On the Discovery Channel, we witnessed a simple man with a dream.
Paul Rosalie, an aggressively handsome man with a burning desire to feed himself to a serpent, ventured deep into a mysterious part of the Amazon to try and find a very large snake he said he had met years before. Not content with the path Steve Irwin and other naturalists and documentarians have carved, Rosolie wanted to be the first human to be eaten by a snake and document the process.
Rosolie's dream is a 2014 take on the moon landing, with more anacondas and camouflage, but no moon.
The result was a 2-hour special called Eaten Alive which kicked off Discover's "Mega Week," an extravaganza dedicated to the massive creatures of the world.
