- Can anything enter a black hole intact

I am having a debate with someone who appears knowledgeable about black holes from the language he is using but we have a disagreement about if matter can enter a black hole. He is trying to tell me the gravitational gradient near the event horizon is such that spaghetification occurs as you approach the event horizon. I am debating that the spaghetification effect occurs near the singularity itself, not the event horizon.

I came to this understanding from reading posts on this forum that spaghetification will occur outside the event horizon for small black hole but for larger black holes the gravitational gradient outside the event horizon is not so great and that it would be possible for a human to cross the event horizon intact and alive.

I may have misinterpreted what I have been reading on here but can anyone offer some advise as to which one of us was correct.

Thanks
