Paul is known as one of the founding fathers of the 2nd Chance organization. After being wrongfully incarcerated for a crime he did not commit and after that, wrongfully serving 6 months in jail for child support he was unable to pay while incarcerated the first time. Paul is now on a mission to personally help others who are serving time for crimes they were wrongfully sentenced for as the host of his own show.
Born and raised in San Antonio, Texas, Paul Nutall was born to a single mother of nine children. From the very beginning, he knew what it was like to struggle. Despite the large hurdle life placed before him, Paul was able to stand on his own two feet, becoming a renowned gang-unit officer and three-time kickboxing world champion. He would even oversee former NBA champion Sean Elliott's karate training as his instructor. Although things were starting to look up, Paul's family would wrongfully disown him. The situation drove him to leave San Antonio in 1994.
Paul eventually moved to Michigan, earning two Master's degrees in Criminal Justice and Political Science. He used his degrees to become the Regional Youth specialist director at Wolverine Human Services, where he thrived for seventeen years. Despite how busy he had been, Paul continued training boxers, even sparring with Hall of Famer professional Chris Byrd. Their training sessions were instrumental to Byrd's victory over Evander Holyfield. Additionally, Paul has contributed as a sparring partner for Hasim Rahman, helping him earn the heavyweight championship in 2001.
Once again, things were starting to look up, but by 2007, Paul Nutall would fall victim to a wrongful conviction. Accused of a Nigerian scam, he would spend fourteen months in jail as he waited for his trial. When the time finally came, the judge dropped the charges upon reviewing his innocence. Although he was free, Paul had to be picked up again shortly for his inability to pay child support.After serving for six months, Paul would try to reconcile with his family. In the twenty-five years since he left, he discovered his mother had passed away in 2017. Life started to take a downhill turn as his father followed three months later. Tragedy continued to strike as Hurricane Harvey took his eldest twin daughters in Houston.
Most people would have given up and fallen into a deep depression, but Paul managed to march through the gloom of his trials and tribulations. He would later film a reality show where he would run into a girl he dated in the past. Paul would be forced to let her go and encounter more troubles, as she wrote a false report about him in an attempt to ruin his career and reputation. When confronted, it was revealed that she was jealous of another castmate that Paul would eventually marry.
Despite all the troubles he went through, Paul Nutall grew in faith, pushing forward to achieve his goals. Together with his wife, he would create the television program 2nd Chance Saves Lives and Forgotten Prisoners. Using their platforms, the couple has been helping people from Hollywood and all walks of life get the chance to redeem themselves. With the program gaining traction, Paul and his wife foresee their 2nd Chance generate spin-off shows. They also envision their franchise broadcasting to other countries to help other individuals. Regardless of what happens, Paul Nutall and his wife plan to use their platform to influence, motivate, and inspire the next generation.
