Paul Teutul, Jr., author of “The Build,” returns
to Discovery Channel with new episodes
of American Chopper

Paul Teutul, Jr., star of the Discovery Channel series American Chopper, has returned to television. New episodes of American Chopper began airing Monday, May 28.  The first episode featured Teutul’s book The Build: Designing My Life of Choppers, Family and Faith (WaterBrook, Nov. 7, 2017) as a tension point between Teutul Jr, and his father Paul Teutul, Sr.

In The Build, Teutul shares behind-the-scenes stories from the show and his life with intimate details of going from a troubled teenager to a worldwide reality TV star and a self-educated custom motorcycle designer.

Viewers of the original series were privy to not only Teutul’s creative genius in designing and building custom bikes but his difficult relationship with his father, which culminated in 2009 with Senior firing Junior. Today, Teutul is a husband and father. In 2009, he started his own thriving business, Paul Jr. Designs, where he creates innovative motorcycle designs for corporate clients, film productions and nonprofits. Faith has become an instrumental part of Teutul’s life and a defining part of his journey toward health and healing.

American Choppers airs Monday nights at 10 ET on Discovery Channel.  To watch online, visit
