Why someone would want to subject themselves to intentional pain is anyone’s guess, but that doesn’t make watching a guy almost die from consuming something potentially fatal any less entertaining. Enter the ‘World’s Spiciest Noodles.’
Case in point: YouTube’s Awesome Eats. In the video below, he goes balls out and orders what he claims are the spiciest noodles in the world from a restaurant dedicated to Indomie goreng. The noodle dish is something that translates to “death” on the restaurant’s make-shift Scoville chart; a dish embellished with 100 Birds Eye chilies, which are less hot than a habenero, but much spicier than a jalapeño.
Awesome Eats tries his best to keep it together while eating this hazard, enduring intense pain that seems to come in waves. Ultimately, he describes his experience as the “shittiest feeling in the world,” and says “this is the last time I’m eating spicy food for a stupid show like this.” Your move, Awesome Eats.
