BIG thanks to Pat Spain for making tonight’s series premiere so much fun! Seriously, how often can you watch the live television premiere w/ the host of the show himself??
And we’re live with @patrickspain on Twitter for the premiere of Beast Hunter: Man Ape of Sumatra. We’ll be re-capping all of the best tweets from tonight’s LIVE-tweet premiere of Beast Hunter!
@ You may have the best job in the world, top 3 for sure. What first peaked your interest in Cryptozoology?
@ Marine Bio and the giant squid. I love how mysterious the world still is!
@mslynnie5: just thought you should know you have my 3 boys mesmerized! They think you are the coolest 🙂
@: Aw, thanks so much! I’ve never been cool before! =)
@: that looks miserable! You poor thing, I hope it was worth it
@: It was absolutely worth it! I loved every second, even the rough parts!
@ how long did it take to hike into the crater? and are the canoes just there to use?
@: It was about a 2 day hike to the crater and then we had to wait for the canoes. We had arranged it a few weeks before
A hair color chart was introduced to help the Sumatrans communicate to Pat what color the man-ape known as “Orang Pendek” was:
@ That hair-color chart was a stroke of genius! I have to credit the amazing Barny, our poducer, with that idea!
@ says I secretly keep hoping someone points at the hot pink hair color on your chart!
@ replies I was secretly hoping the same thing.. =)
@: That hair-color chart was a stroke of genius! I have to credit the amazing Barny, our poducer, with that idea!
Question: mobGoose: do you still staying on Sumatra now?
Answer: : I haven’t been back to Sumatra since, but would love to.
@: In addition to channeling a tiger, they also cured me of a car-demon that’s been bothering me for years =)
@: These Shamans were incredible. It was so intense in there…lots of insence and the smell of blood…
@: These kids were such hams! They loved the camera and we had so much fun hanging out with them!
@: That Orang is named Pinkie, and here’s a clip of her getting to know me a little too well…
@: About 5 hours before this, I was rolling on the ground vomiting and convulsing.
@: Debbie was an incredible source of information. Such a great lead!
@: That market was overwhelming…smells and crowds and wild looking veggies
@: I had to stand completely still on that corner in NYC for 10 minutes
