Well, she does just that when she and her eight kids face an alligator in the Florida Everglades. Gosselin took her children to the Sunshine State to celebrate the sextuplets sixth birthday. The surprise trip was documented for TLC's two-hour special, Kate Plus 8, which marks the return of the Gosselin brood to TV since Jon & Kate Plus 8 went off the air last year.
What else is in store for Kate and the kids on Sunday's show? More close encounters with creatures – they'll feed sting rays and exotic birds and swim with dolphins – as well as some tasty treats. They'll participate in an orange juice squeezing contest and eat birthday cake, of course!
Kate Plus 8 airs Sunday (9 p.m. EST) on TLC.
