“Back at home two years ago, I bought a bunch of exotic pets. The owner introduces himself and we just develop a connection. I went and bought more pets from him and recommended other people to him, so we just had a relationship. And we get on this show and I was like, have you ever done a prank?… He said what do you mean? I said bring out the big guys.”

Ortega and his associate then filled the room with a few snakes and then waited for The Great’ Volkanovski to enter and capture his reaction. When the champ walked in, at first he thought the snakes were fake, but then realized they were real. He then decided to carry a snake on his neck, at which point the snake began to strangle him. 

‘T-City’ started the prank wars when he slit the tires of cars from team Volkanovski and left them donkeys to ride home. Volkanovski then hit back when he filled a room full of clocks, as Ortega was never on time for the filming sessions. Hence, it is safe to say that ‘T-City’ has taken a clear and comfortable lead as the leader in the prank wars with the snakes today.
