Hurl! - Season 1
Premieres: Tuesday, July 15, 2008 at 9:00 p.m. EST
Hurl! is a new game show on G4 in which contestants speed-eat piles of food and are then subjected to grueling physical acts that are meant to get them to throw up. The object of the game is to make it through the eating and the physical challenge without puking. The contestants that are able to keep their food down will be subjected to another round. The contestant who can hold their food down the longest wins a prize.
In one episode, the contestants have to eat as much Cream of Spinach soup as they can and then they board a ride that will fling them through the air. Afterwards, anyone who didn’t chuck undigested soup all over the place will get to feast on tuna casserole. Then it’s back on the ride.
This show sounds totally disgusting. It’s as though they took one of those food-eating competitions then said, “Hey! How can we make this even more disgusting?” That said, I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t intrigued. It’s the same as those eating competitions. I say they’re totally gross but then I stumble across one on TV and sure enough, I can’t look away. Though something tells me, once the puke starts flying, I’m not going to have a problem looking away from this one.
