Hot Wings, Hot Sauce – Hot Ones

“Hot Ones” is a unique web show where celebrities get interviewed while tasting chicken wings laced with varying intensities of hot sauce.

“I don’t think there’s a wing here that I can’t eat like it’s ice cream. Seriously, I don’t think there’s a wing on this table that I cannot devour like it’s cool whipped cream!” boasted O’Brien. However, he swallowed his words, literally, when he tasted an extremely spicy hot sauce and resorted to shouting at the host, Sean Evans, affirming he was okay despite fumbling with the spice. His heated ordeal was witnessed by Twitter users who livetweeted the event.
