    Man dies after live $#@!roach-eating contest

    Man dies after live $#@!roach-eating contestBy SUZETTE LABOY
    About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami


    The winner of a roach-eating contest in South Florida died shortly after downing dozens of the live bugs as well as worms, authorities said Monday.


    About 30 contestants ate the insects during Friday night's contest at Ben Siegel Reptile Store in Deerfield Beach about 40 miles north of Miami. The grand prize was a python.


    Edward Archbold, 32, of West Palm Beach became ill shortly after the contest ended and collapsed in front of the store, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office statement released Monday. He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead. Authorities were waiting for results of an autopsy to determine a cause of death.


    "Unless the roaches were contaminated with some bacteria or other pathogens, I don't think that $#@!roaches would be unsafe to eat," said Michael Adams, professor of entomology at the University of California at Riverside, who added that he has never heard of someone dying after consuming roaches. "Some people do have allergies to roaches," he said, "but there are no toxins in roaches or related insects."


    None of the other contestants became ill, the sheriff's office said.


    There was no updated phone number listed for Mr. Archbold in West Palm Beach.


    "We feel terribly awful," said store owner Ben Siegel, who added that Mr. Archbold did not appear to be sick before the contest. "He looked like he just wanted to show off and was very nice," Mr. Siegel said, adding that Mr. Archbold was "the life of the party."


    Mr. Siegel said Mr. Archbold was selling the exotic prize to a friend who took him to the contest.


    The Miami Herald reported the grand prize has been put aside in Mr. Archbold's name and will be given to his estate.


    A statement from Mr. Siegel's attorney said all the participants signed waivers "accepting responsibility for their participation in this unique and unorthodox contest."


    The bugs consumed were from an inventory of insects "that are safely and domestically raised in a controlled environment as food for reptiles."

    All this eating contests are not healthy and as you can see in this situation you can even die. I always found all kinds of this contests very stupid.

    Only porn stars can swallow that much $#@! and live.....he stood no chance.

    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    This reminds me of the lady that died during a water drinking contest to win a Nintendo Wii... a contest that continued on despite repeated warnings from doctors and nurses to the radio station involved regarding the dangers of water intoxication (you can't consume too much water in a short period of time... you'll die).
