LOCATION: San Pedro, CA
DESCRIPTION: Contestants are covered in slimy smelly hagfish and then have to transfer the disgusting fish between two plexi-boxes.
BEHIND THE SCENES PRODUCTION PHOTOS
- A single Hagfish can produce over a gallon of slime.
- As a defense mechanism Hagfish use their thick slime to choke the gills of predatory fish.
- Hagfish escape from their own slime by tying themselves in knots thus wrenching the slime from their bodies.
