Following its most recent episode which featured Billie Eilish, Shaquille O’Neal is next to answer the call of the popular Hot Ones challenge.

The four-time NBA Champion sits down with Sean Evans to take on the task and promises that he won’t make a face of defeat. The former Orlando Magic recalls blowing $1 million USD within signing to the team back in 1992 – admitting that he wasn’t fully knowledgeable of the tax hits attached to big purchases. Moving forward, Shaq confirms that he gave Paul Pierce his nickname “The Truth” and shares that he holds the record for largest purchase in Walmart history – coming in around $70,000 USD. With a personal gallon of milk by his side, the pro-baller/former rapper also shares a missed opportunity he had in not signing NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys before their prime.

Take a look at the full episode above to see how far Shaq went in the latest Hot Ones challenge and let us know if you think you’d be able to make it to the end.
