Chrissy Teigen ate so much hot sauce in this interview that she needed medical attention
Have you ever eaten so much hot sauce you felt like dying? Chrissy Teigen has. In fact, the model consumed so much in an interview in September that she genuinely needed medical attention the next day.
The mother-of-two appeared on First We Feast's Hot Ones: a show in which the interviewee and the interviewer eat increasingly spicy hot wings as the questions go on - and, needless to say, things got pretty heated...
As the show started, Chrissy proclaimed that she thought she might survive the challenge, as she was a 'wing freak.' She stated: "I’m a wing freak, I’m a hot sauce freak, I’m a hot wing freak. I feel like we’re gonna be okay, but who knows? I’ve seen some episodes."
The odds weren't in her favour from the beginning though, as she admitted on Twitter the night before that her tongue was "raw" from eating Ruffles. "My tongue is raw from a night of Ruffles. I love salt but holy shit are Ruffles getting saltier!?" she posted.
What really put her on the wrong path could have been how she ate the wings though. Part of the way through the interview, Chrissy got full, so asked if - instead of eating them - she could douse the wings in sauce and lick it off.
Was this her downfall? Maybe so. All we know is that the next day, the 32-year-old tweeted saying: "I did hot ones yesterday. Now I’m at my throat doctor", alongside a photo of her pouting.
Later on, she lamented the extent of her pain when a fan shared her own story of hot sauce doom. A Twitter user named Amanda "My neighbour brought over Da Bomb for me to try ... I barely had a drop on my pinky and about died. My mouth and lips were on fire 10 min after I ate it. Idk how you guys eat the wings after that sauce. [sic]"
Chrissy replied confessing the extent of the damage to her body, saying: "That’s the one that got me. my tongue is literally ripped. [sic]" Tweeting another fan who began the hashtag "#PrayForChrissy", she also stated: "My eyebrows have gone rogue. My tongue is too large for my mouth."
Luckily though, if anyone is going to take it on the chin, it's Chrissy Teigen. When the full interview was released on October 4, the cookbook author posted admitted that, despite all of the trauma that came along with the interview, it was still the best she'd ever had.
"It took me two weeks of CBD pills to tame the constant twitching of my eyebrows after “da bomb” - but I’ve never had a better interview. I love you guys," she wrote, with a link to the video also included in her post.
