foodbeast.com – Now that Adam Richman is done with Man vs. Food, the world gets treated every now and then to some crazy insights on what transpired behind the scenes.
In a recent interview with Strictly Dumpling’s Mike Chen, Richman dished on his battle against the 420 Hot Wings at Munchies in Sarasota, FL. It was the only spicy challenge he lost, but it also could’ve done Richman in. Turns out that the chef who made the wings admitted to putting an entire bottle of ghost chili extract onto the wings, making the challenge much hotter than expected.
“What happens is your nose swells, your mucus passages swell in your nose, and your throat swells. So it was like I can’t breathe, my tears burn, they are pretty intense… That was agony… I don’t want to feel the way I did that day.”
When it comes to spicy food, the former Man vs. Food host also admitted that habanero was a “kryptonite” of his. He alluded to a habanero fritter challenge where he thought he was okay at first, and then later felt like he got “kicked on the inside of a stomach by a mule.”
Richman also dished on some of the behind-the-scenes details of his new Cooking Channel show, Secret Eats, and how one country almost didn’t let him and his team leave.
I remember watching that episode and I was sweating just watching it but yo that chef is fucked up for that one looool you can’t just throw in a whole bottle of Ghost Chili Extract on some wings dog
