Sean Evans (born April 26, 1986) is an American YouTuber and producer. He is the host of the YouTube series Hot Ones, in which he interviews celebrities while they eat progressively spicier chicken wings. Born in the Chicago suburb of Evanston, Evans found fame on the internet not only for his proficiency in celebrity interviews, but also for eating incredibly spicy food like the Carolina Reaper pepper, which holds the title for hottest pepper by Guinness World Records. He cites eating spicy food as a child for building up his tolerance. Before working as an interviewer Evans was a copywriter for the Chicago tourism board.
Evans started freelancing for Complex Magazine in New Orleans, doing interviews for the publication and putting them on their YouTube channel, interviewing famous celebrities such as 2 Chainz and Steph Curry. The magazine offered him a full-time job in New York City, and he quickly quit his job and started a career at Complex.
Hot Ones is created by Christopher Schonberger and produced by FirstWeFeast.com and Complex Media. Its tagline, stated by Evans at the beginning of each episode, is "The show with hot questions, and even hotter wings." The show was created from a meeting between Sean Evans and FirstWeFeast.com Editor-in-Chief Christopher Schonberger.
Evans has interviewed a number of celebrities, including Shaquille O'Neal, Marques Brownlee, Jeff Goldblum, Kevin Hart, Charlize Theron, Guy Fieri, Gordon Ramsay, Post Malone, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Scarlett Johansson, and Paul Rudd. The format involves Evans and his guest eating ten chicken wings, each prepared with a progressively hotter hot sauce. The current final sauce, The Last Dab XXX, has a Scoville rating of 2,000,000.
Every season, sauces used on camera are rotated and replaced with new ones. In season 4, "The Last Dab" was introduced and is created by Hot Ones. The sauce is projected to be around 2 million Scoville units. After each wing, Evans asks his guest an interview question. As the wings get hotter, the guest begins to display the effects of eating the spicier wings and the interview becomes less about the guest and more about the struggle to finish the wings. The guests are also provided glasses of water and milk to counteract the effect of the wings.
The standard show includes Evans and one guest eating ten wings each, but in some episodes where there are two guests (such as the episode featuring Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele) only five wings are given to each guest. A guest who successfully finishes all ten wings is given the opportunity to promote their upcoming projects; guests who fail are still afforded this opportunity but are added to the show's infamous Hall of Shame.
