Jon Jenkins, a contestant on “The Great British Bake Off,” which is airing its current season in the U.K., horrified viewers this week when he chugged a jug full of raw egg whites during a “pastry week” challenge.
The show posted a short clip of Jenkins pulling a Balboa to Twitter on Tuesday.
“Reminds me of ‘Rocky,’” Jenkins said after downing the slimy liquid, referring to a scene in the boxing classic where Sylvester Stallone’s character cracks a few for his morning beverage.
After separating eggs for a puff pastry technical challenge, Jenkins motions to a bowl full of raw egg whites that other contestants would have most likely thrown away.
“When you finish separating your eggs, you’ve got these lovely egg whites, and never let them go, ’cause there’s good protein in them.”
Then he gulps down the raw eggs.
Naturally, viewers at home freaked out.
Now the mere sight of raw eggs will make our guts feel like this forever:
