Things got hot on “The Tonight Show” when actress Priyanka Chopra made a guest appearance on Thursday.
An innocent conversation about New York City’s food turned into Chopra and host Jimmy Fallon debating over who has a higher tolerance for spicy food. A table was brought out to test their spice palettes. The two then dug into plates of Atomic Wings slathered in the signature “nuclear” sauce, which are the company’s hottest wings.
Fallon could only stomach one while Chopra – who also stars in the show “Quantico” -- turned up the heat and ate two.
