(PG-13: language) In the latest episode of First We Feast’s “Hot Ones” series, host Sean Evans chats with popular YouTube personality Philip DeFranco about his life and long YouTube career as they both suffer through ten progressively spicy hot sauce-covered chicken wings.
“Philip DeFranco is O.G. YouTube royalty, and his eponymous show is a paradigm-shifting mix of news and opinion tackling everything from politics, to celebrity gossip, to the crypto-currency boom. But what does a decade-plus on the platform mean if he can’t handle his spicy wings?! By popular demand (i.e., an insane amount of comments demanding his presence at the table), Philly D finally steps into the Hot Ones terror dome to go head to head with our bald protagonist, Sean Evans. As they fend off the Scoville onslaught, the duo gets into the weeds of YouTube history, unpackages the problems with contemporary media, and reveals photographic evidence of a bygone era when Sean actually had a six pack. And that’s not all—with the weight of YouTube on his back, DeFranco boldly sets out to go where no guest has gone before. Don’t miss this piece of Hot Ones history.”
