Eddie Huang is the latest guest to grace the stage of Hot Ones.First We Feast’s flagship interview show features guests attempting to answer questions while they eat absurdly hot chicken wings. Huang, a noted Irritable Bowel Syndrome sufferer, dives headfirst into the challenge, starting with the spiciest wings available. The Baohaus founder and Double Cup Love author taps out after just two wings and three minutes in. But once he mops his brow and regains his composure somewhat, Huang opens up about his relationship with Anthony Bourdain, critics, race’s role in food media, and Future, among other topics. He even gives a solid platform for his NYC mayoral campaign. Vote Huang.
The episode is a must-watch for fans of food, TV, hip-hop and all of the above. Check it out and be sure to pick up Huang’s latest book here.
