Sean Evans Net Worth in 2020: $40 million
Background: Sean Evans is an American producer and YouTuber who hosts the series, Hot Ones, and has a net worth of $40 million.
Sean Evans was born on April 26, 1986 in Evanston, Illinois. Evans began his media career working as a freelancer for Complex Magazine in New Orleans.
There, he did interviews for the publication and put those interviews on its YouTube channel. During this time, he interviewed famous celebrities, such as 2 Chainz and Steph Curry. He was later offered a full-time job with the magazine in New York City.
Evans then began producing the series Hot Ones. In this series, he states at the beginning of every episode that the series comes "with hot questions, and even hotter wings." The series began from a meeting between Evans and Christopher Schonberger, the Editor-in-Chief of FirstWeFeast.com.
Through Hot Ones, Evans has interviewed many celebrities, including Shaquille O'Neal, Jeff Goldblum, Kevin Hart, Charlize Theron, Marques Brownlee, Guy Fieri, Gordon Ramsay, Post Malone, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Scarlett Johansson, and Paul Rudd.
The format of each episode involves Evans and his celebrity guest eating ten chicken wings, each of which is marinated with a progressively spicier sauce. During each episode, Evans asks the celebrity guest a question after eating each wing.
If a guest successfully finishes all ten wings, he or she is given an opportunity to promote upcoming projects. If the guest fails to finish all ten wings, he or she gets added to the Hall of Shame.
