A gay man in Florida does not just love mermaids - it’s his life.
Eric Ducharme, 22, is the subject of the latest TLC documentary ‘My Crazy Obsession’.
In the trailer for the episode, he is seen swimming in a natural spring while wearing a fish tail of his own creation.
He says: ‘My name is Eric Ducharme, and I’m obsessed with mermaids.
‘I eat, breathe and sleep mermaids. It’s a lifestyle - it’s my lifestyle. It’s the path in life that I have chosen.
