Just call Joe Bean Mr. Jalapeno.

Bean blazed past the competition at Sunday's jalapeno-eating contest in Laconia, N.H., for a victory worth $200.The contest at the Nothing Fancy restaurant pitted Bean against three others. He ate 20 of the hot peppers in a minute, while his closest competitor managed to swallow 16.

The so-called Final Four on Sunday earned their positions by winning preliminary rounds last week.
