WATCH: An Inside Look at the Interstate Mullet Toss on 'My America'
The My America team traveled down to the Flora-Bama – a famous beach bar located right along the Florida-Alabama border. There they found a contest you'll only see in America – the Interstate Mullet Toss.
This morning on Fox and Friends, Elisabeth Hasselbeck brought us a look at this extraordinary event.
Everyone from professional baseball players, football players, and beachgoers can be seen hurling mullet fish across state lines for a chance at immortality. Contestants pay $15 for a toss, and they take their chance seriously. One man said he’s been training for years and practices throwing soap at home.
It’s not all fun and games. A recent study estimated that the Mullet Toss brings in $10 million for the state of Florida alone.
"It's more than a party and it's more than throwing a fish. What is though, is it's America. You have a hodgepodge of people from all walks of life, all different backgrounds, coming together for three days and everybody gets along," said John McInnis, one of the owners of the Flora-Bama.
He said nobody ever imagined what the event would turn into when it started three decades ago.
