TLC's yummy sand eating addiction video

Posted on

TLC’s My Strange Addiction has previously chronicled people who are addicted to coffee enemas, butt injections, licking cats and drinking substances such as nail polish, urine and gasoline. There was even a woman who was addicted to eating her dead husband’s ashes (yikes).

But there’s something about the show’s next addiction — sand eating — that gets your attention. Maybe you can resist watching this exclusive clip. I couldn’t. What follows is almost a spoof of an addiction show. I’m not vouching for its authenticity, only for its crunchy entertainment value. This episode airs Wednesday, Feb. 20.

Also: I like that this 19-year-old addict won’t just eat any sand, but that she’s picky. Because, you know, she has certain dining standards.
