8 great bug-eating videos from around the world

There's nothing better than having new and exciting experiences while traveling the globe. But, are you gutsy enough to try eating delectable delicacies such as grasshoppers, cockroaches, and gigantic worms?

Me neither ... but these eight people are.

Giant Chinese Cockroach - Thailand

This cockroach is so big, I'm surprised they didn't sell it by the pound.



Fresh Weevil Grubs - Amazon Jungle

Bear Grylls stars in this "Man vs Fresh Weevil Grub" clip. Oops, sorry for the squishy bits. Hope you didn't get squirted.





Large Crunchy Cockroaches - Thailand

These guys went looking for the "Bug Carts" in Bangkok. I'm not sure that'd be my first stop.





Scorpions - China

"Kinda like eating an eyebrow," he says. This guy eats four of them!





Giant Mangrove Worms - Philippines

Giant worms pulled from trees... and I mean GIANT. Could you eat the whole thing?





Deep Fried Tarantula - Cambodia

"Eat your heart out." Looks kinda chewy if you ask me.





Giant Waterbug - Thailand

This poor guy had no idea what he was in for. Is he crying? There's no crying in bug-eating!





Grasshoppers - Thailand


Thai Lady: "It's crunchy."
Director: "Like potato chips."
Thai Lady: "Yeah. Kind of."
Director: "$15 bucks and you got a whole meal here."

Enough said.
