In the past two years alone, Jack has set four Guinness World Records for consuming chilli peppers, including three involving the famous Bhut Jolokia pepper, also known as the ghost pepper, one of the world’s hottest peppers from north-eastern India.
“There are actually eight different Guinness records on the Guinness record website. I’m trying to collect them all, just like Pokémon,” Jack said Monday as quoted by media outlets.
According to the Guinness World Records, Mike Jack attempted this record in London, Ontario, Canada, on 21 November 2020.
