Hot Ones’ Sean Evans explains why Gordon Ramsay made him nervous

Hot Ones host Sean Evans is extremely accustomed to spicy interviews, but the 33-year-old admitted he was the one sweating when world-famous chef Gordon Ramsay appeared on the show to run the gauntlet and take on the “wings of death.”

Few shows have captured audiences quite like Hot Ones, which sees Evans and his guest sit down at a table with 10 spicy chicken wings in front of them. These aren’t any normal wings though, with each doused in hot sauces, with the chicken getting spicier as the interview continues, leading up to the grand finale Last Dab, a concoction created by First We Feast themselves which clocks in at a mouth-destroying 3.3 million units on the Scoville Heat Scale.

Athletes, celebrities, YouTube stars, and more have all sat face-to-face with Evans and the wings, but the host admitted that while interview these megastars has become the norm for him, Gordon Ramsay’s appearance on the show felt like nothing the First We Feast team had faced before.

The First We Feast crew were nervous heading into their interview with Chef Ramsey.

During an appearance on the H3 Podcast, host Ethan Klein mentioned the success of the Ramsay episode which now has over 50 million views on YouTube, before asking Evans if he had been nervous about the prospect of having the 16-time Michelin Star chef on his show to eat their hot wings.

“I really think the internet peer pressured us into a room together,” Evans explained. “When we first started the show, that was the biggest request. That’s important to us. You could tell, that morning in Los Angeles felt like a playoff game. Going to the office that morning, we were buttoned-up, business trip-type thing.”

“Yeah,” the 33-year-old responded when asked about whether he was nervous about serving food to the TV chef. “The food, he’ll play into that. We have gotten a lot better on the wings, we had a lot of complaints early on, but we’ve turned that around. The wings that Gordon ate were pretty good, I stand by them, but he’s going to come in and make fun of the wings, at one point he was saying ‘Is this expired? It says 2015 on it.’ The sauce he lifted wasn’t even around in 2015, but that’s the Gordon Ramsay side and what makes him an amazing entertainer.

“He’s a teddy bear, was awesome to work with. He’s the man.”

While the First We Feast crew may have been feeling anxious about the prospect of working with Ramsay, the show went off without a hitch, and instantly became a fan-favorite among viewers of the show as they watched one of the world’s greatest tasting palettes go toe-to-toe with the ‘Wings of Death.’

The chef managed to blast his way through the wings, but not everyone finds it as easy as he did, with Birds of Prey star Margot Robbie claiming she was “going to die” while running the gauntlet in the premiere episode of Season 11.

FaZe Clan is one of the best-known gaming and content houses on YouTube, and they have some incredible cars to boot.

Billed as “The world’s most subscribed gaming team” FaZe Clan has built itself a reputation as one of the best-known esports teams on the planet. Since its creation in 2010, the team has dominated in Call Of Duty, CS:GO, and more.

With their rise to fame, naturally, their income streams have grown substantially. Therefore, many members of the FaZe team have splashed the cash on awesome cars to showcase their success, here are some of the highlights from each member.

FaZe Clan cars

Faze Adapt

FaZe Adapt has one of the most heavily-customized cars from the clan.

Starting off with what is without a doubt one of the coolest cars in the FaZe Clan collection, Adapt is the owner of a stunning custom Nissan GT-R. Featured on the iconic West Coast Customs channel, this GT-R is a long way from how it left the factory.

With a custom FaZe-themed wrap, new wheels, and custom interior matching the design of the outside, this is one serious ride. Assuming the engine has remained stock, the GT-R puts out an impressive 485bhp from its twin-turbo V6, with the power going to all four wheels.

Faze Rain

Adapt isn’t the only member of the FaZe Clan to have a supercar. Rain also has his own high-performance car in the form of his black McLaren 570s. This British-built supercar delivers 562hp to the rear wheels from its twin-turbo V8 engine, resulting in a 0-60 time of just over 3 seconds, on to a top speed of 204mph.

In complete contrast to the McLaren is his other car – a Tesla Model X. This all-electric SUV is perfect for cruising around in silence, but is still cool enough and certainly fast enough to make it the envy of many other YouTubers.

FaZe Megga and FaZe Blaze’s Teslas

A number of the FaZe Clan members own Teslas, such as Blaze and his Model 3.

At only 15 years old, Megga is one of the youngest members. Despite his age, he has already bought his “dream car” in the form of a Tesla Model 3. Clearly the members of FaZe Clan like to go fast AND be eco-conscious.

Not only does Megga own a Tesla, but so does fellow clan member FaZe Blaze, who also owns a Tesla Model 3.

FaZe Rug

FaZe Rug has owned a number of cool cars over the years, but currently owns a Mercedes-AMG G Wagon, which was recently ‘destroyed’ as part of a prank. Having admitted his want for a Rolls-Royce Phantom, it may only be a matter of time before we see him add one to his garage.

FaZe Clan team cars

While a number of the members have individual rides, there is also a ‘team’ car for the FaZe members. Their custom Nissan Armada wrapped in FaZe colors has been spotted a number of times at press events.

Long-time FaZe followers will also remember the customized Lincoln Navigator that they had back in New York City, but that is now long-gone.
