TEMPO gets spicy with ‘Hot Ones’
Culturally, Jamaicans are taste-makers in the spice department, so TEMPO Networks has launched Hot Ones Caribbean Season Two – Jamaican Edition.
The Jamaica Tourist Board has partnered the production to test celebrities’ pepper tolerance against a range of popular local sauces, while spotlighting the world-renowned beauty of the destination.
The show hosts 10 pepper sauces and this season includes the spicy entry of Grace Hot Pepper Sauce, Smart Choice Farms, Unplugged, Scotch Boyz, Maggi Pepper Sauce, Walkerswood, Maggi Scotch Bonnet Sauce, Uncle Ducky’s, Tooksie’s Hot Truff, Lincoln’s Likkle Tups and, of course, TEMPO’s own House of TEMPO (HOT) sauce.
“Words can’t begin to express my excitement for the launch of Hot Ones – Jamaica Edition. For so many reasons, Jamaica holds a very special place in my heart, as it was the first island in which TEMPO was launched in the 2005, with a historic TEMPO event in Oracabessa, James Bond Beach. To partner with the Jamaica Tourist Board and other iconic Jamaican brands to further spotlight the destination and its remarkable culture in the Caribbean mosaic is at the core of my vision. Jamaica is a certified Hot One!” said founder and CEO Frederick A Morton Jr.
The series features Jamaica’s premier personalities in music, fashion, sports and entertainment and is hosted by Ashley Em and Brush1The Road Marshall.
The show streams on the TEMPO’s new streaming platform, TEMPO+, (TEMPO, Flow 1), TEMPO YouTube and others.
“Hot Ones Caribbean represents a unique way to market and promote our remarkable region. It allows for the presentation of multiple attributes, including our amazing cuisine, while spotlighting our rich talent, culture and beautiful destination in a most entertaining manner. The United States Virgin Islands, where I was born and raised, is up next for the third season and we plan to spotlight all of the islands, returning to many like Jamaica, as multiple episodes are required to bring out all the heat,” concluded Morton on his vision for the show.
