- Eat It or Wear It Challenge
This challenge is messy but it’s so much fun as long as you can handle putting disgusting food in your mouth. You have to eat a food or put it in your mouth like mustard, ketchup, sauce, mayonnaise, etc. If you don’t want to eat it, you have to dump it in your head. You would think eating a rather disgusting product is the worst part, but having heaps of smelly, wet, and sticky food all over your body is just as bad.
If you want to do this challenge, better do this outside your house. You don’t want your house to be full of disgusting food, right? Or if you want to record it inside your house, you will definitely need some plastic sheets to cover the floor, and the furniture.
