The hot seat

I just watched the AKC Agility National Championships on Animal Planet, which was incredible fun, especially with my Great Dane lying next to me, occasionally raptly watching. But I'm posting because of a hilarious exchange between the two commentators. A husband and wife entered their dogs in the same category; early on, the wife's dog was in first place, which the commentators referred to as the hot seat. So here's the exchange when the husband comes up to run:

Announcer #1: He's hoping to get his dog into the hot seat.

#2: But if he outperforms his wife's dog, he'll really be in the hot seat.


#1: You mean with his wife.


#2: Yes.
