Youth eating large purple sea urchins as part of a youth fear factor

Fear Factor

Traditional Foods Fear Factor provided lots of entertainment for the crowd! In the preliminary rounds, people were challenged to eat sea urchins, octopus and cockles. The final round was downright nasty! A chunky, blended meal of McDonald’s burger, fries and Coke. Justin Billy of Cape Mudge managed to take the title home this year, AND keep all the food in his stomach!

Pit cook preparation

Shawn “Sugar” Decaire and Sandy “Salmon Sandwich” George prepare the second pit to cook the seafood. Manilla clams and oysters are placed on top of salal, covered with skunk cabbage leaves and then sand. They are left to cook for 30 minutes. In one photo, you can see Shawn pouring water to the bottom of the pit through bill kelp, producing steam for cooking.
