“The show with hot questions, and even hotter wings:” That’s how host Sean Evans starts every episode of Hot Ones, a First We Feast web series.
Each week, the show features Evans interviewing a different celebrity over increasingly spicier chicken wings—and let me tell you, it’s hilarious.

Okay, people: It’s time we talk about the unsung hero of hot sauces.
For too long we’ve put Tabasco on a pedestal. Sure, Frank’s is fine. Texas Pete is too, I suppose. But I’m just gonna say it: Crystal puts every other hot sauce to shame.
Good news for hot sauce heads: Cholula is rolling out a new flavor, and they're doing it through a partnership with Umami Burger. Sweet Habenero hot sauce, a fruitier, spicier flavor than the original Cholula, started out last year as an item you could only get if you were part of The Order of Cholula, which is sort of like the illuminati but for hot sauce. Now they're introducing the sauce more widely through a secret menu item that Umami Burger will feature throughout the month of May starting tomorrow, May 5.
When it comes to spicy food, there are those who absolutely love it and those who really don't. It's generally one or the other--it seems there's not a lot of middle ground when it comes to setting your tastebuds aflame. I used to be a total wimp when it came to spice. No level of anything spicy would be allowed on my plate. "Mild" was the only kind of salsa I was OK with, and buffalo wings were simply out of the question.
