Watch Kevin Durant Face His Greatest Rival To Date: A Hot Wings Challenge

Kevin Durant may be one of the greatest specimens specifically created to dominate on the basketball court. But is he built to take on a challenge where his success depends on how well he’s able to answer questions while suffering through the capsaicin-raging heat?

During a YouTube Livestream through his channel, NBA Champion and 2017 Finals MVP Kevin Durant takes on the Hot Ones wing challenge, while answering some pressing questions.

The challenge begins at the 19th minute where host Sean Evans and KD talk hip hop, NBA 2K, meeting Kobe Bryant, media comparisons, and giving sound life advice to fans while trying to keep his composure.

Durant has no problem getting through the first half of the game, perfect from the field. It really wasn’t until the final minutes of the fourth quarter (last three hot wings) that had Durant in need of a time out.

Needless to say, champions get it done.  Just like his three-pointer against the Cavs in game 5, he sealed his victory, taking on the Hot One’s Last Dab sauce—no water, no milk. Clutch.

Stephen Colbert Loses His Mind During Brutal Hot Wing Challenge

The Late Show’s host Stephen Colbert is usually the one doing the interviewing, but the tables were turned Tuesday, as Colbert was the one answering questions, and doing it while trying to eat some of the hottest wings on Earth.

As his Late Show guest, Colbert had Sean Evans, the host of First We Feast’s Hot Ones web series, where celebrities try to answer questions while eating wings that get progressively, and eventually insanely hotter.

Evans took his wings, and questions to the Late Show, and Colbert tried his hand at ones covered in sauce called Da’ Bomb and Blair’s Mega Death Sauce With Liquid Rage. For a little perspective, the Mega Death sauce is 110 times hotter than a jalapeno.

The challenge usually requires 10 wings and 10 questions, but due to time constraints, Colbert only tried four. While it meant less wings, it also meant the Late Show host had to get to the hottest wings a lot quicker.

Colbert looked calm to start, and when asked about his preference between New York-style and Chicago-style pizza, he had the wherewithal to say, “I like the crispness of a New York slice. That’s pizza. Chicago deep dish is a baby pool filled with sauce and cheese.”

By the time they got to the third wing, which was Da’ Bomb and its 135,600 Scovilles, Colbert felt the heat, saying with a nervous chuckle, “This feeling I have in my mouth right now, is what I was afraid of from the beginning.”

The wing challenge even got Colbert to curse a couple times, which the network probably didn’t love, but was hilarious nonetheless. Stephen even jumped out of his chair, losing his mind, as the crowd just anxiously watched.

The entire interview was gold, and the courageous talk show host made it through the four wings, even if he did lose all sense of reality.

Even With Strategy, T-Pain Immediately Regrets This Hot Wing Challenge

If there’s anything we’ve learned from watching First We Feast’s Hot Ones challenges, it’s that there is no sound strategy for escaping the unbearable heat coming off those wings.

Their latest guest, T-Pain, went into the challenge a little cocky, doing a couple of Google searches, and feeling that he he knew what to do in order to take down the 10-wing challenge like a champ.

While he actually did get through the challenge pretty well, it didn’t go as smoothly as he hoped. The hip-hop singer had some nonsensical strategy that had to do with milk, and it didn’t help much, as he was spazzing out, and not thinking straight by the end of it.

As always, it’s fun watching celebrities suffer through the spicy burn, and it’s even sweeter watching T-Pain struggle, in autotune.
