Shark Week is here and its first night kicked off with the Jackass cast taking on sharks in the most "Jackass" way possible. Steve-O & Chris Pontius set up newer cast member, Sean McInerney (aka Poopies), with a stunt where he was tasked with jumping over shark-infested waters on his wakeboard.

After failing to land the jump, McInerney was immediately bitten by a shark on his arm & hand. After some quick treatment he turned out alright, only suffering an injury that required a cast.

McInerney seemed upbeat in the aftermath saying “No, I don't blame the sharks at all. I mean, I was in their living room, and it was dinner time.” The morning after the Shark Week special, Jackass star Johnny Knoxville revealed the title of the upcoming film in the franchise, Jackass Forever. It's due out October 22.
