Aman was rushed to hospital, suffering from severe stomach pains, after eating three chicken wings doused in sauce made from what is thought to be the world’s hottest chili pepper.
Mark McNeil, 36, was hoping to be able to eat ten of the chicken wings to win a competition.
Despite being given advice at the University Hospital of North Tees for severe stomach pain, he is looking to try again in the competition which is held at The George on Stockton High Street.
The pepper in the sauce is the Carolina Reaper chilli which rates between 1.5m and 2.2m on the Scoville heat unit scale.
This makes the pepper the hottest in the world.
The challenge which caused him the pain is to eat ten of the spicy wings in ten minutes – then you are not allowed to drink for five minutes.
Winners get a full £9.95 refund – but no one has yet managed to receive that lavish prize.
The challenge was launched on Tuesday this week, and not one person has managed to choke down more than three of the wings.
Before undertaking the challenge, everyone has to sign a disclaimer.
The pub manager, Craig Harker has said no-one who had been drinking alcohol would be allowed to do it under any circumstances, and only people who had thought seriously about undertaking the challenge should even consider it.
Mr McNeil said: “The first wing went down okay, a bit tingling. I had another two and it was just overwhelming. A burning sensation. I had loads of milk and ate loads of cucumbers, tomatoes, anything to dull the pain.
“After about an hour and a half the pain was too much. I had to leave work early and go to hospital. The staff were very professional but I could tell they were kind of joking as well when I told them.”
