Scott Eastwood Eats A Snake For Dinner On ‘Running Wild With Bear Grylls’ [VIDEO]
If you’re going to appear on a TV show with Bear Grylls, one of the most important questions you should ask is, “What’s for dinner?” But it might not even be worth asking ahead of time, because the answer may very well be, “We won’t know until we find it.” Scott Eastwood (son of Clint, star of Pacific Rim: Uprising and The Fate of the Furious) recently found that out in no uncertain terms.
On last night’s Running Wild, the host and the actor were exploring caves in Bulgaria when they stumbled across a rat snake. Instead of just navigating around the critter, Grylls announced that this would be their dinner. Furthermore, Eastwood would have to stick it in his backpack … while keeping it alive! (They had to keep the meat fresh, after all.)
Grylls discovered that Eastwood is “no regular human being,” as he gutted the snake like it was no big deal. The verdict on the meat? “Pretty good.” Well, I’m certainly willing to try anything at least once, so you don’t have to convince me anymore! Dear Bulgarian government: please ship me four pounds of snake meat.
The full episode is on NBC’s website (the snake eating is around 29:00). And below, check out a clip in which Eastwood becomes acquainted with the concept of claustrophobia:
