Ralph lives and dies for Ketchup. Mustard has taken over Barry’s life.

Two grown men's fascination with edible condiments has overtaken their lives, as revealed in this sneak peek from the upcoming episode of My Crazy Obsession.

“It’s given me pleasure, it takes a fair chunk of my life,” Ralph admitted, in the teaser — which you can watch here on

The odd attraction has grown so deep that in 2007 Ralph even cashed in his life insurance policy to pay for some new additions to his collection!

But unlike Ralph, Barry is lured by mustard.

He told the TLC show: “It has taken over my life. This is what I do every day."

With over 5,500 samples from 50 states and 80 countries -- and valued at over $125,000 -- not surprisingly, Ralph's collection is the largest in the country.

So how did it all start?

According to Barry, he once heard voices that told him to start collecting.

But now he's hearing another voice: his wife.


"There are times that I think it is a little too much," she warned, in the episode.

My Crazy Obsession airs each Wednesday on TLC at 10/9c.
