If it's going to be the last meal of your life, it better be good.

A new special airing on the Discovery Channel goes behind the scenes of death row and what goes into their last meal — and has an exclusive sneak peek!

Brian Price, an inmate at the Huntsville, Texas, prison is also the death row chef and in Death Row: The Last 24 Hours he reveals what some of America's most infamous inmates ate before they were executed.

"Serial killer Ted Bundy requested steak, eggs, hashbrowns and coffee," Brian said.

"John Wayne Gacy ordered a dozen deep fried shrimp, a bucket of fried chicken and a pound of strawberries."

Brian said Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh made an odd order: two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream.

"I did everything I could to send it over there the way they wanted it," he said. "Of course, won't take it long before all it is is stomach contents on an autopsy report."

And although Texas ended the tradition of the last meal request in 2011, Brian remembers well what the most popular meal was.

"The most requested last meal would be cheeseburger and french fries believe it or not," Brian said.

"Sort of comfort food, I guess."

Death Row: The Last 24 Hours premieres on the Discovery Channel on Monday, April 30 at 10 p.m. EST.
