How eggs were really used in the the 400 eggs holds up 1 ton of cheerleaders in the Discovery Channel TV show? It seems like that there were nearly three times the 400 eggs as it was claimed! Was there another Big FAT Lie other than the wine bombs in that show? It seems that each egg tray holds 36 eggs (6 wide by 6 long). On a sheet of plywood, 32 trays layed out 4 trays wide by 8 trays long. That brings me to 1152 eggs! Yeah, I was trying to count'em, but the TV picture wouldn't stay still long enough.
