They are real all right and they are true roughnecks too. They like it down and dirty as I can attest. They also can bring it and are completely unabashed too.

I was told on the other forum (about Brandon Watson from the show) that Cheston McElhaney is an "actor", but I don't know? I know he's orignally from Iraan, TX. He has a website called gocheston.com . I looked it up, it's interesting! I also heard that "Peggy" from the show is actually an actress named Rene that's engaged to Brandon. Who knows? All I know is I LOVE BLACK GOLD!!!:)

That show is as fake as it gets. Most of those guys don't even work for Big Dog Drilling until their hired by the network and once their done filming they go do their own thing. Those guys are nothing but a disgrace to the industry that supports the life in Midland Texas.

Real as they get? The Wheelers are nothing but drunks and bar hopping losers who should grow up since they both have kids, Watson has some serious anger issues and should be in therapy and Cheston is more worried about his pretty boy looks than being a real rough neck

I know people that work for big dog drilling My friends say that they have never heard of any of these guys. ITS ALL FAKE Its a good show but all fiction all actors its easy to figure out If you notice Brandons truck is still at the drill site and that tahoe or yukon has cheston or wheelers driving it if you watch real close you can see proof that it is fake

They are NOT actors, they are real roughnecks. I live in Odessa, and have been around these guys for several years. Most roughnecks do not act as horribly as those guys do though. Brandon is actually a very self centered, egotistical Ahole. I witnessed him try to beat up an old man that accidentally bumped into him at a bar one night. So, all in all, they aren't actors, but they do put on a show for the series. I think they all need to grow up a bit. When the bottom falls out of the boom again, every single one of them will be looking for a new job because Big Dog is one of the first companies to start laying off.

Brandon is the only reason anyone watches the show ! He's a big bunch of testosterone, with a hot body, I think deep down he's a big teddy bear, he seems like he's never had anyone truly love him & take care of him, if he was my man I'd take care of him , in all ways especially sexually ! Who could or would say no to him....... Biggest stud on TV !!!!!!!

I've been in the oilfield for 15yrs, everything that happens on camera is fake. It's an entertaining show for people who don't know any better. If you look close in some of the camera shots you can see the actual rig crew in the background instructing the actors. Any "real oilfield" guys can vouch if anything happens (like Brandon blowing up or the massive safety violations) the oil company would be shut down immediately!! You can't pull that kind of BS on real oil rigs ANYWHERE. Even for mom and companies like big dog drilling.

I think the guys from the first season when they had 3 rigs (The viking, Longhorn and Big Dog)going were pretty much roughnecks. Check the difference in the seasons. They hired younger, better looking guys. Production definitely changed. I think this is what makes a lot people think they are now all actors.
