News Anchor Eats ‘World’s Hottest Chip’ Hoping To Beat Co-Host, Fails Miserably

The infamous One Chip Challenge has seen a slew of challengers participate in eating the “world’s hottest tortilla chip” and most attempts end in hilarious failure. CBS Philly anchors Jim Donovan and Rahel Solomon decided to give it a go on camera and it didn’t go so well for one of them.

The “one chip challenge” is simple enough. Eat one if Paqui’s tortilla chips and see if you can withstand the extreme heat from the pepper flavor of the Carolina Reaper – the hottest pepper in the world. If you can handle the heat, you’ve won the challenge.

But as Donovan discovers, handling the heat isn’t so easy. Rahel, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be too affected at all, much to Donovan’s chagrin. Rahel admits her Ethopian heritage probably gives her an advantage in handling the spice.

Unfortunately for Donovan, he is nowhere near as impervious. From his first bite, he begins to lose it in more ways than one. It’s all he can do to not drink the milk looming in front of him.

Watch Donovan and Solomon’s hilarious “battle” below and share it with your friends.

Paqui, the maker of the spicy chip, has declared the one chip challenge (or as they call it “the torture”) over…for now.
