At Heatwave we take eating hot sauce seriously!

Audiences will be cheering on their favourite competitors as they devour food doused in the hottest hot sauce at the Expo. Many will enter but not all will survive. When the smoke clears there will only be one who can wear the crown as King of the Ring. Will it be you?
CHILI PEPPER EATING CHALLENGE - Presented by Hurt Berry Farms
Sunday at 2:45pm
Contestants eat raw peppers grown by Hurt Berry Farms while battling through feelings of intense heat that seem to burn through their tongues, lips, throats and guts. This is a test of endurance, pain tolerance and mental strength. We start with hot peppers then move on to even hotter peppers and then we throw crazy hot peppers into the mix. If you can't keep up, you're out. If you drink any liquids, you're out. If you throw up, you're definitely out. But if you make it to the end and out eat the competition you will be crowned the Ring of Fire Champion and all others must bow down in your presence.
Winner takes home $200 cash plus a bunch of spicy prizes. All contestants take home prizes in exchange for their suffering for our pleasure.
