Thomas Middleditch is best known for playing Richard Hendricks in the HBO show, Silicon Valley. However, he started his career as a performer in improv theater.
So, while embarking on the Hot Ones spicy wings challenge, Middleditch reverts back to doing improv. As well as taking about his career and starring role in Silicon Valley.
I’ve watched quite a few of these spicy wings challenges now, and I’d say Middleditch is somewhere in the middle in terms of his capacity to cope with the spiciness.
He clearly doesn’t eat spicy food all that often, unlike some guests. But Middleditch holds his own, managing to get through all of the wings lathered in hot sauce.
