Not for Those With a Weak Gag Reflex

July 8, 2008 4:48 PM

Launching, literally, on July 15, G4’s “Hurl!” combines the gastronomy of Fox’s “Glutton Bowl,” the physical challenges of “Double Dare” and the stomach-launching power of bad seafood.

In this clip, “Hurl!” contestants wolf down pounds of macaroni and cheese, take a spin in a human bowling ball and try not to relive that mac and cheese, all for a $1,000 payday.

Also featured is the “Hurl Warning,” an update to viewers that they may need a tarp at any moment.

Not in the clip is the actual upchuck, which is actually blocked out with graphics of numbered buckets, in order not to offend those with more conservative attitude toward throw-up.

Click play after the jump to enjoy, but it is a clip of people about to vomit, so viewer discretion is advised.
