[Intro Music] Hi Guys, I’m Laura Vitale, and on this episode of Laura in the Kitchen
I’m going to show you how to make Vanilla Cupcakes from scratch with an amazing raspberry buttercream frosting. They’re easy to make, they’re cheap, they’re a total crowd pleaser, everybody loves them, and they look.. look how beautiful they look. I mean, seriously, Let’s get in the kitchen, lets
start cooking and let’s start impressing some people. Let’s Do It! You’ll need some all purpose flour, granulated sugar, room temperature un-salted butter, whole milk, salt, baking powder, eggs and
vanilla extract. And in a little bit I’ll show you the remaining ingredients for the raspberry buttercream. Alright, first thing we’re going to do is take our butter,
that’s one stick of un-salted room temperature butter (very important). .. And your one cup of sugar. .. And we’re going to cream this together till it’s nice and creamy smooth. It’s going to be a little bit loud. Here we go. My sugar and butter are nice and creamy, now I’m going to
add in two whole eggs, and two teaspoons of vanilla extract. Now these are really yummy vanilla cupcakes, so you want to
make sure you give them a nice amount of vanilla. Alright. Back on. My butter and sugar and egg mixture is nice and fluffy. Now make sure you use a spatula and from the bottom up, just
scrape it down, you want everything to be really well incorporated. Now we’re going to add in the all purpose flour. And the baking powder and salt. Now the salt is very little. I always put salt whenever I’m
making anything sweet because it acts the same way it does in a savory dish. It brings out the flavors of the ingredients so, always add
salt, even when making dessert, it makes a huge difference. So put this on low, otherwise you’ll get a big
POOF of flour, and then slowly add the milk. And this is going to be dense kind of batter,
it’s not going to be a smooth liquid batter. They’re going to be a really delicious moist cupcakes, and you want to make sure not to
over mix, otherwise you’ll get bread instead of cupcakes. It will be tough and dry. That’s it!
See that! Just enough to have it incorporated. Perfect. This is the perfect batter. There are no lumps. You never want to over mix when you are making a cake batter. So, make sure your oven is pre-heated to 350 degrees F. OK, this is going to make 12 cupcakes and I’m going to use an
ice cream scooper to fill them because it works perfectly every time. Look at that! I’m just going to do the remaining cupcakes. I filled all of the cupcake liners with the batter, now I’m going to put these in the oven for about 20-25 minutes.
In about 20 minutes, take a toothpick and insert it in the middle, if it comes out clean, they are done. Make sure you didn’t over fill the liners so when they rise
they are perfectly even with the top of the cupcake liner. Remember these are cupcakes, not muffins. Let’s put these in the oven! Now my cupcakes came out of the oven ater 20 minutes exactly, and I let
them cool for 45 minutes because I don’t want the frosting to melt. OK, for the frosting we will need one stick of un-salted butter
at room temperature – put it in the mixing bowl. We’re going to use one pound box of confectioners sugar. OK. Everything will get mixed together so it doesn’t
matter what order you put these in. I love buttercream frosting on my cupcakes, but I wanted to do
something a little bit different, and this is soooo good. Wait until you see how beautiful they will look when they’re done. I’m
putting in about a half of a teaspoon of vanilla extract. And, let me get a spoon, a pinch of salt – remember, always put
a little salt. Add about a half a cup of raspberry preserves. I like to use the one with the seeds
in it because it looks very beautiful. All of the ingredients are in the mixer, now on low start the mixer. Start on low until everything starts to get mixed,
then switch the speed up to medium. Start on low until everything starts to get mixed,
then switch the speed up to medium. Start on low until everything starts to get mixed,
then switch the speed up to medium. This is a disposable piping bag I love these because regular piping bags smell bad after the first
few times you use them if they are not cleaned properly. Disposable piping bags are cheap and Iove them. I’m using a star tip. I’m going to pipe the frosting on the top just to make it
look beautiful, and I have some fresh raspberry to doll it up. You see how beautiful these cupcakes came out, look at that, they’re perfect. Can you tell that my favorite color is pink? Let’s put these on here. Frosting is done. Wow, look at that consistency, it’s heavenly. I can’t wait to eat one of these, they’re going to be so good! Give it a quick stir. Look at the color! Put some frosting in the piping bag. Mmmm. That tastes soo good! You can do this however you want, I just like to go around And just build it. We will continue this and top them with fresh raspberries. Look how beautiful.. Now I’m going to add the raspberries. People will think you got these at a fancy bakery. Only if they knew.. So easy to make. And they look beautiful. Here you go! Now, you saw how easy this was, and you have to
promise me that you will go into your kitchen and make them. Why wouldn’t you want to!? Look how beautiful they are, and
they’re so good. And you know I can’t resist. Look how moist! If I get it on my face, please don’t laugh! The buttercream is the best buttercream you’ll ever have. The cake is moist! I’m Laura Vitale, go to my website at
www.LauraintheKitchen.com to get this recipe with measurements. See you next time! Bye! [Music]
(crushing) – Oh my gosh! You challenged us to another
giant sour candy video. Devin, close your eyes. – Okay. – Holy cow, this thing is huge. – What is huge? – Now I gotta open it up,
keep your eyes closed! – Open what? – Yay! Yay! This is. (heavenly music) Yo, this is insane. Keep your eyes closed, and you have to guess what candy this is. It’s right in front of you. Lean forward, you’ll get it. There you go. – Oh man. But bro, this could be, like,
any kind of chocolate ever. – Dude, it’s got a very
specific name to it, Devin. Take another bite, take
another bite, maybe. (laughing) – All right, I’m gonna go with Crunch Bar. – No!
(buzzer buzzing) – Did I get it?
– No. You can open up your eyes. Ta-da! Because you lost, you now have to eat a sour candy from the Bag of Doom. – Wait, what? – All right, so here it is, the sour candy–
– What? There’s so many of them.
– Choices, Devin. – I guess I’ll just go with-
wow, this is way heavier than I thought it would be. Wait, what? They’re, like, bananas.
(laughing) – I mean, have you never
had a sour banana before? – No, have you? – No. – Bro, these are so squishy and weird. – Devin, you now get
the Necklace of Shame. – Wait, what? This again? I feel so shamed.
(laughing) All right, here we go. Oh, gosh. (laughing) – So guys, right over here, we also have the Cereal Bowl of Sourness. I’m gonna put these in here. – All right, we have this next- – Ow! I am so scared. – This is what we have next. Oh my gosh. – What is it? – It’s like hair. It’s almost like he’s
going through a carwash. – Ah! Ah, ah, ha. – Dude, you’re so paranoid. – Yeah! – All right, just calm down and stick out your tongue. Do you get anything? Any taste? What are you doing? All right, I’ll just
hold it out like this. Go for it. Any guesses yet? (bell dinging) Oh, what, no, no no! Don’t turn so quickly! – Twizzlers! Did I get it?
– Yeah! Look at all these, dude. – This is the longest
Twizzler I’ve ever seen in my entire life. Yo, yo, yo you need to stop. And because I guessed it correctly, Devin, you have to eat a sour candy, so choose a Bag of Doom. – I guess I’ll just go with this one. – Oh man, let’s see what it is. – Oh, wait, what? – What are those? – They look really sour. – I have no clue what those are, but those look like they’re
gonna burst in your mouth with just a whole bunch of sour flavor. – They’re like little clouds. – Of doom. – Dude, I hate sour candy. All right, here we go. Three, two, one- – Wait, wait, wait, first! Five second subscribe challenge. We want to see if you can

– There we go. Perfect.
– No, no. Here we go. Three, two, one. (laughing) – Oh dude, no, they’re
falling out of your mouth! Oh my gosh, they’re so gross. – Oh man!
– Holy cow, is it sour? – Oh, yeah. – Ha ha! I’m glad I didn’t get this one. The Cereal of Doom, we’re gonna put some of these in here. Dude, they’re wet. You spit them out and they’re wet. (bell dinging)
Here it is, the next candy for this next round. Devin, keep your eyes closed. – They totally are closed. – Three, two, one. – Ow, what was that? – I must admit, I thought it was going to
be a giant version of this, not just one’s going ah!
– Wait, what are these? (glass breaking) – That was loud. – Open up your mouth. – Ow! – Oh my gosh, are you okay? – I thought I chipped a tooth. – Bro, I thought you did, too. Are you okay? – Hold on, I think I know these. Oh, Airheads. – Yep! There you go. – They’re sticky. – Finally, I don’t have
to pick one of these bags, and it’s you. All right, I’m gonna take this- This one is heavy! What is in there? – It sounds like a rock. – Yo, these are like- – Control yourself. (clanking) – This thing is green, which means it might be
actually really sour. Three, two, one. – Whoa, dude, don’t choke! Whoa, dude, are you okay? Oh, no! That wasn’t a lot. That was like one lick, bro. Oh, your tongue is turning green! Is it actually that sour? (yelling) – Oh my gosh! – All right, we have the next one here. Collins, your eyes are
still closed, I assume. – Yes. I’m so scared. – Dude, this looks crazy. Can you smell it yet? Can you smell it yet? Can you smell it? – I got a whiff of chocolate. – All right, you ready? – No. – Bro, what are you doing? Just bite down on it. This is just, ah. Sorry. (laughing) – Oh, oh, Mars Bar. – No! It is not. It’s a Snickers bar. – I do not like these Bags of Doom. – I’m so excited right now. – It’s getting lighter. No! – Oh, those are so sour.
– Dude, these are crazy! – Guess who’s going for it? Three, two, one. – Oh! Are you okay? You’re like a Pez dispenser. – I can’t, I can’t, I can’t. – All right, add ’em in. Payback! – Ow! What was that? – Yo, this looks crazy. – I’m so curious and nervous. – Oh my gosh! Can I eat this?
– No, no you can’t. – This looks so good. – This is for me. What are you doing? Oh my gosh, I feel like a mustache. – You gotta mustache. Oh, come on. – Mm, this is so good. Oh my goodness. Wow. – What do you think it is? – I have no idea. Pop rocks?
– Nope. Nerds Rope, Devin. – A what? – Open up your eyes, bro. Look at how cool this thing is. – Whoa. – But because you could
not guess what this is, let’s see what you got. Dude, look at all that malic acid, bro. You got it all over the table. Dude, those are gonna be terrible. – All right, here we go. Three, two, one–
– Wait, wait, wait, first. Three second like challenge. Three, two, one, done.
– Here we go. Ow. Way worse. (laughing) – Are you good? What’s happening, bro? – Whoa. – We got the sour cereal, we’ll get some malic acid in there. That’s mine, that’s mine, that’s mine, That’s good, that’s good. Here we go, the Necklace of Shame. – Nope, that round is over! Denied. All right, Collins, for this next round. Bro, bro–
– I’m so scared with my eyes closed around you. – You’re already in a good stance, because this next one, you are not allowed to
use your taste buds. You must use one of
your other five senses, which is karate. – What? – Just start swingin’, karate choppin’. You totally missed. – Ow! Ow! Ow! – This isn’t working out as
well as I thought it would. No, no, no, dude, you can stop. I think I left the cardboard under it. – Cardboard? In candy? Whoa, geez! – All right, three, two, one. – Ow!
I know what it is. – What?
– It’s a Rice Krispy Treat. – No!
– Oh yeah! – I wanna take a bit of this thing, this thing’s crazy. – Oh no. Sour gummy bears. Oh, dude. What? Three, two, one. – Why would you do that? – I blocked it. Did you see that?
– Holy cow. That was pretty impressive. We have the Necklace of Shame. – Why does it do that? – I guess we gotta put
it in the cereal now. Next round, let’s go. – All right, Collins, this next one is very large and very hairy. – What? I’ve never heard of a hairy candy before. What are you doing? – I’m trying to get it out of the package, it’s that big. And it bites. It bites really badly. All right, you ready for it? Three, two, one, and he goes for the bite. – That hurt. – Just go out and bite. Leap of faith, bro. You got this. Your lips look hilarious, bro. – Gummy snake, a gummy snake! – Yes!
– Yes! – It’s not a gummy snake, bro. I’m celebrating–
– Oh no! – Hairy? A bear? – Oh, and every round, I’ve forgotten about the Necklace of Shame. That’s right. Sorry. Here, I’m gonna choose this one for you. – Oh, my gosh. It looks like bubble gum. – You can’t take that one. We gotta give you a worse one, dude. – What?
No. – How ’bout this one here? (screaming) – There’s a string in it! Here we go, three, two, one. Ow, ow, ow. – Dude, are you okay? Will this soothe you? Do you want some of that? Not a good combo? – Ow! I bit down really hard. – All right, add it to the cereal. – There we go. – Aw, missed. – This one, Devin. – Yeah? – Good luck. – That is paper. – Open up your mouth. Three, two, one. Ow, you bit my thumb. Devin bit my thumb. – Oh! I have no idea. It tastes like some sort
of buttons or something. – That’s it! Jumbo buttons. – No, really? – Well done. I’m not happy about this. All right, I’m gonna take this one here. – All right, go for it. Oh, and can’t forget
the Necklace of Shame. – Okay be careful, be careful. Ow, ow, ow, ow. – You’re really bad at putting it on. – Let’s see what we got. Sour Lifesaver thingies. This is not a Lifesaver. This has got to be somethin’ else, man. Here we go. Three, two, one. – I’m just gonna take one of these. Here we go, we’re gonna add these in to the cereal. These are really good. All right, and next up, we have these Reese’s- I mean.
(record screeching) – Did you just give it away? – No, no I did not. Nope, did not give it away at all. – I smell peanut butter. I know exactly what this is. – I don’t think there’s
anything I could do to mask the smell, other than put a lollipop under your nose. Oh my gosh, these come in, like, a cake platter. – Stop. Please stop touching my nose with it. I’ll stay really still. – We’re flyin’ in. – All I smell is peanut butter. Give me the Reese’s, and I can tell you it’s Reese’s and then I will win this challenge. – But it’s not Reese’s at all. It’s this, here, taste it. – Ah, ah, ah. – See, it’s not Reese’s, bro. – That was, like, that hurt. What was that? – I feel like the jig is up, dude, you can smell peanut butter. – This looks incredible. – Go for it. What happened? You got none of the Reese’s Pieces-ness. – It’s so good! – Dude, you keep on spilling it. – The Necklace of Shame. You must wear it again. – I knew this was coming. – And now, Devin, choose your sour candy. – All right, I got it, this is my bag. What did I get? Oh no! This could probably be
the worst one I think we’ve ever gotten. – Dude, those look like they’re
lemon flavored, for sure. – Oh, and the malic acid. – There’s so much. – All right, here we go. Three, two, one. Whoa. It’s probably the most
sour thing I’ve ever had. – Let’s add them to the bowl right now. This one here is massive. This is at least 12 times the normal. All the way out, all the way out. – Ew. – And then bite down. – I can’t. – My teeth are stuck. Oh! Tastes like chocolate. It tastes like another Hershey’s. You didn’t give me another Hershey’s to throw me off, did you? – What is it, Devin? – It’s a Hershey’s bar. – No. You didn’t get it! – What? – It’s a Hershey’s kiss. So, you lost by just a little bit. – Whoa, whoa, whoa, we should let them decide. Comment down below if you
think I got that right. – I don’t think you did, so choose a bag, Devin. – Wait, what are these? I can’t even squeeze it. – They’re, like, super hard. – That’s not a good sign. – Yeah, no, that’s not good at all. Oh my gosh! – Oh, wow, these get sweet really fast though. – Try another one. – You’re not chipping another tooth, bro. – So I’m gonna add these to the cereal and, so far, Devin’s the
one losing this challenge. Of course, the Necklace of Shame. There we go. So Devin, you lost the challenge which means you need to eat
the most sour bowl of cereal in the entire world. – Dude, it looks so sour. – Yeah, it’s gonna blow your
taste buds out of your mouth. – Your expectations might
be a little too high. I wanna bring it down just a little bit. Wait, bro, but where’s the milk? There’s milk in cereal right? – For the milk, we’ve got sour soda. – Wait, no. – Exactly. Here we go, we’re gonna add in the sour soda. Oh, snap. Here we go. The sourest bowl of cereal
in the entire world. Take your bite. – This looks crazy. – Oh, dude, the banana! – Oh I forgot about the banana! – The banana! – The beginning of my journey. – Beginning of your journey to failure. So guys, make sure you comment down below. What are some other candies you would love to see a giant version of? And right now, Devin, go for it. You ready? – All right, three, two, one. – Oh, my gosh. Holy cow. You guys, if you want

to you guys right now. Our Instagrams are down below. We love ya’ll so much. Bye! – It’s so sour. – Dude, are you okay?
– I just been kicked
out of the Spy Ninjas. – We had no other option. She broke of the main tenets
of being a Spy Ninja, honesty. – And you guys shouldn’t be
mad at Chad, Daniel, or Regina. I completely understand
why they kicked me out because I’m not following the rules of what a true Spy Ninja should be. – But I still care for her, so I’ve been following her around. It led me to here, look, she’s right here. Where is she going? (gasps) No way, guys, does
that look familiar to you? That’s the Black Pyramid,
Project Zorgo Headquarters. – It’s way too complicated
to explain right now. – Who is she even flogging for? She’s not a Spy Ninja anymore. She’s part of them. – Luckily, I have a room in this place. – She’s staying at the
Project Zorgo Headquarters. – Since I can’t go back to the safe house, this is my new home now. I can’t believe I’m out
here by myself in the world. It just feels so empty without
Chad, Daniel, and Regina. It’s just sad. – I’m so conflicted right now. (intense music) Why is she looking everywhere? She looks so sketchy. What is she up to? Where is she going? She’s taking the elevator. What, who is she calling? Vy’s going on the 20th floor. I gotta go and follow her. 20, let’s go. Vy has to be on this floor somewhere. Guys, is that Vy right there? They’re going into a room. I don’t think that’s Vy
’cause there was two people. If only I had my spy essential kit, I could’ve used my binoculars, ugh! But they looked really tall. Vy, she’s like this, so it’s not her. We gotta keep looking, though. She’s somewhere on this floor. There’s Vy. – I’m finally here. I have a place to stay now. (suspenseful music) All right, guys, we are here. I guess this is my new home now. – I got in, I got in. Hide in the bathroom.
– I don’t live in the safe house anymore
with Chad, Daniel, and Regina, so I guess this is it. (sighs) Now that I’m not a Spy Ninja anymore, I’m gonna go back to my old
YouTube videos I used to make, beauty, lifestyle tutorials,
so that’s what I’m gonna do. Today’s tutorial is how to
cover up under-eye circles and puffiness after you’ve
been crying for a long time. – What the heck? – The concealer of choice
is Bye Bye Under Eye. Gently tap it in. – Vy’s doing a beauty tutorial? (metal clangs)
– Wait, what was that? What was that noise? Did you guys hear that? – Hide, hide! – I heard a noise, that’s very strange. – Vy is one sneaky Spy Ninja. I have to hide really well. – Check around here, see what’s going on. There’s nothing in here. Let’s check the bathroom. I don’t have all my spy gadgets with me. I don’t even have my spy
essential kit anymore. There’s no one in the shower. There’s nothing underneath the vanity, so let’s check out the rest of the room. All right, guys, that was really weird. Maybe I’m just being really paranoid. But let’s finish up this makeup look here with a setting spray. (upbeat music) (faint clicking)
Wait. (tapping at door)
(gasps) That noise, that noise definitely is
coming from that door. Oh, my gosh, okay. Oh, my gosh, I’m almost
tall enough to see this. (dramatic music) (gasps) It’s a hacker, it’s a hacker. I gotta hacker up, I can’t
let them see that it’s me. – A hacker’s coming
and she’s hackering up? I knew it, she’s a part of Project Zorgo. She did betray us! – Oh, gosh (gasps), the
hacker, he’s here, he’s here! – PZ700, there is a meeting in room 25025 in five minutes. We must go now. – Okay, all right.
– Let’s go. – [Vy] Okay. – (gasps) They just left, Vy
and her new hacker friend. They’re going to a Project Zorgo meeting in some room number. I couldn’t really hear them. If you guys know, leave it down
below in the comments below what room number they’re
having their meeting. Let’s go, guys. It looks like Vy and the hacker are taking the elevator up. I need to find the staircase,
and if I run up the stairs, I’ll definitely beat them to the room. I gotta go all the way up. Look how scary this looks! I have to beat the hackers. (gasps) What’s happening, there’s
a hacker right here! I gotta be really sneaky. I can’t get caught right now. He could throw me off the stairs. I gotta get through without him seeing me, on my tippy-toes. (suspenseful music) (mellow jazzy music) (suspenseful music) Now to distract the hacker. (metal clangs) It worked, four more
flights of stairs to go! (gasping) (mellow jazzy music) (suspenseful music) It’s getting hot. (gasping) It’s two seconds, hopefully the elevator, I thought that was a hacker for a second. It’s not a hacker (gasps),
but I do need some water! (mellow jazzy music) – [PZ715] So it’s a hot
one out there, ain’t it? – [Vy] Yeah, but it’s dry heat. It’s much better than the humidity. – [PZ715] Yeah, I guess it is way better than my hometown Ashwaubenon. – What, where?
– Ashwaubenon, it’s over by Green Bay, don’t you know? It’s over on the east
side, over by the bay. – [Vy] Yeah, oh, yeah, yeah. – [PZ715] Just left of Milwaukee. – Floor 23 (gasps), two more to go! – [PZ715] What are you
doing with that camera? – [Vy] Uh, I’m documenting
for Project Zorgo. All the meetings have cameras. – [PZ715] Oh, yeah, I guess
I heard that before, yeah. – (gasps) Just a little break. (gasps) I should’ve brought water. (gasps) Okay, come on! Floor 24. – [Vy] So yeah, do you know what we’re doing at this meeting? – [PZ715] I don’t know,
hopefully we’re just gonna play some bingo, I don’t know. – Bingo?
– My grandma, she taught me how to
play bingo back in ’94. – [Vy] Oh, that old,
I’m too young to know– – Oh, well–
– Anything about– – [PZ715] You’ll learn, you’ll learn. It’s a good game, you know. – [Vy] Yeah, right. – Floor 25, we did it! Let’s go, guys. (suspenseful music) – [Vy] Okay, it’s the floor. Let’s go to the meeting. (suspenseful music) (gasping) – (coughs) Oh, my gosh. I’ve been running for too long. Oh, it’s really high up here. So thank you to the commenters down below for letting me know that
the room number is 25025. Okay, 25022, okay, 23. 25025, here it is. I don’t think any of
the hackers are here yet because five minutes hasn’t passed yet, so I still have some
time before they come in. How can I unlock this door? I forgot my Spy Ninja backpack! I’m so dumb sometimes. I have to check my Spy Ninja pockets. I have some trash, parking ticket, and this card swiper, I don’t know. Domino’s gift card, I have an idea! Using the Spy Ninja
Network, there’s a program called Hack Project Zorgo. If I keep leveling up,
that’ll help program my Domino’s gift card to unlock this door. So I just gotta keep playing, leveling up. And huzzah, I think I got it! All I gotta do is plug this
card swiper into my phone. Swipe, hopefully it works. (gasps) It worked, it
worked, I can’t believe it! I just got into the room, but there’s a hacker right there, look! – [PZ409] Oh, my goodness, it’s so much dirt in hotel rooms. Why are we even having
meetings in hotel rooms? They’re so disgusting! They don’t even wash the bed sheets. – That hacker looks awfully familiar. It’s PZ409, PZ409 is one vicious hacker. She slapped Vy right in the face! – [PZ409] I saw this documentary one time. They don’t even wash the pillow covers, and then you have a meeting here, and the Project Zorgo Leader
is gonna be showing up and this place is a mess. (dramatic music) – [PZ715] Guys, what do you
think this meeting’s about here? – [PZ314] I don’t know,
I hope there’s free food. – (gasps) More hackers are coming. There’s Vy, I see her, the traitor. Who the heck is that
suspenders lookin’ fool? I’ve never seen him before. Oh, PZ Funf, hate that guy. – [PZ409] Does anybody
need any hand sanitizer? – [PZ314] Oh, would you just
take a look at the view? It’s absolutely breathtaking. – [PZ Funf] I’m scared of heights. – [PZ409] It doesn’t even
matter how high up we are. All the floors are dirty. – [PZ Funf] I’m scared of Master. I hope he doesn’t do anything bad to us. (door creaks)
– The door just opened. – [PZ Funf] Here’s, ooh, he’s coming! – [Regina] Oh, the leader! Oh, gosh, he scares me. I do not wanna get caught. – [PZ Leader] At ease. Project Zorgo members, I have learned there is a traitor among us. One of you is a Spy Ninja. – That’s Vy, she’s gonna be in big trouble if she gets caught! – [PZ Leader] I gathered you
here to test your allegiance and expose the traitor. One of you will be formally punished. Relinquish all spy pens. No spy pen for you. This is a private meeting. PZ700, are you the traitor? – [Vy] No, leader, I am not a traitor. I am on your side. I pledge my loyalty to you. – [PZ Leader] PZ Funf,
are you the traitor? – No, I hate them, I was born in Germany. I can’t be a Spy Ninja. – [PZ Leader] A valid point. PZ409, are you the traitor? – (scoffs) Of course not, silly! (PZ Funf laughs) – [PZ Leader] The traitor is not PZ Funf. – [PZ Funf] Ja, I did it, I did it! – [PZ Leader] You may exit. – Of course PZ Funf isn’t a Spy Ninja. – [PZ Leader] Step closer. One of you is a Spy Ninja and a traitor. You will be severed from Project Zorgo. PZ700, it is time to prove
you are not a Spy Ninja. What is your greatest hacking ability? – [Vy] I’m a small Project Zorgo member. I can fit into tiny spaces
that no one could fit into. I’m very important to the team. – [PZ Leader] Without question,
you are a tiny hacker. – It’s so obvious Vy is the little one all the way to the left,
but they don’t know which Spy Ninja joined Project Zorgo. They could be looking for any of us. – [PZ Leader] PZ409, what is
your greatest hacking ability? – [PZ409] My best hacking
ability is being able to hack 99.9% of germs and bacteria. – [PZ Leader] That is true. PZ314, what are your greatest
hacking capabilities? – Well, to be honest, I’m not
much of a hacker (laughs). I’m more of a paper and pen guy than a keyboard and mouse guy, but I’m always doing
Excel sheets (laughs), making sure we’re
financially stable (laughs). – [PZ Leader] An important role indeed. PZ715, what is your
greatest hacking ability? – [PZ715] Well, you know I make
the best beer-battered brats in my backyard, you know. Nobody makes ’em like me. I put some nice summer shandy on there. – [PZ Leader] Not important
at all to our organization. However, your honesty is appreciated. – [PZ715] Gotta make sure
the hackers aren’t hungry. – [PZ Leader] That is essential
for extensive missions. Finding the Spy Ninja has
proved to be a difficult task. PZ700, what is something only a Project Zorgo member would know? – [Vy] I know the entrance to
the Project Zorgo exit room down in the basement. One of the ways to get
in is through that hatch, the tiny hatch where PZ2
and I can only fit in. – [PZ Leader] True,
said hatch is minuscule, allowing only the tiniest
hackers to gain entry. PZ409, what would only a Project Zorgo member know? – [PZ409] Only a Project Zorgo member would know how dirty the rooms are because that’s why I was
hired to keep everything clean and you wouldn’t know how dirty it was if you weren’t a Project Zorgo member. – [PZ Leader] Your
answer sounds fabricated. You must still gain Project Zorgo’s trust. (PZ409 gasps) PZ314, what would only a Project Zorgo member know? – [PZ314] A true Project
Zorgo member like me would know that we were
very profitable last year, especially after we took
over Chad and Vy’s safe house and sold it on the black market. – [PZ Leader] What a suspicious reply. We burned down the Spy
Ninjas’ original safe house and have yet to identify
their current address. – Uh, the other safe house, the
ex-PZ1 safe house, that one. – [PZ Leader] Ah, yes,
we did profit greatly from that mission. – I’ve never seen him before. He’s like the most suspicious of anything. – [PZ Leader] PZ715, what would only a Project Zorgo member know? – [PZ715] I came up
with the plan to capture the Spy Ninjas at their safe house, but I guess that didn’t work out so well. – [PZ Leader] A failure indeed. Based on your replies,
the individual who proved his allegiance to Project Zorgo is PZ314. Only a true Project Zorgo
member would understand how profitable our transactions have been. You may exit. – [PZ314] Yes, good call,
Project Zorgo Leader. (upbeat dance music) – What is he doing, is that a dance? Who does he think he is, Peewee Herman? (static hisses)
– Fall in. One of you is a Spy Ninja. As your leader, I will
identify the traitor. (tapping at door)
– Someone else is at the door. – [PZ Leader] To detect the Spy Ninja, PZ2 will issue the final test. (suspenseful music) – [PZ715] PZ2, what does he know? He can’t even count. – [PZ409] PZ2 has pug breath. – Oh, my gosh, it’s PZ2! What is he gonna do, what is PZ2 up to? – [PZ Leader] Project
Zorgo obtained this item left behind by a trespassing Spy Ninja. – (gasps) That’s Vy’s lipstick! Remember when Vy was in
the Project Zorgo basement? She dropped the lipstick
and now the hackers have it! – [PZ Leader] From the
scent of this cosmetic, PZ2 will determine its
Spy Ninja counterpart. (PZ2 snuffling) PZ2, is 715 a Spy Ninja? – Mm-mm, mm-mm. – [PZ Leader] Is 409 a Spy Ninja? – (snorts) Mm-mm. – [PZ Leader] PZ2, is PZ700 a Spy Ninja? (PZ2 snorting)
(suspenseful music) PZ700, you have been
identified as a Spy Ninja. What is your response? – [Vy] PZ2 is wrong. (PZ2 snorting) – [PZ Leader] PZ2 has
never been incorrect. You are the Spy Ninja, grab him. – [Vy] No, no (shouts), no! – [PZ Leader] Hold the Spy Ninja still while I unmask him. – [Vy] No! – [PZ Leader] The imposter
is none other than– – No, no!
(suspenseful music) – Vy Qwaint.
– OMG! (Vy shouts)
(PZ2 snuffles) – It’s over, her face is revealed! They know it’s Vy. – [PZ Leader] Bring Vy Qwaint
to the exit ceremony room. – If I go out and try to save her, I’m gonna blow my cover, too! There’s four hackers
and there’s two of us. It’s not gonna end well for us. I gotta figure something else out. – Get, no–
– I oughta slap you. – No, I’ll slap you! – I know she betrayed us, but I still don’t want her to get hurt. Remember the exit ceremony? They made me eat worms. Even though Vy is not a Spy Ninja anymore, she’s still in danger and
I still care about her. I gotta help her out, I
need to think of a plan. Think, think (gasps), oh,
guys, there’s a TV right there. If I show that Vy got kicked
out of the Spy Ninjas, maybe they won’t do the
exit ceremony on her and make her eat worms. Maybe they’ll go easy on her. – Let go of my leg!
(PZ2 growling) – Pulling up the video. Little bit of this, little bit of that. Hack the TV (gasps). – [PZ715] Look, they’re kicking her out. – It’s working, it’s working! – [PZ715] She really did get
kicked out of the Spy Ninjas. – They fell for it! – [PZ Leader] Vy Qwaint. – Yes, Leader!
– You have proven your disloyalty to the Spy Ninjas. – I have.
– You have gained our trust. – Yes, I am here to prove my allegiance to Project Zorgo and you, boss. I have a gift for you, and
I agree with your mission to take over YouTube with you. – A gift, she never gave me a gift! – [PZ Leader] $10,000,
we accept your gift. – (gasps) It’s the $10,000
that she stole from us! – [PZ Leader] You are now granted access to a higher tier of Project Zorgo. – Ranking up, what the heck is this? How come I never heard of this before? How does Vy know all this information? – Yes!
– I can’t believe it. Everyone knows we’re the best hackers. – [PZ409] It’s probably
dirty money, anyway. – Yeah, you’re right,
409, that is dirty money, and stolen money from our safe house! – [PZ Leader] PZ2, present
Vy Qwaint with the box, as she is now a high-ranking
member of Project Zorgo. – Yes, go get it, PZ2! Give me my reward! – [Regina] PZ2’s giving
her something in a box? – Oh, my gosh, is that it? (suspenseful music) Oh, my gosh, my reward! (dramatic fanfare)
Black holes are one of the strangest things in existence. They don’t seem to make any sense at all. Where do they come from… …and what happens if you fall into one? Stars are incredibly massive collections of mostly hydrogen atoms that collapsed from enormous gas cloud under their own gravity. In their core, nuclear fusion crushes hydrogen atoms into helium releasing a tremendous amount of energy This energy, in the form of radiation, pushes against gravity, maintaining a delicate balance between the two forces. As long as there is fusion in the core, a star remains stable enough. But for stars with way more mass then our own sun the heat and pressure at the core allow them to fuse heavier elements until they reach iron. Unlike all the elements that went before, the fusion process that creates iron doesn’t generate any energy. Iron builds up at the center of the star until it reaches a critical amount and the balance between radiation and gravity is suddenly broken. The core collapses. Within a fraction of a second, the star implodes. Moving at about the quarter of the speed of light, feeding even more mass into the core. It’s at this very moment that all the heavier elements in the universe are created, as the star dies, in a super nova explosion. This produces either a neutron star, or if the star is massive enough, the entire mass of the core collapses into a black hole. If you looked at a black hole, what you’d really be seeing is the event horizon. Anything that crosses the event horizon needs to be travelling faster than the speed of light to escape. In other words, its impossible. So we just see a black sphere reflecting nothing. But if the event horizon is the black part, what is the “hole” part of the black hole? The singularity. We’re not sure what it is exactly. A singularity may be indefinitely dense, meaning all its mass is concentrated into a single point in space, with no surface or volume, or something completely different. Right now, we just don’t know. its like a “dividing by zero”error. By the way, black holes do not suck things up like a vacuum cleaner, If we were to swap the sun for an equally massive black hole, nothing much would change for earth, except that we would freeze to death, of course. what would happen to you if you fell into a black hole? The experience of time is different around black holes, from the outside, you seem to slow down as you approach the event horizon, so time passes slower for you. at some point, you would appear to freeze in time, slowly turn red, and disapear. While from your perspective, you can watch the rest of the universe in fast forward, kind of like seeing into the future. Right now, we don’t know what happens next, but we think it could be one of two things: One, you die a quick death. A black hole curves space so much, that once you cross the event horizon, there is only one possible direction. you can take this – literally – inside the event horizon, you can only go in one direction. Its like being in a really tight alley that closes behind you after each step. The mass of a black hole is so concentrated, at some point even tiny distances of a few centimeters, would means that gravity acts with millions of times more force on different parts of your body. Your cells get torn apart, as your body stretches more and more, until you are a hot stream of plasma, one atom wide. Two, you die a very quick death. Very soon after you cross the event horizon, you would hit a firewall and be terminated in an instant. Neither of these options are particularly pleasant. How soon you would die depends on the mass of the black hole. A smaller black hole would kill you before you even enter its event horizon, while you probably could travel inside a super size massive black hole for quite a while. As a rule of thumb, the further away from the singularity you are, the longer you live. Black holes come in different sizes. There are stellar mass black holes, with a few times the mass of sun, and the diameter of an asteroid. And then there are the super massive black holes, which are found at the heart of every galaxy, and have been feeding for billions of years. Currently, the largest super massive black hole known, is S5 0014+81. 40 billion times the mass of our sun. It is 236.7 billion kilometers in diameter, which is 47 times the distance from the sun to Pluto. As powerful as black holes are, they will eventually evaporate through a process called Hawking radiation. To understand how this works, we have to look at empty space. Empty space is not really empty, but filled with virtual particles popping into existence and annihilating each other again. When this happens right on the edge of a black hole, one of the virtual particles will be drawn into the black hole, and the other will escape and become a real particle. So the black hole is losing energy. This happens incredibly slowly at first, and gets faster as the black hole becomes smaller. When it arrives at the mass of a large asteroid, its radiating at room temperature. When it has the mass of a mountain, it radiates with about the heat of our sun. and in the last second of its life, the black hole radiates away with the energy of billions of nuclear bombs in a huge explosion. But this process is incredibly slow, The biggest black holes we know, might take up a googol year to evaporate. This is so long that when the last black hole radiates away, nobody will be around to witness it. The universe will have become uninhabitable, long before then. This is not the end of our story, there are loads more interesting ideas about black holes, we’ll explore them in part 2.
– [Collins] You challenged me to eat the worst reviewed century egg. – [Both] Ooh! – What! – And you challenged me to eat the worst reviewed jellyfish noodles. My stomach’s already goin’! – These are coming from the
worst reviewed restaurants. Ooh! – [Both] Ooh no! – You have to eat that! – That looks like tar! And the reviews said
the smell would be bad, but this is way worse than I expected. – [Devan] And the reviews
on mine said they would be rubbery and slimy. They were not exaggerating! – Alright, so I’m gonna be
taking a bite of this thing here. Just kinda wanna split it open. – [Both] Ooh! – [Collins] It’s like,
all gooey on the inside! If this was a dumpling I would be excited. But it’s an egg! I guess just kinda like, go for it? I don’t know. Here we go. Three … – [Both] Two, one. (squirting) Ooh! – No! – Whoa! – I feel so bad for you dude! – Whoa!
– Are you okay? I can’t even speak. – Wait! – What? No. No! (Collins yelling)
You can’t say … Okay, I was like, there’s no way! – Zero stars! (Collins screaming) – Time to eat my Jellyfish noodles. And dude, if yours was that bad, I wonder how bad this is gonna be, bro. Okay, while you eat that I’m gonna spin my mystery wheel for the next food. Here we go! – Dude it’s jigglin’ and wigglin’. – Alright, let’s see what my next food is! I’ve got tilapia next. Yo dude! It’s a full fish! – Oh, wow! Alright, well now it’s

like, sting you man. – Mm. Whoa! – What? Is it good? – It’s super spicy! And it’s got like, little
strings in it, bro! – Maybe those are the
things that sting you. – Mm-mm. – You don’t think so? – So, the jellyfish was actually alright. It was more the spice that I didn’t like. – I gotta eat my tilapia. – I hope it’s something good, dude. – Ooh! – Aah! Wow! – Dude, it’s so bony! – Wait, what? Quesadillas a los chapulines? – What is that? – I have no clue. Alright, here’s mine. Just quesadillas? – I found my piece of fish. I just gonna go for a bite on this thing. – And I found a bug, bro! – Dude!
– There’s a bug in here! – There’s a bug in your food? – Ooh! My food is the bug, bro! – Oh my gosh! – It’s cricket quesadillas, bro! – Oh my god! Dude, no wonder it got
such a low review, bro! – [Devan] That’s what the trampolines are! – Ooh! I don’t think that’s
how you say it, Devan. Hopefully I don’t get a
bone because this stuff is super bony. Three .. – [Both] Two … One. (crunching) – [Devan] Ooh!
(Collins grunting) Oh!
– Ow! – Oh!
– Ow! – I heard crunching and cracking! You got bones. – Aah! – [Both] Ooh! – The fish was great until
I got hit with the bone. Ow!
– Ooh! – Okay, lets see how yours tastes, man – I can’t believe I have to
take a bite of this thing. – Well, I’ve got a blender here. We’re going to be adding
these ingredients in and drinking it at the end of the video. – And I have to blend this up? – [Collins] We gotta blend
up your crickets stuff, bro. But right no you gotta
take a bite of that. – Ready? Set. Go. – Ooh, man! (Devan grunting)
Ooh! I can see his legs! Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! – If you don’t think about it, it tastes like a crunchy quesadilla. – What? But I still give it a zero star bro. Alright, right now we’re
on to the next one. – Oh, now that is a one star sushi plate. – Wait! Oh my goodness. – Oh no, bro. Those are the beans? – [Both] Ooh! – [Collins] What is that, bro! It is like, gelatinous
and undulating hell. – [Both] Ooh! – [Collins] Why is it stringy? – [Devan] It’s like spider eggs! Look how wack mine looks, bro. I can’t get over this. Done adding this. – Well how about this Devan. Would you like to have some of my kale? – No! No! – Here you go, are you sure? (both screaming)
Oh my gosh! – [Devan] What was that?
(Collins laughing) – Oh my gosh! – No way!
(Collins laughing) I think what I’m gonna do
now is try to mix it up. – Alright, well now it’s time to taste my sushi and see how it … Ooh my gosh it’s dripping. See how it tastes, man. Three … – [Both] Two … One. – Ooh! No! Uh-uh! – What!
– No! Uh-uh! – Nope! – Alright first I just gotta … (Devan gagging) Gotta mix it up. – The egg is getting it all stringy, man. – Ready? Set. Alright, here we go. – Oh man! Oh dude, it’s like it’s
stringing off your mouth. No way. Is it good? – It has like, no taste. But a wax taste. And it’s like, webs. – Right into the blender. And we’ll be blending it up at the end. Let’s spin the wheel! And for this one you challenged us to try the worst reviewed French food. Let’s see what we got here. – Wait, escargot? – I got French onion soup. – [Both] Ooh! – [Collins] What is that? – [Devan] I thought that
would look a lot prettier. – Bro, looks like a liver! Let’s see what your escargot is. – [Devan] That’s interesting. Ya know what? I need to figure out what this is. – Wait a minute. No way! Dude, there’s a full onion in it! Well I guess it’s time to taste the worst reviewed onion soup. Sorry it just dropped off, man. This looks like every
food except soup, man. It looks like pasta. I just wanna get as much of the flavor in this thing as possible. That is a heaping sporkful. Alright, I guess here we go. Three … (sniffing) – Two …
– It smelled like an onion. One. (triumphant music) – What? – Whoa! It is so good! – [Devan] Whoa! You really like this stuff. – Mm-hmm! – Alright then. – Although it might look kinda weird, I give it five stars, man! – I don’t even know how to do this. I think I’m gonna maybe break it in half. – [Collins] Ooh! – [Both] Ooh! – No!
– What! Wait a minute! The stuff on the top is just garlic! – Ooh! That’s what it smelled like garlic! – [Collins] Yeah, that’s
the snails in the middle! – Think about it, Devan. If they didn’t put like a
half inch layer of garlic to cover up the snails, how
bad do the snails taste? – I don’t even wanna—
– You gonna pick up a snail? – Yeah, I don’t even wanna … Eww. – [Collins] Oh my gosh! – Oh, man!
– Wow! – [Devan] I guess I’ll put it there. – [Collins] Yep, and then just gonna have to take a bite of it, Devan. You ready? – Yeah, I’m open to try somethin’ new. Alright, three … Two … One. – First Five Seconds
to Subscribe Challenge! We wanna see if you can
subscribe to this channel and turn on the channel post notifications in five second! Five … Four … Three … Two … One! Done! If you can do that, comment down below Keyper Squad right now. – Ready? Set. Go. – [Collins] Oh my gosh! (crunching) – Oh! (gagging) – What was that? You think there’s shell in it? – Aah! It’s spicy! – Why is it spicy? And why is there shell in it, bro? (Devan hacking) – Its rubbery, bro. Wow! (Devan yelling) I give it a one. – Alright, gonna add this to the blenders. Let’s see what our next one is. – [Both] Three … Two … One! Whoa! Wait, what? Sriracha noodles?
– Yo dude, I have purple pancakes with green slime. And it’s called taro pancakes. – [Devan] What is this? I think this is garlic! – Ew! – [Devan] Wow, these are
not great noodles, bro. – I have no clue what this is. It’s like some sorta mystery
sauce or something, man. Whoa! Dude, the green mixed with the purple is turning it like, brown. Alright, well the mystery sauce is on. – [Devan] Now that
you’ve added your sauce, it’s time to add my garlic, dude. Oh, it’s going to be so spicy! – It is now time to take a bite of these and see how they taste. And so Devan I think you
should go first, man. – Yeah, I think I should. Three … Two … One. – That was a quick bite, bro. (Devan whining) – Oh, is it spicy? – That’s so spicy! – Those noodles are
like, super duper spicy? – Yeah! – Be careful, man. You’re flipping your
noodles everywhere, bro. – I give it a one! I mean, it is as advertised. – Alright, let’s see
how the pancake tastes. I can take the pancake and get all the weird sauce all over it. Just like that. I can just kinda go for a bite. Here we go. Three … – [Both] Two, one. – Ah! What does it taste like? Oh my gosh! Ten stars!
– What? – Alright, right now
we’re on to the next one. Time to spin the wheels. Here we go. – [Both] Three, two, one. – And for this one you challenged us to try the worst reviewed Italian food. Oh, I got purple, alright.
– What’d I get? Bone marrow risotto, dude? – [Collins] I got squid ink pasta. – Huh. – [Both] Whoa! – [Collins] You can literally pick up all the noodles in one hand. – Ooh!
– Oh, dude so wait. That’s the bone marrow. – Oh, there’s a hair! There’s a little hair.
– No way! – Dude, listen to the bread. Hold on. (knocking) That’s like, hard as a rock. I just realized the stuff on the top, this is actual squid. – What is this at the bottom? They look like crushed up peas. In the reviews they did say that this was a little over seasoned. – Ooh! Ooh! All you have to do with the noodles is peel them apart just like this. – I don’t know if this is
normal but I see a vein. I don’t wanna eat my veins. – It’s like a nerve. To try out mine I wanna get
a little bit of everything. I wanna get a little
bit of the rock bread. And I wanna put a little bit
of noodles on here like this. Of course we gotta get
some bits of the squid. Alright, well it’s time to find out what my squid ink noodles taste like. – [Devan] Dude, this is gonna be weird. – No! Dude I just noticed, it’s a squid tentacle
with suction cups on it! Three … – [Both] Two … One. – One! – I lose a couple pieces, sorry. I’m not stalling. (crickets chirping) I’m just confused. Three … Two … – [Both] One. – Ooh. It is? – Okay. – Okay. – It’s weird. (gagging) (laughing) It’s spicy! – I don’t recommend eating
this on a first date because you’ll end up with
everything in your teeth. – Is it everywhere? – Yeah, you look like a fool. (laughing) Gotta put some of this
green stuff on here. – I still don’t even know what that is. – Alright, ready? Set. Go. – No, you can’t just bite it! That is a bone! – I guess I just gotta use a spoon. – It’s so weird. It’s kinda like gelatinous in a way, man. – Whoa! Three, two, one. The texture is shuddering. – This is not a favorite of yours. – It’s so greasy. It lives up to it’s one star review, and I give it a half a star. – Whoa! Alright, we’re gonna
add this to the blender. Let’s spin the wheels and for this one … (screaming) Not again!
– Whoah! – You challenged us to try the worst reviewed Chinese food. – [Devan] Wait, what? Stinky Tofu. – [Collins] What, I got Tripe soup. I don’t even know what this stuff is, man. Looks kinda like a brain. I’m confused. – Alright, time to see if
mine lives up to it’s name. You ready? – Yup. I don’t smell anything. Yeah, it’s not bad at all. – (sniffing) Ooh! It’s like dog breath! Just take a whiff. (Collins screaming) I can’t imagine ordering this, bro. I feel like this would linger for a week. – Alright, look at that! Look at that hat stringy looking … Agh! – Oh boy! – Alright, time to see
how this thing tastes! So here we go, man. – Wait, you know what this is, right? – No, I don’t. – It’s the inner lining
of a cow’s stomach. – Nope, done. That’s it. – The mystery wheel picked it though. You gotta do it. I guess I’ll put some egg on mine. A little bit of this rice here. – And your stinky tofu. – I didn’t choose the stinky life. Dude, I’m about to eat
dog breath that’s food. This is gonna be rough. You ready? – Yep! – Three, two … – Oh man.
– One. (crunching) – (laughing) Trying not to breath. Is it a little bit tough? Oh boy. – It’s spicy. – Devan doesn’t like spice. – Man, the eggs! Mixed with it, man. Oh! Oh! (exhaling)
– Ah, hey! – Does it smell good? – Not at all. – My review for this would be a zero. The taste is not worth the breath you’re gonna have for a week. – I can attest to that. Your breath’s pretty bad right now. Here we go! Let’s see how this tastes, bro. I don’t even know how to … – (screeching) Aah! – That perfectly describes
how you must feel right now. – So it I guess we just gotta go for it. Three, two, one. (yelping) (gagging) (laughing) I have psyched myself
up for this one, bro. A lot of emotions. A lot of feelings. A lot of energy. A lot of everything right now, man. – You can do it, you got it just– – I know, ah! – Oh, wait! Oh yeah, Three Second Like Challenge! We wanna see if you can like this video in three seconds. You ready? Here we go. – [Both] Three … Two … One. Done! – Dude. It’s that little bit that’s hanging. (groaning) – [Devon] Ay-yi-yi! (muffled screaming) Bro! – Yo, that was the worst thing
I have ever like, texture! (groaning) Time to add the foods to the blender. Let’s spin the wheels. And for this one you challenged us to try the worst reviewed American food. Ooh no! – Wait, what? Chicken fried steak? – [Collins] Lobster mac and cheese. – [Both] Ooh! – [Collins] What? It’s like dripping out juice! Let’s see what yours is. – Alright. I mean, it could look worse. – [Collins] It’s stuck on there! – [Devan] Stuck on it. – The weirdest thing is
that the mac and cheese doesn’t look creamy at all, man. It’s just like noodles. No! Dude! It’s got lobster meat in it, but look at this! It’s also got lobster shell. Dude! – You gotta watch where you eat. There’s other pieces of it too. Look at this! – [Devan] guess I’m
gonna try to cut mine up and see what’s on the inside. I think that’s steak on the inside. – As you’ve done that, I think it’s time to add some fresh lobster. Alright, there we go. Lobster tail– Aah!
– Ooh! – Oh my gosh! On the inside! Aah! No!
– Dude, what is that? No! That goes back! That is not added in my thing! Uh-uh! Right now it’s time to see how the macaroni and cheese tastes. And how your chicken
fried steak thing tastes. – [Both] Three … Two … One. (crunching) – It’s really rubbery. – The reviews did say it
was a little bit rubbery. What rating would you give it, Devan? Overall probably a three. – Dude! That’s where all the cheese went! It’s all stuck to the bottom!
– Yeah! – I’m gonna take a huge bite
of this thing right now. You ready? Three … – [Both] Two … One. (squishing) – Oh. Ugh! – How are the noodles? – A little bit rubbery. I give this a rating of … Alright, gonna add this into the blender. Let’s spin the wheel and for
this one you challenged us to try the worst reviewed German food. – Alright. So what’s yours?
– What? I got a ham hock. – I got weisswurst? – Oh, what?
– Whoa! – So that’s ham hock? It’s got a bone in it! No, dude! I think this is like the ankle of a pig! – Dude, how did you now that? – Bro, I study these things. – Alright, it’s time to open up mine. – [Both] Whoa! – [Devan] Is that a soggy pretzel? – That’s got to be the
worst looking pretzel I’ve ever seen. – Can we even call this a pretzel? I didn’t even realize the main event. These sausage looking things. – Ooh!
– Hey! You can literally peel the skin off of it. – [Collins] Ugh! It’s like sludge, bro! – [Devan] Yikes! Do you have any clue what these are? – Yeah, they’re egg noodles. Well, now it’s time for you
to try your white sausages. It’s such a weird combo
with the pretzel, bro. I’m just going to put
that on the end, there. We got a kabob. Or shabob? I dunno, kabob? – (laughing) Shabob? – Three, two, one. Ugh! It’s way too spongy. I would give it a zero for
the soggy pretzel, bro. – Alright, well now let’s
see how this thingy tastes. You know the first step, gonna have to pull it apart a little bit. You just gotta pull it apart and get some different textures. Ooh! Dude!
– Ooh! – You pull one little bit and the whole thing comes apart, bro. (both screaming) It’s hot! – I think we kinda harmonized there. – Yeah we turned into a siren. Oh dude that’s kinda cool you can pull it apart like that. – [Both] Ooh! – [Devan] It’s steaming! – I’m gonna put that on there. It’s like a little hat. It’s going out for traveling. So now we’re gonna of course add in some of garnishes here. Let’s see how this tastes. Here we go. Three … – [Both] Two, one. (crunching) – Whoa! Dude! You took like, the whole thing with you! – I gotta try some of
the raw part, hold on. – Really? I heard a bit of a crunch there, bro. – Ooh! (laughing) It’s the garnishes that ruin the dish! It is (gagging). This gets two hawks out of 50. I’m gonna add this to the smoothie. We’ll be blending this up
and drinking it at the end. Spin the mystery wheels. And for this one you challenged us to try the worst reviewed Italian food. Let’s see what we got here. – [Devan] Shrimmp Scampi. – [Collins] And I got a
head cheese pate plate. – Alright, time to pop it off and … Ooh! What? – [Collins] Dude, you have
like, full on shrimps in there. – I have a full school
of shrimp in here dude. – And that is a head cheese pate plate. Oh boy! Dude! I think I’ve heard of headcheese before. I think it’s literally like, cheek meat. – [Devan] What? – Yeah. No! The noodles are actually, they’re a little bit oily. – Yeah, that what it said in the reviews. Dude, this is liver pate! – Wait. Liver pate? – This is pate combined with a head cheese is gonna be a lot. Then we gotta add some
pasta noodles to this thing. This is a head cheese sandwich right here. So, oh boy! Alright, I guess I’m
gonna take a bite of this. So Devan, you ready to
take a bite of yours? – Now it’s time to grab some noodles. I also gotta get some of
this asparagus on here. I heard it was not the greatest asparagus. Maybe a little bit damp. Look at it. It’s a little soggy. Three … Two … One. – Oh, I can hear the crunch of
the asparagus in there, man. – It’s a little oily. – Alright, here we go. Three … – [Both] Two … One. – Ooh! Okay. (triumphant music)
– Whoa! – What? What? – Mm! Oh my gosh! It is so good! – [Devan] It is just ’cause you haven’t had it before it’s good? Or is like, it’s really good? – Woo! It may not look it, but it tastes amazing! This gets five stars. Alright let’s spin the mystery wheel. Three, two, one. And for this one you challenged us to try the worst of reviewed
Thai food in our city. Let’s see what we got. – Wait, what? Oxtail soup? – [Collins] Fried Silk? Alright, so this I guess is fried silk. – [Devan] And this is oxtail soup. – Oh my gosh! – [Devan] There’s something
hard in there, bro. – I think I’m doing pretty good so far, because a lot of the
reviews said that they found weird things in food. Like bugs in the food. Or it just wasn’t prepared well. And I feel like, all in
all this is a pretty good. – Wait, dude, I think
those are silk worms. – No! Oh my gosh! Dude, you’re right! Dude, that’s a silk worm! – Alright, I think I’m gonna
take bite of mine first. – That’s probably best, man. Because I wanna stall as long as possible having to eat a silk worm. – [Devan] So just get some of this and– – Wait! N-n-n-n-n-no, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You just can’t eat just
a little bit of the soup. You either got to drink it. Or you got to take a
huge bite of that tail. – Oh, I dropped my spoon in there. – See, that’s a sign Devan. That’s a sign you can’t use your spoon. Take a bite of the oxtail first. And then take a bit of the soup. – Bro, I would honestly
rather switch with you. Alright, he we go. Three … – Oh boy. – Two … – (laughing) Your voice gave
you away on that one, Devan. – One. – Ooh! – Oh boy. Dude, it’s like it’s dangling, bro. – Aah! It actually tasted like chicken to me. – Did you spit it out? Alright, well now I guess it’s
time to try some silkworms. Look at that, bro. Look at that little … – To be honest that’s as bad as this. – Click over here to vote right now. Which do you think is worse? Silkworms or ox right now. Oh, you know what I forgot? I gotta actually add some
of the hot sauce to it. – Oh, man! – Then I guess we’re
gonna put a little piece of the cabbage. – Three … – [Both] Two, one. – But wait. – If you wanna win a 15 minute
video call with Devan and I, text the word worst to 81800 right now. So pause the video, text
the word worst to 81800. You’ll automatically be entered in to win. And right now, let’s see
how this things tastes. Three … – [Both] Two … One. Ooh! (laughing)
– Is it really hot? (Collins groaning) It’s not hot? Oh, it popped? – Ooh! (yelping) – Wow. You’re very brave for doing this, Collins. – Look, the actual worm itself like, that tastes kinda good. This gets a rating of two stars. Alright, gonna add this to our blender. We’ll be blending this up at the very end. And right now we’re on to the next one. Time to blend up the
worst reviewed smoothies. – Aah!
– Ooh! I forgot about the squid noodles! – It’s all … Ooh! It’s all stuck. – Why is it just like
stuck in one cylinder, bro? Oh my gosh. We’ve also got the best
reviewed smoothie in our city. And the mystery wheel’s
gonna decide which one we have to drink. But first we gotta add them
to the big blender here. – [Both] Ooh! – [Devan] The escargot, man. – [Collins] Yo, the bread got mad soggy. – Oh my gosh, the chicken steak. – The eggs are goin’ in. – [Devan] I don’t even
remember what that was. – Ooh, yeah. (gasping) I forgot the stomach is in there, dude. – Oh, no! We did some bad stuff with this one. – [Collins] Ooh! The silk worms! – [Devan] It’s a full snail! – These are gonna be the
most disgusting smooties we’ve ever had to eat. I’m just crossing my fingers
that I get the good smoothie and don’t have to drink this, man. Alright, well last spoonful is going in. – Oh, and the jellyfish noodles! – Real question is, do all these one stars make it a 10 star? Or is it like a negative 10 stars? – It’s a negative 10 star, dude. – Wait, we gotta add
some water though to it. Alright, we got the tap water. And now let’s add this in. And we’ll get this thing blending. So here we go. Ooh! – [Devan] Ooh! It’s dripping! – How is my pour cleaner than yours? Time to turn this thing up and blend it. So, how do we do this? Hold on. – [Devan] There? (blenders whirring) – Aah! Oh my gosh! – [Devan] Oh, it stopped working! – Yours isn’t working? – No, it stopped. – Whoa!
(blenders whirring) Oh my gosh! These things are all blended up and oh my gosh! Ooh! – [Devan] Ooh! – [Both] Dude! – [Collins] Oh, let’s dump it out. Dude, this is so gross . Ooh!
– Not the sides! – Just gonna top it off right there. Oh no! – The stinky tofu made it’s way through this whole smoothie. – It’s dripping! Time to spin the mystery wheels for which one we’re gonna get. And I hope I get the good one! – Please be the good one. – Three … – [Both] Two, one! (wheels clacking) – Please be the good one.
– Please! Please, please, please. – I’m not gonna look at mine
until you read off yours. So go for it. – Alright. No! (both yelling) It says worst smoothie! – Dude, I’m so sorry, bro! – No! – Three … Oh no, two … One. (triumphant music) Yeah!
– No! – Dude, I got the good smoothie! Oh yeah!
– No! – I’m actually so sorry for you though. ‘Cause that’s like, the
worst smoothie challenge we’ve ever done, bro. Alright, well let’s see how the best reviewed smoothie tastes. So here we go. – How is it? – Mm! – Wow. Yeah, yeah. Uh-huh. Way to rub it in, bro. – That is the best
smoothie I have ever had! But Devan, time for you to

– [Both] Bye!
I have people message me
on Instagram, saying, “You’re really slim.
I like your hair. “The only problem is,
I’d break you.” I’m walking on the beach.
Everyone’s just turning, looking at me, like, “Ah.” I’m not even big. I starve myself… Wow. ..which I have to do, to help my
body to eat itself. All right, fat boy?
Oh, hold off. He wants a sausage. As I’ve got older, I’ve come to
accept that the one thing that I can’t change
on my body is my penis. Where we stand at the
moment in 2018, for guys, there’s a massive,
massive pressure for us all to
physically look like, maybe, a Greek god. In order to be masculine or
attractive, you should be well-built. You can’t show any weakness. You can’t show any feelings,
you can’t show any softness. You have an expectation
to be strong. Flat stomachs, abs, muscles… Looking great, looking groomed. The ideal body type is definitely
six pack, puffed-out chest. Oh, yeah. Shredded. “He’s ripped.” It was always pushed into my brain,
“You have to look a certain way.” It does play with your head
quite a lot. I think, “Nah, I could be bigger.” Me wanting to look a certain way, that stems from childhood, really. My dad always said to me, “You have
to look physically strong.” And he drilled that into me
from a very young age. I’m kind of OK with my physique,
but it’s that thing of striving for perfection even though I know I’ll never
have perfection. I was a 30 waist, then it
was a 32, then a 34. Then, people started making comments
about, “Oh, is he pregnant?” It was always a bit of fun,
but somewhere in the back of the head, rings a bit of
truth. It hurts. I wanted to do something about it. Just puts that fear into you of making a change and failing. People assume that when you’ve got
an eating disorder, you look skeletal. That you look incredibly thin. But I was never like that. I could look just, like,
a perfectly healthy weight and people wouldn’t know
that I had bulimia. When I was young, I was bullied
for my appearance. I was very, very small and skinny
and that never ended, five years at school. I’ve eventually weighed 8st now
since I was 11, that’s not changed. I’ve kind of just got taller
and stretched out. Growing up as a black man,
I feel that there is yeah, a sort of, stereotype. In the way we’re seen, as well. I could come out the gym one day, I’m in my tracksuit, you know,
I’m sweating out, people just think, like,
“Oh, yeah, it’s a big black guy “walking behind me,” or something, and then they cross the road. I don’t know,
it’s just quite weird. A couple of times I’ve been stopped
in my car, as well. Told to come out the car,
and then straight away it’s like, “Ah, yeah, you’ve got
a bit of size on you, mate. “I’ll need to put these
handcuffs on you.” I am someone who has always
struggled with body image. I was around 15 years old. My parents were diagnosed
with cancer. I shut myself off from the world,
because I didn’t want everyone to see how much
my family was in pain. And I was already dealing
with everything else that a 15-year-old deals with –
identity, sexuality. I was overweight.
I did get teased. People used to say that when I
walked, it caused earthquakes and all these layers just built
up on top of me. I remember one moment after school,
I just ate so much food that I was naturally sick. Afterwards, I had this
feeling of, “I’m empty,” and that feeling
became an addiction. Kids would tell me in school
I was anorexic, that my parents starved me. One day there was four lads
on both sides of the corridor. I was on my own.
I had just got out a lesson. Two picked me up by the arms,
took me up the stairs, put me over the banister, sellotaped me there and left me. I was so lightweight,
I stayed there. It took two teachers to get me
down, but I was there for about half an hour. And it was in a crowded corridor,
so, obviously, you had everyone walking past, laughing as they went
along and it just felt like torture. I ended up going home and crying
to my mother the whole night. I turned around to my mum at one
point, and said, “Did you do anything while
pregnant with me? “Why am I this way?” At the age of 17, I went to the doctors to get help
for my bulimia. I was turned away
because I was a boy. And I was told that I didn’t
have an eating disorder, it was stress. People assume that teenage boys
are just confident, and that they don’t have issues with
their image or their body image. From that, I was just stuck
in this spiral that I just couldn’t get out of. And during that time, when I went
to the bathroom to be sick, I thought, “This is how you
will end your life. “This eating disorder
will kill you.” And I was OK with that. I tried these extreme diets. I was taking fattening, gaining
pills that were costing me hundreds of pounds a month. I was eating KFC, McDonald’s… ..breakfast, lunch and dinner. I only gave up after about
eight months of doing that. I was getting nowhere. My dad, he used to lift
weights, as well. But he wasn’t serious about it,
like I am. I used to go in the shed,
take his weights. I was probably about 14. I just started lifting in my room,
and then started getting big. My training stopped
quite dramatically. I was 25. I came off my bike. My leg was literally just broken
in three places, like, mangled. I was in a wheelchair
for quite some time. I went back skinny. I had to learn to walk again. I had this determination, like,
the doctors, they’re saying to me, “You’re not going to walk
for 12 months.” I did it in about five. I was determined. I needed
to get back in the gym. Look at me, like, my clothes
are all hanging off me now. And so that was part of the drive. When I was younger,
I was quite sporty so I played football
five times a week. I was 9.5st when I was 19, 20. 24, 25 mark is when I just stopped
playing football altogether and never done any
exercise after that. I started eating takeaways. I stopped looking after myself and
the weight just started piling on. At my heaviest, I was up to 20st. I had no confidence. There’s a lot of pressure on men
to look a certain way, and that means that we like
to put on the front that we’re happy,
we’re big, we’re proud. And then the “fat boy”
names start coming in. Can say, “Oh, it’s just
a joke,” or banter. I used to wear a bra,
wore a thong. You know, I’d run around naked
or I’d draw stuff on my belly, I’d shave all my hair off. Just, I wore a gimp suit. Yeah. If I was taking the mick out myself, they couldn’t do it to me
and make me feel crap. I’ve watched both my brothers
be taken to the gym and train and get big. But my dad, if I ever came down without a T-shirt on, “Your arms
getting a bit skinnier.” There would be comments. So as soon as I hit 16 he took me to
the gym, introduced me to training. To look a certain way
you have to sacrifice certain things and part of that is…pleasure. You have to eat a certain amount
of food, a certain time of day. When I eat, I’m so look forward to eating,
halfway through the meal, I start getting depressed
because the meal is going to be over soon
and I’m still hungry. I think I’m more addicted
to me pushing me. That comes from the other
insecurities in my life. I have a disability. My right foot is three shoe sizes
smaller than my left and I have four toes on my right foot and my right leg is five centimetres shorter than my left. Stopped me joining the police force,
stopped me joining the fire brigade and all those kind of things
which test one’s self and not everybody can do. It ain’t easy. Every day I go like that,
“What am I doing? “Can’t I just like, just be
normal?!” We all have issues with body
image and that’s why I think it’s so important to have these
conversations. Hi. Nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you. I see someone who’s incredibly
confident and got great muscles. But is there ever a time
when you think, “Hey, do you know what? Give
myself a break this year.”? I-I have that thought literally every day… Yeah. ..that I go, “Is this
actually worth it?” I keep going, “Yeah. “Yeah, yeah, it is.” Four-five years of my life
I had bulimia. OK. From a teen up until I was 21.
Oh, wow. It was for five years. Everyday was a routine then. Right. Now I avoid anything
that involves controls over any sort of shift in diet. I kind of see there’s similarities
between maybe having an eating disorder and doing what I do –
that I starve myself. Wow. Which I have to do to get my body
to eat itself… Yeah. ..before I stand on stage,
and even though it’s unpleasant, I force myself to do it. You’re talking about stuff that people don’t want to talk about. Just starting the conversation
can be so difficult for everyone because not everyone wants
to talk, not everyone is ready. We’ve seen the conversations before. We’ve seen it with women over the
last ten years or so and now it’s just a natural process. We can start off in those
conversations too. Women have always had to look a
certain way and act a certain way. Society has now said that men
need to look a certain way, just like women. Now men are able to talk
more about body image. One thing I’ve learned is
that everybody thinks they’re alone. Everybody thinks what they’re going
through is, is some unique. Yeah. And it’s just for them and
no-one else has experienced it. And it’s not, it’s not true. I mean, it’s always down to the
same thing, isn’t it? Just having an open and honest conversation.
Exactly. Yeah. I couldn’t agree more.
Yeah. Guys have become so obsessed
with what they look like now. I never thought there’d be a day
where people bothered about getting hair transplants and veneers
and all that sort of stuff. I think that the pressure
on men particularly now has increased a lot. We’re always presented with images,
whether it’s online, on TV. We start comparing ourselves
to what’s out there and that comparison
is very dangerous. It’s always been around. The problem with social media
is that it becomes so much bigger. People take out their phones,
they’re scrolling constantly. Their brain is absorbing
all this information, they’re not actually realising,
they’re just doing it and then think, like, “Oh, OK. “Wonder if I could look like that?” I know what it takes to get
that kind of body. That’s not who
the average person is! You only have to go into shops
to see what’s left on the shelves. It’s the smalls and the mediums,
every size that I want, large or extra large, is gone. Am I part of the problem? Erm… To be honest, it does my head in. I recently took a break from my
Instagram, I deactivated my account. Just… I got fed up of it. Now, I don’t feel like I need to
change body shape. It has a massive benefit
in the bedroom. I do like to be thrown about a bit. Gay dating apps, there’s so many
categories you can fall into. Like, I fall into something called a
twink, which is someone that’s slim
and looks young. I do use the hashtag twink
to my advantage. I put it in there just to up
my followers and my likes. You get people messaging you
on a daily basis saying you’re exactly my type. Knowing that people are attracted
to slim guys like me, it’s like I can accept my body. I tried to make fun of myself and my
body before anybody else could. And then I met this girl. She was like, “Well, no, that’s
not right. “You shouldn’t be doing this. “You shouldn’t be saying that.
You’ve got feelings.” She introduced me to new foods,
encouraged me to eat more healthy. I think my attitude changed
and then my body changed after it. Now I’ll go to the gym. I’ve got
a little bit of muscle but I’m by no means fit or unfit, I’m just
average. I have gone from a bigger guy that hated himself to a big
guy that loves himself. Do I do this to impress people? I would say no. I actually train
because I just love it. It’s part of my lifestyle. A lot of people train to have an ego
or you know to make themselves scary. That’s one thing I don’t agree on. My goal originally wasn’t,
it wasn’t to win. It wasn’t to make a career out of it and then
literally I put my big toe on that stage and it felt
like I was home. I was only supposed to do it once! I’m now doing it again
and I will do it again. So I’ve definitely got the bug
for it. I feel like I have to be confident
myself. I can’t expect other people
to be confident in me if I’m not even confident
with the way I look. People think you can say whatever
you want to a man about their body and they’ll just take it. If you can support somebody that’s
overweight, if you can be nice to somebody that’s overweight
rather than the nasty comments and the bullying, then half the
battle is already won. It doesn’t matter what I’m
presenting here externally. It matters about what I feel
inside and that’s what shows.
