Food challenges are not for the faint at heart. For years, ma and pop restaurants have been pulling together extreme and sometimes grotesque concoctions that brave souls willingly force themselves to eat. What do they get for completing these fun food challenges? Usually a dumb t-shirt or maybe their name on the wall in exchange for an awful tummy ache. We've found the most extreme food challenges from around the world and gathered them here for your enjoyment. Only those with strong stomachs should proceed.

In this list of the craziest food challenges you will see everything from sweets to meats and every type of food known to man. Some are covered in cheese and some weigh more than your arm. Take a peak and see if you can muster up the courage to try one out. If you are a true champion you might be able to win a free T-shirt or even cold hard cash.

Just look at all of that food. That's for one person! The best part about this challenge is an American didn't even create it. Longhorns BBQ in England have outdone themselves. They challenge guests to eat seven lbs of smokehouse BBQ made up of Texas brisket, "badass" beef ribs, Memphis pulled pork, a full rack of ribs, smoked sausage, wings, pit beans, red pickle slaw, brioche and fries in one hour to get the coveted t-shirt and picture on the wall of fame!

Three foot long hotdog with bun? Not so bad. But then top it with chili, cheese, onions and jalapeños... getting worse. But for this challenge, you also have to eat a side of chips and coleslaw within an hour, which just may be the straw that broke the camel's back. Do this to win a free meal, T-shirt (that will soon be chilli covered) and a picture on the wall of fame.
