The Wing Challenge

Last week, Jenny, Nat, and John faced the Towne Crier Wing Challenge with gusto.  The challenge consisted of three rounds of three wings each.  The first two rounds allowed you to use additional food and drink to take down the chicken wings.  In the final round after eating the three extremely hot, spicy wings you had three minutes before you could injest any other foods or drinks.  Those three minutes on their faces was the most grueling as an audience to watch.

These were the wings I ate….nowhere near the same heat as those guys’ wings

These were the wings in Round 3.  Regular tobasco sauce consists of about 3000 Scovilles of heat.  These wings were 1,000,000 Scovilles, exceeding the heat of pepper spray that police officers use!  They were hot!

Nat ate those wings really fast, then after the three minutes he took a bite of a corner of cream cheese to cut the heat

Next to go was John.  He looked like he was in pain!  But he made it through.

Jenny is all smiles before the third round

Jenny did it!  Those three minutes were definitely the toughest.


Congratulations Nat, Jenny and John for making it on the Wall of Fire!
