LAST CALL - PAPA-PEPPERS SUPER-HOT PEPPER CHALLENGE - Now with 4X the PAYOUT!!!

Could you win some steem just by eating? Perhaps, but it is not that simple.

By now, many of you have probably at least seen some of the video entries for my #hotpepperchallenge that I put out some time ago. We have had some excellent entries, but I'm giving everyone one last chance to be foolish enough to enter before I crown a winner.

I'm quadrupling the Prize Payout up to 20 STEEM and giving all steemians one last opportunity to participate.

WHY SUCH A CHALLENGE?

The purpose of this challenge is to get us interacting on a whole new level, and I think it is working. I've ran a few contests in my time here and have given away many free seeds to other steemians, and the whole purpose of these things is to build up our community and encourage interaction on another level.

Plus, it's a great chance for me to share some of the incredible harvest from my garden!

Here are the entries so far:

@anotherjoe

@anotherjoe was the first entrant, and he started off by eating a Ghost pepper cross. Post link here.

Once he saw some of the other entries pour in, he also entered this video where he eats a whole Ghost pepper. Post link here.

@gardenofeden

Some of the Eden Knights stepped up to enter the challenge too. Post link here.

They "enjoyed" some of the Ghost cross peppers, and got some points for group effort.

@matthewtiii

This is where the contest got stepped up another notch. @matthewtiii ate a Ghost cross, then a Ghost, and finally the Carolina Reaper! He posted a total of 5 videos, I have only included the Carolina Reaper one here. To check out all the videos from him, check the post linked here.

Not only did he eat all three kinds of peppers, the post paid out at an incredible $224.10 so far, with the next payout coming in 4 days.

@pulpably

@pulpably joined in and ate a Ghost pepper for her entry. Post link here. If you like her video, please upvote her original post, because it only got 2 cents originally and still has 5 days until the final payout.

@merej99

In the same foolish style as @matthewtiii, @merej99 decided to eat three peppers, the Ghost, Chocolate Ghost, and Carolina Reaper. She did quite well, and even got a first payout of $87.38 for the post. Post link here.

The official rules are as follows:

  • Direct message me your valid US shipping address in https://steemit.chat - I'm papa-pepper there as well. (Due to various import and customs laws, I am currently only shipping inside the US.)
  • I will ship you some Ghost cross, Ghost, Chocolate Ghost, and Carolina Reaper peppers.
  • Once you get your peppers, pick you poison... er, I mean pepper and record yourself eating it.
  • Once the pepper is eaten, keep recording for an additional 2 minutes for maximum effect.
  • Include your video in a post and tag it in #hotpepperchallenge and whatever other tags you feel may be appropriate. (i.e. "stupid", "humor", "foolish", etc.)
  • Once all the entries are in, I'll do an official Winners Announcement and reward the winner with 20 STEEM.
  • By submitting an entry you are giving me permission to use that entry in posts like this one, and the Winners Announcement.

My Official Super-Hot Pepper Challenge Post is Linked Here

Please contact me within the next week if you are interested, as the window of opportunity to be included in this contest is closing.

HERE TO BRING YOU SOME FURTHER THOUGHT ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT TO ENTER IS @matthewtiii:

The video is hilarious, but to some it up, he says, "Don't eat this pepper. Milk doesn't help. Ice cream doesn't help. It's burning my ear canal. Don't eat the pepper man. Thanks @papa-pepper. Don't eat that pepper!"

The choice is yours of course, and you may want to consider that perhaps @matthewtiii was just using that last video as a clever ploy to potentially eliminate any further competition.

As I said when I first posted the contest idea, "Are you foolish enough to do something dumb for a chance to win STEEM? If so, you’re just the person that I’m looking for."


REMEMBER, PEPPERS AREN'T JUST HOT - THEY MAKE YOU FEEL GOOD.

I'm from texas. I won't take that challenge. I live too close to the border to know that those peppers are no joke! I salute these brave souls - about to watch these vids. thanks @papa-pepper!

·

I can ship to Texas....

In case you change your mind... plus, some people have even tried taking bong hits of Carolina Reaper.

@matthewtiii did a post and linked a video of that a while back.

·
·

Hahaha, that might be a challenge I'm up for!

·
·
·

Maybe I could start another challenge!

Bravo! friend @ potato-pepper great idea, I hope many people concursen, I would do it but I live in the southernmost country in the world Argentina Corrientes, I am a faithful follower of his notes, I really like what you do, I recuero a post he made on apple trees and a craft of a fish for the ticket gate, I do not take you more precious time, happiness and success in this competition

·

Thanks so much @jlufer.

It has been exciting so far, so we will see who else joins in.

Listen to @matthewtiii - Don't eat those peppers, man!
I may have flushed out the old bubblegum I ingested in the first grade after that challenge. Ice cream did help the burn...but it curdled with the Carolina Reaper and the belches were like eating them a second time with a sour milk chaser. Yummm.....
Yeah - I'm trying to get rid of the competition. LOL
On the flip side - I've been craving peppers with every meal now. ha!

·

Wow, that is such a touching story.

It blesses my heart to know that I could be used in such an important way in your life @merej99.

That'll show that gum!

·
·

I waited 40 years for it! A.B.C. gum anyone? It's vintage!

·
·
·

Do you want me to call the antique roadshow?

omg finally my freakish esophagus will pay off! I must remember to message you. :D !!!!!

·

Get in on the action !

·

Did you still want in?

I'm shipping this week?

My ghost chili plant isn't going to have peppers for a bit still if it doesn't get to cold and I used all my habinaros making hot sauce a couple days ago (will make recipie post soon, took a lot of picts) so hopefully I can find some super hot ghosts or Carolina reapers to take the chalange. if you want to call it that.
I eat bulduk bokkenmyun often and it hs no effect but im still scard of the reapers.
Hopefully I can get some and makesome vids for you before you pick a winner.
xD

Ohh so tempting... for pain addicts. No way Papa Pepper, how could you even say mathewtiii was trying to be competitive and not truly caring about us with that warning. He just wants to save us from ourselves and YOU like superman. Duh!
I thought we had to eat 3 not just one, I might be able to handle one at a time...
Let me go get my husband to snap me out of joining this craziness before I do something stupid. This reminds me of jumping off a bridge.

·

I know that your username is supposed to be "kitten null" backwards, but can't you just act like a lunatic for one contest?

Eating three may help you win, but one could be enough... Reaper anyone?

·
·

Hey, I resemble that remark, I act like a lunatic plenty!! :P
Eeeegads. I just realized I'd probably not do just one, wouldn't want to start with the reaper.
Hmmmn. I wonder how they'd go in sushi, this reminds me of sushi for some reason.

·
·
·

I send extras, so you can experiment with the rest later...

·
·
·
·

tempting... devil!!

·

I'd follow you over the bridge.
You first tho.... I need to know if you survive the jump before I go :)

·
·

I've survived other bridges... So that could be a good contest.

·

I decided to join in after @pulpably looked so calm and serene eating her pepper. She should have gotten an Emmy! LOL

·
·

i think she was just holding it in waiting for the time to click off the cam and scream.
what i loved about your vid was that you did it while people were asleep and you were being quiet, that was brave in my book!

·
·
·

LOL There was no screaming...my vocal cords had incinerated as my ear melted from the inside out... Or maybe I was screaming and just couldn't hear myself?

I want to see you eat a pepper @papa-pepper.

make that video for all of us!

·

I posted one for the talent competition and another in my first post about the #hotpepperchallenge.

·
·

Thanks for the prompt response these are so funny.

·
·
·

If I'm paying attention and online, I'm pretty responsive.

You're welcome.

·
·
·

Hilarious, you kept your cool very well.

·
·
·

Too much experience...

·
·
·

never thought of that, reminds me of freezing flys in the freezer and then gluing the to the contraption you want to fly once they thaw out.

·
·
·

Bahaha!

That's an excellent idea.

Where did you fly to?

You know I may have joined this challenge, but you can't ship to Canada :(

·

Want to meet me at the border?

·
·

North dakota or montana?

·
·
·

I'm down for either, which one is easier to sneak contraband across the border at?

I've only smuggled things across from Oregon into British Columbia, and we barely made it in...

That's another story from another life for another time, maybe...

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yeah, on the to do list!

I'll get there.

·

Thanks @anns!

I appreciate it!

Oh hell no! Not with those peppers, pretty sure you can make mace with them...

·

Funny you should mention mace, I have a friend who used to spray into his salsa to give it a more well-rounded flavor!

Remember, you can always let me know if you change your mind.

@papa-pepper upvoted!
I couldn't laugh though because I know how that feels so I think @mathewtiii who ate the Carolina Reaper is the bravest. That Carolina Reaper is freaking hot.
Kudos to @merej99 for eating 3 and the rest who joined the challenge.
Good luck everyone!

·

Yeah, he definitely took this challenge to into a whole new error... er, era.

I like it too, because his post paid out at over $200 total, and he was trying to win 5 STEEM by entering.

Situations like that were the inspiration for the illustration above, which I used in my post on How to Play the STEEMIT Lottery.

·
·

@papa-pepper wow that's a lot of earnings!
Well - he's stepped out of his comfort zone and though he thinks its stupid I actually see it as extra ordinary ;)
till when is this challenge open?

·
·
·

I'm giving folks another week to say that they are interested.

I'll ship Ghosts and Carolina Reapers to people in the US, but I am willing to let other steemians from around the world find the nastiest pepper that they can get their hands on and post a video for the contest.

·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·
·

Yep, but that's just to let me know.

Then they'll have to wait for shipment and post the videos.

That should give you plenty of time to find some dangerous pepper in your area, don't you think?
