Hello BuzzFriends! We're Stephen, Fernando, Ryann, and Sam. As four gay men living in a big city, we don't spend a lot of time around wild animals — unless you count all those otters, bears, and cubs at Pride.
That's why BuzzFeed gave us a challenge: Do a photoshoot with the animals that terrify us most. If we survived, we'd have a cool story and a cute Instagram (all that matters, TBH). If we didn't...well, we were hoping it didn't come to that.
Anyway, watch the video to find out exactly what went down:
Stephen posed with a snake:
Sam posed with a bird:
Ryann posed with a lizard:
Fernando posed with a rat:
OUR FINAL THOUGHTS:
Stephen: I'm still kinda mad at the boys for lying about my snake being poisonous, but I couldn't have gotten through this without them.
Sam: Honestly, I'm proud that we all got through an experience that we were thoroughly dreading. Let's just say the score is Gays 4, Terrifying Animals 0.
Ryann: I still hate reptiles, but me and that lizard could definitely hang.
Fernando: We got some good Instagrams out of it, and that's all that matters.
