    Please consider Mike Tyson, Gorge Foreman, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Clint Eastwood, Michael Cain or any greats that are still with us on the hot ones. I would've loved to see Bob Ross (RIP) on the hot ones, i know it might be too much (hot) for their health due to the intensity of the sauce so maybe a different scenario where a much lesser intense sauces are used? but that's just my opinion

    Oh also Keanu Reeves!!!

      his main job is working for bon appetit though. he's not a solo influencer who actually creates all his own content. he just gets filmed intermittently around all the other work he does for BA.
