Extreme Collectors
Season 9  |  Episode 5  |  SBS Viceland  |  August 8, 2020

Throughout history, people have expressed their passions and their personalities through their collections. But some collectors' passions cross the line into obsession. In London, Viktor Wynd fills his home with eccentric arrays of objects, ranging from tiny human baby skeletons to shrunken heads. Calling them his children, Viktor is known to kiss them affectionately and converse with them. In the Philippines, Herbert Chavez is the self-proclaimed Filipino Superman, a long-time collector of Superman paraphernalia who, in the last 15 years, has undergone a series of cosmetic surgeries to resemble his superhero.
