On Saturday, the 18th of May, 26 brave contestants came together to participate in the Johnny Hexburg Challenge, all in the name of Charity.
This chilli competition, which consisted of 7 rounds, was flaming hot and went down with a lot of pain, sweat and tears. For each round, the contestants had to eat a chicken nugget with the increasingly hotter chilli sauce, up until the last round. In the last round, the 10 last remaining contestants had to keep the chilli sauce on their tongue until they were allowed to swallow the sauce. The spectators showed their support by cheering on the contestants as they braved the heat.
In the end, all the contestants that survived the last round name’s were thrown in a hat, and the lucky draw was the winner.
The winner was Ryan Wilken(36), and R 4000 was donated to the charity of his choice – Nourish.
The 2nd winner was Jean- Pierre van Tonder(31) from The Courier Guy.
The 3rd winner was Riaan Delpoort(34).
