    Correct me if I'm wrong but it's just painful and doesn't cause permanent damage

    [–]hobbbes14 1665 points1666 points  (254 children)

    Steve-O did pour straight hot sauce into his eye when he did that little show with Gordon Ramsey. I don't think it does permanent damage.

    [–]monkey15162 2841 points2842 points  (219 children)

    Steve-O is an anamoly in human evolution

    [–]BigShoots 972 points973 points  (180 children)

    He also snorted lines of wasabi, that couldn't have tickled.

    [–]totesmcgotes31 535 points536 points  (104 children)

    Wasabi Snooters. Fucking classic

    [–]angrydeuce 309 points310 points  (91 children)

    Man the prank shit was definitely some of the best shit ever but tbh the grossout shit like that always made me want to puke. I dont remember what it was from but the bit where Steve-O was in a port-a-potty slingshot actually did make me puke. No bueno.

    Edit: God these responses are making it all come back to me in a big way gah they did some nasty shit.

    [–]totesmcgotes31 134 points135 points  (47 children)

    poo cocktail 2...the worst thing they ever did was the paper cut in the hotel. its been so long and it still makes me sick

    [–]nuke_the_admins 106 points107 points  (29 children)

    How about the shot of sweat from the dude they wrapped in plastic and had ride a bike?

    [–]String_709 29 points30 points  (5 children)

    When they were doing paper cuts between their toes? It still gives me the absolute shivers. Paper cuts on their tongue too IIRC....NOPE.

    [–]BavarianPanzerBallet 17 points18 points  (3 children)

    “The yellow ice cream cone” and the one where they drink the fat guys sweat was also really awful.

    [–]das0tter 34 points35 points  (0 children)

    The hardware store crapper (while not actually Steve O) was both hilarious and gross at the same time. I died laughing at the camera man rolling out of the van puking after the dude shit himself en route for attempt 1.

    [–]Hasselhoff265 124 points125 points  (48 children)

    He later said that it didn’t effect him much.

    He was snoring pounds of cocain back then and the wasabi was just a little flavour for his nose. He only thought that it’s embarrassing for him cause it made him puke.

    [–]regulatorDonCarl 73 points74 points  (11 children)

    Lol Steve-O puked like every episode

    [–]Exquisite_Bucket 44 points45 points  (5 children)

    The sound of him puking is saved in my mind after listening to it so many times

    [–]keyjunkrock 53 points54 points  (33 children)

    Ketamine. He did ridiculous amounts of it. It's a super strong pain killer.

    [–]keyjunkrock 36 points37 points  (0 children)

    The amount of ketamine he was on probably helped..

    [–]Pestidox 28 points29 points  (3 children)

    Steve-O does that regularly. It's a bit he does.

    [–]hobbbes14 23 points24 points  (2 children)

    Oh yeah, I knew that. I was just referring to his most recent pouring of the hot sauce into the eye.

    [–]FractalDactyL5 46 points47 points  (1 child)

    Well, Steve-O did it, so...must not do permanent damage.

    [–]asunshinefix 20 points21 points  (1 child)

    I accidentally splashed a substantial amount of cayenne powder straight into my eye once while making chili. No damage done but it sucked.

    [–]SmiTe1988 68 points69 points  (26 children)

    You're correct.

    Friend of mine did it with ghost peppers i gave him, with explicit instructions to touch nothing even after washing his hands. he thought he was going to go blind and all i could do was tell him to flush while i laughed my ass off.

    [–]vierolyn 41 points42 points  (17 children)

    Friend of mine did it with ghost peppers i gave him, with explicit instructions to touch nothing even after washing his hands

    I did buy some from the nice old lady in my local Asian food store. She warned me - a regular customer who she knew was accustomed to heat - "use gloves". I didn't listen of course.

    Personally I don't think flushing helps. Just keep the eye closed and wait it out. Never try to open your eye.

    [–]SmiTe1988 18 points19 points  (3 children)

    gloves is a pro tip!

    On your skin you can wash with vinegar, idk about putting vinegar in your eye tho. Soap and water does nothing for capsaicin...

    [–]Kalsifur 31 points32 points  (10 children)

    My husband grew some ghost peppers (bhut jolokias). For some reason I thought they would make a nice green chili sauce, so I started by grinding them in a blender (I planned to just use a little and cut it with weak pepper and other ingredients) but holy shit did I underestimate the power of the ground chilis. I opened the blender and literally gassed myself. Basically made pepper spray.

    [–]OthelloAoC 91 points92 points  (72 children)

    It depends what you do, enzymes from ghost peppers could potentially cause damage to the eyes.

    However some of this is misleading, the effects of the pepper doesnt last 6 hours and it's also not the hottest pepper in the world - it's the hottest natural occurring pepper, but there are hybrids that were created that are much higher in the scoville ranking.

    [–]DogParksAreForbidden 65 points66 points  (56 children)

    The quality of this video looks easy like it was from the 90s. Could've been the hottest at the time.

    [–]OrangeSimply 35 points36 points  (39 children)

    90s quality was VHS tape recordings of TV shows. This is just some 240p early 2000's quality video that's been compressed, and redownloaded and recompressed 20 times.

    [–]it_vexes_me_so 18 points19 points  (6 children)

    The best way to watch it is on a CRT monitor that weighs 45lbs and is 5 feet deep.

    [–]chooxy 18 points19 points  (0 children)

    Just want to point out that OP's title is wrong but the video is right because this was way back in 2007 which is (AFAIK) before any of the new hotter peppers were created.

    [–]8426578456985 17 points18 points  (6 children)

    Correct. Pepper spray, perhaps unsurprisingly, is also made from the same irritant.

    [–]The_Sleep_Walker 48 points49 points  (4 children)

    If it makes you feel better, that freaked me out too and I did an instant replay.

    He uses his left hand for the pepper and the right hand for the cup of milk. When he puts the milk down, he touches his eye with his right hand.

    [–]gambitz6685 20 points21 points  (3 children)

    Sorry, gotta make it worse again....

    He touched the first pepper with his right, grabbed milk with left, put pepper down, moved milk to right.

    [–]bad-goodguy 60 points61 points  (0 children)

    Got some tears

    [–]DannoHung 58 points59 points  (2 children)

    When you're talking about a fresh hot pepper a million scovilles or more, it doesn't super matter, because the capsaicin is going to get aerosolized into all your mucous membranes no matter what.

    You can smell those things and it feels like you took a bite of a less intense hot pepper.

    [–]XtaC23 13 points14 points  (1 child)

    Yeah, gotta wear a hazmat suit in the sauce warehouse because if you inhale that strong pepper powder, well it's a lot worse than pepper spray.

    [–]Kc1319310 39 points40 points  (30 children)

    I’ve had some 2 million+ Scoville hot sauces (which I’m sure is a cakewalk compared to what he just did) and you basically feel like you’re no longer in your body when you have a large quantity of something that hot. It’s kind of like life is on a 5 second delay and you don’t realize you just did something really stupid until it’s too late.

    [–]Diet_Clorox 40 points41 points  (17 children)

    A lot of superhots are kind of sweet, like a carrot taste, when you first bite into them, which lulls you into a false sense of security before your world crumbles around you.

    [–]jefferlewpew 894 points895 points  (30 children)

    I hope he got promoted for how professional he stayed through that, I would've been yelling for more milk

    [–]murphinski 295 points296 points  (2 children)


    [–]pacman529 140 points141 points  (15 children)

    Well keep in mind that we saw 60 seconds of an experience that can last 6 hours. But at least he kept his composure while they were still filming.

    [–]AnalStaircase33 70 points71 points  (6 children)

    60 seconds is honestly just the ramp up stage of these peppers. It gets intense.

    [–]byebyebadme 32 points33 points  (4 children)

    I second this. The first 60 seconds after a Carolina reaper is habanero level. The following twenty minutes are spent thrashing about like a fish out of water. At least, in my experience that is

    [–]ActualWhiterabbit 53 points54 points  (6 children)

    When i first ate a Carolina Reaper it felt like i was a cartoon. I could feel the peppers progress through my body and if i was a cartoon there would be a red line from my mouth to my tummy to my butt's hole. It was just leaving a burning trail

    [–]WholeEnvironment6 144 points145 points  (39 children)

    I once ordered some Carolina reaper seeds. When they came in I set them all up on a damp paper towel to germinate, then went about my day. At some point I wiped my eye, and within seconds I realized the mistake I had made. Of course the seeds are super hot too!

    In the end it was really bad for about 2 minutes, but wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

    [–]Caelorum 51 points52 points  (22 children)

    I cut a few of those once and then washed my hands at least 6 times in an hour and it still burned like hell when I picked my nose...

    [–]Pepper9187 114 points115 points  (9 children)

    oh shit i don't know how many times i've done that dumb move, i live in a country where they really like chilly and from time to time you'd wipe your eye and be like oooooh f**k what did i just do. Honey are you allright ? SHUT UP IM FINE

    [–]pupiLSDilated 71 points72 points  (1 child)

    I live in a country where we really like warm.

    [–]garlicdeath 28 points29 points  (3 children)

    I did that in middle school. Was watching Dancing with Wolves (had a sub in that class for a few days) and was chomping on a habanero. Bangs were in my eyes and wiped them out of the way and my eyes immediately started burning.

    Half the class thought I was crying because of the buffalo hunt scene. Took a while to live that one down.

    Last October I was at a wedding and some guests on the other side brought ghost peppers. My brother and I thought it was a good idea to eat a whole one, each, to the stem. We did not enjoy the rest of the reception.

    Why did they bring ghost peppers to a wedding reception, you might ask? It was to see idiots like me try them and regret it. They succeeded.

    [–]Fuhgly 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    First thing the dude said was it's the hottest chili pepper in the world.

    Then the reporter was like, "..huh" crunch "what does that mean?"

    [–]lilbelleandsebastian 60 points61 points  (6 children)

    this is rob stone, he's a comedic commentator who has done a million different sports and bizarre casts in his career. he's very bright, he knows the pepper is hot lol

    I've had a Carolina Reaper and what other commentators are saying is right. After the initial bite it doesn't feel that hot, I actually did what he did and finished it immediately after the first bite out of confusion, but it just takes a second before it starts blasting.

    Then you die for the rest of the day

    [–]GleepGloopGlop 85 points86 points  (53 children)

    How was toilet time next day?

    [–]crusty_cum-sock 300 points301 points  (47 children)

    I’ve had Carolina Reapers before and it was like I gave birth to the Sun out of my ass the next day. I swear I heard a sizzle when my shit hit the water. It was fucking horrible.

    Carolina Reapers are certainly hot as fuck, but the mouth pain doesn’t compare to the gut pain (for me, I know these things are different for different people). They do taste surprisingly good to me though.

    [–]CantHitachiSpot 72 points73 points  (7 children)

    For me it was like getting kicked by a horse, almost as bad as just before I got my appendix removed. The mouth pain is a pleasant distraction.

    [–]Alphaw0p 25 points26 points  (4 children)

    Interesting — I had a friend who ate a carolina reaper, and the next day, his appendix burst- wonder if there’s a link

    [–]the_dayman 22 points23 points  (7 children)

    I wish I could eat more hot stuff, because I actually love the heat in my mouth... but since I've hit my 30s it's gotten to the point where my stomach just starts getting daggers stabbed into it hours later so it's never worth it.

    [–]Legendary_Bibo 15 points16 points  (9 children)

    I have a hot sauce made from Carolina Reapers (it's called The End from Pepper Palace) and one little drop is unpleasant.

    [–]sambes06 261 points262 points  (36 children)

    Some of these really hot peppers slowly build. The first few seconds can be fruity and almost sweet. I think the amount of capsaicin just bottlenecks at the receptors in the brain.

      That's especially one of the characteristics of this pepper, that the heat doesn't really kick in at first.

      [–]plax22 72 points73 points  (4 children)

      I agree with both of you, but that’s definitely not why he took a second bite. That was 100% out of shock. He was already feeling the heat, and in shock, while on camera, so he made a bad snap decision to respond to his brain saying “do something”.

      [–]Mydogatemyexcuse 33 points34 points  (3 children)

      [–]ILoveWildlife 63 points64 points  (1 child)

      a lot of small towns in the midwest will claim to have the "world's best" ____ and it fucking sucks so it's no wonder he'd take that "world's hottest" to mean "bitch pepper"

      [–]thugs___bunny 504 points505 points  (80 children)

      Irresponsible in my opinion to give that to someone just for shit and giggles when you know clearly he has no clue what it is.

      Edit: changed my opinion. Reporter dumb, farmer good.

      [–]Zarrakh 777 points778 points  (61 children)

      The farmer simply held up the pepper, the reporter grabbed it from the farmer’s hand a took a bite. Watch it again and see the look of surprise on the farmer’s face when they guy grabs it from his hand.

      [–]sucks2bdoxxed 572 points573 points  (16 children)

      [–]thugs___bunny 69 points70 points  (26 children)

      Oh shit, I didn‘t realize he just handed it to him to look at it. Of course it‘s not the farmer‘s fault then, you would expect a reporter to know what the interview is about

      [–]goddamnimtrash 89 points90 points  (23 children)

      I'm pretty sure the reporter just acted on autopilot, like his brain automatically went "food in hand -> eat" I don't think he'll make that mistake again lol

      [–]December1220182 34 points35 points  (10 children)

      It was a funny bit. He got a little more than he was asking for, but I bet it’s a happy memory when he thinks back on it.

      [–]ZippoInk 25 points26 points  (6 children)

      The fact they had a little Dixie cup of milk ready for him makes me think it was planned, but maybe he was supposed to try a different pepper.

      [–]dendritedysfunctions 26 points27 points  (1 child)

      Definitely my favorite part. He makes the shocked Pikachu face, shakes his head, and grabs a thimble of milk.

      He says it's the world's hottest pepper while he picks it up and the guy chomped into it. 100% on the reporter

      [–]BurntPoptart 84 points85 points  (4 children)

      Maybe the reporter shouldn't go around putting things in his mouth like a fucking toddler lol

      [–]cybertough 261 points262 points  (14 children)

      I love how he’s told that it was hot and he still freakin ate it.

      [–]palindromic 58 points59 points  (1 child)

      The pepper presenters eyebrows when he goes for the bite immediately tells a great story .. he’s all “ohhh rillly???”

      [–]sirnatejack 33 points34 points  (2 children)

      “This is the worlds hottest pepper” Immediately takes a bite* tells him it’s gonna last six hours “That’s some information I could have used a little bit ago”

      Well maybe if you would’ve waited five seconds like Jesus fuck

      [–]BailsonJr 9 points10 points  (1 child)

      it also seems like "world's hottest pepper" would be useful information but he seemed to ignore that...

      [–]redditpulledmebackin 740 points741 points  (36 children)

      Reminds me of the time my uncle at a pepper right off the bush, he ran home to the garden hose but the water only made it worse. I called him a chicken and bit one myself, only to have the same “that was a mistake wasn’t it?” reaction.

        Eating the hot pepper wasn't the dumbest thing this guy's ever done, rubbing his eye with his thumb was. He's just lucky he didn't have capsaicin on his fingers.

        Oh no. It’s not going to be the next day. It’s going to be within the next hour. My buddies and I stupidly once at ghost chili’s at lunch in high school. Within 30 minutes, we were all in the nurses office feeling like we swallowed lava knives. Within 60 minutes, we were shitting our brains out. The body just realizes there is something so dangerous that it just forces whatever it can out if the body. Not to sound gross, but I was basically just shitting water and bile for an hour and a half straight. The body was just taking whatever liquid it had to force out all the spice.

        I wish. This was 9 or 10 years ago. I don’t even know if any of us had phones capable of taking decent pictures.

        [–]MrSteveWilkos 31 points32 points  (25 children)

        Yeah, I love really spicy food, and there's just not better way to clean out your system then to eat some super hot wings or curry. It's almost magic how quickly your body can produce liquid lava. I've seen it happen within like 15-20 minutes. Insane.

        [–]Max-b 14 points15 points  (7 children)

        I guess I'm lucky that spicy food has never made my poops painful or liquid or anything

        I honestly thought people were just being hyperbolic when talking about their shits after eating spicy food, but I guess not

        My Thai friend brought in authentic Thai chili peppers to school in 7th grade and I ate the whole thing, the heat was pretty manageable. What wasn't was me touching my eye and then blindly walking down empty hallways hoping someone could lead me to the nurse lol

        [–]eggarino 311 points312 points  (6 children)

        The head whip when he hears how long that heat lasts is gold. Swivel his neck off his shoulders

        [–]xpmnt626 68 points69 points  (1 child)

        “Seriously?” He died all over again at that moment.

        TIL Michael Scott was based on a real person

        [–]Morningwood645 54 points55 points  (4 children)

        that scene when he’s on the phone with Wallace and keeps coughing up the tiramisu dust and then going back for more just to cough again

        [–]Skeeedo 11 points12 points  (0 children)

        That scene is so well acted lol

        [–]AnalystOfData 89 points90 points  (0 children)

        I was just about to post this then I ran into your comment. The "seriously" part is what got me.

        [–]Go_Mets 26 points27 points  (0 children)

        Holy shit this is literally something he’d do, down to the mannerisms

        [–]nativeofvenus 10 points11 points  (0 children)

        Lmao when he said “got some tears” it sounded exactly like Michael Scott

        Exactly. That was him just being dumb. No accident there.

        [–]GreatFandango 52 points53 points  (9 children)

        Seems like he is handling it pretty well so far..

        [–]Ahmad- 32 points33 points  (1 child)

        Agreed, he took it like a champ imo

        [–]BloodCrazeHunter 22 points23 points  (0 children)

        In my experience Ghost Peppers tend to build up over time. They get worse before they get better. That said, this guy is showing a miraculous level of composure.

        [–]mtdunca 88 points89 points  (17 children)

        Just wait till he feels that heat on the toilet.

        [–]fdubzou 33 points34 points  (2 children)

        Lol at the old dude’s face as soon as the reporter bites into the pepper

        [–]D_Metal 152 points153 points  (22 children)

        What is that water cup? A cup for ants? It's not going to help him.

        [–]Juddston 32 points33 points  (2 children)

        Dude needs to park himself right under the udder.

        [–]FireyBoi190 60 points61 points  (11 children)

        I think its milk, which does help

        [–]D_Metal 52 points53 points  (8 children)

        Even if it is, that small amount of milk would not help. Now if there is more milk there, he will have to keep refilling that small cup over and over again for it to really help.

        [–]DarthMimikyu 46 points47 points  (0 children)

        I don't think they expected him to eat the hottest pepper there. Maybe the milder ones.

        [–]FireyBoi190 19 points20 points  (1 child)

        True. But hey, its better than water.

        [–]disaster357 21 points22 points  (2 children)

        His butthole looked at at him like, "really dude?"

        "That lasts 6 hours in your mouth" That's what she said

        chomp “what does that mean”

        Face palm.

        [–]what_is_the_deal_ 213 points214 points  (177 children)

        Just 1,000,000 Scoville Heat Units? That’s barely in the top 10. I believe the Carolina Reaper at 2.2 million Scoville is the hottest.

        Edit: there are 2 hotter peppers now. Dragon’s Breath and Pepper X

        [–]Gravy_Vampire 254 points255 points  (53 children)

        The video looks really old, it could have been the hottest at the time

        [–]what_is_the_deal_ 156 points157 points  (50 children)

        When the video was taken, it probably was. In the last 20 years, there has been a race to create the world’s hottest pepper. Before 1990, there were only 2 peppers above 350,000 Scoville.

        [–]bluedahlia82 78 points79 points  (46 children)

        In the last 20 years, there has been a race to create the world’s hottest pepper.

        Why? Are there any uses or it's just a crazy competition?

        [–]dino-dic-hella-thicc 209 points210 points  (21 children)

        My theory is that Big Milk produces these super peppers in order to increase the demand for whole milk

        [–]Phirez 51 points52 points  (14 children)

        Shame that Big Milk hasn’t kept up in this arms race to produce a milkier milk.

        [–]Gravy_Vampire 26 points27 points  (0 children)

        You can find some milkier options out there if you know where to look. Who’s your milk guy? You may need to upgrade.

        [–]what_is_the_deal_ 25 points26 points  (0 children)

        Lol needs to be posted to a conspiracy theory subreddit

        [–]Huntred 48 points49 points  (3 children)

        Like with most other things, the internet happened.

        Time was you could do a thing in your hamlet/town/city and that would be about it - you’ve reached the peak. You really had no reliable way of knowing what else was going on outside of your bubble.

        Now with the internet, everyone in the world can not only hear about such-and-such pepper (or whatever) from somewhere else, but they can try to one-up each other to eat it by growing or ordering it. Growing peppers? People can learn all kinds of methods and species and order seeds and whatnot from the few people who have the information and resources. Eating peppers? People can watch Hot Ones on Tuesday, say “Hold my milk!” to their friends, and Amazon the entire sauce selection to their home by Friday. A sauce selection, it should be said, that can now exist because people from all over the world can now find and order enough product to make it worthwhile for a producer to make the stuff.

        [–]Gravy_Vampire 12 points13 points  (0 children)

        I was not expecting to come across such a fantastic explanation

        [–]gorphus22 27 points28 points  (26 children)

        Officially the Reaper is the hottest. There are many hotter, but have not been through the lab certification process. Have not tried Pepper X or Dragons Breath yet, but I've had some 7 Pot Primos that were WAY hotter than any Reaper I've had.

        [–]topcheesehead 8 points9 points  (3 children)

        Came here to say that too. Every few years a new pepper is cross bred to a new heat level.

        At one point the ghost pepper was king. Now its the reaper.

        Also 6 hours is an overstatement. I grew and ate these peppers. 1 hour is more accurate.

        [–]SethRogen-Not 18 points19 points  (15 children)

        I grow Carolina Reapers in my back yard. I smoke them, dry them, and grind them into powder. I like really spicy food and the powder turns out awesome with the smoke, but I can only add the tiniest bit to a slice of pizza. Very easy to overdo it. A little spice jar lasts me a whole year.

        [–]ThatDanMan 32 points33 points  (0 children)

        "You should have told me how long it would last before you told me what it was"

        [–]JimMutter 112 points113 points  (46 children)

        Have eaten ghost peppers in the past, as I'm sure lots of others have, as well. This idea that it last 6 hours is silly.

        [–]HarryDepova 29 points30 points  (22 children)

        The heat isn't going to last hours. Doesn't really matter who you are. This guy is exaggerating. It will mess with your insides though. Make you feel a little sick the rest of the day.

        [–]Killtrend 17 points18 points  (14 children)

        This. 10 minutes to 20? Maybe 30 if you’ve got remnants in your teeth or something. I’m big into the hot sauce world right now and I’ve tried damn near everything they sell that’s not totally unsubstantiated or meme worthy (like the toe of satan lollipop or whatever it’s called.)

        I’ve had the hottest thing you can buy, at least what the internet agrees is the hottest, Plutonium “sauce” at 9 million scoville. It came as a solid you had to melt and we had a quarter teaspoon each between about 7 people which was dumb because it normally gets tried with a toothpick - it was bad. I also shared a full tube of terror with someone that claims to clock in at 13 million scoville via dust/crystals. The tube felt much hotter, but the plutonium just wouldn’t stop and made me physically sick.

        Both lasted roughly... 15 min? It’s a long burn.

        I have a high tolerance. If your tolerance is shit, don’t try these. In my house now I’ve got some Last Dab (~2 million) and The End(6 million). That’s about as hot as I get. A few drops of The End in a big pot of food or a few dabs of Last Dab on a meal is where I like to sit.

        [–]Topbananapants 49 points50 points  (8 children)

        The guy said that in some people it could, but it just depends on the person.

        [–]GeraldBWilsonJr 11 points12 points  (1 child)

        I don't think that was "accidentally"
