Before this behavior would have been edited out of the show, which is not live. Now, it’s being shown in the hopes that future contestants will do the same. It’s a very different franchise from when it started and because of that, the decision to add more security to every set has been made.

I got a little aquarium for him and a little heat lamp and did all the things. We named him Wilbur and I really fell in love with him. He would slide in-between my knuckles, he was just so sweet – but he was a gorgeous little thing. Anyway, he wouldn’t eat after two weeks so we put him back right where we found him. But, I overcame the fear of snakes and so did my son. We are going to get another one from captivity.”
