Content Creator Willingly Eats tapeworm-Infested Fish for Views

23-year-old Nichola Kratka, a self-described ‘extreme eater’, deliberately ate a fish infested with tapeworms and filmed himself doing it in the hopes of going 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 decided to eat it, knowing full well that he could become infected. Unsurprisingly, it wasn’t long until he started experiencing side effects like stomach aches, diarrhea, nausea, siziness, and weakness. In the end, he had to seek medical help and start taking deworming medication. Still, Kratka said he had “no regrets”…

“I’m an idiot, I’m not going to lie, this was totally my fault,” Kratka told his fans in a follow-up TikTok video. “I went to the doctor and he said it is more than likely that I have tapeworm or some type of parasite inside me. I’m going to the bathroom non-stop, my stomach is killing me.”

“I have no regrets,” he added. “I will continue extreme eating as long as I’m alive.”

Nichola Kratka revealed that the doctor gave him a number of deworming drugs, because he didn’t know exactly what kind of worms he had injected. Some of the worms cause seizures and muscle damage, and there have been cases in which the worms got into the patient’s eye or even into their brains, causing serious health problems.

Kratka reached his goal, he got international attention for his stunt, but the feedback from viewers has been generally negative with most people criticizing the young content creator for lacking common sense.
