Some of us really enjoy a fresh, crunchy carrot, but few of us can boast a carrot penchant that could rival that of one veg-loving woman. Zizi Howell, the subject of an upcoming episode of TLC's "My Crazy Obsession" can't get enough of carrots -- and her interest goes far beyond the dinner table.
Howell's goal is to have more carrots than anyone else in the world, and if the following sneak peek is anything to go by, she's off to a good start.
Currently Howell's collection features over 1000 items, which include pillows, candles, soaps and a $4000 carrot dresser that holds her mother's ashes. And that's not all. She even collects carrots on her body.
"I have 35 carrots tattooed on my body," Howell revealed. "I've got a 24-carrot armband. I've got four tattooed on my other arm, six on my back, (and) a big carrot on my stomach."
Now that's devotion to a vegetable.
Learn more about Howell's carrot-filled life when "My Crazy Obsession" airs Wednesday night at 10:30 p.m. ET on TLC.
