"Jobs That Bite!" is a reality series on Nat Geo Wild hosted by Jeremy Brandt.

Does your job leave you unsatisfied? Are you bored of writing reviews, crunching numbers and those annoying TPS reports? Well you're not alone! According to a Gallup survey, 70 percent of workers are not engaged in their jobs. Luckily, Nat Geo Wild found a small sliver of Americans who actually love their jobs — and they're even "Jobs That Bite!"

Breaking out of the daily grind as host, Jeremy Brandt travels across the country, trying his hand at a wide array of fascinating, dirty and dangerous animal jobs: everything from camel milker and shark feeder, to beehive remover and dog chauffeur. Not only will he get up close and personal with massive beasts, pretentious pets and impossibly slippery critters, but he'll also meet some amazingly adept professionals that have found job satisfaction outside of the office.

Willing to try just about anything, Jeremy dares to perform a dental examine on a 400-pound lion, swim with 9-foot-long hungry tiger sharks and even express a dog's anal glands. The jobs can be messy and dangerous, but they can also be very rewarding.



He gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform a neonatal exam on a newly born giraffe, measuring and weighing the baby before releasing her to her mother. But not all jobs are as fragile — Jeremy has his work cut out when he herds goats! On the front lines, he almost gets his kneecaps broken trying to catch one. Packed with adventure and humor, Jeremy will take the bite to get the job done.

He travels the country in search of "Jobs That Bite!" and finds himself in California, Texas, Florida, Maine, Vermont, Oregon and Washington, where he quickly learns the ropes from the unsung folks whose hard work makes life better for animals. He's your quintessential guys' guy — rugged and affable, willing to try anything once, and just as willing to laugh at himself. We'll see him smile through the outrageous chore of helping a young male camel mate with an older female, and settle in for a snuggle with a troop of pampered pooches. Armed with an easy charisma and just enough stubbornness to never go down without a fight, Jeremy is ready to roll his sleeves up and get his wild on. Whether it's riding a horse or wrangling a massive boa, he's game for it all.
