To catch you up– the ALS Pepper Challenge was started after NBA writer Tom Haberstroh found out his mother was diagnosed with ALS. Kind of like the Ice Bucket Challenge of 2014, if you’re nominated, you have to eat a hot pepper.
We’ve seen a number of celebrities taking part in the challenge. Our favorite, until now, was obviously Kelly Clarkson because she freaked out, quoted Carrie Underwood and cussed.
Garth said he doesn’t eat spicy food, so he heated up a Dr Pepper in the microwave and drank it as Trisha downed a habanero pepper.
As Trisha asked for milk she looked at Garth and lovingly said, “I want to punch you.”
It was quite a moment.
