Last month, we brought you news that a new Discovery show promised to document a man being ‘eaten alive’ by an anaconda on TV.

About the show, called Eaten Alive, Discovery’s website stated: “Naturalist and wildlife filmmaker Paul Rosolie enters the belly of an anaconda in a custom-built snake-proof suit.”

On Sunday night, the show aired, 4.1 million people watched, and ROSOLIE WAS NOT EATEN ALIVE by an anaconda. Bullsh*t.

Entertainment Weekly describes what happened during the hugely underwhelming episode,

“What viewers eventually saw during the two-hour special was a 20-plus-foot anaconda attack Rosolie, coil around him, then start to eat his helmet. That’s when Rosolie had to call in his team to rescue him, saying his arm was being crushed. ‘I started to feel the blood drain out of my hand and I felt the bone flex, and when I got to the point where I felt like it was going to snap I had to tap out, he said.”

Weak. Twitter feels our disappointment.
