First, the All-You-Can-Eat event. I hate the whole idea. Shoving one's face into a plate of pie, hot dogs, corn dogs, baked beans, s'mores ... whatever the chowdown item of the day might be. It's disgusting. Why anyone would ever choose to put their gluttony on display like this is beyond me.
Likewise, any challenge that involves exotic eating is repulsive to me. For example, on Survivor. I've only seen it in passing, but a week or so ago I stared, transfixed, while two rather beautiful women gobbled whole, raw eels from the head down. I almost retched just watching them. And once on Fear Factor, contestants had to suck milk from the teats of a goat and spit it into a glass; whoever filled the glass first won the round. And wasn't there something with animal penises that I heard about? Of course, this has left the realm of "eating" and is dwelling in the land of "Just Plain Geee-ross".
I can't go on, I'm gagging on my breakfast.
