A much-anticipated "Spice Off" eating competition between two Now reporters resulted in a draw Thursday afternoon.
Held at the infamous Chili Pepper House at 96th Avenue and 128th Street in Surrey, the competition pitted young reporters Christopher Poon and Jacob Zinn against one another in a competition to eat the most spicy food without conceding defeat.
With both having finished all of their meals, the competition continued back at the Now office, where shots of hot sauce were consumed to determine a winner. After two shots a piece, it was decided that, for the time being, the contest would be a draw. The battle is set to continue in the coming week.
