This year’s Darwin Award goes to Paul Rosolie, who has agreed to wear a special protective suit and have an anaconda swallow him on TV.

Rosolie has agreed to let an anaconda swallow him, venturing where no one else has ventured before The Discovery Channel announced. Discovery also released a sneak peak of the episode, called “Eaten Alive.” The clip shows Rosolie and a group searching the jungle for an anaconda. The clip also shows Rosolie suiting up in the armor with an air tank attached. While getting in is easy, the question remains as to how the man will get out of the snake’s body.

The sneak peek shows a green anaconda, which can grow up to 30 feet long and weigh up to 550 pounds, according to National Geographic. The green anaconda is the world largest snake. The special is set to show Discovery on Dec. 7.
