‘Hot Ones’ Will Be Live In Chicago This Summer and You Can Win Tickets to Attend

Good news for the Hot Ones fans – Sean Evans’ viral celebrity talk show is coming to Chicago for a live episode this summer, although the exact date and location are yet unknown. 

Stella Artois and First We Feast’s HOT ONES™, the celebrity talk show and pop culture sensation known for inspiring many of the internet’s most viral entertainment moments, officially announced a partnership that’s sure to spice up the summer. First We Feast is teaming up with Stella Artois to bring the popular YouTube sensation to our town for its first-ever live event later this year. Later this summer, First We Feast and Stella Artois will host a one-of-a-kind Hot Ones event in Chicago. The episode will take place at an “iconic location in the city,” according to a press release.

Hot Ones promises plenty of celebrity guest appearances

No lineup has been revealed yet for the live event, but Hot Ones is promising plenty of “celebrity guest appearances,” plus an unnamed Stella Artois Global Brand Ambassador.
Stella Artois is bringing fans into the experience with this event, hosted by Sean Evans and featuring an iconic Stella Artois Global Brand Ambassador, alongside other celebrities. Fans of First We Feast and Stella Artois can enter for a chance to attend by visiting https://www.stellaartois.com/HotOnesLive. The 10 grand prize winners will receive travel and accommodations for two, along with two seats to the event. Entrants must be 21 years of age or older, and the sweepstakes end on June 3.

At the epicenter of both food and entertainment, Stella Artois’ partnership with Hot Ones builds on the brand’s ongoing mission to bring people together over everyday meals, this time through one of the most consumed items in bars: wings. And where would be better to do that than in Chicago? The meatpacking capital of America which has line-inducing bistros, food trucks, pizzerias, hot dog stands, burger shops, steakhouses and more, ready to seduce everyone with the best food the city has to offer. 

Hosted by Sean Evans, Hot Ones is a celebrity talk show with a twist—guests must eat chicken wings doused in increasingly spicy hot sauces while answering questions from Evans. The show has produced countless viral moments from stars, including Jennifer Lawrence, Sydney Sweeney and Gordon Ramsay. To date, there have been 23 seasons and more than 325 episodes. Last year, The Hot Ones menu, which features the famous spicy wings, hot sauces and sides, was made permanently available for delivery throughout NYC and Philadelphia, other locations being scheduled to be added.

The partnership will deliver first-of-its-kind experiences and fire things up

All summer long, Stella Artois will serve as the Official Beer of Hot Ones with brand integration in five Hot Ones episodes featuring some of the most relevant names in culture today. Beyond in-episode integration and custom content, Stella Artois and Hot Ones will deliver first-of-its-kind experiences and fire things up at venues across the United States.
“Both Stella Artois and Hot Ones thrive at the convergence of culture and sharing moments over a meal, so investing in this partnership made a lot of sense,” said Chris Jones, Group Vice President of Marketing, Premium Brands at Anheuser-Busch. “With this partnership, we are excited to be part of the cultural conversation and reach more audiences in bars around the country, where we will continue to reinforce our reputation as one of the highest quality, sessionable beers in the market.”

Hot One special featuring actor and rapper Ludacris, already available on youtube

Stella Artois will also sponsor five Hot Ones specials throughout the summer, starting with the release of a new episode today featuring rapper, actor and Stella Artois Brand Ambassador, Ludacris.

So spicy food lovers, even if you can’t handle Da Bomb, you may soon have the opportunity to watch in person as someone famous attempts to do so for your entertainment.

“We have loved bringing the Hot Ones experience to fans across the country as a result of our partnership with Stella Artois, from custom episodes featuring new iconic guests to bar activations at major cultural events,” said First We Feast General Manager and Hot Ones Creator, Chris Schonberger. “It’s important to us to continually deliver special experiences for our fanbase and we have a ton of fun pushing the creative boundaries with our friends at Stella Artois.”

Stella Artois will continue to bring the heat throughout the summer, delivering experiences worth more to fans nationwide with its Let’s Do Dinner event platform. The platform merges world-class cuisine with partnerships to deliver memorable gatherings and authentic connections over a meal. Stella Artois fans can stay tuned for more opportunities to dine and connect in cities across the U.S. later this summer. 


About Stella Artois

Stella Artois is proud of its rich Belgian heritage. Stella Artois traces its origins to over 600 years ago, to the Den Hoorn brewery in Leuven, Belgium, founded in 1366. Stella Artois was born as a Holiday gift to the people of Leuven from the brewery. The name “Stella” – meaning “star” in Latin – pays homage to the occasion, and a star has been proudly displayed on Stella Artois bottles ever since.
