Number 26: Raw Scotch Bonnet Pepper (a Vlog!)

18 Mar

I decided that for number 26, I would do the most awkward thing I have ever done: make a vlog.  I figured that when it comes to eating super hot peppers, my face is going to tell you more than my writing will.  So check out my video after the jump and watch me writhe in pain!  Woo!

THE VERDICT
In a strange, masochistic way, I was actually kind of disappointed by how quickly the spiciness passed. It was absolutely the hottest thing I have ever had, but within a minute or two, the worst was over and I could return to normal life. Lame.

    If Dan still had the long hair, most certainly he would have been fine. I ate some type of pepper in the Dominican Republic which made my ears rings. Was pretty damn hot. But I ate more. Love the vlog!

    “It’s organic…..this is organic” 😉 I love what Dan has to offer in this video! This was so funny and you are SO brave! You guys got through this pretty painlessly. 🙂 And Kath, generally I think we look nothing alike but I actually see myself in you while watching this! Perhaps we are sisters after all!!

      I loved Dan’s quote, too. This was terrific. Kudos, K!

    You two are really too cute for words. And also, thank you for showing me that it’s OK to use beer pint glasses as everyday glasses. We have an entire cabinet full of them [the AC/DC one included] that we use all the time for pretty much anything but beer usually.

    This video was great – especially your facial expressions upon eating the peppers and your pups sneezes! Loved it!

    Well done ballsy ones!

    Sigh. You are so beautiful.

    I can’t comment further without sounding like a dirty old man.

    🙂 I love the ad I got… “Bariatric Choice – for Weight Loss”…

    Ummmm… You are ADORABLE! Weird that I’ve “known you” for like 3 years now and this was the first time I’ve heard you talk! So Cute!!!

    This vlog was fantastic! You did way better than I would have. I usually have to talk myself into eating something that I don’t want to eat for like 20 minutes. And spicy stuff usually makes my eyes water. I don’t think I’ll be vlogging while eating peppers anytime soon.
