T-Pain Battles Olivia Culpo In Foodbeast’s First Celebrity Kitchen League Match

Foodbeast’s Twitch cooking competition show, Kitchen League, is geared up for its first celebrity battle, with music icon T-Pain and supermodel and actress Olivia Culpo duking it out against each other this Thursday at 2pm PST. Kitchen League veteran chefs, Malika Lim of HyperRPG and Leon C. Brunson will be serving as the coaches to each respective contestant.

LG’s decided to join in on all the fun for this special Kitchen League Homestyle Challenge by providing a host of next-level appliances that introduce state-of-the-art technology to the Foodbeast kitchen arena.

For the unfamiliar, Kitchen League is a battle arena on the Foodbeast Twitch channel that is equal parts cooking and hijinks, with the audience given the power to either sabotage or protect the contestants. Sabotages can come in the form of chefs being forced to cook blindfolded or even have the use of kitchen utensils taken away from them for a period of time. Whatever the shenanigans, trust that the results are always entertaining and chaotic.

How T-Pain and Olivia Culpo can handle that type of heat in the Foodbeast Kitchen League arena remains to be seen, but know that we’re all in for a dynamic matchup that pits T-Pain’s appetite and cocktail-making prowess against Culpo’s kitchen skills and restaurateur experience. It’s Kitchen League, of course, so trust we’ll be wowed throughout much of the competition.

Catch this much-anticipate livestream on the Foodbeast Twitch channel here at 2pm PST.

Grammy-Nominated Producer’s Hot Sauce Stands Out With Taste And Streetwear Credibility

When you get a hot sauce that’s concocted by a critically acclaimed music producer who has worked with the likes of Kanye West, Post Malone, Bjork, and Santigold, it only makes sense that it’s presented with style as much as flavor. That’s exactly what Jah Mama Sauce is.

Created by Roofeeo, Jah Mama has been one of the stand out hot sauces as of late, offering itself at the intersection of streetwear cool and must-try spice. It helps that it’s also backed by its own fashionable merch line. No wonder Jah Mama’s found fans in a who’s who of cool with Pharrell Williams, Virgil Abloh, ASAP Ferg, Buddy, and Bella Hadid.

But the secret of the sauce lies in Roofeeo’s family recipe, one that’s been passed down for generations and uses the fiery scotch bonnet pepper, a favorite in the Caribbean.

With a deeply rooted history, deliciously blazing recipe, and aesthetically cool stylings, Jah Mama Sauce looks to be a mainstay in many folks kitchen pantries.

Detroit Lions Coach Dan Campbell’s Starbucks Order Is Not For The Faint Of Heart

Between declaring that his players will bite a knee cap off and wanting a pet lion be present during team practices, the Detroit Lions’ head coach Dan Campbell has been a lightning rod for eyebrow-raising quotes this past year. However, him recently sharing his daily order at Starbucks might give us some insight on why he’s wired to say such outlandish things. Key word, wired.

“I’ll get two Venti, of the Pike, with two shots in it. That’s what I come in with, that’s how I start my day.”

While a Venti is only 20-ounces, instead of the 40 claimed in the Tweet above, an added total of 12-ounces of espresso shots makes for 52-ounces of jet fuel coursing through this man’s veins. That might explain the whole pet lion thing and his appetite for kneecaps.

Will this heart-stopping order become the next Starbucks craze? They could very well capitalize on it, call it The Lion Tamer or something.

But then again, the coffee chain could likely catch a case once that dark roast gasoline catches a body.
