In the latest episode of “Sean in the Wild,” Sean Evans from the “Hot Ones” YouTube series teams up with Michael Stevens from the Vsauce YouTube channel to test the effectiveness of some classic and experimental spice-neutralizing remedies, including olive oil, rum, lemon, and more.
“How do you make spicy food less spicy? With nearly 100 Hot Ones episodes under his belt, Sean Evans is in desperate need of an answer. Anxious to ease the pain caused by capsaicin—the active component in chile peppers—Sean enlists the help of Michael Stevens, the creator of the wildly popular science channel, Vsauce. Together, Sean and Michael gargle with olive oil and rinse their mouths out with rum, before combating the Last Dab with a special, capsaicin-busting sundae.”
