Possibly the most disgusting thing ever?

Fear Factor used to be one of my favorite shows. In the one philosophy class I took a few years ago, the professor described FF as “hands down, the best show ever”, adding that no other show did a better job in illustrating thousands of years of outright decay brought upon human society by money. A couple of shows have come close to FF in their ability to highlight the dark side of human beings (watching husbands abandon their wives in times of danger on ‘Scare Tactics’, or finding out that we are, in general, not really that much smarter than a fifth grader) but no show will ever match the human filth that’s aired on Fear Factor.

Now having said that…

All of the characters you see on Fear Factor are there for one reason, and one reason only. The dough. The bread. The jack, if you will. I’ve grown accustomed to the desperation that’s crammed into the show, and which makes it what it is. After a certain point, the shock of someone drinking a blended rat simply turns into downright pity.

Then you run into a video the one below, on youtube, where an attractive girl, with no financial incentive whatsoever, eats a praying mantis. Granted, she clearly lost a bet or something and had to do it, but she seemed like she was in familiar territory when she snapped that little creature’s neck in half and chewed it with little sign of revulsion.

It’s fun to think to yourself… how much money would it take for me to eat something like that?
