    Exclamation Florida Man Dies Shortly After Winning Reptile Store’s Horrifying Bug-Eating Contest

    from Florida....shocking.....

    My guess is that he died from the sheer number of different diseases he inested.

    Florida Man Dies Shortly After Winning Reptile Store’s Horrifying Bug-Eating Contest
    Neetzan Zimmerman
    Authorities in Broward County, Florida, are investigating the death of a man who won a local reptile store's bug-eating contest, which required contestants to eat dozens of live insects and worms for the chance to take home a python.

    32-year-old Edward Archbold of West Palm Beach was declared the winner of Friday night's contest at the Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach, but he soon started to feel unwell. According to the Broward County sheriff's office, Archbold began to vomit the untold number of cockroaches he consumed before collapsing.

    He was rushed to Broward Health North hospital where doctors pronounced his death.

    Other contestants consumed a similar volume of insects but none had experienced similar medical problems. An official cause of death is pending.

    In his haste, he swallowed one (or a few) whole, alive.

    They ate their way out (of his digestive tract).

    Dumb bastard, always chew your Roaches.

    I hope I have a legit death and not something like this. I fear of my last milliseconds on earth being my brain saying 'I can't believe you were that stupid.'

    Being in the contest, bad.

    You know he was sitting at home for the last week, practicing for the contest, eating whatever the hell was crawling around in his trailer.
