Two years ago, Dingo featured their Widow Maker sauce on the 11th season of the Emmy-nominated show in 2020, in which host Sean Evans interviews celebrities as they process ten increasingly spicy chili sauces.

Margot Robbie, Pete Davidson, Zac Efron, and Will Ferrell were among the entertainment heavyweights to sample Widow Maker, with pop superstar Justin Timberlake proclaiming Dingo chef Leigh Nash “Willy Wonka of hot sauce”.
