He liked the thought, but felt that the show lacked appeal. It was at this time that Sean Evans and Chris Schonberger came up with the idea for 'Hot Ones'. The show was featured on their YouTube channel, 'First We Feast', and was co-produced by Complex Media.

If the celebrity can eat them all, then they can promote their works. The tagline for the show is 'The show with hot questions, and even hotter wings'.
