As the final test begins, one taste tester thinks he actually likes it. "That's really nice," he says before almost going in for a second bite. "I like it. It's like doing a shot."
His eyes start to water and he gets choked up. "A painful shot," he says. Then he and his partner lose it, as you should.
There's a moral in this story and like a Jackson Pollock painting, it might look different for everyone. If the moral you're taking away is you and your friends should try Carolina reapers and film it, do yourself a favor and watch a couple more videos of people taste testing reapers.
