Dutch TV Presenters In Cannibal Stunt


Two Dutch presenters are expected to provoke outrage with a macabre television stunt in which they eat each other's flesh in front of a studio audience.

Dennis Storm and Valerio Zeno both underwent surgery to have a small piece of muscle tissue removed for the grim stunt.
Mr Zeno had flesh taken from his abdomen, while Mr Storm is understood to have had buttock muscle tissue cut out.
A chef then fried the flesh and the pair ate it in front of the audience.
The stunt features on the BNN television show Proefkonijnen - which means Guinea Pigs.
The pair try to answer "stupid questions" by taking on unusual challenges.
The footage does not actually show the moment they eat the flesh but it does show it being cooked.
They have so far refused to say how the snack, which they ate without any salt or pepper, actually tasted but admitted there was "nothing really that special" about it.
Mr Storm said he did not regret his decision but added: "It is weird to look into the eyes of a friend when you are chewing on his belly."
They insisted their stunt was entirely legal in The Netherlands as both had entered into the pact voluntarily.
A lawyer advised the show's producers that while cannibalism is not itself against the law, the presenters or the surgeon who operated on them could face legal difficulties.
Mr Storm and Mr Zeno said there was no health risk involved as long as their flesh was properly cooked.
