First We Feast: Matthew McConaughey is relegated to loud grunting on “Hot Ones”

McConaughey is tested big-time.

Blog King, Mass Appeal

LOS ANGELES — Texas Longhorns alumnus Matthew McConaughey had to grunt it out while becoming the latest sacrificial lamb to appear on the popular YouTube series “Hot Ones” to answer questions for 20 minutes in conjunction with masticating a plate of spicy hot wings. While sedentary, the 50-year-old thespian joined “First We Feast” host Sean Evans virtually to confabulate on everything from what makes his romantic comedies so special to how helpful New Yorkers really are.

Matthew also discussed his male stripper role in “Magic Mike” and, believe it or not, he once lost a lawsuit against a skin cream company while in high school. However, all hell broke loose when Matthew ingested a wing drenched in “Da’Bomb Beyond Insanity Hot Sauce” which contains a hellish 135,600 Scoville units.

“Da’Bomb Beyond Insanity with a caution… Ok, you start to notice that these get to be a little less about taste and they start to go right to your tonsils a little bit,” he said while grunting repeatedly. “And I don’t know if it matters what the hell we’re putting them on.”

Matthew just released his new memoir “Greenlights” and it’s on sale for $32.00 on Amazon.

Will he survive all ten wings?

  1. i dunno man, i cannot seem to get into these zoom call episodes. i know it’s nobody’s fault and they’re just being safe, but the production quality on this show has been so good for so long, seeing it like this just really takes me out of it.

  2. Joshua Richardz

    This was one of my favorite episodes

  3. As someone who’s only seen him in more serious movies. He’s surprisingly a chill guy.


  5. This might be the first episode where I’m literally saying “COME ON MAN. YOU CAN DO IT.”

  6. Lesley Plunkett

    I know some of these episodes during COVID have not been getting the views as pre COVID and I don’t know why. These are probably some of the best they have done and I think this ranks as one of my favorites. I have always been a Matthew McConaughey fan but what I love most is the positive attitude he exudes and zest for life. He could be talking about a bicycle pump and make is sound exciting. I had a bad week and just I guess feeling overwhelmed in general and was feeling sorry for myself. Listening to Matthew always reminds me to get over it and get out there and live each day and squeeze the most out of life you can.

  7. I honestly feel that the funniest and most memeable reaction to Da Bomb: Idris Elba… hands down lol the man just kept licking his fingers! 😂 like “ima power through this… cough cough what the…” lol

    Matthew and I actually had an affair back in the 70s. I had to break up with him because that’s what I did. Amazing man. Very funny and he could hold his breath more than 20 times in a week. I miss him ❤️

  34. Reece Williams

    You can really tell when Sean really likes someone by his smiling-trying-not-to-laugh-out-loud faces, and McConaughey clearly does. When Sean likes someone, it makes me like that person, too (not that I didn’t already stan McConaughey).

  37. Still waiting for someone to eat The Bomb and go “That’s doo doo, baby!”
