Rocker Ted Nugent has been rushed to hospital after a chainsaw cut through his leg on the set of his reality show.

The rocker and outdoors enthusiast, who is the star of the VH1 series, SURVIVING NUGENT: THE TED COMMANDMENTS, required 40 stitches to close the gash in his leg on Sunday (11JAN04).

But Nugent isn't missing any time on the series, which is taping until Sunday (18JAN04) and is scheduled to air in April (04). The 55-year-old rocker is now wearing a brace on his leg.

The original installment of Surviving Nugent aired in October (03), showing contestants being shot with paintballs, sleeping in a barn, constructing their own outhouse and skinning a Russian boar - all in an effort to win $25,000 (GBP13,888) and prizes.
