Kelly Clarkson Crunches on a Habanero Pepper for the ALS Pepper Challenge
As of today, Kelly Clarkson cannot stand Trisha Yearwood. Thanks to the ALS Pepper Challenge.
In a response to raise awareness on ALS and support the research behind it, many celebrities have joined in on the trending #ALSPepperChallenge.
On Thursday (February 1) evening, 35-year-old American Idol legend Kelly Clarkson took the challenge like a champ in a video she posted on her Twitter.
Challenged by fellow country singer Trisha Yearwood, with the help of Garth Brooks, the "Stronger" singer tested her spice tolerance with a habanero pepper. And it was low and very weak, to say the least.
After taking one bite into the little orange spice bomb, Clarkson began tearing up while chugging what seems to be a milkshake as she claims her "tongue is already on fire."
"Jesus, take the wheel," the singer said as . "Oh my god."
After drinking a beverage, sucking on an ice cube and continuously rubbing her face and eyes, the singer finally managed to name the next celebrities to take on the challenge.
"I want to challenge Blake Shelton, Adam Levine, Alicia Keys and the other Voice coaches. [...] And I'm bringing back on my husband (Brandon). You're welcome."
