Hot Ones Videos
Perhaps inspired by the allure of the popular web series “Hot Ones”, people all across the globe are filming their own challenges, and some of them are seriously over the top! While celebrities are signing on for their own turns in the hot seat, you hardly have to be famous to earn your five minutes of fame in a YouTube spicy food challenge. From spicy ramen noodles to spicy pepper challenges, it seems a growing population is definitely up for the challenge. While some challenges, such as the “Fire Noodle Challenge” are well documented with some basic rules and somewhat predictable outcomes, there are also Internet video challenges solely focused on an individual does of heat, including the “chili pepper challenge” and the “ghost pepper challenge”. There’s even been a hot pepper challenge aimed at raising awareness for ALS.
