Kelly Ripa Tries Noodling With 'Hillbilly Handfishin' Cast (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Friday on "Live! With Kelly," host Kelly Ripa decided to try her hand at noodling with the cast of "Hillbilly Handfishin.'" Noodling is a sport where fisherman wade into the water and literally try to catch catfish with their hands and feet.

Ripa didn't fair very well. "Hillbilly Handfishin'" stars Skipper Bivins and Trent Jackson blindfolded her to simulate the murky water they have to deal with in the swamps of Mississippi, and she got squeamish at the prospect of a catfish biting down on her foot. Skipper didn't help matters by jokingly grabbing her foot, which thoroughly freaked Ripa out.

"Hillbilly Handfishin'" airs on Animal Planet.
