There probably isn’t much critical thinking going on in your head when eating chicken wings, but apparently there are many approaches people take, as has been evident on the hit First We Feast Show “Hot Ones.”
For four seasons, Hot Ones host Sean Evans has endured hot wing after hot wing, watching celebrities in front of him try to tackle the fiery food — and has happened to take some notes along the way.
While he has been criticized for his technique, Evans doesn’t think it’s that serious. He is fully aware of the “goofball YouTube tutorials” that tell you to twist off the little bone, then pull out the larger one — which is all good in theory — but a different story when you’re chowing down on some of the hottest wings on Earth, trying not to die.
While observing the different techniques from several guests, such as Key and Peele, and even Gary Vaynerchuk, Evans gave his critiques. He eventually said he’d lean more toward Guy Fieri’s Pick and Pop, and Eric Andre’s “shoot first ask questions later” technique, which you can see below:
So you can try the fancy twisty bone technique while enjoying a regular plate of wings, but if you’re in the trenches and fighting for your life against some really hot chicken, you’re better off doing it like Guy Fieri — as is usually the case with anything.
