Although it's a weird show I find it interesting to watch. I remember on one of the episodes there was a young lady who ate laundry detergent I'm surprised she didn't die, I feel like the show is fake because I've seen so many people eating things that are inedible like rocks, cigarette ashes, couch cushion and haven't died. some claim they've been doing it for decades how did they survive? I also realize that most of them when they visit the hospital the doctors never see anything wrong with them the doctors usually say "if you continue you can get cancer" The latest episode I've seen was the young woman who kept eating her dead boyfriends ashes? are you kidding me? I mean whats the deal with that show do you think its scripted?

Hi Judy, Nope, I have never seen this show and I don't like this kind of programm. Maybe people can do that, but I feel sorry for them most of the time, so I don't watch them.

I've only watch it a couple times and even then turned the channel. That is just gross and if it is true...it shouldn't be glorified on tv. And that is all it does. I mean, come on...who wants to know about someone eating laundry soap or ashes? Does nothing for anyone, helps no one, and I can't see that anyone gets any enjoyment out of that show. And it just gives kids more things to do to get attention and act stupid and all. "I saw it on TV"... so it must be the right thing to do!!! TLC should be ashamed of themselves for airing that disgusting show. True or fake
