In preparation for his second season hosting the First We Feast web offering Hot Ones, Sean Evans has paired up with Danish mouth heat enthusiast Chili Klaus to take on the hottest peppers on the planet.
Yup, these two dudes willingly ate multiple Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper peppers. Personally, I'm not eating anything with the name "Reaper" in it, but that's just me.
Here’s how this culinary danger is described on Smokin’ Ed’s official website:
Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper® is a super hot pepper developed by Founder, President, Mad-Scientist & Chef Smokin’ Ed Currie in his Rock Hill, South Carolina greenhouse. Measuring over 1.5 million on the Scoville Heat Unit Scale, Smokin’ Ed’s Carolina Reaper® was awarded the Guinness World Record in November of 2013.
Despite their best efforts these guys get their asses kicked by the Carolina Reaper. How can this be enjoyable?
