We all know Terry Crews is famous for his myriad of comedic roles stretching over two decades, but the imposing actor is actually full of surprises. He has a chat to the guys at First We Feast about some of the periods in his life before he was a well-known actor, from his days as an athlete to how he got his first big-break.
While Terry and host Sean Evans are chatting though, they’re taking a little tour of some of the spiciest hot sauces known to man, and while they start out quite slowly, it doesn’t take long before they’re ramping up the heat and Terry has to dig deep to keep up.
There’s actually a measurement for how hot or spicy something is, it’s called the Scoville scale and measures hotness in terms of Scoville Heat Units (SHU) – and some of the sauces they test push the limits of what would be considered safe to eat (we think). A chili pepper grown specifically to be the hottest in the world, called the ‘Carolina Reaper’, tops out at 1,6 million SHUs. We’re not going to spoil anything, but let’s just say that Terry has a run-in with a sauce that may or may not be hotter than the famous Reaper.
Can Terry get through all the wings and make it to the end, or is he forced to tap out due to hotness overload?
