  • Regarding the Bobby Lee episode: Did he or didn't he? What do you think?

    • Yes

    • I think he did, but that's comedic power.

    • @Jade Cones Yeah..messed up his drawers🤣

    • You need to Get Owen Wilson on this show now to see if he can say "wow" more than her.

    • Do Mr.Beast

  • The Nardwuar of food shows! He’d be a wild guest to have 🤷🏻‍♂️😎

  • Fina looks like some random chick you'd hook up with from a club in the 90s

  • Imagine if Twixie and Katya did this (out of drag)

  • I would be panicking.

  • Please have Bobby Lee on again

  • After getting my second COVID vaccine shot and experience the hot/cold experience, I can better empathize with the hot and cold remark.

  • I see Awkwafina but I hear Lea Remini.

  • We need a Druski2funny hot ones ASAP.

  • The Bobby Lee sound at the end😂😂😂

  • God dammit, I'm laughing! I never fucking laugh, god dammit! Thx though.

  • Nora lum is so lovey, super super talented. I really wish her all the best!

  • I can't wait to see Donald trump eating hot sauce.

  • You should interview Crystal Geyser next, followed by Al Hambra, and finally Duh Sani. Just interview all the fake named people

  • I was just wondering who she was with a name like awkawfina. She is an actress *faceplam*

  • Sean is hands down,one of THE BEST interviews ever!

  • Can't tell if she's squinting or sleepwalking

  • I like Awkwafina is as much a host here as Sean.

  • Lucy Liu next!!

  • I love her little hands

  • more hyped for shang-chi than raya...

  • she's the best , thanks Awkwa , Farewell was a great film , your best to date....

  • Her name sounds like water POG

  • So Many Ads Holy Shit

  • God, I love her so much.

  • Cucumber

  • I feel like Sean Evans 1st he’s amazing and super hot and he really genuinely cares about everyone he interviewed and he has so much gratitude and knowledge it’s so impressive 🥰🥰🥰

  • I loved Homeward Bound. I do think Bobby Lee sharted.

  • 16:50 da bomb

  • talks like steve o

  • "You know how people make fun of the accordion and bagpipes? How did that relate to the trumpet?" Bro the trumpet is one of the most respected orchestral instruments ever. Sean just has a way with words to disguise that one.

  • Awkwafina and the Legend of the 10 Wings

  • Do Mr.Beast

  • DOA. Terrible timing for Shang-Chi. Good luck.

  • Awkwafina's mom was friends with my parents. I didn't know a lot about Korean culture but her mom taught me. I hope I can thank Awkwafina some day & let her know what a difference her mom had on my life.

  • I used to go to Awkwafina's grandma's restaurant. I remember seeing her there doing hw and sometimes my sister would color with her. Who knew she'd become famous? :-)

  • Love Love Love Awkwafina.

  • The "oh, okay!" at 14:57 is the absolute best.

  • No talk about a season 2 of Nora from queens?!

  • “Awkwafina” makes me embarrassed to be Asian

  • Her voice is so sexy😍😍

  • Why does she look and sound like Miley Cyrus

  • They should put a little bit of Hot sauce in the air pocket of the shoe. :P

  • All the love

  • this might of been the best one yet

  • Yawn.

  • Have you ever had Jack Black as an guest?

  • Definitely one of the best and most interesting interviews of the whole show.

  • I cannot read that name

  • Who?

  • I’m glad she’s doing successful, her voice alone has loads of potential

  • heyyyyy get Anna Kendrick do this, she's got a new Netflix show to promote, she's comedic but also intelligent talker

  • She’s also going to be in Shang chi

  • Anybody else like Silk (unsweetened) Cashew Milk to mitigate sauce heat? I found it works really well for me.

  • she could be in air bud as the adopted child lol

  • Awkwafina is so damn beautiful I'm stunned by her sublime beauty.

  • Aquafina, interesting brand name.

  • I love her voice.

  • “Bok bok bitch!” said the Da Bomb chicken wing

  • Great video. Are the spicy shoes edible? 😅

  • legend

  • I love watching Hot Ones but holy crap did someone get crazy with the ad breaks in this one.

  • You can tell Awkwafina has a background in interviewing because she actually asks Sean questions. I don't think a lot of celebs think to do that

    • @Lĭfú no its not just her personality... she had her own talk show before

    • I think that's just her personality.

  • Finally with her real accent....

  • BOUN GOES THE DYNAMITE!!!!

  • Her voice reminds me of scarlet johannson's

  • What a stereotypical played out American Asian persona. Christ, this country ruins everything.

  • In love with her voice.
