This is what Chinese consider a hot tub

The Netherlands has the Dutch Cucumber Sorting Championship; in the UK they battle for growing the largest vegetables and in China you can be the best at eating peppers whilst sitting in a bath of them.

The title of "Pepper King" was fought for this weekend for the first time in the Chinese province of Hunan. The participants squat in a bath of peppers and have to eat as many chilli peppers as possible in a minute. 

The winner was Mr Su from Hunan. He managed to eat fifteen peppers in a minute and this gave him the title and a 24 carat gold pepper.

Amazing, although he came nowhere near the man who won the contest in Yunnan last year. He managed to eat 47 chillies in two minutes and his bath wasn't filled with normal peppers, but chilli peppers.
