Taraji P. Henson Attempts the ‘Hot Ones’ Spicy Wing Challenge

(PG-13: language) In the season five premiere of First We Feast’s “Hot Ones” series, host Sean Evans interviews actress Taraji P. Henson as they both suffer through ten progressively spicy hot sauce-covered chicken wings.

“Taraji P. Henson — whose roles include bad-b*tch extraordinaire Cookie Lyon on Empire — becomes the first brave celebrity to battle the all-new wings of death. But not everything goes according to plan: After breaking down her Mary J. Blige–approved chili recipe and explaining what Cookie would make of Cardi B, Taraji pulls one of the most unorthodox moves in Hot Ones history, calling in some extra muscle—and a little whiskey—to tame the rising flames.”
