LOS ANGELES — Marvel star Tessa Thompson was brought to tears while becoming the latest sacrificial lamb to appear on the popular YouTube series “Hot Ones” to answer questions for 20 minutes while masticating a plate of spicy hot wings. The 38-year-old Valkyrie actress joined “First We Feast” host Sean Evans to promote her new film “Thor: Love and Thunder” starring Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman. She also confabulated her affinity for Shakespeare and why Elizabeth Olsen is her favorite “Hot Ones” episode. However, all hell broke loose when Tessa ingested a wing drenched in Kansas City’s “Da’Bomb Beyond Insanity Hot Sauce” which contains a hellish 135,600 Scoville units. First, she couldn’t catch her breath. Then she waved a red hankie. Then she belted out a mighty Tarzan roar. “This is fully clearing my sinuses,” Tessa said as tears rolled down her cheek. “When does it go away?”

Tessa is the ex-girlfriend of Kansas City native Janelle Monáe.

The prepossessing redbone appeared as a backup dancer in the singer’s “Yoga” music video.

“Thor: Love and Thunder” is now available in theaters.

Watch Tessa contend with the wings of death.

  1. The hottest lady on the planet eating the hottest wings 🔥just🔥tooooo hot

  2. Kudos to Sean. I couldn’t sit across from her. I would be a blithering idiot. She is so smart and beautiful.

  3. Can I just say…I’m so glad that Hot Ones is back to having Sean and his guests in the same room.

    I tried to watch some Hot Ones interviews from 2020 and just couldn’t take it

  4. still with this “social distancing” nonsense? Get a slightly longer table instead of those huge 2 circulars.

  5. You want to know where Shakespeare really, really fit well? It was in the movie Romeo and Juliet featuring Leonardo DiCaprio in the 90s. That right there was an absolute masterpiece.

  6. Sean was giggling like a little girl this episode…think he has a crush on Tessa 🙈

  7. She’s really cool, but does she have a retainer or something? I feel like she has a strange speech impediment or accent but maybe could be due to a device in her mouth??

  8. I just didn’t care for anything she said or her as a person. I will watch this movie she’s promoting once it becomes available at a clean 600mb+ When I do watch I will glare at her with contempt.

  9. BORING. Sadly this is one of the most dull interviews on Hot Ones in long time

  10. I feel like you could easily condense this show with just (Da’Bomb)
    One wing
    One question
    Timeless reaction

  11. you can tell she is no stranger to hot sauce….also as a side note – she is beautiful…not in the physical way (well that too) – her emotion and behavior and just her personality….

  12. She freaky asf I love all the times she says mouth haha west world is great because of Tessa

  13. I think I heard the next leading lady on the new Tarzan…🤩😉😎

  14. Tessa is awesome. What she said at the end, that her family was psyched for her being on the show says a lot about how big the show really is now n well deserved of course. She killed it btw 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

  15. It’s always a pleasure to watch a marvel movie, love and thunder was a bit of a disappointment tho. It was more like eating a bag of chettos rather than the steak dinner I was hoping for.
