Today's award goes to a hot-to-trot (so to speak) eater in England.
A man was rushed to hospital, suffering from severe stomach pains, after eating three chicken wings doused in sauce made from what is thought to be the world's hottest chili pepper.
Mark McNeil, 36, was hoping to be able to eat ten of the chicken wings to win a competition.
. . .
The pepper in the sauce is the Carolina Reaper chilli which rates between 1.5m and 2.2m on the Scoville heat unit scale.
This makes the pepper the hottest in the world.
The challenge which caused him the pain is to eat ten of the spicy wings in ten minutes - then you are not allowed to drink for five minutes.
Winners get a full £9.95 refund - but no one has yet managed to receive that lavish prize.
The challenge was launched on Tuesday this week, and not one person has managed to choke down more than three of the wings.
. . .
Mr McNeil said: “The first wing went down okay, a bit tingling. I had another two and it was just overwhelming. A burning sensation. I had loads of milk and ate loads of cucumbers, tomatoes, anything to dull the pain.
"After about an hour and a half the pain was too much. I had to leave work early and go to hospital. The staff were very professional but I could tell they were kind of joking as well when I told them."

Here's a hint: When the restaurant insists you sign a waiver, absolving them of all responsibility, before they'll let you even order the dish, let alone taste it . . . maybe - just maybe - you might want to think about why they'd regard that as necessary!
