“I really did the research, but I really didn’t understand what it was that we were going to see when we got there,” the reality TV stalwart, 41, tells the camera. “Our tour guide, Jamie, was diving into these little displays and letting the kids hold everything. I mean, I just thought we were going to walk around and see bugs behind glass, and he was handing them out.”

Gosselin makes it clear to Jamie when they arrive that she is not thrilled to be there, but things get dramatically worse when the creepy crawlers emerge from their confines.

“The kids, they say [about me], ‘Ah, she’s always so dramatic,’ and whatever — no, this was real, like, [pretends to hyperventilate],” she explains. “I admire those people that love bugs, but I am not one of those people.”

She even asks the group, “If I faint, though, will you guys take proper care of me?”

At the end of the trip, Gosselin is encouraged to touch an African millipede, and after doing so, starts screaming and freaking out.

Watch the clip above to see her kids’ reactions. Kate Plus 8 airs on TLC Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
