EVENT - Round TWO of "America's Got Danger" - oh, Talent! July 21 2015

Tune in tonight 7pm CT for Dr Danger's Daredevil AllStars - #JudgeCuts with Michael Buble!

 


Danger’s Angels’ “Mighty Aphrodite” clips her wings and says goodbye to the team July 21 2015

                        Danger’s Angels announces the departure of Nikki McBurnett (Mighty Aphrodite) from the femme fatale daredevil team. The team of adrenaline junkies was created by Dr Danger of Dr Danger Stunts especially for “America’s Got Talent” Season 10, Extreme Season.

“When AGT called and said, “I love that you have a girl on your team”, well, I had to tell them, I can give you an entire TEAM of girls” said Gregory E. Carpenter, aka Dr Danger. The obvious choice to lead the team was Dr Danger’s long time daredevil partner, McBurnett. Together, they handpicked the remaining women whom they felt had the tenacity to stand toe to toe with McBurnett. In the final moments before the girls went in front of the AGT judges, the other four Danger’s Angels were pulled from the stunt, leaving only Mighty Aphrodite in the limo when it exploded.

The 42-year-old grandmother has offered no explanation for the split. She first gained recognition on the History Channel’s “American Daredevils” co created by and starring, Dr Danger. “It was her decision to leave. We’ll all miss her, and we wish her well. Nikki and I shared almost seven years of explosions, fiery crashes, and even a television series. I’m saddened by her departure. The Angels were looking forward to many thrill-packed adventures with her. They were excited about learning more from Mighty Aphrodite, because they considered her a role model. Sadly, that won’t be happening now.”

Rather than leave the Angels without a leader, Dr Danger is bringing them back under HIS wings. Danger’s Angels is now officially a part of Dr Danger Stunts Entertainment family.

And what does the good Dr have in mind for his next challenge? “We’re developing new, more spectacular stunts with Danger’s Angels, an outrageous group of young women who are as fearless as they are beautiful,” Dr Danger said. “They are an integral part of our future shows. Negotiations for a national tour are in the works. There’s also a pretty good chance we’ll be taking the show to South America and Europe. There is also interest in a television series.”

“The timing is right, and these gorgeous young women are ready to spread their Angel wings and fly to greater heights of fearlessness, razzle dazzle, and breathtaking entertainment guaranteed to keep their fans on the edge of their seats! Stay tuned!”

January 1st, 2015

Dr Danger Stunts has officially announced that the entertainer known as Dr Danger, Star and co-creator of History Channel’s “American Daredevils”, has severed his previous business arrangement with stunt collaborator Nikki McBurnett, aka Mighty Aphrodite.

Mighty Aphrodite, professionally trained by Dr Danger as an amazing daredevil femme fatale’, one of only a handful of female daredevils in the entire world, is after a seven year partnership, quotes Danger, “ready to take control of her own career and I support her decision to do so 169%.”

The seven years was said to be by ‘The Girl’ – as Danger often refers to McBurnett, “a whirl wind adventure of reckless abandoned.” McBurnett mentioned many hard miles on the “long ass reckless Danger Highway, crashing and burning our way across America. I’ll miss working with Danger, but he’s taught me well. It’s time to make my own mark in this industry.”

Dr Danger, star and co-producer of the History Channel’s series, “American Daredevils,” returns to Jackson County Speedway in Maquoketa, Iowa, August 30, 2014, just over a year after a spectacular stunt went wrong, nearly ending his life.

“It’s the cost of doing business. And my business is danger,” said the lanky, charismatic daredevil, also known as Gregory E. Carpenter. “This will be my first stunt since I broke my back and ankle here last July. The people in Iowa are the best, and I can’t think of a better place to get back in the saddle.”

Last year’s stunt, jumping an ambulance off a 12ft ramp into a 50ft silo standing on its end, was featured on “American Daredevils.”

As he starts his 25th anniversary “Too Tough To Die Tour” as a professional stuntman, daredevil, and master of fire stunts that never fail to bring the crowd to its feet, Dr Danger is eager to get back to doing what he does best – entertaining his legion of fans and giving them a spectacular show they will be talking about for months to come.

“It’s been a tough recuperation, but the hardest part has been not being able to entertain. This is what I do, and I can’t wait to do it again!” says Carpenter, who, over the years, has worked as a dishwasher, mechanic, tow truck driver, and other odd jobs between stunt seasons just to make ends meet. “I’ve put it all on the line to hear the applause of the people in the stands and send them home with a proper dose of good old-fashioned American entertainment.”

“I am an entertainer,” he says, “Now I get to show my fans in Iowa what this daredevil is really made of. You don’t quit. You follow your dreams, no matter where they may lead.” Carpenter’s dreams have led him around the United States and to several countries, where his television show remains a huge hit.

Dr Danger’s stunts have been featured at small and large venues and events across the country and abroad for 24 years. His work has been featured in National Geographic, MTV’s Nitro Circus, CBS Sunday Morning, Fuel TV and more. Each show is custom- made for the venue and features performances ranging from fire stunts to massive multi-car crashes.
