[show]Before Jackass, there was a skateboarding magazine called Big Brother. Jackass director, Jeff Tremaine was a former editor and most of the guys who would soon be in Jackass were featured in the magazine such as Bam Margera, Chris Pontious, Steve-O, and Wee Man. One day, Johnny Knoxville came to Big Brother to do an article on self-defense equipment which Tremaine agreed to publish and also told Johnny to film it for Big Brother's video line. After the video went out, television producers saw the video and gave Knoxville his own show. Jeff Tremaine helped get the show with the help of his close friend Spike Jonze who is a film and televison producer.
- Most of the episodes from the first season are clips taken from Big Brother magazine's video line and Bam Margera's CKY videos.
- Preston Lacy is the only member of Jackass who auditioned for the show while everyone else got in through Big Brother or CKY. Preston Lazy auditioned by eating four bananas with the peels on.
