“That has to be by far the spiciest thing I’ve ever had, the one chip challenge.”

What’s the spiciest food you’ve ever tried? Oh, so I got a story about this. I was working in Palo Alto, California for Ford Motor, and at our Halloween party someone brought these one chip challenge things and I tried it when I was later at home, but basically it’s a one — one chip coated in like pepper seasoning. Ghost pepper, Carolina Reaper, et cetera. And you’re supposed to like just eat it and film it. I didn’t film it, kind of — maybe I should’ve, but it was super hot and basically, I ate it all in, like, one bite. It was like the size of a Doritos chip, maybe a little bigger, and it was — I instantly regretted it. I was like, “Oh no,” ’cause I didn’t have any milk, I don’t think. I don’t even — I didn’t have any like, bananas. I might’ve had like one slice of bread, I don’t know, I don’t think I had a lot of bread. All I had was like some beer, some peanut butter, or maybe some jelly, I don’t know. I was — I just remember feeling like “Oh no. Oh no. Oh no.” Luckily, the pain subsided not long after but I thought my lips like looked sort of different somehow. Like there was like a ring around the outside or maybe it was just my perception but it looked slightly different color and I don’t know if I’d do it again, but that has to be by far the spiciest thing I’ve ever had, the one chip challenge.
