First off - I should probably apologize for the disgusting image above. I don't know if any of you watch Survivor, but last night's episode was pretty disgusting. I seriously had to fast forward through the last part of the challenge using my DVR because I really thought I was about to vomit. Let me set it up for you...
To win the challenge, the teams had to have the most amout of meat bitten off a pig in a certain amount of time. Each team had its own pig and basket and all castaways had their hands tied behind their backs. The entire challenge was shots of them gnawing at this huge pig on a spiggot and running to the basket and spitting it out. Grossest. Thing. Ever. Not only was it disgusting, but it turned out to be really dangerous too. 3/4th's of the losing team team had injuries to their mouth, jaw, gums, or teeth!
So after I got over the "grossness" of the challenge it got me to thinking. How far would you go? I'm sure you've gotten this question before. "Would you eat a burger for 1 million dollars?" I've always been a huge fan of reality competition shows. The Amazing Race, Survivor, and Big Brother are probably my favorites, but there's one thing that's always stopped me from applying to be on them - I could never eat meat in order to win money. You know how they always have challenges on those shows where they're forced to eat something really gross during competitions. I just couldn't do it...I go back and forth with the idea that I could do so much good in the world with that much money, but to me it's just dirty money. I would never judge anyone else who would - I just don't think I could do it!
Would you give up your Vegan ways (if you are a vegan or vegetarian....) to win money?
