BEHIND THE SCENES PRODUCTION PHOTOS
- On average an alligator will have 80 teeth, 40 on top and 40 on the bottom.
- McNasty, the alligator featured in the stunt is known for his extremely bad temperament.
- The teeth of an alligator are conical; used for grabbing and holding not for cutting.
Fear is not a factor for Executive Producer David Hurwitz who auditions an alligator while standing on his desk.
Contestants must make their way through the swamp before wrestling the alligator out of the sewer pipe.
