No Filter: Getting roasted for glory and cash in the hot wing challenge

ST. GEORGE — It’s championship season, and both guts and glory are on the line with a roster of flaming hot wings that will leave you begging for mercy.

In this episode of “No Filter,” presented by Cloud 9, host Grady Sinclair took on an epic hot wing challenge at Wing Nutz in St. George. He faced off against Mark Musgrave, “The Voice You Know” on Fox Sports Southern Utah, and real estate guru Abraham Thiombiano for a chance to win $100 and the respect of wing lovers everywhere.

The gauntlet consisted of mild, medium and Wing Nutz’s signature Purgatory wing. The contestants were offered lifelines in the form of milk, vegetables and Pepto-Bismol, but they risked getting a strike by seeking a little relief.

The first wings were rather unremarkable in terms of heat, but all three men complimented the flavor and quality of the chicken.

However, sweat started dripping in the next round with the medium wings. Sinclair rated the spice a two out of five, but Thiombiano said it was more like 3.2.

“It’s got a little bit of kick at the end there. It builds up a little bit.”

Musgrave concurred. “It just marinates in your face.”

Finally, it was time to go to Purgatory, and that’s when the pain really kicked in.

Sinclair tapped out with a celery stick and gulps of milk. Despite Thiombiano’s attempts at negotiation, Musgrave was not to be deterred.

The heat was on. Who would emerge victorious?
