Eli Roth

I Wear Pinky-Sized Condoms

After Octopus Mishap

Forget Magnums ... Eli Roth's strapping up with extra small rubbers these days ... thanks to a nasty bite from an OCTOPUS in Hawaii.

Eli tells TMZ, he recently overcame his fear of the ocean while on vacation in the Aloha State -- following a terrifying sea urchin attack in 2010 -- and decided to test the waters with a sea scooter expedition.

But curiosity got the best of him when he reached out to touch a baby octopus ... and the 8-legged bastard bit him on the pinky.

Eli -- the man behind the new Netflix series "Hemlock Grove" -- says his finger bled profusely for hours after the bite, and now he's gotta keep the wound covered with little pinky condoms until it heals.

And the best part, if he ever runs out ... he can always ask Justin Bieber for spares.

He is such a dumb a$$! Bet he stuck his hand in the coral where the little guy was hanging out... He is lucky he still has a finger, they open clams with their beaks. I've been scuba diving for over 24 years, and there is always one who has got to be an a$$.

Are these really condoms or just bandages? Can't the hospital afford bandages? Can't a staff member wrap a bandage? They are actually sticking his wound in rubber condoms?


I think that is disgusting. I would walk right out of there. They must have a lot of perverts on staff.


If you are dumb enough to touch an octopus, maybe you are dumb enough to wear condoms on your injuries. I think octopi respond to stimulae, such as touch. When a fish bumps into them, they just open their mouth and try to eat it.

The Bear Kew was eaten by a dog in Cabin Fever, attacked by a sea urchin and bitten by an octopus. Nothing new in the land of the awesome. He's just indestructible.
