Simon Cowell is known for eating contestants alive as a competition show judge … and now his fellow America's Got Talent judges are taking that literally!

In an exclusive promo for the show, Cowell is seen tied up and wearing a mask, making him look very much like Hannibal Lector.

When team AGT removes the mask, the new judge asks, "Is all of this necessary? I don't actually bite."

Howie Mandell isn't so sure, replying, "That's not what we heard."



Judges Heidi Klum and Mel B are also skeptical, and become a little creeped out when Cowell sees a group of contestants on stage and gets a little bloodthirsty.
