Stephen Colbert traveled to the seventh circle of Hell on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. All thanks to Sean Evans who hosts a show called Hot Ones in which he interviews celebrities while feeding them progressively hotter food.
Colbert seemed to enjoy the first two hot sauces he sampled while talking with Evans. But the third hot sauce, "Da' Bomb Beyond Insanity," took things from civil to extreme.
Colbert joked, "So this is what Kim Jong-un is arming his missiles with actually?" But after sampling some the sauce he realized it was no laughing matter.
A sweating Colbert said, "This feeling I have in my mouth right now is what I was afraid of from the beginning of this. G** damn it." Stephen then had to walk around before asking Evans "Is this common? My fillings are on fire."
But Colbert wasn't done yet, he still had to eat "Blair's Mega Death Sauce with Liquid Rage." This particular sauce is 550,000 on the Scoville scale. To put that in perspective, Tabasco Sauce is only 2,000 Scoville and a fresh jalapeno is only 8,000.
It was a religious experience for the clearly miserable host. After sampling the last sauce it got so bad he started pray saying, "Oh, my God, Hell is the absence of God's love and I want to ask God whatever I did to deserve this, please forgive me."
