Also, the owners invited the only guy who actually succeeded in the challenge to come and watch. He cheered me at the end saying I did the right thing for tapping out, telling me his roommate had to watch him for the next 36 hours after he did the challenge to make sure he didn't die or anything, cause he felt bad that entire time. He also said that he was still impressed I ate half of it in 15 minutes. Most people who attempt it don't even get that far in that amount of time.
Well that's disappointing. You say it was tasting like just mush in your mouth. Was it really spicy and just wore away your taste buds, or just the slog of getting through that much food made you sick of it?
