L.O.F. 7-Pot Primo Challenge

You’ve heard of the LOF Reaper Challenge, now we introduce to you the LOF 7-POT PRIMO CHALLENGE! This is, quite simply, a League Table for the number of 7-Pot Primo peppers eaten in one sitting!

To make it official and to remove any doubt of any camera trickery as well as to safeguard the person undertaking the challenge against possible injury, we will only be able to accept 7-Pot Primo eating challenges undertaken at an official event or somewhere with at least two chilli community officials present to witness the challenge from start to finish to authenticate as well as to ensure the safety of the person undertaking the challenge – these could be chilli growers, sauce producers, or any other well-regarded and responsible persons within the chilli community.

This is to make sure everything is done correctly, safely and responsibly. We don’t want people to go overboard and risk injury and so the point of having witnesses/judges there will also serve as a preventative measure alongside authenticity.

If you wish to undertake a 7-Pot Primo-eating challenge to get on our league, please contact us in advance with the details of when and where and if not at an official event then the names and credentials of the witnesses who will be present must be provided so we are able to check that your prospective challenge will qualify for entry into the L.O.F. and check all the information supplied before sanctioning your challenge.

It is your responsibility to read and adhere to all the guidelines outlined in our rule set for The L.O.F. 7-Pot Primo Challenge. We will not be able to accept any 7-Pot Primo-eating challenges undertaken on and from 15th October 2022 unless they follow our rules strictly. For example you will need to weigh the 7-Pots (plus stalks) before the challenge and then the remaining stalks afterwards (or de-stalk prior to weighing). You will also need to keep a record of the time taken to complete the challenge.

LOF World Ranking Points:
  • 1 point for each 7-Pot Primo Pepper consumed
  • PLUS an additional 1 point for every 5g in weight (rounded down). Where no weight has been recorded (in some older challenges) no ‘weight points’ are awarded.

*Extra Bonus Points in ascending order for each consecutive 10 7-Pot Primo consumed in one sitting:

  • 1 bonus point for the 10th 7-Pot;
  • 2 bonus points for the 20th 7-Pot;
  • 3 bonus points for the 30th 7-Pot and so on

*Currently a maximum of 200 7-Pot Primos is allowed. Any more than this would not be counted and no additional points would be awarded.

There are 2 League Tables for this Challenge – The first shows the number of Reapers consumed (with the weight in grams in brackets) and the other shows the weight (with the number of Reapers consumed in brackets). The points shown in each table are only awarded once.
