Glutton for Punishment

Hosted by Bob Blumer

Watermelon Seed Spitting

Hope, Ark. is a small town with a big tradition. Each year, this small community of self-confessed melon heads hosts the Hope Watermelon Festival and Watermelon Seed Spitting contest.

The competition is fierce, attracting seed-spitting champions from all over the state. In between bouts of hard labor on a watermelon farm where the world's heaviest melons are grown, Bob will perfect his seed-spitting technique under the tutelage of 10-year-old champion Emily Rowe.
