As part of promoting two new singles from his forthcoming album, platinum-selling teenage musician Shawn Mendes guested on “Hot Ones,” a show run by food-meets-pop culture site “First We Feast.”
Host Sean Evans calls it a show with hot questions and even hotter wings, and staying true to his word, he made Shawn eat chicken wings spiced up with sauces of ascending heat levels while trying his best to answer the interview questions. After heaps of deep breathing, blowing, swearing and drinking water and milk in between, he made it to the spiciest end but by then, he looked like a melted candle whose flame is almost extinguished. Through it all, he was cute AF!
While doing the challenge, Shawn talked about his Canadian roots, how Ed Sheeran inspired him to learn guitar on his own, Justin Bieber’s ice hockey skills, guitar-store etiquette, his Mendes army and the stuff that he can sing about now that he couldn’t in his past two albums.
