The freaky eaters that were presented eat chalk, rocks, wood, toilet paper, raw meat, cigarette ashes, and chap stick (just to name a few). These eaters will also stray off into freaky food addictions. Someone was shown eating nothing but hamburgers. Someone ate fries, and nothing else. The people who live these experiences, keep this secret hidden behind closed doors.
