Wow, all because the guy wanted to win a freakin' snake. Wouldn't it have been easier just to buy the thing. Shellfish allergy, really?

To add to the squeamish factor...

What if the bugs were trying to chew their way out of the stomach filled with acid in order to survive? And were successful.

Eww.

As long as the roaches were kosher I don't see a problem.

It's like when you were kids in elementary/grammar school, there was always a kid that would eat paste, dirt, bugs and worms. This guy never got past that stage of being a kid-this one screams out "attention whore" and it ended up being his demise. WTF did he end up proving? Not a thing!
