What did you have for lunch today? We can guarantee it wasn’t the same as these two Kiwi pro athletes.

Last week All Black Jerome Kaino and professional boxer Joseph Parker were involved with some online banter about eating insects after watching TVNZ’s new reality show Survivor.

Kaino started the cheeky chat with, “You been hitting the tarantulas pre-fight Joseph Parker?”

The pair joked back and forth about munching on tarantulas, centipedes, crickets and scorpions, before Jerome declared: “Game on brother.”

It looks like curiosity got the better of them and they actually went through with the insect-eating challenge for lunch today.

Parker posted an Instagram video with the caption: “Lunch”

Lunch time 🤢

Another post by TVNZ2 shows Joseph beating Jerome by eating the insects the fastest.

We hope it’s the first of many challenges between these two tough guys.
