Personalities, confessions, fried chicken… and overly spicy sauces. It’s a concept Hot, a new talk show broadcast on YouTube Studio Bagel and hosted by Kyan Khojandi. For the first release of this adaptation of the American concept, the actor hosts his colleague and friend Jonathan Cohen.
The idea is simple: a former actor Short interviews personalities around a table with fried chicken pieces and ten hot sauces, ranked from weakest to strongest. With each question, the effectiveness of the sauces increases on the Scoville scale, which ranks peppers from capsicum to the hottest habanero pepper in the world.
