Josh Shotter is the New Zealand chilli eating champion for the second year in a row.
The New Zealand Chilli Eating Championships were held in Auckland on Saturday night in conjunction with a hot sauce festival.
"Two years in a row as NZ chilli eating champ, thanks to everyone who believed in me," Shotter posted on his Facebook page.
Ahead of the event he said he was back to defend his title "because I can, it's fun and it's a good day out".
Shotter said the competition went for 17 rounds.
