Howard welcomed the three Worst Penis Injury contestants to the studio and started by introducing Eric, who injured his penis after taking 21 shots on his 21st birthday: "The next thing I know, I'm waking up in the hospital."
The hospital had to insert a catheter while he recovered, but it got stuck--so they surgically removed it: "It burst my urethra. It just exploded it." The recovery was particularly scarring, as urine would flow out of the incision they made at the base of his penis: "It's like coming out of my scrotum!"
The second contestant, Dave, said he'd been accidentally shot by a friend just a month before his 15th birthday. The bullet passed through his right leg, his right testicle, the base of his penis, his left testicle and finally lodged--and still sits--in his left thigh. John, the third and final contestant, said his injury began with a pimple on his butt that really hurt. Three days later, his testicles had swollen to the size of oranges, so he went to the hospital: "The next thing I know I was waking up 28 days later...they removed my scrotum. They put my testicles up inside me."
The doctors also removed the shaft of his penis: "They left the head...it was gangrene. From a pimple...they had to relocate my rectum. It's where my balls used to be right now."
Needless to say, the vote was unanimous to give the $5,000 prize to John--Howard shook his head: "Let's hope in the future we have penis transplants."
