-- Chuck Saragossi is an online hit after he uploaded videos of himself doing weird things, from eating a dog food sandwich to downing some of the hottest peppers in the world. Soon people started suggesting new challenges. Now he wants them to bring it on by giving him more outrageous requests.
Chuck performs all kinds of crazy challenges that are provided by people who leave their suggestions in the comments section of his YouTube videos. He makes a new video every week in which he stares straight into the camera, delivering on the challenges and spewing hilarious one liners as he goes.

One video shows Chuck suffering in a bathtub full of ice, first from cold, then from heat (but not from the temperature)
. In the footage, Saragossi uploaded a video of himself sitting in ice in his own bathtub, shivering violently from the cold. The he eats a Scorpion Butch T pepper, one of the hottest in the world. As the heat gradually hits, sweat and tears pour from his face. “It’s like purgatory in my mouth!” he says as he chugs a gallon of cold milk to try to tame the pain. By this time his tongue, lips and mouth are so numb he can barely speak.
“If doing weird things is an art, I am making a masterpiece,”
he says and later “I wish this pepper were right back here, if it were a person, I’d beat the hell of him.” His fans eat it up. “Forget America’s Funniest Videos - Chuck is way funnier!” writes a fan.
Sometimes, despite all of his efforts, the food just won’t stay down and Chuck, well, upchucks. When fans complained about being grossed out by this hard truth, he made edited versions of his videos minus the puking.
Chuck recently ate a huge spoonful of cinnamon with Jay Leno on the Tonight Show: http://www.nbc.com/the-tonight-show/video/meal-or-no-meal...
and has been featured twice on viral video site Right This Minute: http://www.rightthisminute.com/video/life-full-glass-vine...
. Chuck is available for appearances and interviews about his bizarre hobby.
