For almost a decade, the YouTube couple known as Pranksters In Love have shown the world how fun (or awful) it is to eat hot peppers. When it comes to the Scoville heat scale, these two are consistently off the charts.
A Scoville heat unit (SHU) measures the heat given off by peppers and other spicy foods. It is the spiciness unit. Sriracha measures from 1,000 to 2,500 SHU. A jalapeño pepper can range from 1,000 to 20,000. Nikki and John, also known as the Pranksters in Love, recently made an attempt to try the Carolina Reaper, which measures 2.2 million on the Scoville scale, with pretty hilarious results.
In a recent collaboration with fellow YouTubers The Dudesons and Joey’s Fitness Vlogs, Nikki of the Pranksters in Love tried the pepper. The four started the challenge and quickly became frantic in their reaction to the pain. Bolstered slightly by the amount of people watching them make fools of themselves.

“I can’t breathe,” one of the YouTubers shouted to the camera.
The notorious prank warring lovers have eaten many types of peppers over the years, including Scorpion Peppers.
Though Nikki’s husband John wasn’t there for the most recent iteration of a pepper prank, he has been part of many in the years the two have been vlogging together.
One of the duo’s more memorable pranks occurred when John baked some Ghost Peppers into cupcake mix and completely ruined Nikki’s day.
This couple loves their peppers and has been making videos and living together since at least 2010, so maybe there is something in putting your significant other in tremendous physical pain for online revenue and views.
