What is Hot Ones?
Hot Ones is a YouTube-based interview series hosted by Sean Evans on the channel First We Feast.
However, guests are not just subjected to a series of questions, oh no, as the host and guest chat, they both participate in a fiery spicy wings challenge that gets progressively hotter with each wing.
Guests who have been on the show in the past include Gordon Ramsey, Shia LaBoeuf and Halle Berry to name just a few.
