Does this look like sunscald?

I haven't cut it open yet, but i think this might be severe sunscald on my first pepper. TIA!

Yeah it does, once the sunburn happens then the weakened skin is easily infected. Rest of pepper is usable though unless a fungus got inside or something...

Agree. It helps to pinch your plants early on to encourage nice bushy foliage that shades the fruit.
