Glutton for Punishment

Episode Description

Nettle Eating

Stinging nettles are the British equivalent of poison ivey. Just brush up against them and they cause a painful rash. When cooked, nettles quickly lose their sting and taste like spinach. But in the Nettle Eating Competition in Dorset, England, the nettles are eaten raw – with natural accompaniments such as caterpillars, slugs and other nettle loving bugs. Bob must train himself to endure intense pain while attempting to swallow 40 liniar feet of raw nettles. Has Bob finally bitten off more than his (swollen) lips can chew?
