Jake and the Alpha Male have some history. In Week One, the Alpha Male stole a nuclear bomb in order to try to kill Jake. Prior to that, they had a number of petty scuffles, most of which, admittedly, were started by Jake.

Perhaps the worst of those was one in which Jake dumped black and purple dye on the Alpha Male to make it look like Jake had beaten him up. Jake spent a few days in a coma, but Alpha suffered a considerable public embarrassment which led to the loss of all his endorsement deals, which is why he ended up living in a low-rent neighborhood in Trenton, NJ.
