Day 4 of trying to build my spice tolerance Pt. 1

It's day four of trying to build my spice tolerance and I'll be eating a Carolina Reaper Pepper in a ramen bun. My friend gave me these peppers a couple months ago and I've been storing them in vinegar in my fridge. I actually don't remember which one is a ghost pepper and which one is a reaper. So, there's a chance I'm getting it wrong. I'll be cooking the 2x spicy ramen. If you've seen some of my other videos, then you know that I don't drain all of the water after cooking noodles but I will this time because I'm reintroducing some of the pepper juice into the noodles and then I'll add the 2x spicy hot sauce. Then I rolled out some Pillsbury flaky biscuit dough and stretched it out so I could fill it with the noodles and the scary looking reaper.

Next, I added the toast nori and sesame seeds, shredded mozzarella, and I crushed up the rest of my Takis to dust a little over the top. Okay, so my plan was to just put the reaper in one of the buns and try to make them all look the same so I wouldn't know which one it was in. Unfortunately, that didnt work out because the offending bun opened up a hole in the steamer. So, I thought I'd be smart and put a mozzarella slice on top of each one and I definitely wouldn't know. I even spun the thing over and over but of course that didn't work so I'll just save my reaper bun for my last one.
