Looks like they put themselves in hot water.
Last week, we watched a chef go temporarily deaf when he attempted to eat the world’s hottest noodles, otherwise known as “death noodles.” Well, now we have the sick pleasure of seeing two young ladies attempt to tackle an equally impressive feat: the world’s hottest pepper challenge.
Officially dubbed “the world’s hottest pepper,” the Carolina Reaper stands alone atop the Scoville rankings, and is said to be 440 times hotter than a jalapeño. We see just how spicy this pepper is after Lizzy and Sabrina each attempt to eat one on camera. The results? Well, let’s go to the tape:
I’m not exactly sure what Lizzy and Sabrina were expecting. Either way, they certainly paid a price for their indiscretion, as you can see from all the crying, drooling and convulsing.
While the pepper-eating experience wasn’t fun for the girls (and you can’t help but feel sorry for them at times), my favorite part comes in around the 3:20 mark—when the cameraman zooms in on Lizzy’s face, covered in a white powder, and asks, “got milk?”
LOOK AT LIZZY’S FACE! SHE LOOKS LIKE TYRONE BIGGUMS FROM “CHAPPELLE’S SHOW.”
