Sean Evans and Chili Klaus, you've been put on notice.
We thought it was pretty insane when our Hot Ones host and his Scandinavian guest sat down earlier this year to eat a Carolina Reaper, which is rated the hottest pepper in the world.
But let's be real: They've got nothing on Wayne Algenio of Jamaica, Queens, who demolished the Guinness World Record for eating the most Carolina Reapers in one minute at last weekend's NY Hot Sauce Expo, according to ABC News.
You can watch the excruciating footage above. Some things to note:
- You can see "Smokin' Ed" Currie, the same mad scientist who furnished the Carolina Reapers for our challenge, watching in the back. His PuckerButt Pepper Company in Fort Mill, SC, is ground zero for Scoville insanity.
- Algenio is such a G that he filmed the footage himself, then picked up his phone and turned his back to the crowd to capture a celebration.
- The rules state that you have can't vomit or drink any liquids for a full minute after finishing. (An unnamed source told us that he later saw Algenio throwing up in the bathroom...that must have been something.)
