First We Feast's Hot Ones served up 50 hot wings for the five reunited members of *NSYNC, Justin Timberlake, Chris Kirkpatrick, JC Chasez, Lance Bass, and Joey Fatone, as they actually got into one hell of a conversation for fans.

Having teased their reunion by freaking out Taylor Swift at the VMAs, the '90s pop icons are hot on the promotional trail for new Trolls Band Together single, "Better Place," releasing Sept. 29 with the film.

Dealing with hotter and hotter hot sauces for the YouTube show, *NSYNC speak about the fact that yes, members of the group were cast as Jedi knights in Star Wars: Episode II: Attack of the Clones (it was edited out, to fans' dismay), the fact that Bass spent months in training for a mission to the International Space Station only to be kicked off due to the involved documentary's insurance company, and Timberlake's immortal pronunciation of the word "me".

When they reach Da Bomb, host Sean Evans hits the group with a style retrospective and wow, there's a lot of matching jacketry and regrettable hairstyles.
