YouTubers Eat World's Hottest Chili Pepper (The Carolina Reaper), Their Reaction Goes Viral
"I thought I was going to die, I was throwing up blood."
People. People. People. What is it with people these days? People on the internet. People doing stupid stuff on the internet. People filming themselves doing stupid stuff, and putting evidence of their stupid stuff up on the internet for other people to see. Like that dude, we wrote about recently, who took a bath in 1,250 bottles of hot sauce. Remember that guy? *shakes head at the world* What a first-class idiot.
Continuing recent trends, in the world of food and nutrition, of people doing stupid stuff with spicy consumables are these two ladies here. One of the ladies is called Lizzy, the other is called Sabrina. What Lizzy and Sabrina decided to do, because there was presumably nothing worth watching on daytime TV, is eat a dried Carolina Reaper (officially the hottest pepper in the world) on camera. Sounds pretty stupid, right? Well, believe it or not, it gets even more stupid.
After eating the pepper, that clocks in at a face-melting 2.2 million scoville units (300 times hotter than Tabasco sauce), the spectacle descends into a complete and utter horror show. The Reaper's fire hits them in their mouths almost immediately, causing them both to cry out in distress.
Following unsuccessful attempts to stem the flames spreading rapidly across their tongues with bottles of water and slices of bread, the girl called Sabrina convinces herself she's going to die and has a full-on panic attack. Then Lizzie cries because she thinks Sabrina is dying, and the whole thing reaches peak levels of stupidity. At one point, an inhaler gets involved.
You want to feel sorry for them, but then you remember that the whole scenario is self inflicted and your sympathies just sort of stop dead in their tracks.
Of course, this isn't the first time someone has done something stupid with a spicy pepper and we doubt it'll be the last. Next week, someone will blatantly decide to stick the world's hottest chili up their bum. Why? For shits, giggles, and the YouTube viewing figures of course.
