      It's certainly gonna be hard to please a food science guy.

      Ehh I guess. Haven’t had them all and maybe not all of them but he is a chef and I’m not

      Sean, you guys make great sauces. I love them. "Da bomb" is heat for the sake of heat.. I might season nothing with it because I would never eat it again. What Alton called crap to me actually tastes pretty okay... other than that my order of sauces differs greatly from his order

    I think I figured out how Sean manages to not react to the sauces. The heat dissipates through his bald head. This is why Alton also doesn’t react.

    He didn't flinch once. I would have been doubled over flushing my mouth with a garden hose.

    Alton is one of my favorite chefs. If you ever want the best apple pie. He is the man. He looks at the science of food. Lol I would have done the same thing with the half and half. I have been watching this for over a year and wondered why not one person had done that. Bravo for the challenge. Bravo to Sean as well for getting him on.

    I am so glad to hear he relaunched good eats when I first heard about it, that show and Iron Chef Japan were my favorite when I was growing up and got me into cooking when I was younger.
    He also has a DVD series that is really good, has AWESOME tips for how to make the stuff and was all done in a real house kitchen too, not a restaurant kitchen.

    I just absolutely love Alton Brown. So into the interview, and he really thinks about and explains the flavours of the sauces without sounding pretentious.

    Can we talk about the fact that they used a terrible example of a food lyric from Eminem. In his song cinderella man he says “my fillet is smokin week get back if the steaks/stakes are high” that is one of my favorite Eminem lines of all time and would have been a much better example of food lyrics in my opinion.

      because he kinda resembles Jesse Eisenberg - physically and personality-wise. I think it's the cockiness haha, but that's just me

    The people: you can't handle this sauce

    Proceeds to drink pepper spray and complain about the lack of kick.

    I love the fact alton opened the bottle, took a swig, just for tasting the sauce! Shows that he actually cares for the taste.. and not just doing this for the sake of the interview or whatnot! Thumbs up Alton! Thumbs up!
    Edit: haha!! Throwing a sauce in the can and then kicking the can its thrown in! Lovely! Lol!

    11:59 The Best question and Answer i've yet seen on this show. Hot Ones itself also owes a debt to the aftermath of 9/11 for giving it a platform to succeed.
