WATCH: Jenna Ortega Doesn’t Even Flinch in Latest ‘Hot Ones’ Episode

Jenna Ortega (Scream VI) was feeling the heat as the latest guest on the YouTube talk show Hot Ones – and she killed it. No, seriously, it was a Top 5 Hot Ones performance of all time.

Ortega took her seat in front of host Sean Evans with a lot of self-confidence since she is someone who enjoys hot sauce. “I’m feeling pretty confident, honestly,” Ortega said prior to eating. “I haven’t been nervous at all. Typically, I can handle my stuff, so I’m curious.”

The first wing (the least hot of the 10) didn’t faze her. She described it as a “sweet, little baby wing.” She added, “I come from a strong family. They’ve got strong taste buds, so I think we’ll be good.”

After a bite of the second wing, Ortega declared: “Too easy. I don’t want to get too confident, but at the same time … I feel like around [wing] No. 6 is when people start getting weird.”

By wing No. 8, flavored with a sauce called “Da Bomb Beyond Insanity” Ortega still wasn’t fazed. This wing is usually the one where guests start sweating and chugging milk, but Ortega took it like a champ. She even smiled for the camera although you could sort of tell she was in a little pain. She later said “Da Bomb” made her feel “vulnerable.”

Ortega ended her run on Hot Ones with the 10th and final wing by taking a bite and reacting with the words, “That’s delicious,” which made Evans drop his hands to the table in disbelief. She even takes a second bite of the wing for good measure.

If we weren’t in love with Jenna Ortega already, her appearance on Hot Ones made it nearly impossible not to be now.

Scream VI hits theaters on March 10, 2023.
