In the Magnum P.I. episode “Winner Takes All,”Clear Skies bail bonds owner Travis Leet calls in the top private investigators and bounty hunters on Oahu to his office including Magnum (Jay Hernandez), Luther Gillis (guest star Ken Jeong) and Shane Powell (NASCAR driver Ryan Blaney).
Travis Leet needs them to track down Skip Jenkins (Jake Matthews), a man accused of murder who skipped bail. Leet has 24 hours to bring Jenkins in. If he doesn’t, he’s on the hook for Jenkins’ entire bail — $1.4 million. When Leet announces that the bounty is $200,000, he explains that the money goes to the one and only person who brings him in — aka “winner takes all.”
