Competitive Eater L.A. Beast Attempts To Drink Gallon Of Honey...While Covered In Bees: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-07-16 at 10.57.57 AM

The L.A. Beast, a competitive eater known to drink Tabasco by the liter, took on a new challenge recently: downing a gallon of honey (which he hates) while covered in bees (which he is terrified of). Needless to say, it was going to be a difficult one to complete.

The NY Daily News reports:

“I feel I’m gonna need the spirit of the Ultimate Warrior today, because I hate honey and I’m deathly afraid of bees,” he says as he prepares for what he says is the challenge of his life.

The nearly 12-minute video sees the Beast downing most of the gloop.

But, sadly, he has to eventually quit after vomiting one too many times.

The Beast's aim was not solely to see if he could guzzle the bee nectar, though. In the YouTube video description he gives a shout-out to Michelle Donaldson, a friend and cancer patient who helped find the beekeeper and make this challenge happen:

Any love and support to help her ease some of the financial strain of medical bills would go a long way. Please check out her page below. Thank you!

You can find Michelle's GoFundMe page here.

And check out the L.A. Beast's valiant attempt, AFTER THE JUMP...

  2. I'm going to wager it's physically impossible to injest (keep down) so much honey so quickly... and if you managed, it might actually kill you. Straight honey doesn't have enough water in it to eat in that much quanitity...

  3. @KIPP - My thoughts exactly. He'd be in the news for a more unfortunate reason.

  5. That much sugar (honey is mostly simple sugar)will almost certainly result in his death. I wonder if he's been warned by any medical professional. Acute hyperacidosis is a horrible way to die.

  6. Please tell me this guy isn't gay! I'm hopeful that we've evolved beyond this as a community.

  7. This is an example of someone who should not be allowed to procreate. His genes should not be able to go on.

  8. Ingesting a gallon of honey would be dangerous, I would think, due to the incredible spike in blood sugar that would result. However, the thought of one less idiot on the planet....

  12. Is this guy gay? Is this news? What is this, why is it here, who wants to know, what difference does it make? I just drank a whole gallon of iced tea. Get over here, take my picture, hear my story, make me famous.
