The Super Bowl might not kick off until February, but the anticipation is heating up because on Feb. 13, Frito-Lay will debut its first ever Flamin’ Hot commercial featuring both Cheetos and Doritos brands. The commercial, which Frito-Lay began to tease on Jan. 7, will also include a special cameo from a top-secret celeb spokesperson. Well, she was top-secret, until the brand finally revealed on Jan. 19 that none other than Megan Thee Stallion will star in Doritos’ and Cheetos’ Super Bowl 2022 commercial. Just as fans guessed, the A-list rapper is holding down the spicy spot.

The Cheetos-Doritos crossover commercial will be centered around an old classic, Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Crunchy, and the latest fiery hot snack to hit the market, Doritos Flamin’ Hot Cool Ranch. If that weren’t already exciting enough, on Jan. 7, Frito-Lay released two images of the unnamed A-lister slated to appear in the spot holding the Flamin’ Hot treats, and fans immediately began guessing who it could be based on the clues in the pictures.

In the first pic, the mystery hand can be seen holding a Flamin’ Hot Cool Ranch Dorito and wearing a braided diamond ring. Meanwhile, in the second image, the hand shows off a Flamin Hot Crunchy Cheeto while donning a gold ring covered in jewels on the same finger. Both pics feature the same diamond bracelet and long, red-tip studded nails.

So, who does the blinged out hand belong to? People on Twitter had a few guesses: Some (correctly) thought the Flamin’ Hot spokesperson is the Hot Girl herself — Megan Thee Stallion — while others predicted Saweetie would make a major shift from the Icy Girl to the Spicy Girl.

One user also threw another name into the mix: Cardi B, which would have made it her third Super Bowl commercial, following her debut Pepsi ad in 2019 and her rockin’ Uber Eats spot in 2021.

All three singers have rocked some enviable nail designs that led their fans to believe they could be the Flamin’ Hot star. After some detective work, though, one Megan Thee Stallion stan solidified their case thanks to a post from Dec. 14, 2021 on Megan’s Instagram. In the picture, you’ll see a diamond ring and bracelet combo that looks very similar to the jewelry displayed in the Doritos pic, although the nails are not the bright red you see in the picture.

The pic is from her performance at the Washington, D.C. Jingle Ball on Dec. 14, and TBH, if you zoom in on the jewelry, it’s a pretty good case for Megan being the star of the Doritos and Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Super Bowl 2022 commercial.
