  7. Ben Dover on May 11, 2021 at 12:35 am

    Can someone clarify for me, why people like to put things that cause them such pain and discomfort in their mouth?

  8. Asisin Mama on May 11, 2021 at 12:36 am

    This is common in my country, we don’t cook without it, we have specific tribe that can make its stew and eat it with white rice or make pepper soup 😋😋

  9. User 34 on May 11, 2021 at 12:37 am

  10. Victory Saber on May 11, 2021 at 12:37 am

  11. lauren hengstenberg on May 11, 2021 at 12:38 am

  12. Zander Leslie on May 11, 2021 at 12:38 am

    I nearly died eating one of them

  13. Gerrit Ter Haar on May 11, 2021 at 12:39 am

    He should have stayed in the cannabis business. I would have loved to see what strains he produced.

  14. Zander Leslie on May 11, 2021 at 12:39 am

    My guys insides must be melted

  15. Pema Lhendup on May 11, 2021 at 12:40 am

  16. GBMP on May 11, 2021 at 12:41 am

  19. Anime Bubble on May 11, 2021 at 12:41 am

    He just said that carolina reapers dont affect him anymore

    Make sense he made them and worked with em for more than 8 years

  20. Brandon Kruger on May 11, 2021 at 12:42 am

    Imagine what the inside of his stomach looks like.

  21. Virasman on May 11, 2021 at 12:42 am

    This guy never has a vitamin C deficiency

  22. niko bellic on May 11, 2021 at 12:44 am

    I bought a Carolina reaper online for fun. Just putting the tip of your tongue on an exposed piece will trigger an almost permanent unshakable burn all over your lips tongue and throat.

  23. Luke Paterlini on May 11, 2021 at 12:48 am

    i wouldnt mind going around munchin’ and breeding pepper for job

  24. tommy Dawson on May 11, 2021 at 12:49 am

  27. Shaheed Baksh on May 11, 2021 at 12:55 am

    I am a grower of Trinidad scorpion. What can I do to increase the size of of this pepper and maintain it’s size through out harvest?
    Do you have Carolina reaper seeds to sell.

  28. Tommy Croissant on May 11, 2021 at 12:55 am

  37. Jacob Spratzzer on May 11, 2021 at 1:09 am

  39. LagzzOn Quack on May 11, 2021 at 1:10 am

    Bro I just watched the world hottest pepper on the big story channel

  40. Hanzifcation on May 11, 2021 at 1:13 am

    Bring the heat!

  41. April Hudson on May 11, 2021 at 1:14 am

    Good to see that Ed dumped the South Carolina chump. I believe that the motivation to cross breed hotter peppers is because capsaicin has cancer fighting properties, important to Ed.

    I personally get defeated by the moruga. I grow Trinidad scorpion Butch T. Love all super hots!

  42. Nik Hisham on May 11, 2021 at 1:14 am

    This man is insane

  43. The Silent One on May 11, 2021 at 1:14 am

    We do the samething with MJ breeding recessive and non recessive traits. Nothing dangerous abt breeding MJ. FFS

  44. Abdul Azeem on May 11, 2021 at 1:19 am

    When drugs don’t hit you anymore!!

  45. Plummet on May 11, 2021 at 1:21 am

    Hes the type of guy who says harder when getting punched

  46. Juan Encarnacion on May 11, 2021 at 1:21 am

    I feel a deep, DEEP sadness for this mans toilet

  47. solacious rain on May 11, 2021 at 1:21 am

    The healthiest form of sadism I’ve ever seen.
    Why can’t we get more of this evil in the world over violence? Lol

  48. Steven on May 11, 2021 at 1:22 am

    Imagine if they made pepper spray outta these, would be classified as a deadly weapon.

  49. Steven Richards on May 11, 2021 at 1:25 am

    I ate a whole reaper once, for 3 days i severely had ‘ring’ sting. Never ever again!

  50. Kumbi on May 11, 2021 at 1:25 am
