You read that right, she likes to eat mattresses.

But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves. First, let’s talk about 44-year-old identical twins Amy and Becky.

These two have not been separated more than 30 minutes in the last 20 years. Friend’s claim that in the last 15 years, neither one of them have been in a long term relationship (unless they count each other) and the two go so far as to go on Becky’s blind date---together.

The synchronized eaters are obsessed with each other to the point that they weigh out their food and eat exactly the same thing so that they can stay the same size.

Of course they also have no problem talking over each other and completing each other’s sentences. This will definitely work against their dating efforts, unless of course, they just date themselves.

Then there is Jennifer. Where do we begin.

Let’s start at her mattress. First, she ate it. Second, she is now moving to her mother’s mattress.

The St. Louis woman has been consuming mattresses for about 20 years.

So how many mattresses could you eat in 20 years?

It looks like 8 is the right number. Of course, that is after Jennifer uses the lint roller to remove any stray hairs that might have stuck to the foam insert.

Eating about a square foot each day, Jennifer sneaks into her mother’s bedroom to grab a few pieces of the foam delicacy so that her mother will not find out.

“The reason I’m not eating my own mattress, is because I ate my own mattress already,” explains Jennifer.

This episode of “My Strange Addiction” is set to air on Jan 1, 2014 at 10:30 pm on TLC.
