Carolina reaper chilli pepper eating record

A Canadian man with a love for spicy food broke a Guinness World Record by eating three Carolina reaper chilli peppers - the hottest chilli peppers in the world - in under 10 seconds.

Guinness shared video of Mike Jack downing the three peppers in 9.72 seconds during his attempt in London, Ontario.

The record-keeping organization said the rules required each pepper to weigh at least 0.18 ounces. Jack also had to provide a certificate verifying the chilli peppers he ate during the attempt were in fact Carolina reapers.
