Event Details

How it Works

Welcome to the Hot Seat!

Its basic premise involves guests being interviewed by the host over a platter of increasingly spicy chicken wings. It can be played individually or in teams, and the competition style varies as well!


The format involves the host and guests eating ten chicken wings (or an alternative if the guest is vegetarian/vegan), each prepared with a progressively hotter hot sauce.

The first sauce presented is relatively mild such as Sriracha, which has a rating of 2,200 Scoville units. The guests are encouraged to put a minuscule extra amount of The Last Dab on the final wing; they are told this is not required, but most guests opt to do so even when already struggling with the heat of the previous wings.

After each wing, the host asks the guest an interview question. As the wings get hotter, the guest typically begins to display the effects of eating the spicier wings and the interview becomes less focused on the guest and more so on the struggle to finish the wings. The guests are also provided glasses of water and milk to counteract the effect of the wings.

The standard event is everyone eating ten wings each, but in some events, only five wings are given to each guest. Guests who successfully finish all ten wings are allowed to promote their upcoming projects.

The questions can vary from trivia to truth or dare to many more.

Select kits are available.

“We needed something fresh for our weekly happy hour to keep the event fun and interesting. Teamland brought everyone together from around the country to play new games and video chat all in one place. The Teamland experience kept team mates engaged, entertained, casually competitive and most importantly everyone had a great time!”

"Teamland provided a great virtual team building experience for my colleagues. Bingo with a side of trivia was fun for everyone, and Najeeb was a very engaging host. It was great to have the experience contained within a single platform. Looking forward to booking another event with Teamland in the near future!"

"We were looking for options to host a team social party and didn't know what to do. Teamland not only had several options, but they took to the care to respond to me directly and find out what's best for my company. I really appreciate how quickly Teamland got this event planned and running. They took care of all the details and our team simply showed up and played. The team loved the experience and I'd highly recommend Teamland to others!"
