  • - Which chicken wing is the king of the chicken wing?

  • - Let's talk about that.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - Good mythical summer.

  • - Welcome back to another week of good mythical summer.

  • And if three episodes a week is not enough for you,

  • fear not mystical beast because we will back

  • to our regular schedule of an episode everyday,

  • five days a week, beginning with our season 14.

  • Season 14.

  • - 14.

  • - Premiere on August 20th.

  • - But before we do that we have some pressing matters

  • to attend to today.

  • You've spent your whole life walking around

  • not knowing what the best chicken wing was

  • according to two men on the internet

  • who are doing everything in their power

  • to desperately hold on to a sliver of their youth.

  • - Well, today we're gonna remedy that.

  • It's time for we're wingin' it

  • to see which wing is bringin' it.

  • (chicken croaking)

  • We're gonna be tasting wings from various restaurants

  • while wearing blindfolds.

  • Each wing will be the original hot flavor.

  • Then we're gonna rate the wings on a scale of one to 10,

  • and then guess which restaurant they are from.

  • - Whichever wing has the highest of our combined scores

  • will be crowned the lord of the wings.

  • Whichever of us identifies the most correctly

  • will also be crowned the lord of the wings,

  • but we'll actually get a crown.

  • - Oh great.

  • - The prize is a chicken wing crown.

  • - Okay.

  • The contenders are Hooters, Buffalo Wild Winds,

  • Wingstop, Wing Street, which is AKA Pizza Hut,

  • Domino's and KFC.

  • Not all KFC's sell bone in wings,

  • but we found one that did.

  • - Let's get some wings.

  • - [Both] Round one.

  • - As you can see we can't.

  • - And all our wings will be brought to us

  • on our very own patent pending Bling Wing.

  • - Now before we bring it in I consider you more

  • of a wing aficionado.

  • I think you have an advantage here.

  • - Ah, I love wings.

  • - And I'm interested which one comes our on top.

  • Do you have a predictions?

  • - I think that Wingstop is my favorite wing.

  • That's what I would just say if you asked me.

  • - Buffalo Wild Wings has a lot of flavors,

  • so I'm assuming that their original is very good.

  • Right.

  • The hot wing.

  • - Yeah, but it's so many distractions there.

  • You don't know.

  • - That's true.

  • That's true.

  • You mean with the screens, sports.

  • - No, but so many different flavors.

  • Wingstop just has like--

  • - Two.

  • - Five or six or something like that.

  • - All right, bring in the first one.

  • - Oh gosh, a lot of pressure on me today.

  • - I'm gonna get the hot lips.

  • Oh feather, wow.

  • - I got a whole bone in my mouth.

  • - Oh really, you ripped the whole thing out of the clip.

  • - No, just a bone.

  • - Oh nasty.

  • - I just spit a bone and it hit one of my bones.

  • - As long as you don't--

  • - My finger bone.

  • - Don't hit it towards me.

  • - Oh, this is soft.

  • - We got a nice spicy flavor, not too overpowering.

  • - I'm not a huge fan of this one.

  • - You think.

  • Why?

  • - It doesn't have um.

  • There's not a lot of crispiness.

  • I think that--

  • - It's a little soggy.

  • - It's got a little bit of a sogginess.

  • Now that could be just because they've been out for a while.

  • I don't know.

  • But not a huge--

  • - There's a sweetness in the spicy sauce.

  • - And a sweetness that I don't particularly like.

  • I'm gonna give this one a four

  • 'cause I think there's a lot of room for improvement.

  • - Yeah, I would agree with that.

  • I'm gonna also go with a four.

  • - [Woman] You ready to guess?

  • - What is it?

  • - I got a guess.

  • - [Woman] Three, two, one.

  • - Wing Street. - Domino's.

  • Okay, you think Wing Street.

  • See, I think Domino's because the sogginess--

  • - It could be Domino's.

  • - It was like one of those wrapped in foil

  • and delivered with a pizza kind of a vibe.

  • - Well Wing Street is from Pizza Hut,

  • so that would also be the case.

  • - Okay.

  • - So, I think that's definitely Domino's or Wing Street,

  • and I'm not 100% sure.

  • (chicken croaking) (upbeat music)

  • - [Narrator] Round two.

  • - I've never had a KFC wing.

  • - Well, you will this morning.

  • Bring it in.

  • Oh, there it is.

  • Okay.

  • Bigger wing.

  • Oh my goodness.

  • (laughing)

  • What is happening?

  • What is happening?

  • There it goes.

  • - Huh.

  • - I think I ate a string attached to a wing.

  • - That wing it--

  • - Meaty.

  • - Genetically modified.

  • - I can taste a bigger wing, more meaty.

  • It's more fried.

  • - That is a good wing.

  • - Really good wing.

  • - I don't think it's perfect wing.

  • - You said genetically modified,

  • but I think the chicken itself and the fried part

  • taste better than the previous wing by a long shot.

  • - It's like the chicken had been working out.

  • - But the sauce itself was the little underwhelming.

  • - A little weak.

  • - It was quite mild.

  • - Hmm, man.

  • At first I'm gonna give this one a six

  • because it's a step up from what we tasted,

  • but it's not a perfect wing.

  • - Yeah I mean, I really like it.

  • You know what I'm in total agreement.

  • A six.

  • Two notches up from the previous.

  • I'm ready to guess.

  • - [Woman] Three, two one.

  • - Buffalo Wild Wings. - Windstop.

  • Okay, so we're both thinking higher end wing chain

  • dedicated to a good wing.

  • - I thought that I would like it more

  • if it was from Wingstop.

  • Again, not all these are the same,

  • so I don't know.

  • I think that one of us have gotten both of these right,

  • and the other has gotten both of them wrong,

  • and I don't know who's who at this point.

  • - There's other options.

  • - Another time.

  • (laughing)

  • (chicken croaking) (upbeat music)

  • - [Both] Round three.

  • - Sink out teeth into another wing.

  • - There's something dangling on there.

  • I believe we got a little dangle.

  • - Oh yeah.

  • - I think I can control it better like this.

  • - First of all, I'm just smelling this one.

  • It smells totally different.

  • - Oh, way different.

  • - More breading.

  • - Uh-huh.

  • I think I pulled some of it with it.

  • Is it illegal to touch it?

  • - You cannot touch it.

  • It's a tangier sauce, wouldn't you say?

  • But not a hotter sauce.

  • It's funny because the first one

  • still has the hottest spice.

  • - I feel like I have a memory of this wing,

  • but it's a wind I haven't had in a long time.

  • There's more breading on it.

  • I think I might know where it is,

  • and I used to love this.

  • But my taste have changed.

  • - Well, you're talking about Hooters.

  • Let's just be real here.

  • (laughing)

  • - I don't think it's a great wing.

  • - You like to hula hoop on your time at home.

  • - Yeah, yeah.

  • I think that a lot of people who think

  • that they want more bread on their wings are wrong.

  • The more you get into the purity of the chicken,

  • the better, and the breading is just clouding

  • the whole story.

  • So, I'm gonna give this one a five.

  • I do think it's better than the first one,

  • but just a five.

  • - Again, I 100% agree with the rating.

  • We're in lock step there.

  • I'm also giving it a five.

  • And I would've guessed a fast food delivery wing,

  • like a pizza place, but it's too small.

  • So, I'm left thinking the exact same thing.

  • Let's vote.

  • - [Woman] Three, two, one.

  • - KFC. - Hooters.

  • Oh, you tricked me.

  • (laughing)

  • - Well, because.

  • - No, it is Hooters.

  • - It could've been Hooters.

  • - It is Hooters.

  • - Because it's so bready,

  • but I just figured that KFC also does a bready thing.

  • - I know I haven't been there since high school,

  • and it was a very awkward experience,

  • but I do remember it pristinely.

  • (upbeat music) (chicken croaking)

  • - [Both] Round four.

  • - All that stuff you said about Hooters

  • you were just bating me to vote for Hooters.

  • - No, because it could've.

  • It might have just as easily been Hooters.

  • - Well, then you would've voted for Hooters.

  • - But at the last minute I was like the sauce

  • taste a little bit different

  • than what I remember from Hooters.

  • - Bring in the next one.

  • Flutter, flutter, flutter wing.

  • Oh, I was about to say this is more of a barbecuey sauce,

  • but then it oh, it got hotter.

  • - Well, it's real spicy.

  • - Definitely the spiciest one we've tasted.

  • - Again, there's breading there.

  • - There is breading.

  • - There's breading, and where there's breading

  • there's a breader, and where there's a breader--

  • - There is what?

  • - I don't know.

  • - 'Cause are you're saying that Wingstop

  • doesn't bread their wings?

  • - It is if any breading super light breading,

  • but I think it's no breading.

  • I think it's just a wing skin.

  • It's just wing with skin on it just thrown into the fryer,

  • and then drizzled with sauce I think.

  • - Okay.

  • Boy, that's a really good wing.

  • I'm starting to
