Pedro Pascal turns to ice cubes for relief during ‘Hot Ones’ appearance
Although Pedro Pascal started the show stating he was comfortable with spicy food as a young man, his need for ice cubes by the end shows that may no longer be the case.
Pedro Pascal is the man of the moment, as the internet can’t seem to get enough of him.
The 47-year-old is starring in some of the biggest shows of the moment, including ‘The Last of Us’. The hit series is gearing up for its Season 1 finale, which premieres on Sunday, March 12, at 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT on HBO and HBO Max.
Fans can’t seem to get enough of the show, as last week’s Episode 8 earned the series’ highest viewership since premiering in January, with 8.1 million viewers.
He’s also starring in the hit Disney+ show ‘The Mandalorian’, which recently returned for its third season.
Pascal appears on ‘Hot Ones’
With his popularity showing no signs of declining, Pascal appeared as a guest on the latest episode of ‘Hot Ones’, the hit YouTube series that features celebrities eating 10 hot wings covered in increasingly spicier hot sauces while answering questions.
Pascal kicked off his appearance by stating he was able to deal with spicy food when he was younger thanks to his young organs, but he isn’t sure if that’s the case now that he’s older.
“I wonder how much of this will get caught on my astonishing moustache,” he adds while looking straight at the camera.
Pascal makes his way through the challenge while discussing his various performances, Mexican food, and even his musical tastes, though he makes it clear he’s struggling when he gets to wing number five.
That’s when he joked with host Sean Evans that he should gouge his eyes out like in his famous death scene as Oberyn Martell on ‘Game of Thrones’.
When Pascal gets to the 10th and hottest wing, Da’ Bomb, he lets it be known he’s struggling with the heat: “You tell me I’m doing well [at the beginning], and then you try to kill me.
“Can somebody step in here and let me bite into their flesh? Can somebody give me a cup of blood?”
From there Pascal can’t hide his discomfort, rubbing ice cubes on his forehead while telling himself that he can’t vomit.
“I’m learning about where all my nerve endings are around my lips,” he says, along with a some burps and sighs. “[My mouth] is scorched earth.”
