Bhut jolokias, a.k.a. ghost chilis, are one of the hottest peppers on the planet. I can vouch for that first-hand. But what this dude did with those fiery infernos on a stem was absolutely nuts.
YouTuber Kevin “L.A. Beast” Strahle, is exactly that, a beast. Not only did he eat a boatload of ghost peppers, but he smashed the previous Guinness World Record by nearly doubling it up.
The previous record was 66 grams, but apparently that wasn’t quite enough torture for this fella. He upped the ante and scarfed down just shy of a whopping 122 grams.
While he did beat the record, he didn’t do so without a bit of anguish. He said he’s able to get through the torture by pretending he’s on the beach and drinking beers. I’m not quite sure that would work for me, but maybe it’s because I’m not a glutton for punishment.
After this, one thing is certain: Strahle has definitely earned his nickname of L.A. Beast, because he went straight beastmode on these peppers.
