Chugging an entire gallon of honey is tough enough under optimal circumstances—that's about 2 weeks worth of calories—but it's absolutely terrifying when you have 2,000 bees hanging out all over your face.

But competitive eater L.A. Beast, the man who once tried to drink a gallon of Tabasco and downed a bottle of 20-year-old Crystal Pepsi, isn't one to back down from a stupid idea. So, with the queen bee strapped to his chin and the rest of the swarm following, he ignored a professional beekeeper's advice and went for it.

"I don't recommend to do that," the beekeeper said worriedly. "Don't open your mouth!"

Too late.
