Buddy’s BBQ & Burgers on Pollokshaws Road is an ‘American-style’ restaurant situated in Glasgow. This restaurant invites you to sink your teeth into six chicken wings covered in Naga Viper sauce and Scotch Bonnet Chilies. However, you only have five minutes to eat all six wings! After eating, you must endure five minutes ‘sitting time’ to prove you can handle the spice levels. You must also complete all this without the aid of any napkins or drinks!

However, the task definitely becomes worth the challenge if you win, as you will receive your wings for free. Successful competitors will also win a cold milkshake to help clam any festering spice!

Buddy’s BBQ & Burgers livestream all attempts on Facebook and have their competitors fill out a waiver before their visit. This ensures they have time to prepare the sauce to the spiciest level possible, making it certain that you will be in for a challenge.

Unlike the TV show, there are no fatal repercussions if you were to lose this challenge. However, if you can handle the pressure of this intense task, you will win a protein pancake stack topped with honeycomb, lotus Biscoff sauce, cream, and the squid game cookie.
