The challenge was simple: contestants had to, in five minutes, eat as much as they could of Sabai Dee Thai Restaurant’s hottest dish on the menu. No water, no napkins and (for at least one contestant) no crying.
The challenge, organized by Cody Onizuka (@codyonizuna), lured a standing room only crowd at the little Thai restaurant on South King Street. It was broadcast live on Channel 808 and co-hosted by KITV’s Amber-Lynn Hyden.
Here’s what the event — and the food — looked like, in case you missed it:
