Paul Rosolie is going into the belly of the beast — literally. The wildlife specialist is set to be eaten alive by an anaconda on a new TV special for the Discovery Channel, airing Sunday, Dec. 7.
Details about the risky-sounding stunt are scarce. However, a page on Discovery's website states that Rosolie will be swallowed in a "custom-built snake-proof suit."
A trailer for the show was posted to YouTube on Wednesday, Nov. 5, but it sheds little light on what viewers will see. "We're heading into a unique ecosystem that no one's ever explored before," a voiceover says, as Rosolie and his team trek through the wilderness, hacking at plants and wading through murky water to find their scaly, slithering snake.
"We're gonna get me inside the snake," Rosolie narrates. "We're gonna make me as appealing as possible, so the snake just says, 'Well, I got this big thing here. I might as well get a free meal.'"
Rosolie further teased the special on Twitter, writing, "If u know me — I would never hurt a living thing. But you'll have to watch #EatenAlive to find out how it goes down!"
