In episode 5 of Paul Rodriguez Life, the star skater’s web series drops a video about him discussing competition at the 2012 Dew Tour street skate event in San Francisco. Entitled “The Other Half,” this fifth installment of the documentary series finds Paul Rodriguez contemplating his celebrity status and growing fan base.
