Sean Evans and Chili Klaus Eat the Carolina Reaper, the World's Hottest Chili Pepper | Hot Ones

  • Published on Dec 3, 2015
  • In the first season of Hot Ones, host Sean Evans proved that there's no wing he can't handle. But the world of spicy foods doesn't end at Mad Dog 357 hot sauce. To train for Season 2 and ensure his invisibility on the Hot Ones stage, Sean met up with a true legend of the chili world-Denmark's ghost-pepper-popping Chili Klaus-to take on the hottest chili pepper known to man, the Carolina Reaper. Special thanks to "Smokin' Ed" Currie of PuckerButt Pepper Company in South Carolina for providing the heat.

      I've been growing reapers for 4 years now, I've eaten multiple pods in a single day. I make powder, jelly, sauce, and other things. And yes the worst part is the capsaicin leaving your body.

    This truly is one of the funniest and most sincere TVclip videos of all time. From the undecidedness at the beginning with some funny commentary in the middle, to the hurried but genuine display of friendship at the end. I laugh harder every time I watch. Thanks guy’s!!
