Besides watching cute cat videos online, I also love watching videos online of people eating extremely hot peppers. I find it hilarious. Is that weird? Anyways, Danish entertainer Claus Pilgaard, known as Chili Klaus, is famous for his chilli eating videos on YouTube. He has eaten some of the world’s strongest chillies with various Danish celebs. Last week Chili Klaus thought it would be rather fun to videotape 1000 people eating a ghost chili pepper. Check out the video below to see if he was right!
The ghost chili pepper’s official name is the bhut jolokia. It is cultivated in the Indian states of Assam, Nagaland and Manipur. In 2007, the chilli ghost pepper earned a spot in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s hottest chilli pepper. The pepper is rated at more than 1 million Scoville heat unites (SHUs). For comparison, the ghost chili is 401.5 times hotter than Tabasco sauce. That’s hot!!!
However, since 2012 the ghost pepper is no longer the hottest pepper in the world. It was superseded by the Trinidad moruga scorpion, which was dethroned in 2013 by the Carolina Reaper. It’s still pretty hot, though.
What’s the hottest pepper you have ever eaten? Let us know & leave a comment!
