In the end, some eggs were eaten and a bunch of money was raised to help sick kids, which is great. But did Steve Harwell truly meet the egg challenge? No! People donated more than 10 grand with the understanding that he would make an honest attempt, but that didn't happen. When the eating got tough, he gave up. No puking, no gagging, no dropping dead of a sulfur overdose — just shame, failure, and admirable philanthropy.
Since the event, Smash Mouth's Facebook page has become festooned with outrage. Some blame Fieri for making the eggs too spicy, but most of the venom is for Harwell. "You fucked this one up pretty bad, Mr. Mouth," wrote one commenter. "50 eggs is humanly possible. You couldn't even do half that."
"Why didn't you eat the eggs?" wrote another disappointed soul. "This is fucking fraud. I'm calling my attorney (HE AN EGG)."
