His horrified doctor warned him that the worm could have killed him

23-year-old Nichola Kratka, a self-described ‘extreme eater’, deliberately ate a fish infested with tapeworms and filmed himself doing it hoping to go viral on TikTok.

It’s shocking what some people will do for a bit of online attention these days.

Take this young Florida content creator who, after catching a tapeworm-infested bass while fishing on a lake. Instead of throwing away the fish after discovering the parasites, he ate it, knowing fully well that he could get infected.

@nick_kratkaTROUT CATCH AND COOK When I say catching a trout is the most demoralizing activity I’ve ever participated in I AM NOT JOKING!!! They swim up stream and stare at you as if they’re teasing the entire time. What’s more frustrating is every local has a different secret. You explain you can’t catch one and they say you’re doing it all wrong. Truthfully, every way to catch them works it seems. Salmon eggs, spinner baits, artificial power baits, I’d seen people catch one of these beauties with everything listed. The one I caught was at nearly 6 am right after the white waters. The locals say to cast downstream from the strong current because the trout will be laying in wait to catch prey stuck in the current. It is very popular to fly fish for trout, this is something I’d like to get into. The art of fly fishing is so methodical. That’s going to be my next mission to concur. RECIPE: Wild Trout Salt Black Pepper Garlic Powder Onion Powder Paprika Scale and gut the fish as shown in the video. Lather the seasonings above on the inside and outside of your trout. Cook for about 4-6 minutes on each side or until fish is cooked to your liking and enjoy!♬ original sound – Nick Kratka

Unsurprisingly, it wasn’t long until he started experiencing side effects like stomach aches, diarrhoea, nausea, siziness, and weakness.

Ultimately, he had to seek medical help and start taking deworming medication. Still, Kratka said he had “no regrets”

Now this one left me speechless.
