Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

Hot Ones is one of our favorite series, as we love to watch our favorite celebrities tackle some super hot wings. It is time for this show to move over, though. Reese Witherspoon is here with a whole new challenge that is sure to have viewers laughing.

The actress issued herself a challenge to eat three different levels of spice of Hot Hattie B’s Chicken in Nashville. The reactions that she had to the hot chicken are too funny.

“I also don’t like spicy food so I just want to preface this whole thing by saying I’m scared,” she said before the taste test took place.

We can relate. The idea of consuming chicken that is advertised as being very, very hot is terrifying. What happens when you start eating but it’s too delicious to stop?

“We’re gonna take it home and see if I can handle it. Here we go,” she says when the challenge is about to kick off. Our hearts went out to her at that time. The chicken eating challenge included the following three flavors: mild (okay, we can get into that), spicy (now we’re getting a bit scared), and “crazy spicy.” Yikes.

“Oh, that’s not bad at all — wait, hold on. The spice is later. Hold on . . . OK, that’s good. I can handle that,” she said of the mild. This chicken was deemed to be good but not quite the best.

The normal spicy was the one that Reese enjoyed most and we are not too stunned there. “OK, it’s a little spicy, but not bad, not crazy. It’s like salty cayenne pepper — really yummy,” she said.

“Oh my god that’s so hot. Oh my god, that’s crazy. It feels hotter. It’s starting to get hotter . . . That was like 2 minutes of insane hotness. Do I look flushed?” she worried, as she tried her best to tackle the “crazy spicy.”
