Biography

Sean Evans is an American YouTuber who is best known for co-creating and hosting the series Hot Ones, in which he interviews celebrities as they eat progressively spicier chicken wings.

Hot Ones

Evans is the host of Hot Ones, which he co-created with Chris Schonberger, the General Manager of First We Feast, the Complex Media property that produces the show. Hot Ones' tagline is, "It's the show with hot questions, and even hotter wings," and Evans repeats it in the intro to each episode. New episodes normally come out Thursdays at 11 a.m. ET.

The idea for Hot Ones sprang from a meeting in which Evans and Schonberger were brainstorming ways to create a fresh take on the celebrity interview. In a 2022 Vanity Fair profile about Evans, Schonberger described the initial discussions about a hot wing interview show: “I just thought it was funny ... Then we kind of saw this magic happen in the room.” Evans and Schonberger realized that the concept carried an added feature: the hot sauce helped break down guests’ inhibitions and encouraged them to set aside the usual late night TV-style talking points. Evans has said, "Celebrity is so unobtainable by definition, you know. But what's more common man than dying on hot sauce?"

The format of the show, which regularly amasses millions of views per episode on YouTube, involves Evans and his guest eating 10 chicken wings, or vegan substitutes, each doused in a different hot sauce that's spicier than the one before it. In each season of the show, the lineup of hot sauces changes, with the exception of the eighth wing (Da Bomb Beyond Insanity) and the 10th wing (The Last Dab, a sauce created by Hot Ones and the Brooklyn-based hot sauce company Heatonist). The term "the last dab" refers to the show's tradition of Evans and his guest "dabbing" each final wing with an extra dollop of the namesake sauce.

Evans has interviewed hundreds of celebrities, including Shaquille O'Neal, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake, Cate Blanchett, Billie Eilish, Matt Damon, Kevin Hart, Kristen Stewart, Gordon Ramsay, Post Malone, Dua Lipa, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Scarlett Johansson, Noel Gallagher, Salma Hayek, and Jimmy Kimmel among others. Evans' episode, in 2019, with Paul Rudd spawned the meme, "Look at us. Who would have thought? Not me."

Other videos for First We Feast include teaming up with Chili Klaus, another spicy food internet personality, to eat a Carolina Reaper pepper, a record-breaking chili pepper (1,569,300 Scovilles) grown by chili pepper guru Smokin' Ed Currie. Evans and Klaus reunited to eat the pepper a second time, that time while riding on a horse carriage in Central Park.

In 2020, Evans began hosting Hot Ones: The Game Show, a trivia game show based on Hot Ones that aired on TruTV.

In 2021, Mikey Day impersonated Evans in a Saturday Night Live skit where Maya Rudolph plays Beyoncé in a spoof episode of Hot Ones and ends up having a meltdown due to not being able to handle the spiciness. A year later, in June 2022, Evans did a cameo as himself in an episode of Apple TV+ show Loot, where the main character (coincidentally also played by Maya Rudolph) does the Hot Ones interview and ends up having a meltdown due to not being able to handle the spiciness.

On May 25, 2021, Evans was nominated for the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Entertainment Talk Show Host at the 48th Daytime Emmy Awards. He has won internet entertainment awards including the Shorty, the Lovie, and the Webby. Evans has appeared on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

On July 19, 2019, the Chicago native threw out the first pitch at a Cubs-Pirates game at Wrigley Field.

In a 2021 interview with Esquire, Evans addressed the future of the show this way: "I do feel in some ways closer to the end of it than the beginning. We have been doing it for a long time and I'm not sure there's anything that I'm leaving on the table. Hot Ones has already done 10 laps around any expectation that I ever had for it ... So it's in a spot where I'm just doing something that I really enjoy doing. So I'm committed to Hot Ones for as long as the fans will allow it."
