Padma Lakshmi Gracefully Destroys Spicy Wings | Hot Ones

  • Published on Jan 19, 2017
  • The wait is over, Hot Ones fans! Sean Evans and the wings of death are back in action for another season, and we're kicking things off with an extra-special guest who is practically synonymous with spice: the one, the only Padma Lakshmi. The Top Chef host, model, and author of The Encyclopedia of Spices and Herbs goes wing-for-wing and dab-for-dab with Sean while discussing everything from her friendship with Shaq, to the most appetizing animal testicles in the game.

    #Suggestion - Do a meta episode where you show different celeb responses to the same level of heat -- Padma's reaction here to a 15,000 skovill is "This is child's play". I imagine others have had a quite different reaction, at this level or even much less.

    'Hot Ones' not just referring the sauces in _this_ episode. Amiright. ;)
    No, but in all seriousness, when I learned Padma was a model, I was like 'There's no greater mine-able resource in the universe'; her beauty, class, sensuality. You just want lose yourself in her prettiness.
    I'm rambling. Time to shut up. lol

    3:02 "a restaurateur, and not an actual chef, in the nappa finale, had bad manners" For her to be saying that and be as rude as she actually is, especially on other people's shows- that man had to be quite rude.

    Sean's comments about marketers pretending their sauces are much hotter than they really are is pretty funny considering he now claims Last Dab is over 2,000,000 SHU which is obviously not true.
