Discovery channel is kicking it up big time! In it’s new show, Eaten Alive, naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie will be eaten by a giant anaconda snake. He will be wearing a custom-built snake-proof suit but still…that guy has balls!
Entertainment Weekly has this to say about the show…
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 bookMother of God: An Extraordinary Journey into the Uncharted Tributaries of the Western Amazon.
