Chrissy Teigen is the latest celebrity to survive the popular YouTube interview show “Hot Ones,” and she answered some spicy questions in the process.
Teigen’s 25-minute interview kicked off the seventh season of the First We Feast series with host Sean Evans. Here’s how the show works: celebs will eat increasingly spicer wings, and after each one Evans will ask an increasingly harder question. Teigen started out with confidence, but the day after shooting the episode she said on Twitter that she had an appointment with her throat doctor as a result.

However, Teigen made it through every wing — and not only that, but she added hot sauce to most of them, basically giving the majority of her wings their own “last dab.” Our mouths are on fire just thinking about it.
During the interview, Teigen shared her most memorable Twitter battles — she says that cyclists still hate her — and that all those award show meme faces really just come out of fear.
“You get memed relentlessly in the audience,” Evans said, asking, “Is it difficult just sitting there knowing that any gesture, any facial expression could become a viral news story?”
“Now they’re looking for it though, which is what’s tough,” Teigen answered. “When they do that camera thing, they’re two feet in front of you, the red light turns on, and that’s what makes me nervous. I see that light go on, and then I’m like ‘ughhh’ [makes a scrunched up face]. If the light didn’t come on, I don’t think these faces would happen. I get really nervous.”
Teigen also reignited a contentious debate about the merits of deep dish pizza.
“Listen, we went to Chicago, I think I tried four or five different ones. I respect it for what it is, it’s not pizza,” the cookbook author said. Immediately she knew this would spark debate: “Oh, that’s gonna be a thing.”
