Carolina Reaping Ourselves

Ben and Eric are on a quest. A quest to destroy our taste buds and bodies for a good cause. 

So, here is the plan. We are going to lay out some funding goals. Each tier reached will require us to do a task, this isn't just "eating hot peppers" plan, this is more of a "go on a Tinder date and eat the third hottest pepper in the world" type of deal. 


$100 - Hot sauce shots - the Hot One's hot sauce. live-streamed obviously. Livestream Link 

$250 - We will each drink a Habanero smoothie for breakfast. Livestream Link

$500 -   Livestream of Ben and Eric eating the hottest wings available in Calgary. 

The Unicorn: Livestream Link: 
Bull and Finch: Livestream Link 

$1000 -  Ben and Eric will eat Ghost Peppers during a night out and film the results.  Livestream Link

$1250 -  The highest donators are the good folks over at Growsumo! They have requested that Ben and Eric sing "Give It Away" by The Red Hot Chili Peppers after consuming Naga Peppers. No beers or breaks allowed. 

$1500 - Trinidad Scorpion on a hike (1.2-1.8 million Sc)

$1750 - One of us will go on a date and secretly eat a Komodo Dragon pepper, the third hottest pepper in the world. This will also be live streamed, the goal is to see how long one of us can remain composed under the intense pressure of 2 million Scoville. 

$2000 - Livestream of eating the hottest pepper in the world, the Carolina Reaper, in public, in Calgary.  This will be done in some sort of Q & A format, like hot ones, where we are interviewing someone from the nonprofit, or we are doing an interview about the pepper journey we have been on.

For any amount past the $2000 mark, we will be polling the public for new ideas. 

All donations will be split between Calgary-based non-profit NextGenMen and prostate cancer research.
