Nothing like some good old fashioned TV night with the kids. :)

 

It says the snake was not harmed. Well, we will have to wait and see what peta has to say about this.

Discovery has found its next extreme stunt: A man will be eaten by a giant anaconda snake.

In Eaten Alive, naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie will be consumed by an anaconda while in a custom-built snake-proof suit.

Discovery is keeping some of the details quiet for the moment, but has released these two promos, below. We’re told Rosolie covered himself in pig’s blood to make himself appetizing to the snake. Since the “snake-proof suit” has a cord on the top of it, Rosolie is presumably pulled back out the snake’s mouth after being “eaten.” We are also told the snake does not die.

In case you’re skeptical, a Discovery representative assures us that this announcement is not a hoax. Eaten Alive has been filmed and will air Sunday, Dec. 7. One of the major broadcast networks was quietly developing a very similar eaten-by-snake special last year titled Manaconda that never made it to air. Rosolie is the author of the book Mother of God: An Extraordinary Journey into the Uncharted Tributaries of the Western Amazon.

I'm wondering about the suit too. Snakes don't actually crush you. What they do is tighten up and wait until you breathe out, and then as soon as you breathe out they tighten up a little more so you can't breathe in again. Keeping this up for a few minutes usually does the trick.

 

Not sure how you could make a suit to protect from this.

This show would only be good if you could pick who you wanted to put in the suit. See the throat punch thread for potential nominees. I pick Hillary.
