Watch Hot Ones
- 14 Seasons
In the YouTube series Hot Ones, host Sean Evans interviews celebrity guests as they dine on increasingly spicy chicken wings. The series has been produced regularly since 2015. The format involves Evans and his guests eating ten chicken wings (or an alternative if the guest is vegetarian/vegan), each prepared with a progressively hotter hot sauce. Evans states the show's tagline at the beginning of each episode: "The show with hot questions, and even hotter wings." The first sauce presented is relatively mild such as Sriracha, which has a rating of 2,200 Scoville units. The final sauce (as of season 4), Hot Ones' own The Last Dab (The Last Dab Reduxx starting in season 6, and The Last Dab XXX starting in Season 10), has a Scoville rating of 2,000,000+. As per "tradition", the guests are encouraged to put a minuscule amount of The Last Dab on the final wing; they are told this is not required, but most guests opt to do so even when already struggling with the heat of the previous wings. After each wing, Evans asks his guest an interview question. As the wings get hotter, the guest typically begins to display the effects of eating the spicier wings and the interview becomes less focused on the guest and more so the struggle to finish the wings. The guests are also provided glasses of water and milk to counteract the effect of the wings.
