Gee Kate Gosselin, we never would've guessed that you've never been camping before.
This little tidbit is revealed when Mama Gosselin and her eight children make a visit to the Palin home on the latest episode of the TLC show “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.” Turns out Palin’s youngest daughter is a fan of the super-sized family, who currently star in another TLC vehicle, “Kate Plus Eight.”
You would think this pair would have tons in common, given that both are equally praised and reviled by fans and critics. They also both have had to get used to the glare of the media and being taken to task for their parenting skills.
The meeting starts out well, and Palin suggests the Gosselins come along with her family for one of their favorite pastimes: camping. Cue Gosselin looking slightly horrified at the bear safety class they visit in preparation for the trip. Apparently, you aren’t supposed to run away screaming when a bear is chasing you. Gosselin also doesn't look very comforted by Palin's display of her shooting skills just in case said bears attack.
Things don’t get much better once the camping trip actually kicks off, in the cold and the rain, no less. Let’s just say there is plenty of whining and a bit of a meltdown – and it wasn't from the Gosselin children.
“Sarah Palin’s Alaska” airs at 9 p.m. Sunday on TLC.
