KSNT’s Katya Leick simply cannot handle being near cicadas.
The Kansas TV reporter was visiting Fort Riley, a local military installation, to file a story, but she didn’t realize that her visit coincided with The Great Awakening—the dreaded cicadas were waking up from their 17-year-long sleep.
Here’s what happened when one landed on her face.
Cicadas are completely harmless to human beings, but there’s no denying their creepy-crawly factor. It’s easy to be grossed out by them, especially if they land on your face.
While we sympathize with Leick, we must also show you this 47-second-video of her squaring off with the entomological devils. She filed her story in the face of insect terror, and for that, she earns our respect.
