If someone dared me to eat a bunch of worms for alot of money I would not do it. There are slimy and gross. They have alot dirt on them and poop alot. I want to thow up just thinking about it. I don't even care if it was a vast amount of money there would be no way a worm would be going into my mouth. I admit money would be nice but not for the wrong reasons. Some people get a kick out of seeing stuff like that. I don't see any point in eating things we are not suppose to eat. There is a reason why we are not suppose to eat bugs and worms. That is for the birds!

i would definitely not eat worms under any circumstances! yuk! i have seen people do it on certain shows though and it is just so disgusting. i know i would not be able to do it for any amount of money so i would not even attempt it. i could not even pick one up let alone eat it and swallow it. oh i am getting nauseous just thinking about it!

i hate this idea of eating worms or cockroaches for the sake of money. A few days back I am watching a reality show "IS JUNGLE MEIN....." broadcasted on Sony TV. Their I saw a celebrity eating worms and cockroaches stuffed / puffed in different flavours icecream. She ate almost 5 icecreams and earned 6 stars for his team. I totally wondered how this is possible. How some one can eat worms and cockroaches for money. She was looking so disturbed while eating those icecreams but she wanted to achieve the target for her team thats why she ate those ice creams stuffed with cockroaches and worms

NO. I will never eat bugs or worms for the sake of money. I love food and I love to eat but I don't like to eat the yucky ones as I don't like junk in my body. I know money isn't easy to earn but there are some other ways that we can earn money while not doing those kind of yucky things. I would rather join a hotdog eating contest than eat worms.

Well, depends on how much money you are talking about more than 10k I would consider eating them. I watched a TV show before where they will give you money if you could eat things like bugs or worms. Some people can do it, some people just can't. Except for poops, I will consider that.

Hello tuckersheri this is checkmail and never ever thought of having worms in my diet.But as you say and we watch on reality shows, some peoples do eat these worms for money or winning purpose.They might be habitual to the raw taste.But asking about me i would never have an worm for money or wining.Except if it is required for survival purpose, hope such situation never occurs or even come in future.

there depends whether i can handle that or not. i should make sure i won't throw up when i do that. i heard there are someone eat worms for the money also. maybe someone can take it as a single meal but others can't do. actually there are eatable worms on the market already .

I don't think I could, that is too gross, I could try but I don't think my body would allow me to do it without throwing up. That is just way to gross for me. It would have to be a whole lot of money before I would even consider trying it, and even then I really doubt that I could.

I would not eat worms. I remember dissecting them in school and finding that to be disgusting or using them as bait for fish. No thanks.

man if you actually taste a worm and not go by what people will tell you what they taste like you will know they dont taste bad... i can get bugs and worms all the time... they can actually save ur life if you eat them.. ( you just have to know what kinds can )

If somebody gives me a million dollar then also i cannot eat worms because i just hate them.This is the reason that i could not become a doctor and cannot tolerate them.If ever i try to do this then firstly i will start vomitting before eating them.When i see people eating i cannot see them eating and make different types of face expression seeing this my mother says why are u making faces as if every thing is going in your stomach.

Bugs and worms are for.......BIRDS???? Yum! If you are going to eat worms, put them in cookies. Yes, bugs and worms are yukky but you would live longer if you ate them instead of all that beef and pork. Worms and bugs are low fat, high protein. There are parts of the world where people do eat such things just to stay alive. A story I heard happened in America. A korean man had a problem with his neighbor's dog barking so he ate him. No evidence. No barking. Maybe we can just eat our problems away. Oh but America is way too overweight. Of course, if we would all eat like a BIRD, we would all be thin. Let's think of those health care costs!!!

Not me!! Interestingly enough, a couple weeks ago my husband and I went to the coast were we saw a chocolate shop that had chocolate covered worms, scorpions and something else (but I can't remember right now)in their window! We thought of getting some and putting them on our table at work and not telling anyone what they were. We walked away before the temptation got to be to much for us! hehehe
