LA Beast Attempts The 9 Million Scoville Spicy Ramen Noodle Challenge And Somebody Call A Doctor

It was only a few weeks ago that LA Beast entertained the masses by pounding a 6-pack of Miller High Life by having a leaf blower blast the beer into his mouth. For any other human being that would be enough ridiculous hijinx to take some time off and reevaluate your priorities in life. Not LA Beast. This man does not rest on his laurels. He is back with an even more stupid feat and this one is absolute fire.

LA Beast AKA Kevin Strahle is no stranger to testing the limits of the human body when it comes to eating foods that would melt the inside of a volcano. In the past few years, he has chugged three bottles of spicy sriracha sauce and eaten 13 habanero peppers in 90 seconds while standing on one foot. His latest challenge is even crazier and hotter.

LA Beast calls it the “9 Million Scoville Spicy Ramen Noodle Challenge.” If you’re familiar with Scoville heat units (SHU), 9 million Scoville is ridiculous. For reference, a habanero ranges between 100,000–350,000 on the Scoville scale, a Ghost chili pepper is rated at more than 1 million SHUs, and the hottest pepper, the Dragon’s Breath Chili Pepper, packs a throat-melting 2,480,000 Scoville units.

In his latest tour de force, LA Beast eats the hottest ramen noodles and tops it off with Mad Dog 375 Plutonium, which is said to be the hottest sauce on the planet with over 9 million Scoville Units. Others have tempted their fate and tried the Mad Dog 375 Plutonium Challenge and it did not go well for them, but extremely entertaining for anyone who watched them squirm as their entrails were scorched. LA Beast attempted the challenge and all I can say is RIP LA Beast’s taste buds, stomach lining, and butthole. On this day, food was victorious in a major way.
