When Stephen Baldwin caught a case of the botflies on the NBC celeb-reality show “I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here,” he decided to, well, get out of there and quit. He was bitten while shooting the program in Costa Rica by more than 125 botflies, some of which successfully planted eggs under his skin.
He described the fly implants on blogtalkradio:
Within about 72 hours they were these half dollar-sized lumps under my skin that were probably about an inch thick and were situations where they just weren’t a reaction that were the same as the others – 123 so to speak. I did get to take some time with the medic who explained that in his opinion at that point he didn’t think that it was the ‘implantation of insect larvae into my flesh’, but that – oh gosh – that’s what it could be… So they tested these things and sure enough, Stevie B was ‘pregnant.’
Now we are even more grossed out by the one who might be the grossest Baldwin brother, unless we are forgetting a lesser Baldwin or two.
Michael at Ecorazzi summed it up perfectly:
And therein lies perhaps the most interesting thing you’ve ever read about Stephen Baldwin.
