The Brahmas top the Jaguars in Jalapeno Eating Contest

Whataburger tent

It was an evening of jalapeno crunching and milk guzzling at the Whataburger parking lot off Bulverde Road, as MacArthur and Johnson High Schools faced off in a battle of heat resistance for a good cause on September 25. The contest served as a great test of strength, before the football teams clash on the gridiron this Saturday.  Each team had three brave members ready to eat through the pain for prize money.

The night ended with all participants’ mouths burning and MacArthur eating the most jalapenos, earning them $1,000.  Whataburger also gave $500 to the team with the most fans present, which MacArthur won as well. The Jaguars weren’t left with just scolding mouths. Whataburger will provide one round of free food to the Johnson football team and cheerleading squad.
