What’s the Craziest Dare you’ve ever done?
I’ve done a lot of crazy stuff… but by far, the CRAZIEST DARE I’ve done was…
I WRESTLED ALLIGATORS.
Where? Mosca, Colorado… at The Gator Farm.
When? Summer 2011
The Gator Farm is the only place in the world where you can get hands-on experience with all sizes of alligators… all the way up to 600lb, 9-foot alligators!
I started handling 2-3 foot alligators in a small swimming pool.
Then moved up to 5-6 foot alligators in the pond.
Then graduated to the 9 foot alligator swamp.
This was clearly the most intense and outrageous thing I’ve ever done.
If you know me at all, you know I’m a risk-taker. Why?
Because the things I learn and experience are invaluable and will never be forgotten.
Risk allows me to … experience, learn, change, and share.
Honestly, it makes me sad when I see some of my friends consistently run from risk. They allow fear to dictate most of their lives. Then run from pain, and the unknown, and they miss out on so many opportunities to learn, change, and share.
Where did I learn to be a risk taker? My parents. Remember my hero… bungee jumped the Victoria Falls in South Africa… and my mom was an business entrepreneur. I’m so thankful for parents who taught me to take risks. How did they teach me?
They took risks themselves.
p.s. If you have any specific questions about my alligator wrestling experience… just leave your question, and I’ll reply.

I married Greg TeSelle. The risk taker. The alligator wrestler.
