Jaren Wilkerson isn’t afraid to be different

Jaren holding all the hot sauce they tried.

Not everyone know Jarens Wilkerson, but those who have met him know that meeting him is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you ever get to talk to Jaren, I would recommend it. Jaren is a Junior here at Potosi High School. When he graduates he wants to go straight to the workforce and stay in Potosi, Missouri. Jaren likes to play video games, watch movies and spend time with his friends and family. 

Saying Jaren loves hot sauce is an understatement. Jaren eats hot sauce on wings, crackers, chips, and just by itself. He says the intensity of the hot sauce keeps him awake. We had Freshman Landon Badalamenti try some of the hot sauces Jaren eats to see if he could handle the intensity like Jaren can. 

Badalamenti said, “I was not expecting that level of spice, I don’t know how Jaren eats this stuff for fun.”

Jaren had Badalamenti try 7 different intensities of hot sauces on tortilla chips including 3 of his personal favorites, habanero, blue agave sriracha, and extra hot.
