‘Gator Boys’: Jimmy Sticks His Head In An Alligator’s Mouth
HUFFINGTON POST– Paul Bedard and Jimmy Riffle are the “Gator Boys” (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on Animal Planet). Working in the Florida Everglades, they’re in the business of trapping alligators who’ve taken a wrong turn into residential neighborhoods and ended up in swimming pools, backyards, garages and even bedrooms.
On Sunday night’s episode they decided to have a little fun and put on a show with some alligators at the Everglades Holiday park.
What did Jimmy say was “one of the most dangerous stunts you can do” with an alligator? Stick your head in its mouth. What did Jimmy then proceed to do? Stick his head in its mouth.
As volunteer Tre looked on nervously, Jimmy got ready to attempt the stunt, viewers learning from the voiceover that should even one drop of sweat fall from his brow into the gator’s mouth then it would be game over for the trapper.
In case anyone missed the implications of what would happen if the alligator closed its mouth with his head inside, he elaborated: “If you have an alligator snap on your head and do a death roll, it’s done. You will die.”
There were screams from the crowd when the alligator’s mouth snapped shut, but thankfully for all concerned Jimmy’s head was not in there at the time.
“Gator Boys” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on Animal Planet.
