Probably the Nitro crew member with the most “stunning” physique, you will often find Mr. Passemante shirtless in order to impress. This former hanger of drywall, dubbed, Street Bike Tommy, first became famous, not for his success or skill in performing stunts or riding street bikes, but by one ill fated attempt to simply jump a street bike into a foam pit. Nearly earning himself a casket and a Darwin award, Tommy claims he was trying to do a front flip (he wasn’t), and in the process managed to fly completely over the the large expanse of cushioned foam, head first, into the rigid and unyielding ground. Little did he know at that time that this half-baked antic would be the best decision he ever made.
If there is anything that Tommy is skilled at besides getting maimed and nailing gypsum board onto walls, it is being hilarious and getting burned……by jokes of course. With a great aptitude to laugh at himself while causing others to bust a gut, Tommy brings that jolly and jovial atmosphere to the Nitro crew. A high degree of his comedic charm comes in the form of his unsuccessful stunts, such as the time on a episode of Nitro Circus when he set the World record for longest jump on a riding lawnmower which ended in the violent tumbling end-over-end of him and the mower. All because as Travis put it “Crab cakes and lawnmowers, that’s what Maryland does!”
When Tommys not putting his gorgeous self on the line for the World’s enjoyment, you might find him in a club or bar living the rock star lifestyle. If he makes it “rain” on you, or offers to buy the whole place drinks, please return his money or decline his offer and talk some sense into him. The road to fame can be quick, but the road back to construction can be even quicker. High five Tommy Passemante, for staying alive and your wreck less drive. We love you!
