Question Worst Case Scenario

Did anyone happen to catch tonights episode? It was on TBS. I was just flipping through the channels 2:20am and came across it and there was a man who had a fear of snakes after an encounter with one on a golf course. Anyway, they had him out looking for one and showed him how to catch it etc. I was suprised to see that they were VERY gentle with the snake and said they aren't something to fear!! Pretty cool to say the least..

he did amazingly well considering he went from cold sweat, to actually holding a rattlesnake in his own hands within two hours of first seeing it and getting talked through handling it. Very neat show.

I wish I would have seen episode. I love when things like that happen. I had a freind that was terrified of snakes. He would not even come into my house because he knew I kept snakes. After a couple of years and alot of talking I finally got him to hold one. He was amazed that they were not slimy and gross like he always thought. He has change so much that he has two of his own snakes know.

they had a hook and everything, and there was a 'professional' on hand. They pinned the head and they showed him how to 'properly' handle this snake. He had it by the head and supported the body.. Something tells me he may have had a little experience.

I used to watch the show...but they are always "recapping" and showing you what they just said over and over again. *LOL* I would watch it more but I think it could really be a half hour show, instead of a full hour.

Sorry just wanted to throw that in as my roomates and I have discussed it many times.
