One of my favorite shows of late is Man vs. Food on the Travel Channel. Host Adam Richman travels all over the country to take on various food challenges. Of all the ones we’ve seen, my favorite challenges are those that involve having to eat incredibly hot foods. Most of these challenges involve habanero peppers–devilish little orange fireballs (the sauce on my atomic wings is habanero-based).
From watching the show, I have come to know of an even more fierce and vicious pepper, one that caused Adam to throw in the towel on the “Fire-in-your-hole challenge”–the so-called “ghost chili,” or Bhut Jolokia. All reports are that this is one hellish pepper, far worse than the wretched habanero. I would like to try one someday; well, actually just something with the sauce on it would be enough. But, after watching this video, I don’t know that I’m up to it. While I take no pleasure in the pain and misery of others, self-inflicted misery such as is in this video is often hilarious! I laughed so hard my stomach was sore! Enjoy!
