  • she needs her own show !

  • The dizzy dill electrophoretically offer because pansy whitely mend including a quiet airplane. rampant, nine scissors

  • Oh man, she brave, i was gagging the whole time 😭🤢😭🤢😭🤢

  • WHAT A CUTE LADY... SHE SHOULD HAVE HER OWN SEGMENT !!!!

  • Two ways to make wine from water using science. First way, take some grape vines, some sunlight, some soil, and add water. Later add yeast and time. Second way, take some grape concentrate, sugar and yeast. Add water and time. Both of these are chemical reactions, which is science. So science makes wine from water. So Bootsie is right!

  • I was saying "NOPE" the entire time after they started letting her touch and see actual insects I can see the dead ones in the case just fine... u take one out and put it on me, and I will melt and then evaporate away...

  • I wouldn't mind the giant cockroach - as long as it is slow like that one!

  • Oh my word!!! i hate millipedes more than i do spiders!! the more legs it has, the more scary it is.... I'm sitting here many, many miles away.. in a different time .. violently shaking my head NO!!! OMG no!!

  • Bootsie seems like a horrible person.

  • Congratulations to the Doctor and to Bootsie!

  • Love Bootsie!

  • Bootsie is so relatable and quotable

  • Thanks for that Bootsie. I need that...... 🤣🤣🤣

  • Bootsie for the WIN!

  • Aw, I loved that! Sometimes it takes being around a bug lover to learn to love. Entymologists have the biggest hearts because they have such a soft spot for the littlest hearts. My boss at the animal rescue I work for was an entymologist at one point. She had me come out to her ranch to deal with some black widows because she couldn't kill them without crying, but they were too dangerous to the rescue animals to keep.

  • I hate bootsie, period.

  • I like how a person such as Bootsie is so willing to turn her small-world naivete into fresh knowledge and wisdom. It's this singular quality that separates people like her from Q-Anoners.

  • I visited a bug museum some twenty years ago and got to hold insects similar to those in Bootsie's hand. Also an adult tarantula and a walking stick. It's experiences like this that really help connect us to the world we live in, and appreciate its natural wonders so much more.

  • NOPE had to look away at the millipede 🤢 This was a great segment though!

  • Aww I love Bootsie!!

  • OMG, when they showed her with the cockroach and her mouth agape, I was just imagining the heart attack she would have had if it just jumped right into her mouth.

  • Bootsie will you marry me🥰

  • I love Bootsie.

  • Booties reminds of my mom who would never think of touching a bug at all

  • I love Bootsie, please give her more segments!

  • Dr. Jessica Ware and Bootsie! A good combination. Very light and easy conversation about bugs.❤️👏

  • didn't expect to watch this whole vid

  • Yes! Congratulations to you Bootsie! I don't think I could have made myself touch bugs, even though I don't think I'm afraid of them. You seem genuine and funny. Keep being brave!

  • We love Bootsie!

  • For cicadas, adulthood is all about sex and death.

  • Is she accepting adoption paper? I would like her to adopt me

  • Dr. Jessica Ware championing Brood X and other insectae - best teacher for Bootsie!🌼

  • "Then what am I hearing?" "I don't know what you're hearing in your bushes Mom."

  • More of these segments please... I don’t care if Bootsie has other things to do or a life to live. More uninformed correspondent! The public demands it!!

  • In my part of the U.S., we don’t have the 17-year cicadas. Our cicadas come out and yell EVERY summer.

  • I been waiting bootie i love her

  • So it must have been 34 years ago now that my cat brought me a giant fly on my birthday. It's taken me this long to learn it was a cicada. Is that the same as a katydid? That's what I thought it was.

  • That's nasty someone call Peta

  • 😐😬

  • Millipedes are not harmful but never put your hand to your face after touching or holding one.

  • I’m terrified of bugs and I cannot trust anyone who says they “love” bugs or that bugs are “cute”.

    • Daring jumping spider Black soldier fly Harvestman Wooly bear caterpillar Inchworm Any butterfly

  • Crickets, Bootsie. Crickets.

  • 4:10 Okay... 4:20 Bootsie, you're a freak! 4:23 Lady, you're scaring us! 4:43 W.T.F.! 4:47 Now I see how her son made it out okay... 5:06 Clearly, these women have never read _Rule 34_ of the internet. 5:12 FFS, pretty sure she's never done it with the lights on. 7:51 Okay, Boots totally redeemed herself with that one hahaha....

  • R Kelly wants to be reincarnated as a baby squirrel that gets rescued by a 16yo girl.

  • I could live without this “series” in all honesty...

  • “I’m gettin’ paid regardless, bitch!” - Bootsie

  • Remember when Stevie Colburt tried to be funny mocking Bill O’Reilly? Sounds like Crackhead is living up to the “cuddle” that Colby tried to protect the Mandarin President from being the Big Man’s N-bomb-boy. “Hey! If you don’t vote for me, you ain’t the N-word my son wus talking about!”🤣😅😂 uzfire.info/camera/video/oanFinx2t6-WfI8

  • I love Bootsie so much.

  • lol. I legit forgot how or why I was watching this video that I had to double-check what channel I was on. masturbating squirrels? da fuck am I watching?! 😅🤣 she's right, though. I had to stimulate the kittens I raised after they were abandoned at one week old. You get a warm wet towel and it simulates the mother cat's licks and that's how you get the kittens to poop and pee.💁🏻‍♀️

  • I FREAKING LOVE BOOTSIE, PLEASE ADOPT ME!!!!

  • Isn't Bootsie Jimmy Kimmel's aunt?

  • Oh my god..it's my mom

  • Did Bootsy get her hundred bucks?

  • Laughing at her daughters name like that 😂😂😂

  • Uh-kay. I got half way through.

  • I was cringing for her and noticed that in her body language of submission. I wonder what she was paid? still, I'd run & hide, tell my son to do it himself.

  • Dr. Ware is a champion.

  • Before the military, I hated/was disgusted by bugs, anything bigger than an ant I didn't like. In the military, I didn't really have a choice so I just got over the bugs walking all over me while laying on a forest floor for hours. I was very proud of myself for getting over that! First day back as a civilian, I immediately came back to reason, no bugs for me! :D

  • BTW Aeshna is a genus name of dragonfly.... And a beautifull name :)

  • Please more of these

  • Breath, Bootsie. Ya gotta keep breathing... ;)

  • I'm watching this with no sound. It is even funnier that way. I wonder what they're talking about in the first half. They seemed like, all excited.

  • I ate a live cicada on a bet one time. I recommend pulling the wings off first. Surprisingly, it tasted a lot like walnut ice cream.

  • ❤️Bootsie! bugs not so much. next time, take Bootsie to a wine tasting!

    • That wouldn't fit into her Uninformed Correspondent gig though.

  • It would take so much more than $100 to let those bugs crawl on me. Fuck that noise.

  • isn't 'i am afraid of no roach' kind of a non mandatory life decision for the inhabitants of the bugged apple? thought that was that movie from the eighties all about.

  • is it possible not to love this woman?

  • She certainly sounds as informed as most GOP congresspeople.

  • 8:55 "Hi! This is Bootsie. I'm here with LHO with Stephen Colbert." Took me a moment to work it out! 🤣🤣

  • So brave!!!!!!

  • I really needed something hilarious that wasn't news related today. Thank you for this segment. Had me rolling over, it was such a delight.

  • Fuck bugs tho

  • Winged cockroaches are way grosser than the Madagascars. They scare the living crap outa me.

  • i dont like this skit ヅヅヅヅヅ

  • I went through this a few years ago. I really do not like most bugs (specially arachnids) but I went to an insect museum and forced myself to hold a tarantula, scorpion, stick bug, cockroach and a few others. I did the same as Bootsie. Just kind of freeze until the professional picks it up off of my arm. Trying so hard not to be the one that panics and accidentally smashes it. I don't hate them. I just don't want to be surprised by them.

  • Watching this while eating was *not* a good idea.

  • The erect margin specifically move because curler aditionally pretend including a pathetic save. quizzical, moldy hardcover

  • Woo HOO, Bootie’s back! Yay!🎉

  • The steady nephew retrospectively arrest because bun admittedly hop modulo a panoramic glockenspiel. silly, uttermost hate

  • 7:55 lol! Dang, Bootsie goes _hord._

  • How wonderful. I liked the uninformed corespondent the most. She told her son...bitch -I’m getting paid anyway. 😂

  • I just love Bootsie!

  • Hmmph, no mention of the role of insects in pollinating. Bootsie coulda learnt more & we wouldn't've got burnt (denied info). Insects are integral to food production. Y'all like to eat, donchya?

  • Bootsie is awesome.

  • Bootsie!! So proud of you!! Not sure I could have done that...

  • This was such an awesome segment, I cringed right along with her! Thank you so much for being so brave Bootsie!!! 🥰🤣😎🤩👍

  • i like bootsie lolol

  • I love how open and loving that entomologist is and how brave Bootsie really is confronting her fears like that. That is REALLY not an easy task! I'm glad they didn't go into the fungus infections that some of the cicadas have and that would have been very hard to explain and freaked Bootsie out too much right then.

  • This is the white woman version of my Mexican mother. Lmao

  • I have recurring nightmares where my room is filled with bugs, almost like in Indiana Jones. I don't think I'm especially bug phobic, but that dream is quite disconcerting.

  • I love Bootsie 😁💜

  • I learned so much with bootsie! 😁

  • Protect Bootsie at all costs.

  • I'm gettin' paid regardless Bitch! 🤣

  • I would NEVER put my tarantulas in the hands of someone who was that scared of insects! 😱 People like that tend to have a violent reflex that often results in the animal getting dropped, thrown, or crushed! I always cringe at those “dare” shows or whatever that are perfectly happy to risk the safety of bugs, small reptiles, and rodents just because it’s “funny”! 😡

  • Bootsie is a strange woman.

  • At the end Bootsie says "I still don't like bugs" but the title in the thumbnail is "BOOTSIE LOVES BUGS". Feel like they did that just to troll her 😂

  • WOOHOO! Cheers for BOOTSIE!!

  • Japanese beetles grabbing onto you when you're trying to pick them off your mom's roses like you were ordered are the worst! So creepy feeling!

    • I hated how they ate the flowers, but I found the bugs themselves cool. Shiny shells, crooked legs, clingy feet, occasionally poorly put away underwings, sudden buzzes, determined attempts to turn right side up.

  • Yo this is actually wholesome as fuck. Great segment.
