TLC has become the never ending freak show channel of cable television. Without a doubt, you can flip to the channel at any moment of the day and be greeting with something to make you say “What the F—!”
The centerpiece of that carnival of crazy is “My Strange Addiction”, a show that focuses on well, strange addictions. The show just wrapped up its third season, and in one season featured a man in love with his car, a woman addicted to eating tape, and man addicted to collecting roadkill, and a woman who loves to drink nail polish. But of course, they had to save the best (or worst) for last.
Presenting Carrie, the woman who drinks and bathes in her own urine!
Bean called the episode ”the worst thing ever”, Lisa dubbed it “gross, yet fascinating”, and Ralph could not even fathom why we were covering it.
Carrie “likes warm pee”, and not only bathes and uses a neti pot with her urine, she drinks it, rinses out her eyes, and brushes her teeth with it! She’s been doing it for over 4 years, and according to the episode, she’s consumed over 900 GALLONS in that time frame. Not bad enough? She saves it, and RUBS IT ON HER SKIN!
