Kings of Pain Full Episode Guide

  • This special episode spotlights some of the most compelling and dangerous moments from Adam and Caveman Rob's journey to expand upon Justin Schmidt's original pain index.

  • Adam and Caveman Rob wrap up the season in Indonesia, with the two worst bites to date, from a Giant Asian Centipede and a 16-foot Reticulated Python. Vomiting, stitches, and rivers of blood make them ask if they are able to continue their research.

  • The guys encounter two legendary creatures of the Amazon: the Bullet Ant and the Piranha. After hours of pain from the Bullet Ant, Caveman Rob dips his blood covered arm in a tank of Piranhas. What follows is a bloody and painful mess.

  • Adam and Caveman Rob journey to the Asian island of Bali and face off with the Fire Urchin, and the Rove Beetle, which surpasses the record for the highest pain score to date.

  • An underwater hunt for the possibly deadly scorpionfish in the Baja, ocean leads to a toxic sting that puts Adam in danger and matches the highest pain score to date, while the Toe biter results in the weirdest pain profile yet.

  • In Africa, Adam and Caveman Rob search for the Nile Monitor Lizard and the Velvet Ant but are attacked by an even deadlier animal and are lucky to escape with their lives. The guys experience a brutal bite that makes them question their mission.

  • In Mexico, Adam and Caveman Rob tango with 2 torturous animals including one that topped Justin Schmidt's pain scale.

  • Adam and Caveman Rob head to South Africa to face the giant Bark Scorpion, the tiny Uroplectes Scorpion, and the highly venomous Lion Fish. Big pain comes in small packages, and the effects of marine animals' toxins are truly the next level of pain.
