Guy Barely Survives Bhut Jolokia Chili Pepper (Video)

The Bhut Jolokia, also known as ghost chili or ghost pepper, is a chili pepper previously recognized by Guinness World Records as the hottest pepper in the world.

In 2007, Guinness World Records certified the Bhut Jolokia as the world’s hottest chili pepper, 401.5 times hotter than Tabasco sauce.

On December 3, 2010, the Bhut Jolokia was replaced as the hottest known chili pepper by the Naga Viper pepper, which has an average peak Scoville rating more than 300,000 points higher than an average Bhut Jolokia – but still not higher than the hottest ever recorded Dorset Naga.
