After over 300 episodes, Hot Ones is now entering the race for the Talk Series category at The Emmys. The popular series, hosted by Sean Evans, features spicy wings and questions. It is one of the three YouTube shows joining the category. For years, Evans has received praise for his laid-back style and thoughtful questions, elevating an admittedly silly concept into something more than memes, wings, and celebrities sweating profusely.

According to Variety, Evans petitioned to join the Outstanding Talk Series category, where he’ll now compete against late-night staples Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers, and Stephen Colbert. Creator Chris Schonberger’s Hot Ones rivals those shows, amassing over 3 billion views since its debut and receiving plenty of love from viewers. Previously, the show received a nomination for a Daytime Emmy Award, but now, it stands a real chance of winning against late-night shows.

Hot Ones returns May 23rd.
