Shocking video of Indian reality show contestants eating glass bulbs and much more

Last year at this time, a video of a Dutch So You Think You Can Dance auditioner dancing on his penis went viral, and now, another audition on an international talent show is blowing up, thanks to contestants who eat glass bulbs and get run over by a car, among other things that should destroy their bodies but do not.
