HOT Sauce Challenge at State Fair

What's in this tiny bottle can move the mightiest of men and the strongest of women to tears... so why, you might ask, are state fairgoers testing the limits of human consumption? "Simple, really. It's for a good cause."

We got a super hot sauce challenge

But it's not just ANY challenge. It's a Big Daddy dare. If you can eat it within ten minutes, you get that trophy right there, and you get a t-shirt and bragging rights.

And IT is a prodigious portion of pork soaked in a sauce so spicy it'll make your head spin.

The million dollar question is, how hot is this stuff? It's hot! Very hot.

You get done eating, you're going to need some paramedics to help you out. It's dangerous.

But four brave state fairgoers are risking certain indigestion

Yeah, can I get some of that water?

To raise money for the less fortunate.

Are you apprehensive? Not at all. Do you think you can do it? I know I can do it.

And less than two minutes after the first burning bite

The ever-confident Patrick Rahm eats his competition alive.

That's the secret to it, you gotta go through it and meditate.

The performance would have made Big Daddy proud.

He had a big heart and he loved people.

We're going to keep those good things going that dad used to do when he was living.

The proceeds will benefit not only the Food Bank of Iowa but one of Big Daddy's most beloved charities--the Spirit of Thanksgiving.

From the State Fair, PB NewsChannel 8, Iowa's News Leader.

Each contestant had to sign a waiver and donate fifty dollars to take part in this year's challenge.

Big Daddy's son, Ike Seymour Junior says the money will go not only to the Food Bank of Iowa but towards providing turkeys to local families in need this Thanksgiving.
