Introduced on TLC's 'My Crazy Obsession,' Eric Ducharme is obsessed with mermaids and regularly wears mermaid tails that he designs and creates himself.

Making regular trips to the Florida springs, he dons his fins and swims gracefully around below the water, precisely the same way I imagine a real merman would. Not to be brushed off as a crazy weirdo, Ducharme runs his own business, calling himself the 'Mertailer,' is in a serious relationship with someone who accepts his passion for mythical sea folk and, as his mom explains, "we have our own passions, that's Eric's life."

The ability to slip on his custom mermaid tails and transform into another being, shows how the creative and determined mind will stop at nothing to accomplish its goals. Stats for Merman-Morphing Obsessions Trending: Older & Average
