Woot! Woot! It is now Day 5 of the Daily Steemit Selfie Challenge!

Our registered players are competing against each other in an elimination endurance contest where their selfies must be posted on a daily basis and must meet the theme qualifications. Not only must they post their qualifying selfies prior to the deadline to avoid elimination, they are also competing against one another for bonus points. In each round, I will reward at least two selfies with bonus points.

Also, starting tomorrow, I will be rewarding one player each day with a "quick draw" bonus point for being the first to reply with a qualifying selfie each day.


Now Day 4 was a creative one because the theme was reflections. A lot of creative entries came in, and these are the ones that stuck out from the crowd and earned a bonus point!







As always, this is to the best of my knowledge. If you believe that you replied to the Day 4 post with a qualifying entry prior to 11:25 am (CST) today, then let me know. Perhaps I did miss something. As far as I know, though, these players have been eliminated.



For Round 5, all you have to do is take a selfie with some food in the photo. The goal is to have real food that you can actually eat, so a giant plastic hotdog would not work.


To qualify, you must have real food in the selfie with you. I chose to use a hot pepper, and lit it on fire for added hotness. That was just what I chose to do, it is not required.

It is pretty hard to take photos yourself when your hand and mustache are burning, so you might want to try a different approach. On the flip side, if these hot pepper selfies would have been in focus and less grainy, I think that they might have been really good!

Since the goal is to have people just compete on a daily basis, and since camera timers and other things come into play, as long as a new, original entry is made every day, players will not be eliminated. I will no longer be asking about who took the photo or other such things.

I am going to take a little time off until tomorrow night, so you'll get some extra time this round. Reply to this post with your qualifying selfie by 7:00 pm (CST) on Saturday to avoid elimination. As always, no entry post is required, but you are free to make a post featuring your entry if you want to. By entering this contest you are giving me full permission to use your entries in future contest posts. Thanks and have fun!


The current prize pool is 125 SBD, not including Bonus Points. It will continue to grow on a daily basis! That means that the longer you hang in there, the larger it gets!

If you want to know more about those bonus points, I share about them soon. Just know that you really want them! Trust me.

Until next time…

Trying to up my game to appease papa-pepper (pun totally intended!)

Well then.....shouldn't it be papa-peaper? ;-)

Lol! Wise guy!!🤣🤣

This man is known as "Two Gun Bandito" or AKA Bluelightbandit.
He's wanted on several felonies and should be considered armed and dangerous! Please do not approach! If spotted, contact your local law enforcement office or dial 1-888-Papa-Pepper-Challenge. Here are the most recent photos taken from our surveillance cameras.

Regardless if I win or not, I'm having a blast with this and I hope everyone else is having as much fun as I am!

This is my entry post.
@bollutech with fresh hot black pepper.

I'd the chance to put some of this black pepper together to form something that looks like @papa-pepper 's user.
I hope its acceptable. Thanks

My first time entering ! Upped and resteemed ! Hopefully I can jump in now and enter everyday @papa-pepper ! 📷😂🍪😋🍪
"Slacking On The Job !" In my car dunking chocolate chip cookies in hot tea , while blogging on Steemit of course !! Haha !🍪😋😂

For now I think you can't entering you need to wait till next contest :( we have 5th day :))

Hehehe just imagine if so, this competition would never end, Literally. Cheer$:)

hope you will be in next compettition :))

I don't know which came first, but I know which one I will eat first!

Fishy the philosophical, thats a pretty bird!

Thank you! Her daddy is a Cornish. Mom could be many things, but I think Aracauna


oh no!! It got me. It seemed so nice and tame earlier :(


In case you don't know this wild and crazy beast - it is a buddha's hand also known as citron. It is in the citrus family but doesn't have juice. You eat the peel as lemon zest or candy it for fruit cake and cookies, they make a great syrup and more...


I haven't found seeds in it yet!! And we are in a citrus quarantine zone - can't even get scion wood to you :(

oh my...I do love a good seed smuggling challenge, but maybe it would be much easier to get them from somewhere in asia

Thanks for revealing to me this new plant/creature!

You are so welcome. I am totally up for doing something with seeds - but a smuggled scion has brought the Florida citrus industry to its knees and the same kind of disease is spreading in California now due to a smuggled scion somebody gave out at a swap. It started in LA and is impacting much of Southern California now. We are not even supposed to move citrus leaves and branches from our own front yard to the back yard.
If stuff like that goes on, I do respect the prevention. I would like to keep all my citrus alive and not being subject to madatory spraying....

Wow! Never seen like that before. I thought its some sea creature lol. ❤

It does look like a sea creature!!! Smells much better, though!!

looks like a land octopus. Interesting looking plant.

Yes. Love it!! Land octopus!!! :)

The first photo deserves a bonus point. I'll be rooting for you!

Thank you so much!! :)

Hello @Papa-Pepper. This is my Entry #5. I don't know what happen to me. My head they have a Red and Green Pepper and my ears have a Red Chili and I'm Eating some Oranges! hahahha!!! 😂😂😍😍😍😇😇😇



You have a tray! Mr Stevens would be proud of you! (on the very slim chance you are wondering Whisky Tango Foxtrot...Eddie Izzard, the Death Star Canteen!)

after winning a bonus point I was really stoked but we have to keep up the momentum and it was really hard... I was faced with a dilemma and could not focus (read about it here :
and you can see why:

I've got three home grown fruits for you all - cement grown papayas, still on the tree, and an avacado and a tomatillo from the homestead.

sized daily selfie day five three home grown fruits.jpg

The tree on the left is castor, poisonous - not food! Squeeze the oil from the seeds and it is consumed as a purgative, although mostly for farm animals.

More fruits of our farm!

Edit: I'll be taking some time off until tomorrow night, so the next post will come up about 7pm (CST) on Saturday night. Thanks!

Ok, have a nice break. God bless!!

Thank you!! :)

This is what happens when a three year old meets a pear. Nom, nom, nom!

This was a fun visit from my godson and his kid brother. Now I'm exhausted.

I think it's time for a nap.

A simple lunch: fresh goat cheese on sourdough bread with a bowl of soup (not pictured).

Specially for you @papa-pepper:


I had to be very careful because they are soft, heavy and breakable but they are very delicious and healthy 😊.
I just realize im too late 😔

I had to keep it healthy. Yogurt and fruit, yum.

Thanks for your post on how to take the perfect selfie smile papa!

I'm glad you gave us an extra day. Today is my oldest son's Birthday.
Happy 12th Derp Day!
derp day.jpg

Just in time!

Here i am enjoying some Somerset Truffle Brie on homemade Sundried tomato and olive bread. Both birthday treats from a beloved friend 😊

Thanks papa-pepper!

I have decided to go crazy







Here you go @papa-pepper. This is my last minute entry for this round. I decided to go all out and include

  1. A plant (wild lettuce I think, also food)
  2. An Animal (our kitten Spot)
  3. Fire (the candle)
  4. A reflection (the mirror)
  5. Food (a tomato from our garden)

Just in time!

Pepper-on-knee (but sadly, no pizza)...

I'm smirking because you shouldn't laugh at your own puns. Or any puns, for that matter. So I'm told...

@splendorhub selfie food.jpg
Here's my selfie ...this is a chocolate chip cookie cup with milk in it..super delicious !!! Happy happy happy me!

Girls + Chocolate = True Love

Haha oh, my this made me laugh while I was taking it. Good cake though.

You are love!

This challenge is bananas. Yes, I'm going to eat all of them.

I love me some rice cakes. ^_^

A whole head of celery juiced all by itself, first thing in the morning can increase hydrochloric acid helping digestion and tooth health. It's also full of mineral salts which benefit each organ, is highly alkaline, reduces joint pain and inflammation and tastes pretty damn good.

Hurried to get a quick entry in!

(play and sing the Gwen Stefani song as you look!)

Homemade burrito. Taste test:

Verdict: STILL better than Taco Bell!

The last piece of bread after supper :)

I gotta be quick , so here is mine :


North Indian Food i am eating :



One question, is it neccesary to have food inside your mouth? Or just in the selfie?

In the instructions is says "To qualify, you must have real food in the selfie with you". i do not think it needs to be in your mouth.

Yeah i just wanted to confirm, thanks for your input friend :)

Sure, anytime.

Just a selfie with some actual food in the picture.

Edit: I'll be taking some time off until tomorrow night, so the next post will come up about 7pm (CST) on Saturday night. Thanks!
