For much of the interview, Steve-O was articulate and thoughtful when answering host Sean Evans' questions. He described how he came to "find religion" through the video camera. Instead of having kids to preserve his legacy and/or believing in an immortal afterlife after human death, his vast library of video recordings will be the thing that lives on.
Steve-O also shared the origin story of his friendship with 50 Cent and described his Monday Night Raw experience as "the worst beating he every took."
But it was Evans' final question following a Last Dab-coated chicken wing (vegan wing for Steve-O) that elicited the most exciting response.
"As someone who has experienced every type of physical pain you can possibly think of, what do you think is the best analogy for the 'Wings of Death' on the spectrum of body discomfort," Evans inquired.
Steve-O somewhat strangely interjected began by declaring Gordon Ramsay the king of Hot Ones, calling the foul-mouthed celebrity chef "an absolute maniac on this show. So I'm not willing to be outdone."
He then proceeded to plug his own hot sauce—Steve-O's Hot Sauce for Your Butthole—by drinking nearly an entire bottle before promptly pouring the rest into his eye. How's that for an analogy.
Casual fans might have been shocked, but those who have been following Steve-O's shenanigans through the years will know that he pulled the exact same stunt last year...on Gordon Ramsay's Scrambled, no less.
Staged or organic, Steve-O's closer made for an iconic Hot Ones Season 14 finale. Watch the full episode above.
