UK Restaurant Makes You Sign “Loss Of Life” Waiver

Written by on May 1, 2024

Wing Kingz, a restaurant located in Canterbury, Kent, UK, has introduced a new culinary challenge designed to test the limits of spice tolerance.  The aptly named “Earn Your Wingz” challenge requires participants to consume 15 chicken wings coated in a sauce featuring the Carolina Reaper pepper, known for its extreme heat.

However, before embarking on this fiery feat, challengers must sign a waiver, a unique precaution implemented by the restaurant. This waiver acknowledges the potential for intense discomfort associated with the Carolina Reaper and protects both the restaurant and the participant.

The challenge itself is a race against time and the body’s ability to handle the intense heat.  Participants must finish all 15 wings within a strict 10-minute window, followed by a 5-minute “burn time” to assess their ability to withstand the lingering effects.

The Carolina Reaper, a fiery red pepper developed by American breeder Ed Currie, boasts a scorching heat that can reach up to 2.2 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU). To put that into perspective, it’s roughly 200 times hotter than your average jalapeno.
