Not gonna lie, I love the weekly YellowstoneStories from the Bunkhouse segment on the Yellowstone YouTube channel.
Jefferson White (Jimmy), Ian Bohen (Ryan), and Denim Richards (Colby) take you behind the scenes after each episode, breaking down what’s going on with our favorite Yellowstone characters, all from the point of view of a few cowboys from the bunkhouse.
And we’ve seen a ton of great moments from the bunkhouse crew themselves.
So with Season 5 already in production, this “Best of the Bunkhouse” highlight reel will have you begging for the upcoming premiere.
With some bunkhouse roping shenanigans, featuring Jamie’s (Wes Bentley) brief appearance in the bunkhouse, some buffalo riding, John Dutton’s (Kevin Costner) poker night, Teeter’s (Jen Landon) chef skills and more, it almost makes you want to take the brand yourself.
Jimmy Shares His Most Painful Moments On “Stories From The Bunkhouse”
Love me some “Stories from the Bunkhouse.”
In this episode, Jefferson White (Jimmy), Ian Bohen (Ryan), and Denim Richards (Colby) talk about Finn Little’s character, Carter, and how mature he is as an actor, give him a little advice on life in the bunkhouse, and debate whether or not Rip would actually give him the Yellowstone brand (meaning he belongs to the Yellowstone ranch forever, basically).
They also talk about whether or not Jimmy gets ragged on so much out of love, or if it’s really because they actually do find him annoying, as well as talking about the Texas cowboys who stopped by the ranch with performance horses that are the best in the world, all of which go for a cool $300,000 plus.
But, the best part is when Jefferson breaks down all the time’s that Jimmy has been broken down… and if you’ve watching the show from the very beginning, especially this season, you know that’s a lot.
Here’s his take on some of the most painful moments of his life on the show, both physically and emotionally:
“We start out with the taser. The first time we meet Jimmy, boom, taser. Fifteen minutes later, boom, brand. A little bit after that, Rip kicked me in the butt.
That’s about half way into the first episode of the show so far. I got bear sprayed. In between here and here, I fell off about 15 horses.”
Yeah, he got off to a really rocky start with Rip.
But, as we saw on this past episode, Jimmy is now dealing with a broken heart having to leave Mia, which Ian brings up during the rankings:
“This is my most favorite, because it will really give us some insight into you. The pain that only a man can know is a broken heart. Mia.”
Then, Jefferson lists off all the other heartbreaks he had prior to Mia:
“Don’t forget Avery leaving before Mia left. Don’t forget my grandfather being killed. So broken heart, of course, but you have a broken back, pelvis, arm, weenie.”
In addition to being punched in the face countless time throughout all the seasons, he had some stuff pretty low, like getting sprayed with bear spray, that I thought would’ve been a hell of a lot higher on the pain scale:
“So, punched in the face, that’s least, right? That’s like a one. Actually, okay, butt kick ties for number one.
While it was humiliating, while it has a sort of component of humiliation, not quite as painful.
Bear spray probably better than the taser, so we’ll go number two there. Taser maybe number three. Fall off, we’re gonna say that’s four through seven maybe.
