Season 17's sauces come from a bevy of Hot Ones' most trusted sauce makers, and feature some unexpected ingredients you might not expect... Cantaloupe on chicken wings? Trust us, it works! Habanero chili in the #2 sauce, plus Pepper X and The Apollo Pepper in the #9 spot? Why not?! After this many seasons, we've got to keep the hot sauce lineup fresh. That includes switching up the #1 sauce, too. We're back to the classic Classic with chile de arbol, and Los Calientes Rojo makes a triumphant return as #5. Will Hot Ones' star guests be able to handle their hot wings? Or will the Wings of Death ruin their chances of becoming the stuff of hot wing legend? Only time - and Sean Evans - will tell.

Sean explains that this season’s lineup is a symphony of spice, leading celebrities on a journey of unique flavors, tasty chilis, and a whole lot of heat.
Hot Ones | The Classic
We like to switch it up around here and keep the #1 spot fresh, so the classic Classic is back for the first wing on Hot Ones Season 17! Our tangy take on iconic American hot sauce, The Classic's mild-mannered chile de arbol lures guests into a false sense of security with its mild spice and full flavor.

Dawson’s Hot Sauce | Cedar Smoked Garlic
From our friendly neighbors to the north at Dawson’s Hot Sauce, this pepper sauce is smoky, wood-y, peppery, and adds a hit of savory garlic to our second wing. We love it on a bagel with schmear, but it's also delectable on salmon or chicken. Habaneros make it pretty hot for a #2 hot sauce, so watch out now!
Scoville Heat Units: 7,000
Clark and Hopkins | Calabria
Inspired by the European travels, the hot sauce for wing #3 has sweetness from tomatoes and a dash of mushroom powder for an umami flavor kick. Calabrian chili flakes transport you to buona Italia. Also delicious on other Italian favorites, this is a great sauce for folks who are just getting into spicy food.
Scoville Heat Units: 15,700
Angry Goat | Phoenix
You may recognize the whimsical label from Hot Ones Season 8 and Season 13. Angry Goat returns with another unique hot sauce recipe, this time with cantaloupe and ginger. Yes, that’s right: melon on chicken wings. You heard it here first folks. Will melon wings become a trend? Only time - and our star guests - will tell.

Hot Ones | Los Calientes Rojo
You know it, you love it. Gracing wing #5 is Los Calientes Rojo. First introduced in Hot Ones Season 11, Los Calientes Rojo has quickly become a fan favorite Hot Ones hot sauce for its just-right habanero heat and bold flavor. Sweetness from apricot dances with smoke from the roasted red jalapenos and earthy cumin. If cumin on wings isn't your thing, nbd. Try it on tacos, burritos, eggs, avocado toast and more.
Scoville Heat Units: 49,000
Queen Majesty | Cocoa Ghost
Fan favorite Queen Majesty is gracing the #6 spot with a one-of-a-kind sauce featuring cocoa powder and ghost peppers. Gingery warmth makes way for a quick hit of heat that flares up into the nostrils and lingers. Long live the spicy wing queen!
Scoville Heat Units: 71,000
13 Angry Scorpions | Jekyll & Hyde
A newcomer to the Hot Ones lineup, 13 Angry Scorpions out of Brisbane Australia is bringing scorchin’ hot BBQ vibes with this brown sugar and Scorpion pepper hot sauce. Hot Ones' star guests will quickly realize this sauce's two-faced name is fitting. First it's smoky and sweet, then there's downright disastrous heat. Don't let that deter you though - it makes a finger lickin’ good BBQ wing. Eating spicy wings is an art, and remember: careful around the eyes!
Scoville Heat Units: 109,000
Don't worry, Spice Lords, Da Bomb Beyond Insanity is still on the show with hot questions and even hotter wings. Seventeen seasons in and Da Bomb Beyond Insanity is still blowing the heads off your favorite celebs! Because we love heat and tastebuds, we feature the all natural version, Da Bomb Evolution, which combines potent ghost pepper heat with equally bomb flavor. Evolution is a collab between us and the hot sauce company behind Beyond Insanity, so you know it still packs a kick, but we've added savory spices and a hint of smoke to create a fuller flavor hot sauce. Sorry not sorry, Sean Evans - we're not sacrificing our taste buds at the Da Bomb altar anytime soon!
Puckerbutt Pepper Co | Extra Mean Green
Season 17 marks a Hot Ones first: get ready for Pepper X and The Apollo on the #9 wing! Ghoulishly green with a kick that's mean, Extra Mean Green is a tangy verde style sauce from the diabolical mind of mad scientist Smokin’ Ed. At first taste, it's pleasant, but this hot sauce's Pepper X and Apollo Pepper blend is enough to haunt even the toughest of chiliheads. If you're not ready to eat it straight on wings, try adding a dash to white chicken chilli or thai green curry.

Hot Ones | The Last Dab: Apollo
It’s the piece de resistance. The feather in the cap of all who dare climb Mt. Scoville. The king of hot sauce KOs. It’s The Last Dab: Apollo. You don’t have to, but it’s tradition around here to add an extra dab of this to the last wing. It's the sauce that made Gordon Ramsay spray Sean Evans with Pepto Bismol. All Tom Holland could say after a double dab was, "Wow." This is the sauce that officially marks the completion of the Hot Ones Challenge. As People's Sexiest Man Alive Paul Rudd once said in his Hot Ones Season 10 episode, "Hey, look at us! Who'd have thought? Not me."
