Start drinking a candle because the Melbourne Chilli Eating Championship is back

Fancy yourself lord of Chillitown? Mayor of Spiceville? 

The B.East has teamed up with Melbourne Hot Sauce for their third annual Melbourne Chilli Eating Championship, pitting the hottest chillis across the land with the brave souls who dare to try them. The winner will take home 500 dollars in cold, hard, cash. 

Twenty-four contestants will face off over twelve rounds, smashing down the hottest chillis in the entire land -- including the absolutely ruthless Carolina Reaper. 

In case you're wondering how hot that is, please enjoy the below video: 

It's all going down on Saturday March 3 at The B.East
