Michael B. Jordan has taken on the role of a boxer, a football quarterback, and more recently, Black Panther’s Killmonger. However, tackling an increasingly fiery gauntlet of wings may be his toughest challenge yet.
The accomplished actor went on First We Feast’s show Hot Ones to dish on the new Marvel film and more with host Sean Evans. As Jordan progressed through the increasingly spicy barrage of chicken wings, he also had to deal with Evans’ tough questions.
Jordan cruised through most of the wings with ease while discussing how he got into the Killmonger character, waking up early to eat more on cheat days, and his go-to convenience store food hacks. When it came to the final three levels of heat, however, Jordan’s eating pace slowed fast as he was visibly shaken by how spicy they were.
He tried his best to go the whole way without any milk or aids, but eventually gave in and took a sip before taking on the final wing, coated with the Last Dab hot sauce. The milk didn’t help him at all, but that didn’t deter Jordan, who powered through and managed to conquer all ten wings in the Hot Ones lineup.
Jordan’s run was impressive, but while Black Panther is out here flourishing, it would be dope to see Chadwick Boseman to take on the spicy wings next. It would be interesting to see if the true Black Panther can take the heat better than Killmonger.
