Kelly Clarkson Takes the Challenge

February 5, 2018 - 6:15am

Kelly Clarkson is facing her hot pepper fears. The 35-year-old "American Idol" alum bravely bit into a pepper in the name of raising funds to end ALS, and posted the video on her social media last week.

She munched on the Habanero pepper after Trisha Yearwood challenged her to the ALS Pepper Challenge.

"Get ready Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton, and @OfficialAdamLevine for the #ALSPepperChallenge! Also, @BBlackstock I challenge you! #UrWelcomeFromYourLovingWife," Kelly captioned the funny video.

Clarkson ended up crying after she took a small bit out of the orange pepper, crying out, "My tongue is on fire! My actual tooth hurts... is that my molar?"

ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig's disease, is a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function.

After the famed Ice Bucket Challenge raised millions for ALS research in 2014, the pepper challenge was created by the Haberstroh family in honor of their mom Patty, who was diagnosed with ALS at the end of 2017 and was a social worker for over a decade.
