Many viewers have probably wondered how anyone can enter some of the squalid, over-stuffed homes featured on "Hoarding: Buried Alive" (Sun., 9 p.m. EST on TLC) without vomiting or passing out.
If not the worst house so far on the show, Caryn's house was certainly up near the top of the list. Things had gotten so bad that the city was even threatening to tear it down, and her psychologist barely made it through the front door before she had to leave in search of a stronger face mask.
Code enforcement officers Jeff and Brian braved the smell to go in and assess the state of the property, but it all became too much for Jeff once they reached the bathroom.
The overwhelming stench coming from the mold, stagnant water and piles of trash piled up all around the house turned his stomach and he started retching violently.
Heading for the door he said, "I've got some paperwork to do outside" and left in search of fresh air. Brian, meanwhile, seemed pretty unfazed by the filth and smells and continued his inspection.
"Hoarding: Buried Alive" airs Sundays at 9 p.m. EST on TLC.
