Disgust Factor

With American television going ga-ga over reality TV, we really need a reality check about the sort of stunts being performed. Sample this: seen on ‘Fear Factor’, a big glass container with thousands of worms (called “nightcrawlers” by Americans), the participants had to stomp on these thousands of worms with their bare feet and reduce them to pulp, then they had to fill a glass with these blood n guts and drink it. Now, does squashing thousands of defenceless living organisms to drink them- prove that the participants are in some way brave? I find this really stupid and disgusting.

  1. You are very right, I also saw it a bit on AXN… it was indeed horrible.

  2. Totally agree with you. I was just watching that show yesterday and really doing that stuff for $50,000 is not even worth it. It doesn’t make you any braver…..That’s a real eye-opener that you have written! Nice post 🙂
