Cockiness and Hot Ones are tempestuous bedfellows. Sometimes, a bit of swagger can be the competitive edge a guest needs to survive the gauntlet. And sometimes—as in the case of Coolio—it can be his undoing.

For actor and comedian Michael Rapaport, confidence turned out to be a double-edged sword. He went into the challenge guns blazing, spiking chicken bones and tossing them around the studio with reckless abandon. But eventually, the arrogance turned into fear, and then a realization that he had “shamed his family” by taking part. In other words, another Hot Ones success story!

He also constructs a remarkably detailed fantasy hoops team of reality-TV stars, naming none other than Ray J as the GM (“His fuck style is buckwild!”).
