In the words of Adam Richman “In the battle against food, man wins!” Well, something along those lines. But yes! I did the Wing Dome 777 challenge and came out successful! It wasn’t that bad at the beginning, but the rule stating that I wasn’t allowed to touch my face is what brought me down. One never really thinks about it, but when you have hot spicy mess sitting on your face for seven minutes, it starts to burn. BADLY. I didn’t think I could make it, but thanks to my roommate Kelly, I was able to push through!! Here are some pictures showing the madness.
After I had signed my life away….
Yes, I do realize this is an extremely attractive picture of me… But hey, gotta get 7 wings down in 7 minutes!!!
With about 2 minutes left, I started to slow down. My skin was burning from the sauce and I was starting to shake… And it looked like there was so much meat left! But then Kelly, Jesse and Chris started cheering me on and telling me I could do it!
I literally finished with 3 seconds to go.
Sorry for the bad quality picture, my blackberry doesn’t take good ones… But look how happy I am!
After it was all done with, my face felt like it was on fire and I was shaking. I went outside where it was cold with some ice and tried to cool my body off. I thoroughly enjoyed my much earned ice cream sandwich and tried to cool my face off with it and my cup of ice. It was a good challenge for sure. I was watching FSC (Fox Soccer Channel) and tried to take my mind off of it. The wings definitely could’ve been spicier, but I’m glad they weren’t for the fact that it burned on my face. The area around the mouth was completely swollen afterwards, and even 2 hours later my lips are still a bit swollen. I’ve had spicier food, but the difference is – I could stop eating, or at least drink some water during the meal. As much fun as that was, I don’t know if I’d put myself through that again. Alright, let’s be honest, we all know I’m going to forget this pain and try another spicy challenge again! But for now, I’m going to go lay down and hope my stomach stops hurting…
Question of the day – Spiciest dish you’ve ever had?
