Dropping Into a Cave to Chase Angry Eels on 'Extreme Cuisine' (VIDEO)

Dropping Into a Cave to Chase Angry Eels on 'Extreme Cuisine'The word "extreme" seems to get thrown around a lot these days. We have extreme sodas, extreme sporting events, and so on and so forth. And we're a little skeptical about some of these things, to be honest. So we'll just actually have to tune in to the show 'Extreme Cuisine With Jeff Corwin' (Thu., 8PM ET on Food Network) -- in order to learn if it's really EXTREME TO THE MAX.

On the latest episode of the show, host (and "food anthropologist") Jeff Corwin travels to New Zealand, where he hunts down an obscure species of eel. Supposedly, these eels are good eating, but in order to reach them, you have to rappel down into a cave. Also, the cave is pitch black, and is filled with waist-deep, freezing cold water.

... And in addition to that, the eels are enormous. Plus, they like to bite! Okay, we guess this all qualifies as pretty "extreme." Certainly, we wouldn't want to have to do it, just to get something to eat.

Jeff Corwin, you disappoint me.Allowing yourself to get involved with a reality show. Can't think of a bigger waste of TV time than a reality show. They should be banned from TV entirely. If not that, then shoved onto one channel where reality show junkies can get their fix 24/7 without changing channels or recording anything.

How far does a species have to go to hide from human's insatiable hunger for "exotic" food?

Anyone who eats eels needs to go through all the hell to catch them.
