A Scout Master looking to raise money for scholarships did something either rather courageous or stupid. He ate 23 ghost peppers to help fundraising efforts.
No big deal, right? WRONG!
The most famous “Super Hot” due to the amount of press it has received in the past. It exploded in popularity on YouTube and other social sites where pepperheads eat whole Ghost Peppers as part of a challenge.
The Ghost Pepper was the first pepper to scientifically test over 1 million scovilles. Many mistakenly still believe it is the World’s Hottest but it has actually fallen to 7th on a list of the world’s hottest peppers.
With that being said, don’t be fooled by how low this is on the list as it can still bring a grown man to his knees.
As you can see in the video below, the Scout Master ate the entire jar of ghost peppers.
This video is safe yet painful to watch but you have to give the guy props because he really takes it like a champ.
He was said to have been sick for 24 hours afterwards, and it comes as no surprise because he’s lucky he didn’t need to be hospitalized.
This is something I would not recommend trying yourself.
