Earlier this week, Phil DeFranco announced on Revision3‘s The Phillip DeFranco Show that he will be hosting part of this summer’s toothiest week of TV on Discovery Channel. Sharkzilla, a monstrous mechanical megalodon shark (say that ten times fast) will chomp one item each night of Shark Week based on fan’s votes on Facebook and Twitter. Each night, Phil will put the fate of two items in your hands and the item with the most votes will meet Sharkzilla’s 6-inch long steel teeth before the night’s through.
Tune in beginning Sunday, August 12 at 9pm ET/PT to see DeFranco kick off Shark Week and to cast your Chompdown vote! You can also get more of the infamous @PhillyD as he hosts Shark Week’s 25 Best Bites, a jaw-dropping look back at the greatest breaches, bites and brushes with the ocean’s apex predator, on Thursday, August 16 at 10pm ET/PT.
