We could go on and on, discussing which Spice Girl we are… Which Disney character our best friend is… and which David Bowie we are…

But don’t you want to discuss WHAT FOOD-BORNE ILLNESS ARE YOU?

YA YOU DO! Which is why you know you’re going to take a BREAK from BuzzFeed so as to watch the latest GiGi Eats and take the mini quiz below… Don’t worry! You can find out what FONT you are after!!

Different Fonts


Read the following scenario:

After spending hours slaving over a feast that even Gordan Ramsey would sneak into the kitchen and munch on as a midnight snack, you start plating the delectable meal, only to **WHOOPS** drop a majority of the mouthwatering food all over the floor, that, you must admit, has not been cleaned in over three weeks.

Now select the answer that best describes you:

A. You look both ways as if you were about to steal a pack of hazmat suits from the super market, and quickly pick the food up off the floor, blow on it and put it back on the plates. Then you remind yourself that “if a tree falls in the woods, and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound – NOPE!” Same principal applies to food.

Tree Falling Timber!

B. Immediately start to cry and collapse on the floor, at a complete loss for words. You then channel Fido and lap the mess up off the floor with your tongue. “If the dog can do it without getting sick, why can’t I?,” you contemplate.

GiGi Eating Off The Floor

C. $%^*&!@#$%*!!!! So loudly that your neighbors call 911. Prior to the police showing up at your house, you begin the most epic of all food fights with yourself and take a few bites of the succulent food you $%^*ed up, as you sling it around.

Foods Fighting

D. Call your dogs and/or cats into the kitchen, hey, they deserve a treat right, and then proceed to pick up the phone and call Domino’s. Two medium sized pizzas with all the fixings, PLEASE! You only hope your kids and significant other don’t come home before you can get rid of the evidence. After all, they still think you aced your final exam at culinary school by making the world’s most delicious hand-crafted deep-dish pizza.

E. Grab a fork and dig in. All the plates are in the dish washer, that hasn’t been run in two weeks, anyways.

Now… Before revealing your Food-Borne Illness Identity, check out whether or not the 5-Second Rule is actually a myth or reality!


If you related most to…

A. Then you are E. coli: You tend to be serious and have a hard time loosening up, however, on the rare occasion when you do, you rival salmonella (see below).

B. Then you are Salmonella: You loving socializing and being the center of attention and you have no problem fighting for this reputation.

C. Then you are Listeria: You’re a rather independent and quiet individual but when you want to make your presence known, you do not hold back.

D. Then you are Norovirus: You are a people pleaser, which causes you to stress out easily.

E. Then you are Staph Bacteria: You dance to the beat of your own drum and don’t like to play by the rules.


So tell me…

  • What food borne illness are YOU!? Does your personality ACTUALLY match the description?
  • Tell me your biggest FOOD FAIL!
  • What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever put in your mouth?

  1. So I just realized you were shooting this entire video from the floor. LOL. I’m totally guilty of the 5 second rule. I say we have a hangry floor meal in March when I come visit?!

    • Bah ha ha ha!!! It was definitely not the most comfortable thing to film, LOL! But yes, SCREW THE 5 second rule, lets RISK IT and have a floor meal or what I like to call a FMEAL together! :)

  2. I am most definitely Listeria! give it up for individualistic personalities! Woot! lol. 5 second rule… ok, yes I am guilty of it BUT it depends on where it falls. :) And when I am HANGRY watch out! My full blown Puerto Rican temper comes out in 1.1 secs.

  4. Very creative post!!

    My floor never goes three weeks without being cleaned.

    I might pick up a small piece of solid food, but if it is sticky, in the trash!

    There is always something in the forest with ears!

    Food fall or fail: I was visiting my brother in LA (Westwood), and his wife was cooking our dinner in an electric skillet with the extension wire running from the dining room table across the room to the outlet, and while walking across the room I tripped over the cord and the entire meal went on the floor!!!

    Takeout is very tasty in Westwood, lol!

    • OMG Dr. J do you think you could come clean my floors!!! They’re probably the one thing I hate to clean! I am such a neat freak otherwise, but floors, UGHHHH! I just vacuumed them yesterday though, GO ME!

      BAHHH HA HA AH! Where did you get take out from in West LA!?!

  5. You are so friggin clever! What a creative quiz. I’m Listeria, with a side of E. Coli :) I wouldn’t eat the whole meal off the floor, but I as I’m swearing out loud at myself I’d pick at the “safe” food that “hasn’t touched the floor,” before calling my dog over to lap the rest up.
    Weirdest thing I’ve put in my mouth? Lamb Brains when I was in Taiwan! Surprisingly good.
    I got the Thanks-a-lot cookie… never even heard of em’ Ha!
    Hope you cured that HANGRYness quick :)
    Heather @ HeatherRunsFast.com recently posted..My Laid Back Valentines Day WeekendMy Profile

    • BA HA HA HA HA HA HA! The “safe” food – yep, I’ve done that too… But wait, I just eat it ALL off the floor, bacteria be damned. However, now I am going to think of Listeria with a side of E.Coli… Mmmm, sounds like lunch to me!

      LAMB BRAINS huh?! I bet there are a lot of healthy fats in there….. I think these BRAINS would cure my HANGRY in no time! ;)

  6. LOL I’m C, Listeria! Yikes though! Food borne illness just scares the crap out of me! I was Hangry yesterday because I’m really trying to cut back on carbs and sugar. I had to teach my 12-year-old student in beach volleyball and I worked the poor girl because I was crabby. And kind of yelled at her mom a little for being late. ha ha!

  7. probably A hahaha. Unless is it soup…then, well I guess the puppy gets some extra dinner haha. But ordering a pizza instead sounds good too…hmmm I AM SO TORN! I just can’t decide! So many variables!

    Davida @ The Healthy Maven recently posted..Thai Salmon SaladMy Profile

  10. My kitchen is what I think is clean but will break all the rules and eat food from everywhere, floor, counter, cabinet, yesterday’s frying pan etc. I’ve said it before I contribute my dog like eating ability to being homeless a young teen. I some how once ended up buying what I thought was all natural beef stew, it was but for dogs :( tasted kind of grainy. But being a good boy I finished it and went for a walk. The answer is yes it makes a sound, we are not the only creature that hears. I’m type A of course and no paparazzi for me.

    • All natural beef stew meat for dogs just had added kidneys, hearts, livers, etc right?! I personally believe that to be FAR HEALTHIER than the typical beef you find in the grocery store, so eat it all up and ENJOY IT!! :)

  11. I’m the norivirus – total people pleaser! Yep! Gotta make sure everyone is happy. Um but yeah in my own house the 5 sec rule def applies! I eat stuff off my floor all the time!
    Jill recently posted..That weekend I realized I’m 34 years older than someone?!My Profile

  12. Not a fan of the 5-second rule. The boys pretty much know that even at home if something falls on the floor (even if it is their very last piece of ______) it goes in the trash!!!
    And, with the meal dumped on the floor – I would totally call Dominos!!!

  13. I’m definitely Salmonella and I had a very similar experience once where about $50 worth of really good seafood went sliding into the sink 5 minutes prior to serving at a dinner party. I cried, screamed, and tried to salvage a few scallops. I didn’t actually lick any of the food out of the sink…but I wanted to.

    You’ve convinced me to refrain from my disgusting, food poisoning-waiting-to-happen ways though. Thank you for the informative video :)

    • I wouldn’t eat it straight off the floor, but I have no trouble at all re-cooking it and still eating/serving it. A flash-steam or quick fry (coconut oil or bacon grease, depending on the meal) will effectively kill off any bacteria that may have managed to get on the food, and can easily be done in 5 minutes for nearly any dish. Problem solved! Also, while you may not have been planning for adding an alternate cooking method, it can still be utilized to enhance the meal! Add some garlic and onions to the steam water (or the fry pan) for additional flavor and complexity. For more sweet dishes, add orange juice to the steam-water. For more savory meals, use chicken broth.
      Again, I wouldn’t eat it directly off the floor. But there’s just no reason to waste good quality food and the prep that went into making it. It can be safely salvaged!
      Unless there’s hair on the floor… That’s where I draw the line. No hair in my food! Ever!

    • No wonder why you and I get along so well Whitney, I too am Salmonella!!!
      And I remember you telling me this STORY!!!! But even though it was disheartening, I definitely giggled a few times when I read this – I was laughing WITH YOU though, not at you! It makes me happy that I am not the only one who screams and cries over wasted food!

  14. I am Listeria – hear me roar!!! Now I know why I woke-up sick to my stomach last Wednesday morning and then was fine 4 hours later. I probably ate something off the floor the day before. JK – I never do that!!!…but my kids do it all.the.time. They’re SO fast about it!! They will eat a pretzel they find in the car that’s probably been there for a week. I’m amazed they are sick every damn day!

  15. Buzzfeed is scraping the bottom of the barrel with some of their quizzes lately! I saw the font quiz and… really? Yours was much more fun! I believe in the 5 second rule NOW. I was always the dainty little asshole with hand sanitizer and got sick ALL THE TIME. Ryan, on the other hand, does things like eat a slice of hot pizza that landed face down on the driveway and has an immune system of steel. I’m easing up on my OCD and surprise, surprise. I don’t get sick as often.
    Kristina @ damntenpounds recently posted..Friday Five – Mad Respect, BroMy Profile

    • Perhaps I should walk down the street to BuzzFeed and tell them that YOU think their quizzes are starting to SUCKKKKK and that mine is far better and they should hire me! Yes? Do you think that could work? LOL

      And yes, there is a happy medium with being CLEAN, that’s for sure. Don’t eat food off the floor of a dining hall, however, you don’t have to wear a hazmat suit! ;)
      GiGi recently posted..You’ll Frittata Over This Heart-y Dish!My Profile

  16. Hahaha, I was E. Coli. And actually, the personality is spot on, so good job! That being said, I might eat a VERY delicious meal off of my own floor (I live alone), but I would NEVER eat off the floor if I lived with anyone else. And if I dropped the meal on someone ELSE’S floor, absolutely no way. Ew. That’s probably crazy because my germs are bad too.
    Amy @ Long Drive Journey recently posted..From Start to Finish – Unplugging with Yoga [Guest Post]My Profile

    • OMG I actually got your personality!! YES!!!! I should once again be considered as a horoscope writer! ;) What was the LAST THING you dropped on the floor and ate?

      Your germs are yours, they’re from you – so by all means, you can eat them, LOL! Makes perfect sense ;)
      GiGi recently posted..Banish Your Kryptonite!My Profile

  17. I don’t get HANGRY anymore… It used to happen, BP (Before Paleo); but now I when I get hungry, I have complete confidence and control over whether I eat or not. Fasting IS an option, and occasionally the one I choose.
    I hate to say it, but that depends on your definition of “sound.” See, if sound is “the sensation percieved by the sense of hearing” then there must be a person there to hear it in order for there to be a sound. If, however, your definition is a “mechanical disturbance that propagates as a longitudinal wave through a solid, liquid, or gas” then no, the sound is made whether it was percieved or not.
    That being said: the “Observer Effect” suggests (though misleading in this case) that by the very question, the asker is assuming that the “Observer Effect” is relevant to the question. Based on that theory, sound is neither the mechanical disturbance, nor the sensation percieved, but rather the act of percieving the sensation. So; to twist the question on it’s head: if a tree falls in the forrest, and local flora and fauna were there to hear it, but no human, did it make a sound? The answer to that question determines whether the question was asked relative to the “Observer Effect” and therefore allows the responder to decide which definition of “sound” is applicable to the question asked.

    More than you wanted to know?

  19. I would have been swearing up a storm but not eating it!!! Why, I am not a good cleaner or a person that clean consistently – so.. if I had cleaned the floor – I probably would have eaten anything that was solid. ;)

    You are so fun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  20. I am absolutely E. Coli and reading that description, yup…that’s me to a T. So much.
    And when I’m “hangry”? My friend used to call me the Incredible Hulk – “You won’t like me when I’m hungry.” I’m so pleasant unless someone takes food and/or sleep from me.
    Then..I’m scary.

  21. Hello! Eating off the floor is how I keep my immune system strong! And I have totally rinsed off food under some running water…at the very least I need to make sure the cat hair is off of it. I do have SOME standards. : )
    mandy @ fatgirlgonehealthy recently posted..Fat Girl Press RoomMy Profile

    • Ha Ha Ha!!!! That’s how I feel when I drop things on the floor at my parent’s house – I don’t need the extra seasoning of… Dog hair! ;)

  22. This comment may be a duplicate but I didn’t see my other one post…hmmm.

    Anyway, eating off the floor is how I keep my immune system strong! I totally rinse it off under some running water. At the very least, I need to get the cat hair off. I do have SOME standards. Ha! : )

  23. Well, is your little quiz thing is calling me a piece of #$%@ for serving guests food stealthily picked up of the floor? I feel more like Listeria. Years back, when one of my boys was a toddler and came out of the McDonald’s (gasp) playground eating a chicken nugget HE FOUND IN THERE, and he lived, I knew it was no big deal. The bigger health danger was probably the mechanically-separated chicken nugget fried in who knows what.
    Jennifer F recently posted..Pardon Me, is That a Parsnip Apple Muffin?My Profile

    • My quiz is DEF NOT calling you a piece of #$%@ lol!! It’s just calling you a little dirty ;) But that’s okay, clearly we are ALL at fault, everyone who has commented seems to like to eat food off the floor, LOL!

      AND OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!! I am dying! A nugget……. In the playground. It could have been there for weeks! OMG! LOL!!! But hey, he’s still alive ;) It just built up his immune system! I completely agree with you – we are more likely to “die” from the nasty ingredients ADDED to the chicken!! I bet bacteria doesn’t even live on McDonalds food because even bacteria thinks it’s nasty! LOL!

  24. HAHA this is awesome! Also, it totally depends on what I cooked…if it as a rice or quinoa dish or something I literally had to scrape off the floor then I’d probably be Listeria…otherwise, E.Coli all the way! LOL
    Thanks for making me laugh tonight :D

    • Bah ha ha ha aha ha! Hey, different bacteria lurk on different things, so you’re more than welcome (is that the right term for this, lol) to be more than one bacteria! ha ha ha!

  25. While I do follow the 5 second rule in other people’s kitchens, with 7 dogs even the most casual of food lovers would not want to eat off my floor. So, I’m the norovirus all the way.

  26. The weirdest thing I ever put in my mouth? I don’t think he’d like me to answer that. heh heh heh

  33. So, Listeria for the win! I am also Posh Spice AND the Dowager Queen from Downton Abbey. Despite the horrendous winter and all my complaining about it, I am Alaska! I have addicted to those silly surveys. Eh, eat off the floor. Isn’t there some saying about a pound of dirt. I also have an 8 year old boy who doesn’t brush his teeth or change his underwear. I try not to fight the natural order of things nor do I sweat the small stuff. Please don’t ever let me be hangry. It is really unpleasant for all involved.

    • I GOT ALASKA TOO! ha! And I hate the cold, SO VERY MUCH! Perhaps we should buddy up and buy a huge yet cozy cabin to keep ourselves WARM… But it must have lots of windows so we can just look outside at the pretty sights. LOL!

      I hope you’re not hangry right now… If you’re starting to feel Mr. Hangry a coming, GO GRAB a high protein snack, ASAP!! ;) I’ve got your back Tara!

  34. I’m a good mix.. I’d probably save what I could off the top (not all of it touched the floor, I’d rationalize) and then make or order a back up dinner, too. And cry or yell at some point!

  35. Haha love this GiGi! I am the most boring one on there. Listeria! Although I think I would be hysterically crying while throwing food around rather than angry! No-one, not even the floor, takes my food!

  36. Love you!!!! This is hilarious. I’m totally guilty of falling into the 5 second rule trap. GUILTY!!! I know, I know. But, I’d still pick A – I can’t waste anything, I’m a cheapskate.

  62. Funny scenario. Ok, I am Norovirus….except I probably wouldn’t call Dominos. Now if it was only a small piece and I had clean floors I would definitely salvage the dish. ;)

  64. E. coli!! Haha, not without cursing my head off and thinking ‘WHY ME?!’ first though! I remember a few months ago, I dropped my slice of cake on the floor…not my fiancé’s slice, BUT MINE. Needless to say, I was totally gutted, and he found it hilarious haha. The worst feeling in the world :p

  65. Hi GiGi,
    My biggest food weakness is Lays Potato Chips and if I dropped my last good, salty greasy chip I would probably do an (A.) and kiss it up to God ( like we did as kids)! Thank you so much for sharing this hilarious and thought-provoking post on the Healthy, Happy, Green & Natural Blog Hop! I appreciate it!

  66. Lol. This is perfect. I have admit to loving the Buzzfeed quizzes (today I was told that I am Hermione, I discovered my soulmate author, I am Captain America…) Ha. There was also a quiz for what type of pocket I am. Which I have not completed. Yet.

    Can I pick a few? I’m not too scared of picking the food off the floor, but I often call my dog in multiple times a day to lick up whatever I’ve spilled. She’s a keeper ;)
