Brought to Malaysia by iflix, 'Hot Ones' features actress and television host Maya Karin, who was tasked with interviewing the first guest of the show – Anwar. 

In the 33-minute interview, the Port Dickson MP revealed gruelling details about his life in prison, his thoughts on the scandal-ridden 1MDB, as well as his relationship with Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad

Anwar told Maya that he had exposed the 1MDB scandal in Parliament back in 2010 as he had gathered that RM8 billion were placed in the Cayman Islands.

He then claimed that rather than acting on the issue, parties allegedly involved in 1MDB acted "viciously" against him. 

"If former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had been more responsible, he could have tried to resolve that at that stage, but he did not," he added.

In another lighthearted moment, the PKR president also corrected Maya when she mentioned "if" he became the Prime Minister next year. 

"There was an agreement that was signed, and it will be honoured," Anwar said to Maya with a smile during the interview.

'Hot Ones', initially created by First We Feast, has made its name in the United States for the past few years

The US version of the show features host Sean Evans, who quizzes high-profile guests over chicken wings and increasingly spicy sauces.

Evans and his team are often praised for their impeccable journalism throughout all eight seasons of 'Hot Ones' – which has been referred to as the show's strongest selling point.
