues to bowl on a weekly basis and participates in two different senior citizen bowling leagues along with his wife Mildred.
Colin Furze is a plumber by day - but in his spare time he retreats to his garage and invents all manner of weird and wonderful contraptions, like the Jet Bike and World's Fastest Mobility Scooter. He also holds the Guinness World Record for the World's Fastest Pram, Longest Motorbike and biggest Bonfire!

Meet Jack English, a 93-year-old legend who lives in a cabin isolated deep in the Ventana Wilderness.
While on a hunting trip he learned that an old homestead in the Ventana Wilderness was being put up for auction by the estate of a childless heiress. He put a bid on the property and won. On the land he built a small cabin using materials from the land and milling trees by hand. When his wife passed away, Jack effectively left "society" and moved to the cabin full time.
