Remember when you were a kid and your parents MADE you eat everything they cooked? Well, some people are super picky eaters and are physically repulsed by lots of foods. They agreed to let us push their boundaries and have them try to eat adventurously for a week. These are the results:
Before we dive in, we urge you to take a look at this GIF of Mike's reaction to eating a mussel. It perfectly encompasses everyone's reactions to everything in this video:
All the picky eaters had a strong dislike for sushi. Fair enough, raw fish can freak people out.
But, it became apparent that they also have an aversion to anything and everything with a texture.
Many vegetables and fruits got the boot:
Seriously, NOTHING IS SACRED TO THESE PEOPLE.
They wanted to make sure we understood that there is a difference between being a "picky eater" and being stuck up:
