Country superstar Brad Paisley and his wife Kimberly Williams had a strange first anniversary - they spent two weeks learning to scuba dive and eat bugs.

The couple headed for Mexico's Mayan Riviera and decided to soak up the local culture.

Actress Williams says, "We went to this sweat lodge and I ate bugs. I wanted to embrace the culture. They fried them. They had crickets that were fried and they tasted like over-cooked shrimp shells. There was also ant caviar.

"Brad should be on FEAR FACTOR every week. He loved it. We made bug tacos because they bring flour tortillas and different sauces and you just toss worms, crickets and ants in there.

"It was nasty but Brad loved it."
