From there, Beyoncé’s appearance on Hot Ones, as parodied by Maya Rudolph on Saturday Night Live, goes off the rails. Beyoncé calls her hairstylist onto the set and demands that he stuff ice cubes under her wig, until her publicist walks up to nix the idea. She says to Evans, “You will not film B taking her wig off. Is that clear, bald man?” When Beyonce eventually walks off the set, her agent steps up and orders all recordings destroyed.
First We Feast, producers of Hot Ones and other food-related content, jumped on the comments on Saturday Night Live’s YouTube channel to express admiration and appreciation for the sketch: “Never thought a YouTube chicken wing talk show hosted by a bald guy would make it this far. Thank you Maya, Mikey, and SNL. SO GOOD!!!”
The real Sean Evans posted his SNL moment on Twitter, and his fans offered congratulations. “You’ve officially made it. Is there any higher height to ascend to,” @NatWu tweeted. Twitter user Brian Johnson commented, “This was one of those sketches that still has you laughing 1/2 hr later.” No word on what Queen Bee thought of this nugget of SNL gold. But she might want to check the Scoville number on that hot sauce in her bag that she sings about (via Eater).
