Cannibalism on Dutch TV: Eating Human Flesh
A shot from the Dutch TV show Proefkonijnen in which the two hosts ate each other's flesh.
Anytime you think American reality TV has stooped so low it can't go any lower, look across the Atlantic for inspiration. Two Dutch TV presenters, Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno, will eat each other's flesh on their show.
According to The Daily Mail, "the duo underwent surgery to have a small piece of muscle removed. They then fried each other's meat and ate it in front of a studio audience." Storm lost a chunk of his bum, while Zeno parted with flesh from his abdomen.

The show, called Proefkonijnen (it means "guinea pigs"), airs on BNN and features the wo men answering silly questions and undertaking odd challenges.
Think we can convince Howie Mandel and Guy Fieri to do that?
