Here's a question you've never heard before: Did tonight's episode of Toddlers & Tiaras go too far? Ha! Obviously I was kidding, because clearly you've heard that question a time or two or eighty bazillion before. But this time, the question is truly legit. Because tonight we met young pageant pro Jordan (who, at 9 years old, isn't exactly what I'd call a toddler). Jordan is a cute, spunky redhead with a closet of sparkly runway wear -- but don't let that fool you. Jordan, who calls herself "a tomboy on the inside and a pageant girl on the outside," has a few decidedly un-ladylike quirks. Un-humanlike, even. Oh hell, I'm just gonna come out and say it: THE KID LIKES TO EAT WORMS.
"Delicious worms," as she calls them -- fresh from the dirt, still a-wigglin' and everything. And naturally, this being a reality show, Jordan indulges in her favorite snack right on camera, which is even more stomach-turning to witness than you might imagine. Sheesh, and that particular critter wasn't even up to par, according to Jordan:
“The one worm that I ate when I was fishing with my dad was better. That one had pee in it."
I guess that's what we get, people. We dared to judge Mama June for serving Honey Boo Boo plate after heaping plate of 'sketti, and now look! Hell, sketti's some high class eats compared to URINE-FILLED WORMS! Why why why why does her mom allow this to happen?!?! Although I will say this much for Jordan's mom -- the woman is clearly grossed out by her daughter's nasty habit. Not grossed out enough to decide against sharing the footage with America, but at least she's not dropping the worms into Jordan's mouth like a mama bird or something. (Oh god, please don't tell me I just gave TLC any ideas for future episodes!)
