The guys from Kings of Pain, a new History channel show that’s set to premiere on Tuesday, November 12th, might be certifiably crazy. They are going out of their way to experience the most painful bites on the planet by allowing creepy-crawly creatures to sink their teeth, talons, or stingers into their skin.
The new show, Kings of Pain, centers around wildlife biologist Adam Thorn and professional animal handler Rob “Caveman” Alleva as they endure bites so painful the average human being could easily be hospitalized for experiencing in the wild. We’ve got our hands on two GNARLY AF clips from this new series. Here these dudes take incredibly painful bites from a reticulated python (snakes) in Indonesia to Giant Asian Centipede, one of the most painful experiences on the planet (supposedly).
Here that wicked Giant Asian Centipeded bite (the snake bite clip is below). I wouldn’t wish this pain on my worst enemy:

And there’s that savage footage of the Reticulated Python bite filmed in Indonesia. You’d have to pay me a cool seven figures to even consider taking a bite like this:

Looking back at my childhood, it’s an absolute miracle that I didn’t spend more time in the hospital. My parents were those ‘go outside and play’ types and I’d venture out into the lakes and creeks around our house, catching snakes, turtles, and lizards.
In hindsight, I was probably way too young to ever realize that an alligator snapping turtle had the power to rip my adolescent hand off. And I definitely didn’t know the difference in patterns between a milk snake a coral snake but that didn’t stop me and my buddies from the neighborhood from wrassling up whatever moved.
I honestly cannot tell you what the most painful bite/sting I’ve ever experienced was because I’ve never gone out of my way to be on the business end of a bite. Aside from an extreme desire to have your own TV show, I can’t imagine what would drive someone to travel the world with the sole purpose of getting bit by animals in the most painful ways possible…But I like it. Here’s teh show’s trailer if you want some more:
As I said before, this show will premiere on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 on the History channel so be sure to adjust your TV set accordingly.
