If you’re not familiar with the show Hot Ones, here’s a little background. Its host Sean Evans asks guests a series of questions to get them to spill the tea on a variety of subjects, sometimes quite personal. The questions, though, are the easy part as things really get uncomfortable as the guest has to answer while eating a plate of 10 chicken wings that feature progressively hotter spice levels. According to Women’s Health, Teigen shared her experience on a recent episode of The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon saying, “It was bad, the seventh one really got me. Whatever number seven is, it needs to be at the end.”
Teigen was definitely in it to win it, revealing she even had what she thought was a clever strategy that involved trying to lick the hot sauces off the wings. Unfortunately, it didn’t pan out. With true Teigen panache, she owned up to her bad idea, further telling Fallon, “That was a mistake. Because I had to go to the hospital, and then my tongue was stripped, they said. I don’t even know what that means. It was, like, bloody and stripped and I had acid reflux for a long time.” Yikes! Luckily, Teigen and her taste buds have recovered and she is still able to share her cooking secrets with us.
