There’s a lot you can make a person do for some cash. This is especially true when it comes to adrenaline junkies, who we imagine are the only types of people who would ever consider getting themselves cast for the series.

This woman, for example, eats a African cave-dwelling spider just to get herself to the next round, even though she’s clearly having a mental breakdown on the inside. With the check she could possibly receive at the end of the episode in mind, she bites into the spider and chows down, eventually proceeding despite how horrifying and awful the spiders look. Seriously. These spiders have claws.
