Details:Steve crunched his way through twenty-one (21) beef tacos -- all hard-shell. The weight: he was able to choke down about 3.6 pounds (1,638g) of authentic Taco Bell tacos. The time: fifty-nine minutes and twenty-four seconds (59m 24s) -- about thirty-six (36) spare seconds in the one-hour timed challenge. Steady in pace throughout the challenge, Steve was forced to stuff face during the last two (2) minutes or so, furiously chomping away at the final taco and shoveling-in the 'shrapnel' that had fallen to the table below his dangerous pie hole.
When he began, Steve announced that he does not even like Taco Bell tacos; he echoed this sentiment several times throughout the challenge. As one spectator pointed out, this dislike is quite the opposite of the norm for a regular food challenge attempt. Usually the contestant thoroughly enjoys, or at least mildly tolerates, the subject of their challenge. The distaste for the subject usually grows as the challenge progresses. Steve seems to select a subject that displeases him, attack it in a food challenge, and then develop a fondness for the item at some point after the challenge (he went through this cycle at the time of his BW3's chicken leg challenge).
A local photographer captured oodles of challenge images (and some images of the peanut-gallery). Side note: the given Taco Bell was quite a bee's nest of honeys, of whom the photographer captured some images (mostly by design) in his fine camera work.

Details:Steve devastated twenty-two (22) full-sized chicken legs from BW3's. The poor legs did not stand a chance. There were six (6) flavors of sauces ranging from sissy mild to painfully hot. The legs were divvied up into six (6) groups of four (4), with each group of four doused in progressively hotter sauce. While many thought that the spiciness would be Steve's undoing, it was the sheer volume. The only sign of any effects of the spiciness was Steve wiping perspiration from his head. What an iron mouth (and gastral system). More images can be found in the gallery (opens in new window).
Did not achieve goal! Steve was attempting to eat 25 chicken legs total. Just three more?
