'My Mouth Is on Fire': Competitive Eater Takes on Eye-Watering Spicy Noodle Challenge

A competitive eater from New Zealand with a taste for spicy foods took on a “ten times spicy Korean fire noodles” challenge, posting the eye-watering results to YouTube.

The October 19 video shows Auckland-based competitive eater and model Nela Zisser making her way through a pack of Samyang noodles with five packets of the brand’s “two times” spicy noodle mix on top, turning it into her own version of a “ten times” fire noodle concoction.

In what she describes in the aftermath as “the worst thing I’ve ever done in my life”, the footage shows Zisser completing the challenge in one minute and 48 seconds, despite finding herself “actually crying” as she made her way through the noodles.

The finale of the video shows Zisser telling her 279,000-plus subscribers that her mouth was “on fire” following the challenge. The New Zealander can often be found making her way through outrageous, if usually less spicy, food challenges.

Zisser’s YouTube account chronicles such food feats as wolfing down 10 Burger King Whoppers in 17 minutes, devouring a 1-kg burrito in just under 100 seconds, and consuming a 2.2-pound jar of Nutella in under four minutes. Credit: Nela Zisser via Storyful
