When he was at the height of his career, Mike Tyson was a force to be reckoned with. Well, if I’m to be honest, he’s still a force to be reckoned with. I wouldn’t want to anger him then meet up with him in a dark alley. Back in 1997, while in the boxing ring with Evander Holyfield, he infamously bit of a part of Holyfield’s ear. Now Tyson is weighing in on what ear tastes like.

Tyson appeared on a Bravo show called Watch What Happens: Live this past Sunday, and during the show, host Andy Cohen asked Tyson what human ear tastes like. It’s a question that some of us may have actually thought at some point, given the “zombie” happenings of late, but it’s doubtful that most of us would have asked it.

Surprisingly, Tyson didn’t flinch at the question and answered, “Depends on which ear you bite.”

Then Tyson admitted: ‘It was not too tasty.’ Cohen asked if it would be good to put Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Barbeque Sauce on the ear to make it taste better. Tyson: ‘That would have been a delicacy.’


Proving that he’s not afraid of any question, I have to give Cohen props for asking. Most of us would never have broached that topic with Mike Tyson, and the fact that he went there shows that he’s either brave or stupid. Luckily it turned out well for him.
