Competitors taking part in the "Spicy King" chili eating competition at Ningxiang, south China's Hunan Province, August 12, 2017. Squatting in vats filled with chili peppers, the contestants were challenged to eat as many of the spicy hot vegetables as they possibly could. Onlookers clearly enjoyed the scenes of torture. In the end, the victor was a man named Su, who managed to consume 15 chilies in 60 seconds, clinching the championship. [Photo: IC]
