We’ve been very patient, and now it’s finally here:
The season premiere of Hot Ones just dropped, babeyyyyyyy!!
Season 11 opened with Academy Award-nominee and master of like, every regional American accent, Margot Robbie. Unfortunately, though, she’s definitely not a master of hot sauces. Before digging into the first wing of the gauntlet, Margot informs us that she “has the palette of a four-year-old,” and judging by the sheer terror on her face and nervous laughter that she is not acting.
“I’m so scared!” Be brave, Margot! Be brave.
As she foretold, by the third wing Margot’s starting to feel the heat. However, she amazingly (and unexpectedly, to be honest) holds it together and rallies like a goddamn champ. I don’t think I’ve ever rooted this hard for any contestant on Hot Ones, but can you blame me?! This is just a classic underdog story! Having to be the first poor soul through the new sauce gauntlet is a feat unto itself, and as someone who went into this hating and fearing hot sauce, she absolutely gets extra props.
