Hi! My name is Jukka Hildén, and I'm an internationally-recognized stunt performer.

I now have over 4.6 million YouTube subscribers as the ringleader of the team "The Dudesons," who came to America from Finland to share our talents of taking bizarre and awe-inspiring risks with a wider audience. As a team, we look to inspire viewers by pushing the boundaries, getting others out of their comfort zone, and encouraging them to face their biggest fears and slay their personal dragons in order to breakthrough their self-imposed barriers to show them that anything is possible.

For my latest project, I'm excited to be the host/creator of ULTIMATE EXPEDITION, the 10-episode series that recently debuted on YouTube Red.

Last year alone, 4 climbers died trying to climb to the nearly 20,000 ft peak of Mount Tocllaraju in Peru, and now, in the hit new YouTube RED series, 8 celebrities with no previous climbing experience including Chuck Liddell (UFC champion), Steve-O (Comedian) & Gus Kenworthy (Olympic silver-medalist) attempt to summit the mountain.

Mount Tocllaraju is not the only mountain the cast is trying to conquer. Each climber has a personal challenge they are hoping to summit. Some are chasing dreams, some are redefining themselves, and some are looking for a spiritual awakening. They will experience elation, anger, and even a bit of comedy, on their way to finding joy as they work to overcome personal obstacles. This expedition is a rare opportunity to isolate themselves from the daily stress of the modern world - and prove that nothing is impossible. The full cast includes myself, Gus Kenworthy, Chuck Liddell, Steve-O, SSSniperwolf, Furious Pete, Jusreign, Nikki Baker, and Chachi Gonzalez.

It all began when The Dudesons and I founded The Rabbit Films Story in 2001 in order to present our stunts and pranks in television. Known for our original series and unique takes on popular American television (including "Saturday Night Live" & "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,") we focus on adventure, reality and primetime non-scripted formats. We are now bringing massively popular original show concepts stateside. 

In less than three years, my partners and I have tripled the size of Rabbit Films. Today, we are the top Finnish independent production company, dominating Finnish primetime television. Rabbit Films has won numerous awards at the Finnish Emmy Awards, Format Finlandia, European Pitch and Tubecon.

Now's your chance to ask me anything! Please write your questions in the comments section below and I'll answer the questions live on Wednesday, April 4th at 3pm ET.

    Hi Jukka. What are the top 3 non-touristy things to do in Finland in your opinion. Also enjoy seeing your vids from Bora Bora. Hopefully more to come.

    How long does it take you to create your content? Do you work alone, or have a team? If you have a team, how long did it take you to find the perfect people to make up your team?

      Its still a work in process... Figuring out a model that will last. I have a team, producer, editors and guys at the office to film and be in the videos. But running a company, selling shows, developing and living life on top of releasing daily videos can be tough... I couldnt keep up with it and now putting out 5videos a week and putting a lot of effort into what is a model that I can keep up with, have fun with and audience will enjoy!

      Hahaa :) I've gotten some bodily injuries, like broken my jaw and broken my back. Those were scary moments. I also got a burnout last year - Which is an example that you also need to rest and take time for yourself!


      When you live an active life, you are going to bite the dust few times. But be smart, and focused and you can learn from it and walk it off.. Thats how I look at my life.

      For youtube, I want to inspire people to live their life through my actions. Not just to preach and say things but show it in my videos - And to encourage them to believe in their dreams and themselves.


      Also to be kind, understanding and loving. This world has enough BS as it is, and internet is such an easy place to be a troll and complain. If we would all concentrate a little bit more to positivity it would change a lot. Believe in ourselves and in each others!

      I also want to fill my year with exciting people, events, travel and learn new skills. Push myself to learn new, conquer new and evolve as a person :)

      Find your passion. What you want to do, and what makes you feel good. Do that, and when you do it from your heart you become good at it. When you become good, you become succesfull. 


      Learn by doing. Dont sit on your ideas and wait for a better camera, or better timing. Now is the time, and have fun doing it. And don't be afraid to fail. All of us do!

      And believe in yourself. Rarely do success come without failing, or blood sweat and tears!

      I like to work with everyone whom is genuine and not afraid to push their limits! I would love to shoot something with the UFC champ Conor McCregor - Eventhough he talks a lot, he can and has always backed it up. And has an incredible work ethique, physical talent and social intelligence...

      As an influencer, I look up to my friend Casey Neistat. He has a voice that gets heard. He is also not afraid to say his opinnions and is an amazing storyteller and entertainer. I really wanted him for Ultimate Expedition, because he wouldve had so much wisdom to give to this world.


      He is also older, like me, and has seen life. So there is something to learn from his experience, the mistakes and success. And his work morale is through the roof. Work hard, go out the and start doing. That's how you will evolve, learn and eventually master what you are doing!

          He is genuine and hard working. Also not afraid to fail. He is an amazing guy who lives in the moment and concentrates on a conversation - he is also little bit crazy :)

      I come from a very poor family. My dad cant read or write, so I look up to underdogs. Self made succesfull business men that also want to inspire the world and bring something good to this planet. I read a lot of books from Creativity Inc. to Andre Agassi biography and they inspire me a lot. My idols in this world have been my own dad, Bruce Lee and Jarno from the Dudesons that started everything... As a businessman I very much like what Elon Musk is doing with Tesla, Space X and the train from NYC to LA.

      Being scared is a great feeling. It spikes up your senses. You give 110% - But I've always believed in pulling of all the stunts we've done. So I don't get hurt knowingly.

      I'm still scared. And I think everyone should push their limits and get scared every once in a while. And by that I mean, learn something new, learn a new skill, do something that is out of your comfort zone.


      Someone wise has said, if you are not scared of your dreams they are not big enough!

      One of my favourite stunts is climbing a 30 foot tree with Johnny Knoxville in an elf suit (Knoxville was the SantaClaus). And having my friends under the tree with a chainsaw... They cut the tree and we came crashing down. There was no skills involved, pure luck. Felt good to take a leap of faith and do something that wasnt in my hands.


      Other favourite stunt is walking into a bullring on stilts. The bull tackled me, looped around the ring to take more speed and came at me with spiky horns. I offered him my buttcheek and the bull headbutt me high in the air - And I dont know how, but I did a backflip over the bull and landed on my feet.

      But the best thing is when you get a ridiculous idea and go for it. The feeling of doing together with your great friends, trying something that is straight outta cartoons feels good.

      For being a stunt performer, I always knew that Im little crazy and very much into wanting to live my life to the fullest. And that drew me (and us, the dudesons) to creating something original and unique. If it was stunts, tv shows or anything we could do. We've come a long way since the year 1997 when the first film was released :)

      Thank you! Last show, Ultimate Expedition was the toughest and most meaningful that Ive done and hopefully set an example that get up, go out, respect the nature and push your limits to people. You might find happiness in the end of that rainbow :)
