For as long as I can remember, people test themselves by eating really hot peppers. The only different today is that these same idiots are now video tapping themselves. Sadly, all the videos follow the same plot line. They describe the intense hotness of the pepper. They eat the pepper. They swear. They cry. They plead. They drink water (another bad idea). Then they slowly, graudal come back to normal.
As stupid as this might all sound, we love to watch anyway. Lucky for us, Youtuber Lizzy Wurst join forces with her cute friend to eat the world’s hottest pepper, the Carolina Reaper, and the results are delightfully more than we expected.
To put things in perspective, your average Jalapeno Pepper fall between 5,000 to 10,000 scoville rating. Basic “Pepper Spray” carry a 2,000,000 scoville rating. The only thing hotter than a Carolina Reaper, which 2,200,000 scovilles, is Police Grade Pepper Spray, which comes in at whooping 5,300,000 scovilles!
Basically, this pepper is forged in the asshole of hell, and eating one falls in between the category of stupid and really fucking stupid. I know, I know… when has really-fucking-stupid ever stopped anybody.
Now that you understand how hot the Carolina Reaper is, let’s enjoy watching Lizzy and her friend Sabrina completely lose their shit and have a spice-induced meltdowns after eating the pepper.
Let’s recap. The girls started out lovely as ever, smiling to the camera, oblivious to the hell that is about to sweep through their digestive system.
A minute later, they’re in tears, because they willingly ingested the world’s hottest pepper.
Well, that was fun. Now, they have a story to tell the paramedics. Moral of the story: Whenever your so-called friend invite you over to eat a Carolina Reaper, start looking for a new friend!
