Matthew McConaughey will find himself in the hot seat during this week's episode of "Hot Ones."


McConaughey will join host Sean Evans in the popular show known for the tagline "the show with hot questions, and even hotter wings," at 10 a.m. Thursday on YouTube.

Hot Ones was created by Evans in 2015 and has since aired over 190 episodes. The show continued airing after the pandemic but in recent episodes, guests have filmed from home.

The premise of the show involves Evans interviewing his guests while eating 10 wings with different sauces, ranging in hotness. Throughout the show, guests typically begin to feel the heat of the wings, and struggle to focus on the questions asked.

All the hot sauces featured in Hot Ones are rated in Scoville Heat Units ranging from 1,700 to over 2 million. Although water and milk is provided to offset the spicy wings, some have not been able to finish all the wings. If a guest isn't able to finish all 10 wings, they can find themselves in the show's Hall of Shame.
