John Rascal from "Backyard Oil" stars in the Discovery Channel reality docu-series.

Originally from the mountains of West Virginia, this mountain man, his wife Peggy and his kids Trish and Adam moved to Kentucky bought a piece of land from Coomer and bet their last $7000 to drill a well ... and struck it big.

Having worked as a coal miner before the oil business, John Rascal quickly exchanged his helmet and flashlight for two dowsing rods and taught himself how to find oil. After striking three wells in a row on his property, Rascal's got one more shot to strike it rich.

To this day, Coomer wishes he'd never sold that doggone property to Rascal, but Rascal couldn't care less.
