The question: "Could the contestants handle 10 progressively hotter sauces?" By wing number 5 (Pain 100%) we knew our event was going exactly as planned. As contestants were running away from the tables for their beer or milk, anything to dull the PAIN, everyones mouth was on fire! This was the experience they all came for. Spectators thoroughly enjoyed seeing contestants succumb to the heat. When the smoke cleared and the rubble settled, we were surprisingly left with 5 champions!
The new question: "Could the contestants and past champions handle hotter sauces than last year?" With the added bonus of clear weather for the event date in 2019, The Hot Ten went off without a hitch. We expanded our contestant field and more champions finished this year than last. The hosts noticed a large spike in champions, so we took notes and will be changing the rules for the future.
We can not be more excited for this year's event, the interest we received in just a couple days was incredible. Our social media and email is buzzing with people looking to know more! We can't wait to put on the best event and raise some money for charity!
We won't beat around the bush here, we LOVE "Hot Ones", its an awesome Youtube show. We designed our event as an homage to the show. We carefully picked 10 sauces from 108 that the show had used. We chose some "friendlier" ones (that don the tables at your favorite greasy spoons), some "moderate" ones to wake a few of the challengers up, and a few “burn your face off” type sauces. If you haven't seen "Hot Ones" yet, follow this link. Remember to like and subscribe.
We decided to donate to The Baby Spirit Fundation in 2021. The Baby Spirit Foundation is a nonprofit organization that helps families that have experienced pregnancy or infant loss. Their focus is to provide honorable funeral services, education & emotional support for those impacted by the loss of their baby. As we plan for our future events we don’t want to be set on one specific charity, we would like to consider a different charity to donate to every year. We appreciate suggestions, so tell us what’s important to you.
We would love for your company to sponsor our event. If you could help us with the costs if any business would like to donate to our charity of choice we would greatly appreciate that.
Coming up with a crazy idea like this could only come from a person who has a love for hot sauce and a big heart. Sean's love extends to wanting to see others feel like their faces are on fire.
Let's not forget the first year how Sean was talking a big game beforehand and then he puked on #5.
Kevin brought a whole different level of crazy to the table when creating this event. When it came time, Kevin got the wheels moving and helped create an amazing event. Kevin was ready to go and brought this event beyond many levels of expectations.
Andrew provides a different level of intellect. When it came to tough decisions or just making sure the other two weren't letting their imaginations run wild, Andrew offered a different perspective and maybe even a better way to do some things.
Although Andrew is a creator, he doesn't like spicy things, so we are just proud he has participated in the last two events. He's a CHAMPION in our eyes.
