His permanent role at Complex led to the creation of Hot Ones by Christopher Schonberger. The show began running in March 2015 and has continued to run till date with Sean Evans at the helm of the show as celebrities from all sectors, ranging from sports to music to film, come and try out their ability to eat some of the hottest chicken wings in the world.

The channel, FirstWeFeast, which hosts the Hot Ones web series has over 6 million subscribers and over 880 million views, which places it as one of the most lucrative channels in terms of ad revenue estimated to be earning as much as $113.5 thousand monthly with an annual income of $1.4 million.
