Outraged television viewers aired their grievances on social media last night, complaining that a man didn’t get eaten by a giant snake.
Discovery called its special with adventurer Paul Rosolie “Eaten Alive” and its programming description told viewers that a man “enters the belly of an anaconda.” That’s what some viewers appeared to want, EW.com’s Inside TV reports. Instead, the anaconda, after coiling itself around Rosolie, started to eat his helmet.
“That’s when Rosolie had to call in his team to rescue him, saying his arm was being crushed,” EW reports, quoting Rosolie: “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.
The Twitter ridicule came quickly last night. This morning, even “Good Morning America” got in on the act, tweeting: “What was the bigger disappointment: Eaten Alive or Al Capone’s Vault?”
