'My Crazy Obsession' Premiere: Woman Chooses Rats Over Her Husband (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Chantal loves rats. She has since she was 16-years-old, when she got her first one. Since that time, she said she knew this was her calling in life. A calling that got her featured on the season premiere of "My Crazy Obsession."

At one point, Chantal was faced with a choice between her husband and her rats. She now has about 19 pet rats, and her husband has moved out because of them. If for no other reason, this is evidence enough that her love of the rats has become an obsession.

At one point in the episode, her son Kevin said, "I grew up with my siblings, and they were rats, so ... " So, that's a "crazy obsession," right?

During filming, one of the rats got sick, and it was devastating for Chantal. She did everything she could to resuscitate Blossom, but the rat passed away.

The Hollywood Reporter said that at least the show got off to a pet-friendly start for its second season. Channel Guide Magazine agreed, saying that Chantal was the perfect person to kick off the season because she's both obsessed and crazy.

Tune in for more surprises on "My Crazy Obsession," Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
