Sean Evans is the new host of Complex’s ‘Hot Ones’ YouTube series. Christopher Schonberger launched ‘First We Feast’ after creating the ‘Hot Ones’ series. Sean Evans’ debut ‘Hot Ones’ episode premiered in March 2015.
The audience enjoys the structure of the popular ‘Hot Ones’ series. Sean interviews several celebrities while eating chicken wings. He attributes his tolerance to eating spicy food as a youngster.
Evans is the host of Hot Ones, an online game show created by Christopher Schonberger and produced by FirstWeFeast.com and Complex Media. The show’s tagline, as stated by Evans at the start of each episode, is “The show with hot questions, and even hotter wings.” Sean Evans and Christopher Schonberger, Editor-in-Chief of FirstWeFeast.com, met to create the show.
Sean has had the opportunity to interview celebrities such as Jeff Goldblum, Kevin Hart, Charlize Theron, Gordon Ramsay, and Post Malone on this show. Every season, the sauces used on camera are swapped out for new ones. “The Last Dab,” produced by Hot Ones, was added in Season 4.
This is why fans like seeing their favorite celebs struggle to eat spicy chicken wings. On the one hand, some celebrities respond to the hot and spicy chicken wings in the most creative ways conceivable, while others just eat them like any other day. For vegetarian and vegan celebs, the program provides a plant-based option that is as hot and spicy.
The host Sean Evans and the celebrity visitor generally consume the first chicken wing, which is usually slightly hot (Scoville rating of around 2200). The heat level rises as the interview proceeds.
The Last Dab (Scoville rating of millions) is the last chicken wing, created especially for the program. Sean’s questions are exceedingly tough for celebrities to respond with their tongues on fire.
The ‘Hall of Shame’ is for celebrities who quit before finishing all 10 chicken wings. Guests that complete all 10 wings are given the opportunity to market their next ventures.
Sean Evans has interviewed a number of well-known actors and actresses, including Daniel Radcliffe, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Matthew McConaughey, Ronda Rousey, Jessica Alba, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson, Will Ferrell, Brad Leone, Nick Offerman, Maisie Williams, Paul Rudd, Ashton Kutcher, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and more.
Sean Evans’ net worth is primarily derived from his YouTube program profits. He has hosted around 200 episodes of the show, which has significantly increased his net worth. He enjoys attending various hot sauce expos and conversing with attendees about various hot sauces.
