A Texas TV reporter kept her cool even though a large spider was crawling on her arm during a live broadcast.

Shannon Murray of FOX-4 in Dallas posted a video on Wednesday morning — aptly titled “WHY DO BAD THINGS HAPPEN TO GOOD PEOPLE?” — that showed her speaking about contract negotiations between American Airlines and its workers.

In the video, a large spider about the size of a thumb, crawls across her left shoulder and arm.

Murray offers no reaction, keeping her cool.

“She didn't even flinch!!,” the video’s caption read.

Murray later said she felt something on her arm, but didn’t react.

Social media praised Murray for not freaking out over the spider.

On Thursday, Murray, who was called “the spider whisperer” by FOX-4, shared a video of herself swimming with sharks and stingrays.

We’ve seen people keep their cool on live TV despite heavy antics. For example, back in March, an expert kept a straight face while talking with BBC in a live interview, even though his children were running amuck behind him.

But then there are other reactions, like this FOX-5 reporter.
