VIDEO: Kuwaiti TV host sets guest on fire live on air

A Kuwaiti comedy program showed the presenter dumping gas and lighting his guest on fire on live air two days ago.

Kuwait’s oldest broadcaster Jassem Rajab challenged his guest in the beginning of the show, by telling him he is the most person who screams on Instagram, asking him “Is your yelling masculine?”

After the guest was lit on fire, one of the employees from the program rapidly turned the fire down.

The video, posted on YouTube began with the cautionary words telling the viewer ‘to not attempt to do what’s seen on the video.’

Broadcaster also pointed out that "all precautions had been taken care of before we lit the guest on fire." He added that arrangements were made "so that he doesn’t feel anything, such as painting his body with a coat to protect him from the fire, and the use of an extinguisher.”

Rajab was criticized on social media, where many tweeters demanded the get punished for the scary stunt he pulled.
