Travis Kelce Is in Tears as He Attempts Paqui One Chip Challenge



The challenge involves eating one Carolina Reaper chip and not drinking or eating anything afterward for relief.

Travis Kelce took on the Paqui One Chip Challenge in a new video, with the football player tearing up as he attempted to handle the heat of one Caroline Reaper chip from the Paqui brand.  In a new video on the BBQ Sports TikTok account, Kelce is sporting a red Supreme shirt and a matching sweatband with “One Chip Challenge” written on it while he eats the spicy chip.

Before taking a bite, Kelce challenges sports commentator Greg Olsen, who was formerly a tight end for the Carolina Panthers, even setting aside the tissues, saying, “I will hand [them] to Greg because Greg will need them.”

Kelce takes a bite as milk and Pepto-Bismol sit ready on the table if he needs help relieving the heat. The chip visibly affects him, with Kelce saying, “Oh god, I don’t want to swallow this,” right before he develops hiccups.

As tears start streaming down his face and his hiccups won’t stop, Kelce comments, “It’s always what I’ve wanted to do is breathe fire, just like all the Pokémon.”  Kelce later jokes to Olsen, “You see, I haven’t even dried my eyes, Greg…I don’t need napkins, or milk, or Pepto-Bismol,” though the last word is interrupted by another hiccup. Kelce also admits that he had “no f–king clue” what he would face with the challenge, before stating that “everything’s like shaking,” in response to the chip’s spice.

Fans loved the funny clip and Kelce’s earnest effort to handle the heat, with one saying, “I was not prepared to see tears in those golden retriever puppy dawg eyes 😂,” as another added, “him being a pokemon fan is a major green flag.”  “It’s the hiccup while trying to stay strong for me😂,” joked someone else.

The Paqui One Chip Challenge has been attempted by many different celebrities, although it has drawn criticism due to the effect the chip can have on someone. On the challenge’s website, the company said, “The Paqui One Chip Challenge is intended for adults only,” before noting that this is also stated on the packaging.

The company continued, “We have seen an increase in teens and other individuals not heeding these warnings,” before announcing that, “out of an abundance of caution,” it’s working to remove the product from store shelves. People who have purchased the challenge can also call 1-866-528-6848 for a refund.  This announcement comes after a 14-year-old boy named Harris Wolobah passed away on Sept. 1 shortly after eating the Paqui chip.
