The marquee is full ready for the Chilli Eating Contest

 A big crowd packed the marquee at the Fiery Foods UK Chilli Festival for the first of the weekends Chilli Eating Contests, each entrant is presented with a garland of chillies, and is led to a seat on the stage, in front of them is a small black bucket and a cold glass of beer. 

To start they all looked as cool as possible, just like they did this everyday just for fun. The audience knows they are watching the fool hardy, who may smile and grin in the vain hoping this is not really going to hurt that much.

Ready to start eating

The contest is simple, they are each handed a chilli, they are mild to start with, they are given time to eat this and hold up the stalk, each round the chillies get progressively hotter, the first 5 are OK, but after that the extreme and super hots start to weed out the weak, leaving just the insane to be the last man/woman standing.

If they touch the beer of do not eat one of the chillies they are out, the event takes about 30-50 minutes, the longer it takes the more the pain, it is not always the heat in the mouth that finishes you off, but your stomach rebels at such a rich capsiacin diet (best not to miss the bucket).

The Winner - Reuben

An if you do get near the end, we recommend you don’t try to hold it all down, it is not going to give to a restful night, or a very pleasant morning, the only way is to vomit it all up as soon as you can. Its unpleasant at the time, but at least then it is over for another day.

And on this the first day of the competition, Reuben who looked like he was going out much earlier managed to keep it all going and win, our congratulations to Reuben, we would love to hear from him to know how he felt afterwards.

There are a number of Chilli Eating Competitions at chilli Festivals around the UK, but this has to be one of the toughest.
