Wayne Algenio ate 119 grams of Carolina Reaper peppers at the New York Hot Sauce Expo. I don’t know how much money his colon owes him, but it must be a lot for Wayne to put that sort of savage beating on it. Did his lower GI borrow money from him for its mom’s operation or something?
The 31 year old competitive eater and New Yorker downed the Reapers in 60 seconds, annihilating both the previous Guinness World Record and his taste buds at the same time. Just watch the video from ABC News. That, my friend, is the face of anguish.
It’s also the face of hard-fought victory. Congrats, Wayne. You’ve earned it. I hope there’s a big paycheck in it for you somewhere. You’ll need it for your digestive system’s mental therapist.
